Cake straight out of the oven

Hubby's cooking (usually)

The cork from a bottle of wine

Wild flowers

And also most of the ones already mentioned, although I don't think I have ever smelt a freshly washed lady garden.

Edited again. Tarmac when being laid was not supposed to be rude!

New carpet and the glue used to stick vinyl tiles down.

My Dad was a floorcovering specialist and these smells remind me of childhood.

The general whaft of barbeques on a sumer's evening.

The smell of a 2 stroke bike as it goes by.

I've not long got in, sat down and opened the thread.  I would have been terribly upset if someone hadn't done 'napalm....' within 6 posts.

I'm glad you didn't let me down, BDB.
