Lol Kwilter, i read my post again afterwards and thats exactly what i read it as and i thought i'd made a typo...i didn't think anyone would notice....

on that train of thought - i do like a man in uniform

Yes I'd go for the fireman too, sweaty and smoky... Has to be clean sweat though not dirty rancid sweat

Other smells;

My loved ones neck and head (when I'm not single) although I did have a partner years ago with an odd smell I didn't like, not bad or dirty just different  


Thunder storm

Wet autumn leaves

Freshly cut grass/hay especially if  I can hear the lawnmower/combined harvester in the background

Jasmin, Hyacinth, Lillies and Lilac flowers in particular but all flowers and plants really

Petrichor (thanks for the new word)

Coffee beans/powder

Tobacco leaves

Baby heads and necks

Despite repetition it's got to be the following in this order:

1) Freshly cut grass (I run better if I can smell this!)
2) Fresh coffee
3) New car.

In fact, if I can drive out to the country in a new car, run through freshly mowed fields and have a fresh coffee when I get back to recover, thats a good day!

i read it as 'firefighters' too.....bring em on...preferably sweaty..and not wearing much except a bit of dirt...
27/08/2011 at 17:51

Mmm - don't know about the dirt....i quite like a clean look....

<ponders for about 1 second> - i'll just get him to call round BEFORE his shift starts......or i suppose if it was after his shift, i'd just have to insist he got out of the dirty uniform......<has face of innocence>

Edited for typo because I got carried away in my thoughts!!

A brand new vinyl record when you take it out of the sleeve the first time.

The countryside early on a late spring/early summer morning after rain

Like the fact you remember vinyl BOTF! I'm a bit of a vinyl collector. DO remember the static you get when you first take it out of the sleeve?

Anyway, was out running last night and we went past a pub that had its' “Curry and a Pint for a £5” night. The smell of curry in the cold night air was gorgeous.
