Smells That Are Good


Memories, imagination, old sentiments, and associations are more readily reached through the sense of smell than through any other channel.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
Here are a few smells that I love, mostly I think because of the memories associated with them:

  • Summer storms
  • Christmas trees
  • New books
  • Jasmine
  • Baked earth
  • Wet asphalt
  • Purple
  • Salt air
Are there any particular smells that put a smile on your face?
