Smells

Terri wrote today about house smells and it got me to thinking about smells.

 

I don’t smell well first thing in the morning. Not that I particularly stink but my olfactory senses don’t really kick in until mid morning.

 

So my sense of smell picks up around 10 AM and comes and goes throughout the day.

 

I love to smell stuff because so many deep memories are associated with smells.

 

I like to smell well personally too. I use dial soap, baby lotion, toothpaste and mouthwash to get a clean Wreggie smell. Because I can’t smell well I probably over compensate.

 

As people get older they tend to stink a bit because they don’t bathe as much.  Note to self….keep bathing even if I think I haven’t done anything to get dirty.

 

I like place smells like low tide at the beach in NC, SC and Georgia.  Low tide mud actually stinks but I associate the smell with happiness.

 

Jekyll Island Campground has a unique smell.  The ground smells peppery and in the morning it mixes well with campfires and bacon and coffee.

 

Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh cut grass, coffee brewing, and bacon cooking?

 

I personally like to smell pipes and cigars. I really love the smell of diesel fumes and once met another individual who had an affection for diesel fumes. The modern diesel fumes don’t smell as good as old diesels engines of my youth.  

 

And sometimes a woman will pass me that smells so good like a fresh white flowery trail of scent that is divine. I just want to bury my nose in her hair and breathe deeply.

 

I’m going to make an effort to smell stuff today.

One of my favorite smells is fresh cut lumber. I wish Yankee Candle would make one of those!

I like the smell of cookies baking. I tried one of those candles that smells like cookies once. I got so hungry I had to go to the store and buy some of those brake and bake chocolate chip cookies and bake some. I threw the candle away.

I like the smell of my own farts, something about your own brand just lights me up.

Oh and the smell of a campfire mesmerizes me.

Puppy breath, damp dogs and my wool sock drawer.

I love the smell of gasoline. And cedar. And lilacs.

And as you enjoy the scent of a woman, there are times I pass by a man and simply want to grab him and ask "WHAT IS THAT COLOGNE YOU ARE WEARING?"

"the scent of a woman" ....wow! That sounds so sexy.

Diesel doesn't smell as good as it used to?

That made me crack up - the ultimate nostalgia comment! Easily beats the "chocolate bars used to be bigger" one!

I used to have a friend who had no sense of smell at all. She regularly asked if she smelled OK.
