I love the smell of fresh laundry, the ocean before you can see it you can smell it, puppy breath & clean babies.

I don't remember my grandfather, who passed away when I was 18 months old, but I do remember how he smelled of cherry pipe tobacco, how he made me feel when he held me. I guess that's why even after 42 years of being told smoking is bad for me. It's still hard to quit. .... And yes I smoke cherry tobacco, I make my own cigarettes.

As I get older, my preference changes. My most favorable scent is the smell of my children after nursing, or after they had a bath with "Baby Magic." As they got older, the smell of a clean kid after a nice bath or shower is always appreciated. As men, they have great hygiene and always smell 'fresh.'

Never realizing how a spruce grove smells until I quit smoking. No joke I remember stopping in my tracks and crying and not leaving that spot....and repeat OMG do you smell that...its heavenly! I never realized that a smell could move you and how much I missed as a smoker.

Plumeria scented lotion, body spray always reminds me of being in Hawaii!!!! Strawberries and Champagne reminds me of my time in Europe, and vanilla reminds me of So Cal!!! I also remember the flavor of Bahama Mama of the Slush Puppy drink and gum. Always used to get it when I was a kid.

I have a few... My grandma's sister owned a bakery and I loved the smell. My next one would be the scent of "Most Precious" perfume, it reminds me of a friend who died when we were 16. Then there is the smell of my husbands shaving cream... When we were dating he would kiss me bye in the mowning before going to work... Getting woke up to that smell and seeing him in his uniform always put butterflies in my tummy... Still does 7 1/2 years later. And lastly... The smell of my daughters when they were babies!! I love the smell of babies!!

Probably strange to some, but the smell of my Dad's socks and his cigars. He would kick off his workboots every night when he'd come home and then put his feet up and smoke a cigar while he waited for dinner to be ready. I used to give him a big kiss on the cheek and he's sit me on my lap and ask me what I did that day. This was the highlight of every day because I was a total Daddy's girl lol. I never found his foot odor to be gross. It was more of a dusty, leathery "guy" scent mixed with his cigar and filled the room. It always made me feel safe and happy I guess just because I knew daddy was home!

Oddly enough, I found a bar of Dove soap from when my mom last came to visit. I had run out of my own soap and used it. After my shower, I realized my mom always smelled like Dove in the evenings after her nightly shower. It was calming and relaxing....And I'm 32 years old!

I must say that anything Vanilla is my all time favorite of mine. Now when it comes to cologne BKE or ADIDAS. They are the only scents I could stand to smell during my last pregnancy.

Honestly, my most memorable scent memory would have to be the birth of my first child. The freshness and loveliness of your own child before they have even been cleaned.. I have no doubt no mother in the world would dispute me.
If I could bottle new born baby smell, I'd be a squillionaire... :)

Aramis and Tea Rose remind me of my parents :) I'm a Paloma Picasso girl... but when I was pregnant, I couldn't stand the smell of it, so I switch to One, a milder fragrance. For some reason, after my pregnancy, my sense of smell has heightened to the point where it's too sensitive to certain fragrances.

My mother used to wear this really earthy perfume mostly when I was a toddler. After my parents split and I was living with my dad, any time I would get a whiff of it I would feel like she was right there with us. Now I have a little carved wooden box that she used to keep it in and when I miss her I get it out and I'm instantly 8yrs old again. It still brings me out of whatever funk I'm in.

Estee Lauder Youth Dew, every time I smell this perfume I look to see if my mother is around, then I realize that is silly, she lives far away from me.

I love the smell of Crayola crayons. Not any old crayons will do but Crayola. I had this large rotating stand full of those things when I was little. Sometimes when I clean my son's room, I can't help but hold one up to my nose. It takes me back. hehe

Amusingly enough, the smell of Vicks. It reminds of so many different things such as my dad (apparently, it was his cure all!).

Hmm... that is so hard.. There are so many of them. I think the best one is when you walk in the door at Grandma's house ( I lived with her most of my life) especially when it is a holiday and you can smell the Turkey, apple pie, and all the fixens all together.

The other one the way it smells after the rain has fallen. It makes me just want to sit out side all day.

The first time that you hold your child, no matter what kind of delivery ( mine were all C-sections) but when I was allowed to hold them, and then I smelled them. :D It was the greatest memory for me. :)

My most memorable scent would be a perfume called DESIGN. I don't think they make it anymore. it was not too strong and not too sweet. It reminded me of my mom.

The smell of the heat being turned on for the first time every year. Yes I know its the smell of dust burning but it makes me think of when I lived at home and my dad would finally break down and turn the heat on for the first time that year. It was always as we went to bed. As I smelled it Id instantly feel warm and cozy all over.

There's a scent I have an extremely hard time describing. Well there's 3 that are tied and 2 are hard to explain. My main scent takes me back to my first husband. (we still talk) It's a scent that was in the deep woods up north of us. We use to go motorcycling through the woods and joy riding.:) It's slightly musky,woodsy, plant based, yet has a hint of almond.I found an essential oil at a store called Indian Weavings years ago from tree of Life, called Shalimar. It WAS the smell! The store is gone and the closest to that smell I've found is Twilight Woods and True Blue Spa lotion, Cashmere and silk, each at bath and body. The 2nd smell, is a spicy/ black pepper scent when driving in the country.I get a whiff every so often if my windows are down. It smells like the little old man that went door to door selling Watkins spices when I was growing up on the farm. Last but not least is the lovely aroma of a field of clover in summer. Mmmmmm.:)

My moms perfume. Charlie. To this day, if I find it, I stop and buy a bottle just to spray it in the air sometimes and smell it. ♥

I would have to say cherry tobacco in a pipe:) Mmmmmmmmm! It reminds me of my old neighborhood, where I grew up. A very beautiful, peaceful and safe neighborhood-- at least, it used to be... But that's another story, lol.

there's not a name to it and it doesn't sell in stores lol... the scent of cows and hay is my fav. it sounds weird but I raised steers in high school and every time I go to the county fair I LOVE the smell when we go by the barns. it brings me back. and I love love love the smell of old spice. If I am out and I go by a uy with original old spice I immediately think of my hubby. it's usualy when I'm mad at him. I forgive him just because of that smell : ) it reminds me of the days when we would hang out in the summer no cares or worries. and cuddle at the park and laugh.. I miss him :( he's at work lol
