I like coconut or Pina Colada in the car. It reminds me of the beach, sand, etc. I also like the smell of the exhaust coming out of an engine that's running a little rich. I like that organic smell of dirt, and that funny metallic smell of an impending rain. I like the smell of a well used kitchen, or a campfire, as well as the smell of a good Reisling or a highball glass with a few fingers of Maker's Mark.

Coffee. I don't drink it, but I like the smell.

Roses. Lovely.

A rainstorm. Cool and wet, and slightly moldy.

A travelling carnival. A combination of diesel exhaust, funnel cakes, sweat, smoke, dry dust, popcorn, cotton candy and hot asphalt.

Bread baking. Cliche for a reason.

New Car. The smell of luxury, of a clean start, and of unblemished upholstery.

How can you ask for my favorite scent and then demand that malicious remarks be deleted when in fact my favorite scent is, in some thesauratic definition QUITE "malicious"? And why you aKs? If you have to ask why, you've never had the pleasure of plunging nose-deep in this like-nothing-else-on-earth aroma. Oh, the Scent of a Woman ... hooowahhh!

Baking turkey.

Probably because it's yummy and I only got to have it twice a year while I was growing up.
