I don't know why, but I'm curious as to the favorite smells of my fellow SI'ers. And why, if you're willing to share.

Mine is cinnamon. Reminds me of Christmas.

I love the smell of freshly washed laundry. It just reminds me of 'cozy', and I love cozy .

Also, DD21 has a very distinct smell. It's sweet and clean and just...her. I love it. Whenever I kiss her on the cheek or on the head, it's more of an inhale. I can't get enough of it.

Baking bread. Pumpkin pie. Pine boughs. Vegetable soup cooking - always reminds of my grandma making soup.

Clean. I love the smells of crisp cotton, lemon, clothes off the line...

I love the smell of lilacs! We had a beautiful, big bush of them when I was a kid.

Also, all this talk of clean....I love the smell of a clean person, right out of the shower.

Love real jasmine, clean sheets after a shower, and baking chocolate chip cookies. Love anything coconut/tropical scented.

The smell of any type of evergreen trees growing in the forest when the wind catches them just right.

This makes me very happy!

Diesel and mud mixed with Old Spice deodorant. Sounds gross, I know, but my H drives a truck in the oilfield and that's how he smells when he comes home. Every day there is real danger in his job and sometimes he's gone for a week or more - so his smell is wonderfully comforting.
Besides that, baking bread (or anything baking really) and cinnamon and vanilla.

Love reading everyone's favorite scents. +1 to lavender, cinnamon, the ocean, the smell of your child's head...

frankincense and myrrh incense sticks
apple crisp baking
plants in general, purple roses and coyote brush in specific...
red velvet cupcake candle
gardenia, jasmine
the air after the rain
Angel's Trumpet, Butterfly Bush
the metal of the underground trains and escalators (only while pregnant - almost like a smell pica)
clean sheets
strawberries

Only one favorite smell? Hard to choose, there are so many wonderful things to smell in the world.
