lavender
rosemary
true Lilac blooms (not crape myrtle)
Honeysuckles
Almond Extract
fresh cut hay field
cakes, cookies, bread ; actually Anything that is baking in the oven especially on a nice crisp Fall day
Freshly washed clothes that have been hanging outside on the line.

Babies just after a bath. A ripe grapefruit. Growing flowers like gardenias. Magnolia tree flowers. A summer night heavy with humidity while you're sppeding down a highway. The first day of Fall weather.

Colleen said...

Getting off subject here but found out early this morning(still dark outside) that our neighbor killed a rattle snake in his yard. Hubby got home around 6am and the neighbor yelled at him to watch for snakes in our yard.
That is one thing that I really don't like to know;(well nice to know) but I wouldn't want to see one.

1. fresh-cut clover or alfalfa hay curing in the warm sun on a perfect baling day. 2. freshly milled cowfeed. 3. (tie) freshly turned compost pile/leaf mold/plowed ground, tied with my mom's beef roast in the oven. 4. perfectly ripe homegrown fruit/veggies - apples now, but canteloupe, peaches and tomatoes are my faves at other times. --suz, in a farmy part of ohio

Little Julie said...

Wow!! What a reality check! Here I was smiling, drifting, thinking of all these lovely smells everyone is listing & remembering my own and bam! a rattlesnake slithering around the yard pops into my head. I'm with you & hope you don't see one either. OK back to babies & flowers...

Little Julie said...

Lilacs at night, bacon cooking while the coffee is brewing, hamburgers on the backyard grill, the boardwalk at the Jersey shore, roses, burning fall leaves, Thanksgiving dinner, the Christmas tree when my dad brought it in the house & cut the string, new babies, apple pie in the oven, the woods early in the morning, fresh basil, any Italian Festival, hot apple cider & sheets off the clothesline. Thanks for asking this, it was so nice reading all the answers!

Coffee, fresh cut grass, leaves in fall, fog, the way the air smells before a rain, lemons, lavender and fresh linen candles. Catherine in south MS

Colleen said...

Julie; it's very uncommon to see any snakes really in our area. A little garden snake once in awhile but out of 15 years living here I have only seen one tiny garden snake but nothing like a rattler or any other snakes for that matter.
I just hope I never come across one. Will be the first for the neighbors seeing a little old lady running as fast as she can running through the neighborhood screaming her fool head off.

Colleen said...

Interesting reading everyone's favorites. Was something different and made for a great posting.
Thank U

Peels? Cool, love them all!

1st Man said...

Pears soap? I'll have to look for that....Christmas, ah yes! And tomato! Definitely!

1st Man said...

What great choices!! Thanks!

1st Man said...

Wonderful, my imagination goes wild!

1st Man said...

Love it!!

1st Man said...

Oh yes, love that!!! Especially when it's Winter and cold.

1st Man said...

What great choices!!! Thanks!

1st Man said...

Can't say as I've ever smelled the Great Salt Lake but I can imagine it might be kinda strong? Love fresh cut grass too. Thanks for sharing!

1st Man said...

Oh yes, love marigold smell here too! So unique.

1st Man said...

Lotsa votes for puppies, they do have great puppy breath!! You're right too, so many foods that smells so wonderful.

1st Man said...

Lavender comes up a lot too....love it. And drying clothes ON Lavender? That sounds heavenly!!!

1st Man said...

Ooh, yes, love vanilla too. And the wood department of stores like Home Depot, etc. Funny, I like the smell of patchouli too, but 2nd Man hates it. With a passion, ha.

1st Man said...

Hmm, interesting, I think I know what you mean about a clean stable. And my Dad smoked a pipe and I loved that smell. And all leather smells so good.

1st Man said...

Thanks, isn't it fun? I'm really glad to have posted this, wonderful to read. I'm not finished replying to all comments but will!

1st Man said...

What a wonderful list. I forgot about lysol. We had a cleaning crew at an office i worked at once and they would do the floors with pinesol and I just loved that smell when I cam in the next day, ha. Snow? What a great thing to mention too.

1st Man said...

LOVE IT! Bacon and vanilla, two of natures most perfect things, ha. And more puppy votes!!! :-)

1st Man said...

Lemon tree blossoms? I hope we have some on our trees in a couple of years (after i get them planted, ha). Antique roses smell SO good. Like a rose SHOULD smell, ha. Great suggestions, thanks!

1st Man said...

Love it! (but don't speed, LOL!). Clean babies, mmm! Yep! And first day of Fall, especially when there is that hint of fireplace burning somewhere.

1st Man said...

YIKES! Rattlesnake? Now THAT'S scary! And I'm with Little Julie, yep, Colleen brought us all a reality check, ha!!!! And Colleen, I'd probably be running beside you, ha.

1st Man said...

Having never been around that, I can imagine though it's wonderful, especially warmed in the sun. Oh and freshly turned soil/dirt smells wonderful. And beef roast, I love that smell too. It makes me look forward to dinner even more, ha. Thanks Suz!!!!

1st Man said...

Oh my, how could I not remember CHRISTMAS TREES?!?!? They smell WONDERFUL! And sheets off the clothesline, yes! I haven't been to an Italian Festival but seeing as how it's probably my favorite food, um yeah! Thanks for sharing yours and yes, this we LOVED seeing these answers too. Very uplifting!!

1st Man said...

I think I agree with all of those. I don't like coffee to drink but I LOVE the smell of it. Lavender is SO wonderful. Old Yankee Linen candles? Love those too. Thanks for listing yours, we love them!
