I’m being nosey but this question is not to be sniffed at.

That is a fine answer @RedDeerGuy1 but just a note, it doesn’t have to be food!

@lucillelucillelucille Gorgeous blooms, not such a great name for a female human.

vanilla extract

Yep, vanilla. I even had a spoonful without telling grandma, what a mistake for a kid!

The smell of pine forests around Big Bear Lake when the temperature went above 85* F, driving or hiking on the fire roads.

Coffee. My mother’s morning coffee.

When she finally offered me a taste—what a disappointment. Nearly as bad as vanilla extract.

With respect to vanilla, I still don’t really understand how anything that smells so good (in a “Drink Me” way, not like perfume) can taste so bad.

@Patty_Melt Mine are all in full bloom right this second, they smell sooooo good. What a great memory for you!

The smell of jasmine, which I associate with my grandmother’s house. Additionally, the smell of the pine forests at Lake Tahoe. The bark of the Jeffrey pine smells like vanilla and it’s in the air up there.

I recall vividly the smell of the interior of a Rolls Royce car.

My great g’mother’s pancakes.

My grandfather’s cigars.

The county Fair. The livestock, fresh hay, and straw, cotton candy, popcorn. Fresh grease in carnival rides. Tent vinyl. Oh my gosh, it all blends together to make the sensory heaven I hope I can have as I draw my final breath.
Is there a county Fair candle?
