    The story is told that Jacob sold his birthright upon smelling the aroma of onions sauteing in olive oil. I would do the same, once some garlic and herbs were tossed into the pan. Heaven sent (scent) takes on a whole new meaning!

    On the same note, there is not a more objectionable smell than burnt garlic. Yuck!

    good smells: horses, babies, chocolate & fresh cut hay.

    bad smell: duck crap sprayed on the field next to my house (you can smell it for days!!), sewer & burned meat.

    I only wish that I had my sense of smell back... On occasion I can smell things, but not if I'm actually trying to....

    I REALLY miss smelling certain colognes on a guy...MMMMM....That's just such a wonderful scent that I really wish I could smell again....

    I DON'T miss all those horrible smells, rotting citrus groves, manure, this list could go on...But even these things, if I could smell all the time, I'd be happy to be able to smell these things again....

    I love the smell of a clean barn, with all the animals beded down for the night. I love the smell of cooking on a woodstove. I also like a fant wiff of desil (it brings back memories of living aboard a boat). I also love the smell of fresh herbs, lavender, and the flowers from my empress tree.

    Smells I cannot stand, pig menure, dog and cat menure, human menure and hen menure. I also hate the smell of my urine when I have a UTI, the smell of necrotic tissue, rotten food and garbage, just to name a few. There was a finish (like polyurethane but not exactly) that really wasn't a bad smell, but I hated it so that it made me sick to my stomach.

    Going back to TIRR (rehab in Houston), on entering I started gagging. It's not the smell, it's the memories associated.

    Agree on faint whiff of diesel...Takes me to first days of college, riding the bus, and trips to Europe.

    Love the smell of trains/subway stations. Don't know what the smell is, but it's the smell of adventure around the corner.

    Rain. It's an adventure kind of smell too.

    The ocean smell can go either way. Sometimes it smells of life and adventure, sometimes it stinks of dead fish.

    My dog. Even when he needs a bath, he smells of love.

    Babies can go either way LOL. When my son was born I cried when I left the hospital because I realized nobody was ever going to bring my that sweet-smelling freshly wrapped little bundle again. 17 years and a million sweaty gym socks later I can tell you I was right.

    I love the smell of some colognes.

    Also, tobacco. (unsmoked!)
    When I was little they still had cigarettes and other tobacco products out in their own aisle with everything else...this is before it was put behind the checkouts. Anyway, when we went grocery shopping my mom could always find me in the cigarette aisle just taking in the scent or smelling packs, haha.
    To this day, I still grab the containers of tobacco for rolling cigs or grab people's packs, open it, and just sit there and inhale.
    That scent is heavenly to me.
