Take a whiff

ATTENTION LURKERS: I know you have favorite smells. Everyone does..... Delurk already.

Having just taken a big breath of hot rain, I got to thinking about my favorite smells. What are your top 5?

5) Summer thunderstorm
Not very original.
4) Starbucks bathroom soap
Seriously. That stuff smells great.
3) Jasmine.
The actual flowers, not pseudoscent. They remind me of India. They were incorporated into womens' braids and garlands. It's a bonus if they happen to be mixed with the smell of street vendors' cooking. As you can imagine, that doesn't happen too often.
There is something very nostalgic about it. I suppose because I grew up with a wood stove in the basement.
1) Breastmilk breath. There is not a sweeter smell on earth than baby's breath au booby-milk. I heard someone describe it as "applesauce breath". That's pretty close, but I think it's really indescribable.

I love spicy smells, and I love the smell of fresh baked chocolate cookies. Pancakes, definitely pancakes. Mmm, that's about all I can come up with.

Does Starbucks bathroom soap smell like Bandaids? I find the bandaid scented soap fascinating.
