Here are mine ๐Ÿ‘ƒ.

Sudocrem.

Any kind of bread when it has just come out of the oven ( especially garlic bread)

Rosemary, dried or fresh from the plant

Thyme, dried or fresh from the plant. I grow this sometimes just to smell it ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Canโ€™t think of any more at the moment, so...what are yours?

So, what are yours?

Gorse in bloom. Coast path walks from about March onwards are absolute bliss due to the near constant smell of gorse and the sound of the birds that hang around on the gorse bushes.

I finally found a Gorse perfume a few months ago and I love it.

And basil. Whenever I water the basil on my kitchen window the smell just fills the room for a few minutes and I imagine Iโ€™m in Italy.

Ooh, and my dog's forehead.

I used to work for a commercial wallpaper company, the vinyl samples smelt fantastic. After that I went to work for a commercial flooring company and used to sniff the carpet sample books there

Cowshit, creosote, freshly-mixed plaster, old-fashioned tea roses, hen feed, secondhand bookshops, greenhouses, turf smoke.

I need to find out what this Petrichor is, now that a couple of people have mentioned it.
