Your favourite smells that are NOT perfumes...

I am getting more and more discerning with the smell of products in general, not just perfume, and I think they contribute just as much to your "smell". I love the smell of Aussie volumising shampoo and conditioner, and I have an abahnabody lotion that I love that smells of. Honeysuckle. I love layering on lots of lovely smells. I have yet to find a clothes washing detergent that I truly love though. What are your favourite non-perfume smells? smile

Lots of the above but I haven't seen one of my favourites here: the smell inside a sauna, all woody and hot. Years ago the Body Shop did some bath salts inspired by Japan that had just the same smell...

And printer's ink. And the smell of a book hot of the press.
