    Your Favorite Scents/Smells

    New baby. And they're all different.

    Puppy breath. Sorry, beat you to it. This is actually number one, but on day #2, I can't list it that way. Think of this as "I liked E.T. better but voted for Gandhi..."

    In that order...

    I had a girlfriend who had a spectacular natural smell - and when she added the right perfume...

    When I was a kid, it was the mixed smell of a newly opened pack of baseball cards and bubble gum. Occasionally, my brain will relaunch that scent out of the blue. Wow.

    I spent about 20 years in the fragrance business and, at one time, probably the late '80's or early '90's, there was a company that came out with a line of fragrances based upon some of the smells mentioned here. Like freshly cut grass or newly turned earth. It did well at first but I think it's long gone now.

    Golf course in the morning.

    Spring. It isn't one smell but when the weather warms up, the windows open, and everything just tends to smell a little more crisp.

    Popcorn.

    Actually, I like the scent of a fresh cigar. Then someone lights it and that all changes.. Oh well,......

    Same with cigarettes. It's the tonka bean oil.
    And a lot of people like the earthy scent of a freshly plowed field, which is caused by actinomycetes bacteria.

    Forgot my work shirt for my workout yesterday morning, so stopped off at JC Penny afterwards and bought a new PGA Tour branded golf shirt on sale. It had a new shirt smell (must have been that dry fit golf shirt material) and I was smelling it all day. It was aswesome. I even commented to my co-workers how this smell was making my day more enjoyable. Wish I could bottle that up and wear it every day.
