    Baking brownies
    The cork of a wine bottle
    The smell of BBQ
    Tobasco
    My grandfather's basement - musty
    Old vinyl records

    That's all I can think of now

    For all the out of towners. Downtown Cincinnati has scent all by itself. It's not a bad one either. Go to the Museum (union) and sniff from there.

    Dirt and I don't mean myself. Reminds me of my baseball glove.

    Fresh baked bread. My old grade school used to make some of the best rolls I have ever eaten. Sometimes I can still smell them they were so good.
    Fresh coffee with the aroma of fresh bacon frying in the background.
    Freshly opened package of bubble gum cards.

    Did they have one that smelled like the beach?

    Fall. People have mentioned wood smoke and burning leaves (thanks woy, for telling me I'm old) and I think those are part of it, but I don't think it's that limited. It's that one night when you walk outside and you smell fall. Same with winter.

    And books. new and old.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Most of mine have been mentioned, but I don't recall anyone mentioning Topps baseball cards, fresh out of the pack, when they were nothing but plain ol' cardboard and had that slab of gum with them.

    That's one of mine, too. A few others:
    Fresh baked apple pie
    Fresh baked bread
    Fresh baked oatmeal cookies
    Fresh baked pumpkin nut bread.....for some reason I'm getting hungry
    Fresh brewed coffee
    Tobacco curing (I hate all forms of smoking but love the smell of tobacco)
    New car smell (especially my current one)
    Leather
    Freshly cut hay
    An ocean breeze, especially on the first day of a vacation
    A walk just after a rain
    One more that hasn't been mentioned by anyone.....my wife
