Freshly baked bread


dinglepumpkin

I used to drive by an industrial bakery on my commute home, and for those 10 seconds on the highway, all was right with the world. It’s such a comforting smell.


russau

One of my earliest memories is sneaking away from my grandma’s house at age 3 following the smell trail of an industrial bakery.


3percentinvisible

Did your nose extend and your feet lift off the ground? Was the smell of the bread visible and turned into a beckoning hand?


davidlol1

I thought this as i clicked and boom it was on top.. your definently correct.

Brownies right out of the oven


YeahNo_NoYeah

Brownies at any stage of production: batter to belly.


Nic4379

Batter direct-to Belly is my jam. Fucking love the batter more than the finished product.


Up-In-The-Bottoms

Speaking my language. Several times I've made brownie batter with no intention of cranking the oven up and bake anything. Just wanted to put in work on that sweet brownie brew ya feel me. Self proclaimed brown sludge bad boy here.

IslamicCheetah

Walking into a small local pizza place.


SeanCanary

Yeah, I'm out walking/jogging while on a diet and had to alter my route not to go near the local hole-in-the-wall pizza place. It smells sooo good.


iratebeef

the cold winter air.


vonhara

This, definitely The calmness waking up to a snowing day, opening up your windows with that combination of the white horizon and its very pure smell


BrustWarze_

I moved to the south some years ago. That is what I miss the most. Especially when it's those huge fluffy flakes.


Appointments_only

While I don’t like winter this smell Is great. It’s like the smell of all my summer foes have died. I am a great warrior. The ants and flies have fallen.

the mountains.


SAM5TER5

“See that mountain over there? That’s a good smelling mountain.” “The kind of pointy one on the left?” “Gross, no. Are you kidding? No. Fucking disgusting, trust me. The one on the right.”


pennant_fever

Nice try, Yankee Candle.

stevemak84

Came here to say this. My fav smell


Distribution-Awkward

Honeysuckle


Echo_are_one

Would add lavender, elderflower, dog rose. Planning a smelly corner of my garden next year!


YeahNo_NoYeah

Lilac is good too.


aricberg

Honeysuckle after it’s rained and cooled down from being a really hot summer day. It’s like the humidity carries the smell *everywhere*, and I love it!


YeahNo_NoYeah

My mom used to have a lilac bush at the corner of their house by the bedroom window. Mmm…


nuevedientes

100% Also flowers on citrus trees - they smell very similar to honeysuckle.


spoopygooch

Yes!


secretmissinvisible

Newly changed bed sheets.


Falling_is_fun

Getting in the right after a shower & shaving your legs… nothing beats that.


Crepti

Not familiar with the legs, but as a guy that shaves his head I think we might have one-upped it. Think of that sensation all over your head, nuzzling into a fresh pillow. Absolute bliss.


vk2786

Bonus points if they have been line-dried and smell like summer sun/fresh air.


GH_Art

Salty sea water in the air


adamsbrad47

The lumber section at Home Depot


Notyoaveragemonkey

I read this a lumberjack section at first scan. That’s cool!


randypupjake

I mean I would be fine with both


Notyoaveragemonkey

What do you mean you are out of red flannel wearing lumberjacks?


neilsaccount05

I used to work there in that department and I'd just hang out by the cedar all the time taking in the aroma.


[deleted]

Campfires


VeniVidiUpVoti

I must have a mutation I can smell campfires from literal miles away before anyone around me can. I don't know if it's stronger too but oh god i literally have to stop what I'm doing and smell. Also should say a particular type of wood idk which works best.


Sahri

There is a small chance you might actually be a dog.

My maternal grandfather’s pipe tobacco. I haven’t smelled it in at least 35 years, (he quit about 45 years ago, then died, and the last time I smelled it was at a shop in a mall) but I bet I’d still recognize it. I’m as anti cigarette /cigar smoking as they come. My mother died of emphysema and I have asthma. But the memory of my grandfather and his pipe is a happy one.


sn0wbl1nd3d

My grandfather smoked pretty much all his life. Salem was his brand. That smell was on everything he touched: his workbench, tools, his truck. I inherited all of those and the smell is slowly fading away. But every now and then, it’ll come back like a fresh cigarette was just lit. He’s been gone almost 8 months now, but that smell is comforting. I partake in cigars now and then, so I’m not entirely against smoking. I even kept his last full pack of Salem.


labratnc

Chlorofo….


YeahNo_NoYeah

You okay, buddy? Buddy! BUDDY?

Oddly specific, what does that even smell like?


Garconanokin

Bromine. Instead of chlorinating the water, they use bromine, and it has a very distinctive smell. I’m working on getting Matt Stone and Trey Parker to convert the fountains at Casa Bonita to this system. So far, they’ve refused.

I just got a candle called Flume that smells exactly like the potc ride!!!

luizzifoshizzi

Pussy, the anticipation before doing the deed, that foreplay stage. When you nuzzle your nose right up to her vagina while she’s still wearing panties. Can’t describe it but it’s an intoxicating musk. Sorry for the graphic description but I can’t describe it any other way.


RarestandFairest

I just asked my husband if this is a thing 🤣

I love the scent of my wifey's skin. It can smell calming, comforting or alluring or all at once. I also quite like the smell of sandalwood

I was gonna say this but didn't know how. Your wife's skin is amazing... *teasing.* ... but really that smell of your lover or mate. That unique to them smell.
