TT Smells I've always liked - aka Where did my brain cells go?

Week # 56, my #11 TT Get the T13 code or view other s :)

  1. Gasoline ... better sniff it up, it's going fast!
  2. Magic Markers ... or are they just called Markers nowadays? Not the washable type. The kind with that .... you know ... smell... not the fruit flavoured ones....well okay, they're next...the kind that I'm sure is bad for you if you sniff it too much.
  3. The fruity smelly colourful markers for kids .... actually they're for adults too. We use them at work for team building exercises and HR type training (you know, the ones where they bring out all the toys to stimulate your creativity so you can learn). Cheeky and Pup know what I'm talkin' about.
  4. OK I think we're finished with the chemical kinda stuff, on to better things. Fresh baked bread.
  5. Coming home from school and smelling cookies or brownies that my mum made.
  6. 'Beautiful' by Estee Lauder
  7. Coming home and smelling supper already cooked. That's the second thing I notice when I walk in the door after greeting the pups.
  8. Bleach ... when I've been cleaning. Let's me know my kitchen is sparkly fresh and void of tea stains in the sink. Otherwise, i don't like the smell of bleach because it makes me think I should be cleaning! (Plus it reminds me of Mum RIP, she was a bleachaholic ... so that's where I get it from?, note to self)
  9. The forest
  10. coffee ...omg I can't believe I got to 10 before saying this. Flavoured coffees too, Irish Cream, Orange Brandy, Vanilla, Mocha.
  11. Babies ... I inhale them...o except when they poop.
  12. Freshly laid tar....sorta, kinda ...oh now we're back to chemicals are we? Ok well I'll slip in oil. Not burned oil from a car but fresh car oil.
  13. Vitabath or any natural but strong smelling bath product (usually make bubbles too) made from herbs, camomile, lavendar etc.

Done....but I could have thought of more.

What do you like to smell?


Knitting Maniac said...

I love the smell of coffee, the smell of a baby's head right after a bath, the smell of my childrens' heads any time of the day, and the smell of those old Magic Markers ... the blueberry and cherry ones! Love those!

Tink said...

Gasoline? No thanks! ;-) The forest after it has rained, the sea... nature smells are the best!
My TT is about online CD/DVD/Books stores.

Cheeky said...

Yep - love the smell of gas - always have. Yep, gotta love those markers (oh and the fruity ones too). I used to wear Beautiful all the time. I changed to White Diamonds years ago and now it is my signature smell I guess....

My TT will be up soon - and yeah - its about the 80's again...haha

Lisa said...

Such a wonderful list. I find that scent is a very strong memory prompt for me. I :heart: the smell of gasoline. Everyone always thought I was crazy for it! ;-) I had my driveway paved with black top last summer and it was heavenly to smell.

Magic markers, coffee, bleach, babies (sans poop!) are all excellent ones!

Thanks for a great list, ICL!
Have a super Thursday. :-)

I love the smell of babies, but I like to hand them back after getting a whiff!! I clean with Clorox Clean-up, there's 2 spray bottles and 2 refill bottles under the sink, I'm always afraid I'm going to run out.

I like the way Terry smells after work. I know it sounds gross, but there's something about, maybe it's the idea, the smell of hard work. I don't know how to say it.

Oh and my step-mom had an extra monitor in her basement and gave that to me.

The Naked Nerd said...

Forgot one. The smell of living in the country. It's when the farmers go out and spread fertilizer on their fields. :)


I like the smell of almost all in your list except for gas. It makes me dizzy.
My T13 is up too.

Karen said...

coffee & magic markers- they don't make markers like that anymore! and a clean house, today mine smells like damp dogs...
(btw- now that I'm thinking about it, I can't remember if I responded to all the nice comments you left me last weekend- my brain cells are gone, to. but thanks!)

Deb said...

My mom loves that Beautiful fragrance, too :)
No better smell that fresh perked coffee!
Have a fantastic Thursday...mine's up, too :))

Kimba said...

The smell of gas? Really?!?? I'd definately have to go with the fresh baked bread...though I never bake any. Maybe you're my inspiration for the week!

come visit mine too!

Southern Girl said...

Oh, dear, I'm another lover of the heady aroma of gasoline! I also like to smell my cat. Not her litter box, mind you...just the cat.

My TT is up, too:

nwscrapmom said...

Just stumbled across TT and decided to read a few. Fun! I like the smell of gasoline, too. Takes me back to my childhood ~ Dad owned a service station (I wasn't allowed to call it just a gas station *G*). Coffee rates real high on the list and anything with a strong almond smell.

YellowRose said...

"Beautiful" by Estee Lauder is my perfume!! When I wear it, which is all the time, someone will comment that I smell, "beautiful" I say thanks, it's "Beautiful!" ;) They always give me a funny look. LOL

And coffee...Oh My...I LOVE the smell of coffee!! Flavored coffee's, I'm in heaven!

Great list, happy TT, mine is up!

Mr. Fabulous said...

I like the smell of brand new money. Is that weird?

Barbara said...

I love the smell of fresh baked bread, and love to eat it! Also Estee Lauder, coffee at Barnie's Coffee Shop, and fresh bathed and lotioned down babies! They are the sweetest.

My TT is up.

Candy Minx said...

Smells...um I love the smell of old cars. I love the smell of rain in the ain forest. A temperate rainforest especially(pacfic northwest)

Fun list and you know what, I like the smell of carbon paper, gas, liquid paper! Uh oh!

My TT is here


Lindsey said...

Ahhh, you've got a marker thing, LOL! It's OK, I won't tell. Happy TT!

Gracie said...

Remember the old copy machines? The ones with the fluid that printed in the purple ink? I LOVE the smell of those copies just after printing! When I was in school, I'd always sniff my paper. If the teacher had recently printed it, it would still smell heavenly (to me). LOL

Fresh coffee, babies, the air after it rains, roses...these are a few of my favourite things!

Chelle Y. said...

I use Beautiful!

I love the smells of the fruity markers too. Wow, what memories!

The Naked Nerd said...

DK said...
