Good Thread Tree!

New Car Leather smell would top the list. My Allante still has a trace of it and its a 1993 model.

Rain on a hot summer day.

Steaks or burgers on the grill.

Freshly plowed field(guess you had to be there)

My wifes scent on her pillow.

My dog after a bath.

Cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven.

Oranges or orange sented anything.

Wood Smoke from a campfire.

And still thinking!

I'm with you on the freshly plowed field. Freshly turned earth is great!
As for the smoke from a campfire, I got that going out back right now. Burning branches in my Chimenea (sp). LOVE IT!

The smell of pine trees up in the mountains is another good smell. The Rocky Mountains in Colorado at least.

Normally I cant smell fresh falling snow because it seems once the temp gets cold (below 40) my nose just plugs up so I cant really smell anything..... :(

Smells that I love!

Smells that bring back pleasant memories......
How about the smell of fresh blooming magnolia trees in the spring time.
Grandma's old purse...
Grandpa's pipe...
Horses....
leather...like a new baseball glove..
The smell of the perfume of a long lost love...
The smell of new electronics burning in....( I'm a tech by heart).
The smell during a strong electrical storm...the smell and feel that it gives you.
and of course the smell of a new car!

The scent of garlic bread rising out of the Italian cafe into the orange tinted dusk sky.

(or whatever other romance novel description that will make garlic bread smell better to all you loonies.)

I was laying in bed last night thinking of all the smells I like..and this one came to mind. When I was a kid, I used to go to my Aunts house in north Jersey. Being Italian..she would cook the most incredible foods..so..one of my favorite all time smells is italian sausage, meatballs, fresh homemade gravy(sauce) cooking on the stove...the smell that filled the air..to die for! :worship:

I have an old Ford tractor. I think it's a 1958 model. There's some kind of smell that emanates from it after it's been run for an hour or more. It's a combination of oil, gas, coolant, and maybe rubber, but not exhaust. It's the smell coming off the engine after you turn it off.

Anyway, my wife's Z3 has the same smell.

I like the way puppies smell, too.

The smell of rain is really great because Albuquerque is pretty much a desert and this year it's in a drought.

Excellent thread! Some very cool stuff here.

My votes:
Christmas time = real tree, baking and turkey in the oven
Wet leaves in the fall
Lilacs in bloom
Bedsheets fresh off the clothesline
That wet, heavy black loam you only find in an old-growth forest
Early morning dew
Cedar
Fresh sawdust

Napalm in the morning...
