    sometimes I'll be in certain parts of town like a shop or something and the
    potpouri will make me think of this scratch 'n sniff book I had when I was
    like four or early gradeschool age where it was about this grey cat with str-
    ipes and one of the things you had to scratch was this flower bed. I can't
    recall the name of the book but maybe that's why I like those "scratch to
    experience the fragrance" things that come in fashion magazines or in Avon
    catelogues. Brings back a peice of the innocent days and I feel calm and
    relaxed.

    The only smell that seems to evoke feeling in me is rain. It makes me introspective.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    Baby shampoo, damp earth, Dial soap, Tide detergent, stinky bob (the plant, not the homeless guy up the street), newsprint, and (original scent) Windex are all things that evoke a combination of feelings and memories as soon as they hit my olfactory receptors.

    -The smell of rain.
    -The smell of a body of water (ocean, lake, river).
    -The smell of burning wood on a fall day.
    -The smell of earth after a day of rain.
    -The smell of tall grass in the wind.
    -If it's late fall, the smell of something sweet, cinnamon-y and nutmeg-y baking.

    hmm, in my case it evokes...person. Sometimes past crushes >_>; not pleasant at all due to the emotion / unrequited feelings evoked. It's the smell of sun (when it's a little burnt) and another smell I can't say what, but sometimes I just smelled those and "....damn."

    Of course, there are another unrelated to crushes;the smell of vanilla sometimes reminded me of my sister.

    And then the feelings; the most usual would be the smell of rain; it evokes a feeling of melancholy and calmness at the same time.

    Whenever I smell diesel fuel, I'm reminded of my time in Northern Ireland, standing in the bus station after school. It also reminds me of being in the garage, when everyone was working. Sometimes the boys would take staggered smoke breaks, and when it rained, with the roll-tops up, I could smell warm engines, cigarettes and rain coming in on the breeze. It was extremely comforting. The garage was like a huge bunker for giant metal elephants. When it was thundering outside, I never felt uneasy in there. Things moved slowly at those moments.

    I feel that way about the smell of horses too.

    Whenever I smell my SOs perfume [Clinique Happy] I look around for her and my body immediately thinks she's around and gets very excited. But then I realize it's someone else. And I become sad.

    Drakkar Noir on any man (though he may not be personally attractive at all to me) is sexy, which is weird, and I'm assuming it's connected to memories.

    The smell of a wood burning stove reminds me of being a child.

    The smell of freshly mowed grass and gasoline cans reminds me of my grandfather.

    There's also a certain kind of cinnamon smell - though not the kind of strong air freshner cinnamon smell which I hate - (and at other times a lilac scent has a similar effect) that makes me feel inexplicably comforted and I have no idea why.

    I love the smell of rain, the smell of autumn coming, and the smell of clean hotel rooms and air planes.

    I'm really put off by certain perfumes because they remind me of someone from my childhood that I strongly disliked.

    Oh, totally. I will run with nostrils flaring to the scent of the ocean, even if I smell it distantly coming from a river after a rain storm. I love the smell of the ocean.
