    Paper mill towns smell pretty bad, too.
    Paper mills are horrible smell offenders. There's a paper mill about 13 miles from where I live and every so often the smell makes its way down here, if the wind and humidity are just right. It's like walking outside into a sewer.

    True, we hardly notice anymore and when we do, we get sentimental about it
    Florence smells of water on dusty streets. A very specific smell.
    I associate France with the smell of wheat in the North, lavender in the South.

    I associate a number of scents with Russia, but the most peculiar is the combination of fresh bread, raw fish, and cheap chocolate. Most of the small shops where I bought my groceries smelled like that. At first I thought I was going to choke with the awful combination, but after a few months I began to find the strange scent comforting and soothing.

    Los Angeles and Philadelphia smell differently (moisture, most likely). The Lancaster area smells of manure (especially the Amish communities).
    Had me going there for a minute. We have a Lancaster and I'm relatively certain there are no Amish there!

    I can't imagine not having a good sense of smell; it's such a large component of enjoying food and drink.

    Victoria, British Columbia.

    The smell of the ocean, the sand, the brisk winds, the mist, the damp air particularly bombard my senses whenever I'm home.

    Especially walking through Mystic Vale.

    i remember walking through the streets of "El Alto" in La Paz, Bolivia..."Ciudad Satelite" standing at about 15,000ft above sea level. It's a poor city and as you walk further into it you can smell food at every corner from vendors and then shit, most likely from all the stray dogs in the area...so a good combination of food and shit smells LOL so gross but quite an experience.
