Sniffing out a new journal theme...

Have you heard that certain smells trigger your memory more than any other sensory stimulus?  I was thinking about that when I  decided to journal my top ten personal list of sensational scents.  I didn't have any trouble thinking of smells that triggered good feelings, but I edited a few that others might think are weird!  What smells just make you happy?  List the odors that remind you
of things and places and even people  you love.  The journaling on  my last two got cut off.   9 says "The mix of ocean breezes,salt-water and sunbathers at the beach.  Number 10 is chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven.  Of course, when I told my husband what I was listing he asked about my weird one first, LOL.  If you leave a comment here and want to know I'll let you in on my sniffing secret.

I was just thinking last night that one of my most favorite smells in all the world is my baby's breath... he fell asleep in my arms and was breathing close to my face- his breath just smells so sweet. *sigh*

Well, of course I want to know what the 'weird' one is :] I love all the things that you mentioned, including fresh spearmint, that new car smell, our Bichon after she's been pampered, and a tiny touch of Brut on my hubby.

None of them seem that weird to me - but then maybe that says something weird about ME, lol. Anytime I smell suntan lotion, it instantly triggers pleasant memories of being at the beach...

Btw - there's a pic of you at the bridal shower, somewhere in my current, overly-long blogpost - and you're even holding the Somerset mag with your article in it - pop by when you get a chance! ;)
