I love everything on this list but chlorine. I do love a real Christmas tree- nice one! ANd I just spent 3 hours grading papers and now I read this list and I'm starving! haha

I love every single thing you listed but new cars- good ones!! I should have added the grill, but I already had bacon. :)

The pool made my list! I didn't want to just put "Chlorine" lol :)

Here's the rest of mine:

Half of my list were food smells. Love that you included summer nights - that's a nice one!

I have a strong opinion about new cars. ;-) I LOVE that smell. And it seems like they smell like that forever and then one day they don't and you don't know when it started smelling like a regular car.

I like all of them! Glad I'm not the only one who likes the smell of chlorine.

I love the smell of chlorine. I used to put a cap full in my humidifier, everyone asked if there was a pool in the building LOL

Wayne W Smith said...

I am a big ocean fan too.

Marie said...

Chlorine, huh? I think it's fascinating how many people have included odd smells like strong disinfectant, gasoline, and permanent markers.

Yona said...

Ohhhh yes, freshly made salsa does smell really good - I LOVE the scent of cilantro in it (forgot that scent).

I also didn't realize it until just now...but I do like the faint scent of chlorine from a pool.

I also agree with the real Christmas trees and garlic <----my favorite spice.

Dana @ Kiss My List said...

My favorite is chocolate chip cookie smell, although garlic is a close second. Just not together.

Stacey said...

I also love the smell of real Christmas trees. The problem always lies in keeping them alive long enough to have Christmas! Great list!

Rory Bore said...

Yes to real Christmas trees. I cannot have a fake on for that very reason.

And yes, I think we all will be hungry after reading these lists. If nothing else, it's helped my plan dinner tonight! :)

Robbie K said...

ha..food was definitely on my mind when I wrote this. We ALWAYS have a real Christmas tree partly b/c I love the smell.

Robbie K said...

I love the smeel of bacon when it's being cooked...but afterwards when the smell hangs in the air...I could do without that.

Robbie K said...

ha..you have excellent taste.

Robbie K said...

Thanks! Were you hungry when you made your list or maybe we are both just food obsessed?

Robbie K said...

There is just something about new cars isn't there? Glad I am not the only one.

Robbie K said...

No you aren't weird for liking chlorine...or maybe we are both weird? :)

Robbie K said...

That is a wonderful idea...and I'll feel like i have an indoor pool!

Robbie K said...

I wonder if people who live by the ocean ever get tired of it's smell?

Robbie K said...

We're an odd bunch aren't we. I am amused that i strongly dislike any of the very popular smells (lavender, Vanilla, coffee)

Robbie K said...

I too love CILANTRO! It seems that our noses have much in common ;l)

Robbie K said...

ha...that would be a bit repulsive wouldn't it?

Robbie K said...

It's a challenge to keep them alive but well worth it.

Robbie K said...

And now I wonder what you planned for dinner tonight.

Corey @ Learning Patience said...

My husbands #1 is cookies baking... :-)

Kristin Blank said...

I almost put chlorine on my list. That's such a unique one, and I love swimming.

AudreyN said...

I totally forgot to put the ocean! But Salsa is a good one too!

Carpool Goddess said...

Love your list! BBQ, yes!!!!

Lillian Connelly said...

At first I thought chlorine was an odd choice, but, yes...summer! I totally get that. Your list made me hungry. I'd probably add coffee and rosemary plants in the rain.
