10 of my favorite smells.

1. a freshly brewed cup of coffee. of course this list starts with my favorite drink. (one I wouldn't want to live without!)

2. the holidays. especially thanksgiving cooking and the christmas tree.

3. mrs. meyer's clean day dish soap. lavender scent. I love washing dishes when I use this soap.

4. clean laundry, just out of the dryer.

5. freshly ironed pillowcases.

6. balenciaga.

7. fresh flowers, especially roses and lilacs.

8. just-mowed grass.

9. the ocean.

10. rain hitting hot pavement. but not in a busy city. this smell is only good if there aren't many cars around.

  1. I use that same dish soap. I do not love doing dishes, though! I should have put sheets hung out on the line on my list, you made me think of that.

  2. great list! #10 made me laugh! so true. i can't believe i forgot coffee. i obviously compiled my list last night.

  3. I almost put the rain on pavement thing. I do like it but Emma hates that smell. Weird, huh? I totally forgot about the fresh cut lawn!!!

  4. The ocean! I thought of that and didn't write it down. We used to live on the Isle of Palms in SC and that is such a wonderful smell.

  5. I just discovered #3, and I love the basil scent. Can't wait to put it in my soap dispenser at the kitchen sink! Great list :)

  6. i stole a few of yours, i'm fairly sensitive to smells, so the bad ones sometimes stick out as much as the good.

  7. I can't believe that I forgot two of mine! Lemon (which isn't on your list) and fresh mowed grass! They are the smells of summer.

  8. Great list... how could I leave out Thanksgiving dinner? Happy TOT!

  9. Good list - I'd add the smell of the fusion of hot butter, sugar, and flour, though. Nothing better.

  10. Coffee is my #1, too. And I'll have to try that dish soap. Holidays...of course, why didn't I think of that?


Thanks for the feedback!
