352 Notes

my favorite scent is lavender

Thank you for hosting this giveaway

----- Louis 05.12.11 21:48

My grandmother had her own oasis in the desert — I grew up in a family of 3rd gen japanese farmers. To this day I can recall the scent of dust on warm pavement as the rain first falls, and the scent of juniper and lilies wafting through.

----- Jess 05.12.11 21:26

Puppies! I love the new puppy smell that is in combination with their clean soft fur. I could smell puppies all day (besides when they roll in their poop). The smell of puppies makes me so happy, not as happy as the sight of them though.

----- Nicole 05.12.11 20:29

Love the scent of roasted marshmallows!

----- Selina Wong 05.12.11 20:15

Smoke. Also, lavender.

----- Roller 05.12.11 18:53

Currently I would have to say my favorite scent is of my freshly cut Fraser Fir xmas tree.

----- jamie 05.12.11 18:39

I guess I’m pretty old school. I like my air filled with frankincense.
I don’t really know why. I guess something about the smell just resin-ates with me.

----- Emma 05.12.11 18:19

The aroma that fills the air from grinding coffee beans.

----- Jacob Jones 05.12.11 17:09


----- Jane 05.12.11 17:02

I love the smell of gardenia - it reminds me of my mom!

----- Marlo 05.12.11 16:45

I love the smell of gardenia - it reminds me of my mom!

----- Marlo 05.12.11 16:45

Its a weird one, Licorice.

The first minute when it starts rainning :D

----- Maria 05.12.11 10:11

I like the smell of my lady’s hair.

----- Ted 05.12.11 09:48

A combination of citrus, leather, cigars, and scotch!

----- Mikell Johnson 05.12.11 09:48

Toms of Maine woodspice deoderant

----- Josh 05.12.11 08:39

Freshly baked pastries!!!

----- Alexandra 05.12.11 07:29

Freshly brewed coffee. No question.

----- Kimberly M 05.12.11 06:46

The smell I like the most is apple cinnamon. It reminds me of the country air but yet with a warm urban feel to it.

----- Damion 05.12.11 06:31

The smell of my baby’s hair.

----- Bill 05.12.11 05:38

my favourite scent is vanilla…

----- Dagne 05.12.11 05:09

the best smell ever is the mix of tobacco smoke (when smokes somebody, not me) and coming into leaf trees, mixed on fresh wet spring air!

----- Tanya 05.12.11 03:42

smell of freshly washed and dried bed sheet

----- K. 05.12.11 03:12

My favorite scent is my mom’s kitchen. I know that someone has posted this before me, but that is and always will be my favorite scent. From the harsh bite of ammonia when she cleans the floor, to the sweet smell of cookies baking, I cannot get enough of that lingering scent of the warmth and good times and food that I had there.

----- David Rieman 04.12.11 19:48

I love freshly-cut spring green grass.

----- Wehaf 04.12.11 19:47

If there was a scent combining cinnamon, geranium, magnolia, and pine together I’d probably douse everything with it. But mainly clean scent with a touch of spice. I love magnolias because they remind me of the large one in my grandmother’s back yard in Jackson, TN, spice for my love of all things spicy, and pine because I’m a tree-climber at heart and love the smell of fresh pine needles this time of year.

----- Charlotte 04.12.11 19:38

Boiled Cabbage. Reminds me of my Ukranian Grandmother, Babu.

----- Colin Schless 04.12.11 18:31

----- Yolanda Hernandez 04.12.11 12:19

clothing hung to dry out in the COLD.

----- jon 04.12.11 12:12

The scent of walking through a house being newly constructed. Fresh ( or now not so fresh) wood mixed with paint mixed with the open air mixed with newly covered stucco walls. Its an odd smell, but its the scent of a house in the making before a family will make it a home , and I think there’s something delicious about that.

----- Brandon 04.12.11 12:08

That really old familiar smell that takes you right back to…but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

----- Delia 04.12.11 06:29

The smell of wandering through the local bazaar. Whatever hodgepodge of things I happen to pass (homemade butter/cheese, meat sitting on a cold counter, still warm pastries with god knows inside, clothes that are older than I am). My nose is never bored :)

----- Matthew 04.12.11 05:26

My favorite scent is of blueberries.

----- Jon 04.12.11 04:50

Fresh mint leaves

----- Tommy Lei 03.12.11 12:20

Santa’s White Christmas coffee from Barnie’s. I don’t even drink coffee, but the smell reminds me of good memories. :)

----- Lara 03.12.11 11:54

cinnamon - reminds me of good food and comfort

----- kelly 02.12.11 20:27

African rosewood

----- Will 02.12.11 19:53

----- Jay B. 02.12.11 18:09

the hint of Narcissus in the Jasmin Noir reminds me of spring at my grandmothers house, she always had flowers put out

----- Mehrdad 02.12.11 18:06

I love the smell of the hospital…it is so soothing to me!!!

----- Kim Spencer 02.12.11 16:31

Scents are lovely on their own, but there’s truly nothing as epic as when multiple, amazing scents combine for a total nostril catharsis.

Imagine for a moment the decadent smell of fresh baked chocolate chip and caramel swirl cookies, while at the same time, a rainstorm has just completed its pouring outside, igniting a rainbow in the sky. Sure rainbows can’t smell, but the freshness after a storm is an ephemeral thing. Couple that with the gentle kiss of your just-showered supermodel girlfriend, smelling like every delicious fruit on the planet, and you’ve got yourself a perfect scent collage.

----- Jon Gibson 02.12.11 16:18

Hibiscus, or grassy fields at dawn. A horse’s coat as you’re brushing it. Coffee.

----- SARAH 02.12.11 11:54

Bacon and coffee.

My favorite scent is the smell of a new opened macbook pro.

----- Joseph Sarti 02.12.11 11:03

Have you ever open up a bag of potting soil & smelled its scent as the wind pulls it upward and onto the breeze? Earth. The smell of dirt is often overlooked or critisized as not your typical favored scent. How often do you find a bottle of Eau de Dirt? Regardless, there is something so basic and primal about the smell of wet dirt after a rain. Or the smell of it baking under a hot summer sun. It just makes you appreciate the simple things in life.

I just don’t get bored of vanilla.

----- Andy 02.12.11 06:56

----- rich 02.12.11 06:41

My scent of my woman’s skin

----- J_Walrus 02.12.11 06:36

My grandparents live in WI and their fresh cut grass smell paired with a crisp mid-western breeze and sweet, glacial earth makes me smile :)

----- Justin 02.12.11 05:44

----- Jason 01.12.11 21:17

I don’t know if this is actually a scent or more like..a sensation, but the “smell” of the first day of winter…or when you know that the season has changed from fall to winter…that is the best.

Coffee and books, without a doubt. I know that’s the most cliched answer of them all, but there’s a reason for that.

----- JCGrant 01.12.11 09:01

My favorite scent is pumpkin pie with the nutmeg and vanilla hints in the background.

----- Anders 01.12.11 08:52

The smell of autumn’s first rain hitting freshly turned and seeded paddocks.

The best scent in the world in Dr. Johnson walking by work area. He wears the most amazing musky cologne.

----- Christi 30.11.11 20:29

I love breathing in the scent of my eighteen month-old daughter- freshly bathed and ready for bed. The fragrance of her Burt’s Bees Buttermilk Bath mingles with the faintest tinge of berry-flavored toothpaste and the resulting scent is intoxicating…especially when paired with the weight and warmth of her little body.

----- Lynn 30.11.11 20:27

My favorite scent… if it was food related I would say either roast rib eye or fresh baked cookies or bread… but if it was fragrance/floral… I would definitely say lavender.

Baking bread and cookies!

----- Thu 30.11.11 19:11

my favorite scent is vetiver. i cannot explain why this is, but my senses respond in an almost therapeutic way. baxter is such a unique company. as a female with a lot of masculine traits, i have followed their business since i first came across them. i want to buy SO many products, the shaving instruments in particular to display in my bathroom because of the craftsmanship and and novelty of an era that has gone by. thanks for listening and the opportunity. best.

I love the smell of vanilla.

----- Heidi 30.11.11 18:36

freshly baked bread.. or the inside of a new york bagel

----- Stephanie 30.11.11 16:34

My favorite scent would have to be that clean laundry smell that gets vented to outside of your home. I live in New Jersey and although it’s known as the Garden State, it smells like the garbage state. Consequently, I love when I walk past (-asssed) a house doing laundry and can smell fabric softener in the air. I take a minute to stop and breathe it in before the STANK NJ air takes over.

----- Darrell 30.11.11 16:26

Hmmm, favorite scent might just be the mélange of celery, onion, salt/pepper, and butter mixture that is the basis for all great dishes. You know something good is coming when you smell that in the air.

I love the smell of freesia. That scent mixed with the smell of jasmon tea take me back to younger days.

I always loved amber myself!

----- Devin 30.11.11 15:30

Popcorn mixed with peanuts plus hot dogs, a hint of cotton candy, and fresh cut grass; in other words, the scent of the ballpark. This triggers warm memories of trips to the ballpark with my Dad when I was little.

----- Katherine 30.11.11 15:28

Basil…it’s incredible how deep its scent can pervade your body.

----- FEDERICA 30.11.11 15:21

My favorite scent is ‘huele de noche’. You can only smell it when the flowers open at night and it is the most delicious smell ever. It reminds me of warm nights at my grandparent’s house.

----- Elena 30.11.11 15:14

cigarettes and old spice :)

----- Tiffany 30.11.11 15:11

----- Jody 30.11.11 14:35

I went to an antique store and they had an old tin of Players tobacco. I opened it and the smell almost brought me to tears. It transported me back to when I was six, at my grandparents farm. Not realizing that while I was sitting on my grandpa’s knee that the smell of cigarettes and Old Spice was part of what was so comforting. So I guess Players tobacco because it made me think of that 30 years later, it also made me miss him so much it hurt.

----- Joyce 30.11.11 14:34

I love the scent of winning great candles!

----- rey 30.11.11 14:29

boyfriend’s t shirt

----- Natasha 30.11.11 13:31

My boyfriend’s armpits. I’m serious, I’m not a weirdo or anything, I swear! If it makes it okay, they’re the only armpits that have ever smelled good to me. It must be our natural chemistry. :)

----- Lorien 30.11.11 13:30

Oooh my favorite scent is Mountain Clouds!

----- Russ! 30.11.11 13:30

The wooden floors of Versailles

----- Marc 30.11.11 13:25

Guava. It reminds me of the pastries my grandfather used to bake in his bakery, La Perezsosa. This scent means even more now having moved to the UK, where i can’t buy guava, in any form. It’s especially vivid, as he passed away earlier this year.

Sweet and so much stronger then the actual taste of the fruit.

That’s my favorite scent.

only thing that comes close after that is the sea. (can you tell i am homesick for the caribean)

----- martins 30.11.11 13:04

fresh-cut grass and bonfire-smoke! :)

----- Liisa 30.11.11 12:59

Smokey things come to mind. BBQ, campfires, grills all over the neighborhood in the summer, cigars. Of course these all smell awful stuck in your clothes/hair the next morning.

I am loving all the warm woodsy fragrances- cedar, sandalwood, turned earth, smoked tea leaves…

----- Eva Xia 30.11.11 12:53

Freshly mowed grass!

----- Savio 30.11.11 12:24

----- Allie 30.11.11 12:22

The smell just after a match has been struck and lit…

oil paints mixed with turps. Heaven by the canvas

----- Jamieson 30.11.11 11:35

----- Robert W. 30.11.11 11:22

Fresh-cracked black pepper. Especially in cologne. But I also love both gardenia and magnolia. Odd for a guy to say that maybe, but the one reminds me of my mom (who I love), and the other reminds me of this huge magnolia tree in UMD-College Park that would fill the campus with the greatest fresh scent.

----- Hector 30.11.11 11:21

The scent of the life :)

As a teenager my mom had given me a patuli scented candle….before everyone gags….this wasnt a heavy scented smell of hippies…it was nice and calming.

A newly opened book. While there are a lot of scents that are more emotional to me, the act of opening a book for the first time to me is an act of awareness, and with scents in our day and time, this sadly has become rare.

----- Flo 30.11.11 08:44

I’m a sucker for any smell that is powerfully linked to memories. The wonderfully synthetic smell of Lemon Pledge always makes me think of Grandma’s house. And the orange smell of Testors model glue zaps me right back to the old garage with my dad.

Nothing smells more refreshing than a concourse after being stuck next to cologne-bathed man for a 6-hour flight.

Rosemary. No, lavender. No, rosemary. Eucalyptus is nice. Jasmine…? Rosemary, definitely rosemary. Or orange blossoms.

----- Kathy R 30.11.11 08:23
