Smells that soothe and comfort you

Being a bit naughty as it’s a school night and it’s getting past my bedtime...

But do you have a “comfort” smell? An aroma that might remind you of a happy childhood, a really enjoyable holiday, a loving relationship or just a happy time in your life?

For me, some of the aromas include that of :-

Karvol (decongestant capsules)
Badedas
Freshly baked bread
Petrol
Fresh ground coffee (I hardly drink it, mind)
Peppermint
Sweet Pea
Roses
Freshly laundered sheets
Christmas tree (real)

I had to look it up to be sure I remembered it right!
