Smells you love

There are a few things that I smell that just make me feel happy. You know that feeling when you smell something and you get a really strong memory or feeling?

1: Pomegranate anything (including actual pomegranates!)
2. Gluhwein
3. Garlic and onions frying (because that smell is there when I'm cooking and I'm always happy when I'm cooking)

Anybody else have any?

Love the smell of petrol and a newly mowed meadow when cutting silage

Looks like many others do too

Christmas tree smell is the best, went and got a real one this year just for the smell
Coffee
Leather wallet and old money smell, not euros though. I just remember the old cash smelling nice.

i've been meaning to try find a study on this exact thing to read. It's really interesting. Your mind actually stores exact emotions and feelings you experienced during very happy or very sad times. And it uses things like smells and tastes as a type of filing system. As soon as yoi get that smell you got at that particular moment in your life you actually emotionally and sensually time travel to that exact moment in time and can be in the exact state of mind you were in when the event occured. It's amazing really. Can't think of smells of hand' but I do get it a lot. And thats the most amazing thing. It's stuff you actually completely forget about and a smll you probably can't explain, but once you get it it's a very vivid memory and feeling.
