I'm talking about the good ones, of course. My favorite is lavender. And for those of you who haven't ever had the pleasure of a lavender scented bath, you don't know what you're missing. Lavender truly relaxes you. Or at least it works with me-including lighting a lavender candle. I would be in heaven if I had that lavender field in the pic.

And there are others: Fresh cut grass, the 'baby' smell, and fresh cut roses from my garden. And there is one smell that reminds me of home (as in my Mom's up in CT.) (Not fresh baked cookies, lol. Although that ranks up there pretty high!) This is really strange, but it's the smell of a storm coming. It's when the air is charged and I get a whiff of an earthy mixture-dirt, grass, trees. It takes me back to CT. It's one of those triggers. You smell something, or taste a certain food, or see something in particular that reminds you of something or someone in your past. I love that earthy smell, almost like a cleansing of sorts.

Those are mine. What are yours??


  1. Freshly cut grass, for sure - the smell of wet pavement, too. I also love roses, even though I know it's cliched!

  2. Oh I love lavender too! I can never get enough of it, my favorite scent.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Talli-wet pavement on a hot day! I love that smell!
