  • grandma used to do all her laundry in Tide and it makes me think of her.

    Those little white flowers that look like little cups...they are weeds, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they smell. I used to pick them in our front yard and smell the crap out of them. lol

    And leather because I was raised around horses, so it reminds me of a tack room.

  • Worn in leather and diesel (actually jet fuel). That was teh smell that meant that Daddy was home. He was military and would be gone weeks at a time but I could wake up and smell that all the way upstairs when he would take his boots off and I knew he was home. Also the smell of hot tar/ new pavement, it smells like airshows to me. Hte heat rolling off the tarmac. But I wasn't a daddy's girl or anything Lol.
