    I'm doing a project for school and need to collect information on peoples favorite scents.

    So what are your favorite smells?
    It would also help if you tell me if you're male or female.

    Thanks again for the help guys.


    Just to get things started, I love fruit smells. Strawberry, Orange and Grape are my top three.

    The smell of fresh cut grass.
    The way Chanel #5 smells on my wife.
    That ozone smell that you get just before a really bad storm.
    fresh hay.
    oddly enough I also love the smell of gasoline.
    The musty smell of an old book.
    pussy.

    Ditto on hating coconut. The smell the taste, the texture, it's disgusting in every way.

    I am a dude and the smell of vanilla will absolutely bring me to my knees. No other scent is more tied to my memory. Just a whiff of it on a girl I'll let her bend me to her witchy will. The smell of vanilla sugar means cleanup on aisle 4. Girls that smell like baked goods without cake frosting around their lips is the best of both worlds without the gunt.

    There was this redhead I knew who had the most amazing natural smell. Like skin and orange blossoms and fresh laundry and honey. Her hair was a bouquet of fruit and soap; Herbal Essence was one of the ones she used. Cheap, but effective. Then she squirted on this Claiborne perfume (I forget the name), and, well, I'm just done. I will never be happy again until I find someone that smells like that again.

    Other less creepy smells: Garlic toasting in olive oil, strawberry, citrus, grilled beef, grilled lobster, stinky feet cheese like taleggio, basil (huge one, fresh basil in the garden is mind blowing), oregano, melting chocolate. I can't explain how a cold day smells, but that first cold day of fall smells clean and vibrant down here.

    Alcohols. Good bourbon has a perfume like smoke and caramel and fresh grain. Hendricks gin: roses and cucumbers. India pale ale beers. Dogfish head 120, Avery Maharaja smell like fresh cut grass, grapefruit, pine. Belgians like Abbaye de Rocs or St Bernardus have this aroma of bubblegum, candy, apricots and banana, sour bread.

    One thing I loathe is jasmine. Fucking kills me. Straight to my sinuses like a dagger.

    L'Occitaine, that fancy version of that god awful store Lush used to make a vanilla perfume that was easily the best thing I ever had smelled. My girlfriend at the time used to wear it, and I think it was half of the reason I was into her. The smell of it pretty much gave me a hard on.

    Then half-way through our relationship they changed the scent slightly, but enough that I could tell and was pissed.

    I spent 4x than the old scent was going for when it was in stores on eBay because people were going nuts for it and gave it to her as a Christmas gift.

    You know, so I didn't stop loving her.

    I have seen her twice since the break up, and the first time she wasn't wearing anything and I didn't feel any of the old feelings. The second time she somehow still had some left and wore it, and to be honest, as soon as I smelled it I was tempted.

    Oh, and Hoppes solvent. I have always wanted to wear it as cologne.

    Everyday smells: JP-5. The jet fuel used by all the Military except the Air Force.
    The smell of someone barbecue-ing or grilling in general.

    On women: anything that smells like citrus or vanilla. I'd be more or less a slave if they mixed the two in the perfect way.

    I'll add my .02 to the coconut smell: the fruit itself tastes and looks like shit, so why make a something smell like it too? Coconut fails at life.

    Definitely agree with the gunpowder smell

    Burning leaves or campfires

    And I usually have an apple cinnamon candle burning all year round





    ... is fire a smell? I like it.

    Spearmint - it reminds me of her.
    Lilacs - Summers coming.
    The Lake - Reminds me of when I was young.

    There are always other I enjoy like fresh cut grass, exhaust but these I have times where I don't like the smell. Like when I have to cut the grass and when i'm around the exhaust too much.

    Again, fresh-cut grass. Even better is a fresh-cut hay field.

    Gardenias, magnolias, cedar.

    Leather jackets, pipe tobacco, new cars.

    Diesel exhaust - seriously, ever since I was a kid, I have loved the smell of diesel exhaust. Obviously, I'm male.

    -The smell of a meadow after a spring rain.
    -The fresh scent of a new baby.
    -The smell of the sea off the Carolina shore as a storm rolls in....

    Wait, I'm just standing in the greeting card section at the grocery store randomly reading shit as I walk down the aisle. Gasoline is actually the sweet, sweet smell for me.

    I love the smell of cigarette smoke and keg beer. Reminds me of baseball games and my dad
    Ditto anything on a grill.
    Bacon.
    Love the smell of a freshly "Armor-all"-ed vehicle.
    Ditto pussy. I think a better question would be "Who doesn't love the smell of pussy?".

    I've always loved the smell of gasoline. Also, I love the smell of charcoal when it's still in the bag.
