Have you ever walked into a place and smell a smell that just warms you in the pit of your belly? Smell a smell that takes you back to a childhood memory? Food of course always gets me going. Coworkers think it a funny trait of mine. But I just love smells (I know a bit strange, but that is how I roll) and the way you can alter one's mood with them. I truly believe your mood can be controlled by a smell.
I like, no Love trying to make my home have a particular smells for particular events. Like when I am cleaning I burn "clean" smelling candles such as Clean Linen, Ocean scents, and such. When I want that cuddle up homey smell I burn cinnamon, sandalwood and such. And when I want comfort I burn pumpkin, spices, and other "baking" candles.
Combining smells is an art though, there have been times that I am mixing fabulous individual smells and when mixed.....EWWWW bad. And it takes forever for me to get them out of the house.
My top ten favorite smells:
1. The air just before it rains.
2. Fresh cut grass.
3. Budweiser's paws (yes I said my dog)
4. The scent of a baby.
5. The salt of the Ocean.
6. Fresh baked Cinnamon rolls.
7. My husbands pillow.
8. Fresh cut wood.
9. Camp Fire, and....
10. My husband after doing a construction job (I know odd, but I always run up to him after he gets home to inhale his scent. It is a smell that makes me feel secure. I know I am weird. And yes MD too thinks I am strange.)
What are your favorite smells?
