Can You Smell That?

  1. YES! So many of yours I agree with and your post was a great inspiration and a wonderful comfort.
    Here are five smells that I thought of (with your help)…
    Ocean (I have always loved the water and the horizon and the smell of something open and big.)
    Campfire (It makes me thinking of camping with my family and my little brother and I toasting marshmallows.)
    Onions and garlic sautéing on the stove (makes me think of homemade meals and cooking with loved ones)
    Vanilla (I mean — who doesn’t love this smell!! Seriously, could be one of the best smells ever? During the pandemic, I have started putting vanilla in my cocktails.)
    Lavender (Yes, it makes me think of my grandmother. She grew lavender and I remember she would put the jar of sun tea to sit next to the lavender bush.)
    You are the best. Thank you. AND I love the art with this post. Just let me know how much it costs if you put it up for sale. -your bfar

  2. Very much enjoyed reading your post. I am an olfactory attuned type. I tend to unconsciously bring things to my nose to smell them. My memories of smells are so acute, I can remember and mentally experience smells of places long ago. I am still able to recall the smell when entering my grandmothers house. I’ve heard a few times that one thing people tend to lose with the death of a person is their smell. I also have a unique preference of smell including skunk and tires. Even as a boy I remember going to a pile of tires in my father’s garage (he was a mechanic at the time) and loving the smell of tires. I know…strange. Another perspective of smell which fascinated me is the varying dominance of smell for different breeds of dogs. For example, I have raised many a dachshund, which are within the hound family, who have wandered off in a zig-zag pattern, lead by their nose.
