My Mom use to have to hide Cheracol Cough Syrup from me when I was little, I would drink the whole bottle if I could get my hands on it. I bought it for my own child a couple years ago and just had to have a taste. Disgusting! Guess it was like many of the old meds and they have added stuff to make it not so appealing to children anymore.
Pepto-Bismol is another favorite and from time to time I buy the pink mints that have the exact same taste.
Sugar Cookies (while baking)
Roast (while baking)
A PBJ wrapped in wax paper in a paper bag.
My wife’s hair
Babies after a bath
Freshly turned soil
Submarine engine rooms.
So many good smells…
onions sauteing, especially in bacon grease
approaching rain in the summer
freshly ground coffee
The sense of smell is the strongest emotion-producing sense for me. Some smells instantly take me to another time and place, usually to a pleasant or comforting memory.
Love freshly ground black pepper on fresh orange slices drizzled with good olive oil. Heard it is a common Italian appetizer. I love it.
Also love the smell of freshly ground black pepper.
Also when I was a little kid I liked the taste of burnt matches. Weird.
Enjoy the smell of ozone before a storm, new mown hay, baby puppies, and freshly shampooed hair.
===I will start with one that won’t surprise Northern Californians: While strong skunk smell is obviously displeasing, how about the weak, far-off scent? I do like it, as it’s just vaguely tart smelling.====
Is that because the Humbolt green bud smells so similar??? With that in mind, I liked that smell too. It seems that skunk mating season and the subsequent roadkills were in the spring and my nose would prick up.
When I was in Utah with my girlfriend, we went by this massive building. The aroma was not unlike that of a fast food joint. I commented on how good it smelled. She informed me that it was a dog food factory..!!!
blohatchii, at last! Someone else who thinks that roses stink! I thought I was the only one.
Nasty nasty nasty smell, but oh……..[8)]
I do know what you mean.
But better than skunk spray![:D][:D][:D]
I DID when I was around 6 years old. An entire bottle of little pink aspirin cubes. Had to have my stomach pumped.
OOPS!! I should have read on. Obviously wasn’t alone!!
When I was @5y.o. I ate a whole bottle of St. Joseph baby aspirin, because I liked the taste. I had to get my stomach pumped. ARGH!!!
Liver and onions cooking, but won’t eat them.
Menthol or "medicated" smell such as Vicks rub or Muscle rub.
A man after a hard days work. [:I] [:p] [}:)] [:D]
The smell of beer or italian dressing when either is used in cooking but don’t mind the end result as in taste.
Vitamins of any kind.
Roses, don’t know why just don’t like they’re smell.
Vanilla or Hazel nut flavored coffee. Instantly turns my stomach.
Apples, cantalope…like the fruit just not the smell. Hardly buy them unless I know that they will be eaten right away.
The smoke from a good cigarette.
A baby’s head.
Night Blooming Jasmine
The smell of new electronic items.
The smell from the motor of my Mom’s old 1948 Hamilton Beach Model G stand mixer. It reminds me of childhood. Now that the folks are gone I have that mixer set up in my den and will occasionally flip it on and bring it all back.
Backfire torch fuel, which is a mixture of gasoline and diesel.
The smell of a fire station’s apparatus bay, which is a blend of rubber, diesel, wax, smoke, damp, paint, and oil.
leaded racing gas in the container before its burned in the engine and and after right out of the headers, coffee beans, fresh cut grass, skunk weed, and what Halloween costumes smelled like years ago.

I had to stash all my Zippo’s. Way habit forming and no programs to deal with this bane on society. I noticed other "petro-chem snuffers" out there. Just a reminder that Zippo fumes are the gateway fumes[:0]! The food aroma that changes my thinking process is open flame roasting meat[:D]! Holy smoke(pun intended) am I ever not a vegetarian! My caveman DNA must be high on the totem pole ’cause it drive me to distraction if I’m not the one doing it. Ohhh and there is also nothing quite like the sound of the sizzling of fat and juices just as the render/tender process is starting. Telling you that your wait is almost over, so put your Zippo away and go get a plate[:I]!
