This was one of the assignments I was given when I was at the U3A.
Which aromas triggers your most treasured memories?
Freshly cut timber always reminds me of my father for he was a cabinet maker.
The heady scent of honeysuckle takes me back to the country lanes of Hampshire.
Leather, of leather bound books and the Classics of Dickens and Tolstoy.
Johnson's Baby Powder, tender memories of motherhood and my newborn son.

Oh I love the smell of freshly baked bread, it reminds me of when I was little walking to the shops with my mum as we lived close to a Warburtons bread factory and had to pass it.
Such a yummy scent.
I also love the smell of neutradol for some unknown reason
Freshly cut grass after a rainy night....

There's a kind of sour-fishy smell that you can catch in a wind off a lake, especially in the morning.
Always reminds me of fishing with my dad as a kid--waking up at like 5am, getting worms for bait, the waves lapping against the bow of the aluminum row boat, and not a worry in the world except keeping warm and checking my bobber to see if I got a bite.

The smell of a slow-cooking roux, the start of a gumbo......or, the scent of salt water, reminding me of the Gulf. (of Mexico)
A blend of smells......sitting in a seafood restaurant on the beach side of Grand Isle, Louisiana, the feelt and scent of the salt spray in the evening wind blowing in through the screened windows......smell of fried flounder, trout, redfish, shrimp, and freshly boiled crabs. Taste of thick, steamy French fried potatoes dipped in cool tartare sauce. God, I wish I could go back.......

The smell of my mums dressing down gives me this comfy positive feeling. I notice that linen that has been in our cupboards for a long time has a similar aroma and the same effect. I feel sleepy and relaxed in a good way.
Ive noticed that the scents in from different people and their homes produce different reactions from me. One of my friends has an aroma which makes me feel slightly edgy due to the tension in their household, while the aroma of my best friend is familiar and warm. I had a discussion with her about this and she had noticed the same sort of thing with different people herself. Their scents are not bad or good (usually ) just associated with different things.
