The best smell in the world is

We all have our favourite smells, like we all have our favourite colours. May-Button-Clairey

Just as there are different shades of colours there are different shades or more like scents when it comes to smells.
Some of the best smells in the world are hard to describe, but I’m going to give you 5 of my fav smells.

1. The Earth just after it has rained.
Do you know the smell that I’m talking about?
When it hasn’t rained for a really long time, the earth gives of this particular scent.  It’s like dirt, wet leaves, bark, moist compost, floral, honey & sunshine. There is something magical about this smell that I wish I could bottle up.


2. Baking Bread
There is something about the smell of freshly baked bread that is warming to the soul. Even though I don’t eat as much bread as I use to, I still love the smell of freshly baked bread.

3. Wood Fire
The first time I met Tom he smelt like a wood fire.  I later learned that he had a wood fire at home.  This would explain why he always smells of wood, fire & ash.  This smell is just so warm and comforting.  I love it.

4. Newborns
Any parent knows what I’m talking about.
kayla-newbornYep that’s my kid (Miss K) fresh out of the oven, just minutes old.

5. Roasts
This could be chicken, pork, beef, lamb, goat, I don’t care. If it’s roasting in the oven/grill/slow cooker, the smell is just devine and makes me want to drools.

What’s your fav smell?
Do you have a smell that triggers a memory?
If you had to choose your smell as a colour what would it be?

  2. I’ve never understood the whole fascination with the smell of a newborn. But then I guess I’m the sort of person who is terrified of any sort of blank slate – newborns included! Beautiful picture 🙂

  3. Love all these smells! I miss the newborn smell, not too many of my friends are having babies and I think I would creep people out if I went up and asked to smell their babies.
