    Petrol??? :9529::yuk::sign0137:Urgh that's horrible-I hate putting petrol in my car simply cos the whole area stinks of the stuff.

    I love the smell of cut grass-it, I guess, just reminds me of Summer and it just smells so gorgeous.

    I love the smell of flowers (mostly).

    I love the smell of Jungle by Kenzo and J'adore by Dior. They just smell so happy.

    Everyone thinks this is weird, but I absolutely adore the smell of chlorine. When I used to work at a pool, I would just stand there (obviously watching the swimmers) admiring the smell of the chlorine. Don't know why I like it, though.

    I think I have lots of other favourite smells, but can't think what they are at the moment.

    Clinique aromatics perfume - remind me of holidays.
    Fish shop - reminds me of how fat I was and will never get in that state again.
    Freshly mowed grass - summertime memories.
    Newly painted gloss - smell of a nice clean house.
    My Husband - reminds me how much I love him.
    Exhaust fumes from lorries - reminds me of the local fair coming to town when I was a child.

    Millions of others, but I wont bore you all lol.

    A fave word and smell - petrichor (the smell of first rain on dry ground)

    I associate this smell with home, back home in Zimbabwe it would rain for four months of the year (October - January) and then it would be dry...
