    Thanks! I smell cinnamon every morning for breakfast too, I never tire of it! That's why we love OPIUM too!
    Honeysuckle first thing this morning coming through my window!

    It's noon here, but what I smelled so far can't be topped, imo: new-mown grass; and laundry that was drying outdoors - it has a unique, wonderful smell, different to the one dried inside. :)

    Funny, I was reading a thriller where the terrorists killed some guys with poison gas and one guy knew what it was because it smelled like freshly cut grass.

    Thankfully terrorists are not interested in a quiet area like the one I'm living in, so the smell of freshly cut grass stays what it is - the smell of new-mown grass, no Phosgene. :)

    Also J. A. , because you live in a magical place like Shangria La, they won't be able to find you! :);). :);) only people pure of heart can live there. ( sorry about the spelling of Shangra La, I will have to look it up ) I too, LOVE the smell of clothese that have been dried in the outdoors! To me they smell like sunshine! :);) :);)

    Shangri La is the right expression, afaik.

    That's right, they smell like sunshine. :)

    New recliner, leather, not only is it really comfortable but smells neat. I've never had leather furniture (or car seats), I may sleep in this tonight to test it:)

    The garbage can. I was making a fruit salad for this party and threw out all the peels and seeds. Made so much fruit salad i had to change the bag and thats when i took a whiff of the smell of my garbage can. The fragrant smell of the cherry seeds mixed with orange peels topped with the aroma of the apple cores.

    Rain.
    After a dry week with 30° C and more, this is the best scent ever. :)
