The smell of flooding streets and the muck burning off the exhaust as I was leaving a BBQ place in town after the water level rose way too fast.

Or.... It may have been the pulled pork, brisket, chopped turkey, home made sausage and beans from the restaurant, that was a wonderful cacophony of smells.

I hope you made it home fine!

And now you've made me terribly hungry! Can I get an order to go?? :D

Riding a motorcycle does add an element, doesn't it? This morning I spent an hour in rush hour traffic smelling exhaust, but there was a bit there where a bakery was making cinnamon buns. :) And folks, if I can smell your cologne/perfume on the street passing at 40mph, you're wearing a bit much! I'm amazed how often than happens - I didn't even know they still made Brut.

Lol! Cinnamon buns I get, but perfume? On a bike? They must be wearing quite a lot, that and maybe you have a keen sense of smell.....;)

And gosh, Brut, yes, they do still make it! I was really surprised to smell it recently also. A comeback perhaps.??....

The smell of my new born niece, there just isn't anything to compare! :)

Oh nice is that! Babies smell...so "baby fresh!"

@Squib...great idea for a startup thread!

Currently what I smell is cinnamon on my oatmeal. It's a scent that I never tire of! :)

Ah. Neighbors having the grass mowed across the street. I adore the fresh smell of grass cuttings. A sure sign that spring is here - with summer on the way! :D

A friend of mine works in retail and she's always talking about how tons of people - regardless of age - simply don't know how much perfume or cologne to wear, or even their proper clothing sizes (she's actually argued with women abut their own bra sizes). Riding thru an area with a nightclub or downtown during rush hour, I always pass several people that have over done it.

And I'm flabbergasted to learn they still sell/make Brut. I haven't worn that since high school (late 70s). It's like finding out they still make Hai Karate. :)

That is so true about clothing sizes....I think a lot of women are in denial about their size and bras in particular......but most women don't like to be fitted for one so they just keep buying the wrong size. Kinda silly really!

I have a keen sense of smell myself and just loath being near women who have drenched themselves in cheap perfume. It just goes straight to my head!

Late 70's is when Brut became huge here.....everyone was wearing it.....but you know I kinda liked it back then and my big brother wore it too! Just loved those little bottles!

I had to look up Hai Karate....I don't think we had that brand here in OZ. ;)

Hai Karate's gimmick was that you had to fight the women off. The ads were hilariously cheesy, with a geeky guy in a leisure suit pursued by tons of models. If you've seen The Incredibles, Frozone is putting some on just before his wife's dinner party, when he sees a helicopter crashing outside.
