What about a brand new box of crayons on the first day of school?

The special scent of a newborn...

I really love the scent of Polo, I think I can attribute several of my children to my hubby wearing that ;-) I love the smell of pot roast, one of those cooked all day with potatos and carrots, no onions. I'm sure there are other scents I love, but I can't think of them offhand, I love the smell of a breatfed baby, it's so sweet, whereas I can smell the sour of formula on other babies.

Sage. Fresh from a sage brush growing on the flats in Montana.

I love the smell of french vanilla incense, candles, and oils. I have to wear vanilla oil because my husband is allergic to perfume. The smell of chocolate cooking, but that's probobly just anticipation.

This is actually the husband of Glenna... To use Al's phrase, "not to be indelicate", I love the smell of my wife's breasts, actually right between them smells wonderful, she's breastfed for awhile and I think that has a lot to do with that scent.
