I was bringing in some laundryu and it made me feel so happy. Bleach and sunshine. That what I remember most about my Dad. He always wore a bright white shirt to work even his t shirts were bright white and smelled of bleach and sunshine. What is your favorite smell from childhood?

Growing up, my family kept the Christmas decorations in a box in the basement. And so every year we'd open it up to pull out all the decorations. The smell of that box really takes me back. Many fond memories of Christmases past.

When I was in Junior High as a 7th grader looking up to my 8th grade older popular sister, her favorite perfume was Taboo (that she reeked of constantly as did her bedroom.).......a few years ago while shopping at CVS I was surprised to see that Taboo was still a perfume on the market, and when I smelled the sample I was IMMEDIATELY brought back to memories of the 7th grade and thinking of my older sister who always smelled liked Taboo back then.....thus buying that cheap perfume to give to her as a joke gift as a Christmas gift, that she loved because smelling that perfume for her brought memories back of her being in Junior High as well!! :)
Correction...Tabu not Taboo lol.

Smelling a perfume like Tabu that my sister reeked of all during Junior High or hearing an old song on Satellite radio that I hadn't heard in 30 plus years, immediately brings me right back to that time in my life :)
I heard the song Stone Cold by Rainbow on Satellite radio that I hadn't heard on FM radio in decades, and forgot that I use to LOVE that song when I was 19....so while listening to that song, I felt like 19 again for a few minutes while in my car listening to that song lol!!<div style="position:relative;height:0;padding-bottom:56.21%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/h...s?ecver=2" style="position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;left:0" width="641" height="360" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

I'm talented, but I have never learned to smoke pot with my other end.

My grandma's garden. I spent most of my childhood playtime there among her many flowers, fruit trees, and veggies. My special domain was up in the plum tree. I'll never forget the wonderful, ever-changing fragrances of that place.

I like that one. My nanna had kerosene heating oil for her kitchen stove. I always think of kerosene when I think of her house. Plus my dad told a lot of stories about it too. Like when he fell into fresh tarered road his dad wiped him off with kerosene and sent him off to schoo. Another dad had stepped on an old rusty nail his dad soaked a rag in kerosene and pulled it thru ouch!! How did people live thru these things? Today if a kid stepped on a puddle of kerosene they would arest the parents and send the kid to a decontamination facility LOL

On the plains, you can smell the rain coming. It's an earthy smell when you are down wind of it. When it first starts to rain and the dust is still in the air but getting wet, you can smell it.

OH I have never been out there. Around here you always smell a sulfer egg smell when there is a storm coming from the north. There was a stinkin papermill that has now gone but the smell remains.

Location does make a difference Lorraine. Where I grew up, is probably 150 miles from the closest manufacturing of anything. (unless you count cattle feedlots, and they manufacture their own smells)
