The smell of a freshly fired paper shotgun hull. Hoppes #9. Honeysuckle aroma wafting through my bedroom window. The smell of fresh perked coffee.

Lots of good ones here, some I connect with.

How about the smell of dressing out my first Javalina and wondering WTF did I ever consider shooting one.

Pinaud Clubman aftershave.

My dad used it and so did the barber that we got out hair cut at in the 60's.

One whiff and I get a mental collage of pictures of my dad, the barbershop and my first peek at a playboy magazine.

My grandfather’s doberman used to release some hellish SBDs while Barnaby Jones was on. Had to be the Fritos the old man was hand feeding him
He more than earned those postal rubber band shots to the ball sack while sleeping (the dog)

Good memory smells:

Dad's pipe tobacco and smoke

Freshly fired paper shotgun shells

Burger grease mixed with Lea & Perrins sizzling on the lava rocks in Dad's old gas grill

I grew up around two very different industries and the smells around them remain pleasant to me. The first was the timber/lumber industry and the smell of freshly cut lumber or logs makes me want to stop and just breathe it in. The smell of red fir is my favorite. The other industry was the petrochemical industry and I kind of like the smell of sulfur! It is one of those nostalgic odors for me.
I really like the smell of elk. Gunpowder; single base or double base.
From my motocross days, the smell of two-stroke exhaust; especially if burning Bardahl VBA. Hoppes #9 and G96 gun treatment.
Sadly, as I age, my sense of smell is diminishing and I feel I am missing out on a lot. GD

A new leather baseball glove, a pine tar rag and the smell of fresh mowed ball field.

Our woods have a smell that starts around mid October that I love.

I love the smell of my Mom’s pot roast cooking.

My grandparents’ house. He smoked a pipe. She always had something in the oven and a fresh pot of coffee brewing.

As much as I love the smell of fresh coffee percolating, I love the smell of grinding the beans better !
