A couple more: A maple syrup sugar shack in operation, & a rickhouse full of bourbon aging in barrels (the Angel's Share).

Yep, carrying the wood in, stoking the fires under the evaporation pans... the smell of the sugar shack takes me back to when I was a boy and I helped my uncle make maple syrup (in Canada, not Sweden).

I reember the farm scents....

The sheds all had a distinct odor of their own, machine shed oily, greasy, fuel....the pungent smell of the wood shed, the unique undescrible smell of the pump house, and of course the barn

and the milk house, the wheezy old grainery.

Good , long gone memories.

Favorite Olfactory Memories........me I think. Used to have an Asian girlfriend and when she came over I always got a big hug at the door as she came in but never a kiss. Instead she would bury her nose on my chest and inhale deeply. Every time she would do this. Finally I asked her why, she responded in broken English......."smell good". Usually we were making whoopi within 15 minutes of her arrival. Funny thing that Irish Spring.

Going after the cows on a dark foggy August morning barefoot
and the warm feeling squishing between your toes. You
knew you were getting close to them.

As Poconojack says, too many to list, but here's one that sticks out: The smell of the interior of those old 1930s and 1940s cars, horsehair and velour. I was at an antique car show some years ago with my brother-in-law. We stuck our heads inside an old car and the smell caused us both to smile, remembering the cars adults drove when we were just kids.

Death is a smell you never forget...

Sometimes I get a flashback from being put under by ether .
It was not pleasant.

The combination of spices at the Dartmouth COOP in Lebanon, NH.

The smell of ozone from a close lightening strike.

Stoysich meat market in Omaha, NE.

The way that the air smells before a snow storm.

A warm Spring day when the snow is melting fast.

A wood fired sugar shack during a boil.

Wood smoke from a fireplace on a cold winter day.

Freshly cut alfalfa.

Diesel exhaust fumes when the vehicles are started after first-light stand-to.

Fresh cut hay, fresh cut wood, and leather that is new enough to retain some of the smell.
