    Those are almost identical to what I would list. A couple of others I would possibly add:

    Pine trees in the fall when it is first turning cool--similar to freshly cut grass, but more 'evergreenish' if that makes sense.
    In some cases--chicken noodle soup. (I remember the first time I was in Chinatown in SF. Everywhere down there smelled like chicken noodle soup in the air)
    The smell of steak/meat grilling in the neighborhood.
    Lastly....It is impossible to adequately convey sufficiently enough that Bacon is at the top of the list. Period. Therefore--BACON once again.

    Orange Blossoms in spring. I still go miles out of the way to drive through a grove area in bloom.

    Yeah I grew up around a juice plant in Felda, Fl., I just can't explain how bad that smelled when that place was running full tilt during orange season. Love the smell of orange blossoms, but can't take the juice making process.:eek:

    grew up, after a fashion, in clermont, home of the citrus tower, pre disney in the 50s-60s, a tad north of where you were, the whole place was groves, it was an excused absence from school if you worked the night before firing smudge pots when a freeze threatened - its not like that any more, some call it progress

    Yep I know all about the smudge pots, they still use them some down here, if it calls for a freeze, I've seen some of my buddies even use their air boats to blow the heat through the groves, and I know where your talking about, the truck drivers used to call it donald duck, because of the big picture of donald on the tower.

    1. The smell of a fresh-scrubbed woman fresh from the shower.

    What? Nobody likes their own farts? They are best shared under the covers waiting for that smell of a fresh-scrubbed woman fresh from the shower. This only works if you've been married for a long time though. :eek:

    I agree with most of what has already been listed. :)

    Some of my fondest memories have been driving down I4 past the old Merita Bread Factory when they were baking. Mmmmm, so wonderful!

    Living in Clermont, I still get a whiff of the orange blossom if the winds are just right. Love it when that happens.

    On a different note, I would love the smell of an upset in The Swamp tomorrow!!!! :cool:

    One for my old favorites: there is a Nabisco plant in the east side of Richmond and when you drive by and they are cooking, it smells like fresh baked cookies. Instant hunger. The coffee roasting smell around the Maxwell plant in Jax is a favorite also.

    the note about the Maxwell House plant in Jax reminded me of the times I would go shopping with my favorite Grandmother at the A & P, every time we were there they were grinding coffee and the smell was delightful, I still wonder if they had someone who ground coffee every little while to keep that great aroma in the air & selling more 8 O'Clock coffee

    That might be the only place that smells nice in Richmond :)

    My favs, no order:

    -Wood burning on a cold night
    -My mom's pasta sauce being cooked
    -Local Italian bakery near my house growing up
    -Ocean

    Now for two weird ones:
    -Dead skunk, at least at a distance
    -Fresh cow manure from the three dairy farms surrounding my neighborhood
    *both of which remind me of home (when my fam moved to the country).

    Worst:
    Banana skins being dried/heated in an oven too long. Literally made me sick to my stomach.

    Definitely bacon!

    How about a good bourbon like Maker's Mark or a good Merlot (fill in your favorite)?
