If you could capture any scent and put it in a scratch and smell T-shirt, what would it be?

For me, the top 5 are:

1. that baby smell when they are just new, kindof sweet and milky and something all their own as well
2. the shearing shed full of mohair (not wool)
3. smell of the air conditioner when you turn it on for the first time in summer
4. smell of rain
5. glen 20 sanitising spray

Gotta agree with Keren on the smell of rain.

I think that if puppy breath could be bottled that there would be no more clinical depression. I pick up puppies and smell their breath!

Fresh mowed grass
Grandma's sugar cookies
Fresh coffee brewing
the way all old churches smell
libraries
Freshly tilled soil

the smell of a womans hair..............clean a'course ;-) no strong perfumes preferbly none

If you ever watch movies, "Scent of a Woman" with Dustin Hoffman is great. Several years old, so you'll probably not find it quickly. Hoffman's character is blind, and he has some great observations about smell. It's kind of a chick flick, but there is a great scene where the blind man test drives a Ferrari. In NYC.

I'm with ya on the silage. When I was a kid I had to eat in the porch half the time cuz I used to go lay in the silage.
