I'm just curious again, about people here. lol So, what are your favorite aromas? Was going to go with smells, but aroma sounds much more pleasant. :)

My mom just bought this new candle, and the smell is driving me crazy! It smells so good! So it's my new favorite aroma. If you don't have one, go out and buy a Sandalwood candle. It's heavan! :)

So my favorite aromas ;) are:
Sandalwood
Vanilla
Christmas Dinner being made (has the best smell at my house! now that's something that should be made into a candle!)
Pine/Spruce smells so good
Fresh Cedar!!! So good!! :)

And we have this other candle, that smells fantastic! It's like a combination of apples, cinnamon, and honey. I could eat the candle it smells so good! :D

I seriously could spend an entire day in a candle shop, just going around and smelling every single candle. And probably just buying them too. :)

Anyone else like the aroma (LMAO!) of a candle so much, they could just eat it? :p ;)

the smell of hot apples and cinamon,

that and the smell of a civil war re-enactment. Seriously! When you walk into a field and you get that scent of fired gunpowder hit you it's just fantastic, I really feel like I'm back there, well, I would if it weren't for the squashed Cornetto under my right foot, and that guardsman on his mobile phone.....

That reminds me!!

Cappuccino!!! Any kind! And mint frappes!! The best smells in the world! I could never leave a coffee if I worked there. lol I almost got a job at one about a month ago. I would have lived there because it smelled so good!!! :)

Yes! coffee beans definately, or just the smell of coffee brewing in general.

Plus, the smell of my husband cooking garlic and chicken! umm ummm ummm :D


I also like anything fruity, nothing flowery

and my ulitmate aroma, which I actually use to make potpourri wax with is Ralph Lauren's perfume "Ralph". I get the sample vials, dump it in the wax, melt it together then crack it into pieces and burn it in a burner. smells heavenly!

you know she probably wouldn't smell like that at the beginning of the game... ;)
or in the shower scene, -which I know Godfather pays particular attention to.......
...and you know, most mud doesn't really smell....

Godfather
14th Oct 2002, 14:06
So what if she smells? I like things kept naturally. That way I also don't have to mind about my own smell. :D

actually Godfather, I was just down at the pack monday fair and thought of you when I saw a giant Lara Croft beach towel -at least if you had one of those you could be assured of having Lara drapped over you whenever you wanted.. ;)

The smell of my brother's truck when he's just waxed it
New leather shoes - like the one's I got today! Smells good! :p

THE True Lara

New shoes are great full stop ;)
and I'm not saying that because I'm a girl, I've only a few pairs, honest, but the Clarks adverts are so right! -actually, everyone I know, tends to stand around staring at their feet for a while saying "oooowwwwwuuuuuuuh new shoes!" when they've just bought a new pair. There's just something about them.

Well, I am assured of having Lara drapped around me ... but it ain't a beach towel that's doing the job ... it's my swimming trunks. (sorry, you asked for it) :D
