What are your favorite odd smells?
 
My odd favorite smells:

Gasoline (ummmm, gasoline)
Febreeze
Pinesol
Ditto Copies (remember the duplicates/copies in blue ink from the 60's and 70's? loved that smell)
A cigarette when it's first lit - peuuuw after that...
Wood of any kind

Often when I smell this I am reminded of my grandfather, who must have chewed tobacco. I like the smell too.

Along with magic markers and ditto sheets.

I also like the smell of late summer, when things kind of smell a bit decayed. Kind of like what the deep south smells like in many places.

DITTO! Boy, you brought back some great memories.

I went to a car show the other night and a guy came in with a 68 camaro worked to the ba**'s with a crazy cam. I just closed my eyes and stood in back of the car and it was the 60's again.
