Back in the 1960's I lived 5 miles east of Akron, Ohio, then the tire capital of the world. Ah....the smell of burning rubber.....

For a few years in the 1980's I lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; walked past the Quaker Oats plant on my way to work each day. Smelled better than burning rubber, but not that much better.

Not so much any more, but at a flat track event, the smell of castor oil - "smells like a race"

Orange blossoms and apple trees are my favorite smells on a motorcycle.  I ride occasionally along the Venosta Valley from Meran to the north end of Stelvio Pass in Italy.  The traffic is awful on that particular road, but the smell of apples is often marvelous.

The smell of burned castor oil and AVGAS are both wonderful too, for a motorhead.

I go 20 miles west to Bisbee Arizona for some interesting smells...There are a couple of coffee roasters in downtown old bisbee that put out a wonderful smell. Reminds me of when my Cuban grandmother used to roast coffee beans on the stove in a big cast iron pan, always turning the beans with an old wooden spoon, to roast them evenly.
  The smell of creosote bushes in the sonoran desert after a summer rain is like nothing else.
Bisbee is also known as one of the last "Hippie Havens" in the USA. You can sit on a bench in the park in historic downtown  Bisbee, and smell the dank , and somewhat  pleasant odor of cannabis being smoked, on a regular basis.
Brings me back to the 70's!   :thumb:

I know those smells...
Right now it smells deliciously of cookies my daughter is making!

Mmmmmmmm-BOY!!! Crawfish-Boil!!!  I'm coming down!! :thumb: :cool: :smiley:

Waldheim is UP for me!! Love a good crawfish boil!  Other smells around New Orleans are roasting coffee, gardenias, and sweet olive bushes in bloom.  The smell of the bagasse is truly unique.  I am surprised how often I smell pot smoke... perhaps I shouldn't be surprised...

That is an odoriferous area for sure. But it won't keep me from going back

Over the hill from the World HQ of Country Home Elevator is a cattle feed place. Smells like mole-asses.

There must be a joke here that I don't get.  Assume it has to do with Bimbo? 


BTW-  You know that Bimbo has bought out most of the US bakeries?  Apparently only Mexican companies are only willing to take a risk on something as mundane as food.  I remember when some Wall Street guys nearly put Hostess under when you couldn't buy cupcakes or Twinkies for months.
