Miscellaneous Rumbles

Pick 2!

Who is this self-appointed tyrant that randomly picks 10 smells from which we are supposed to pick only 2?

Nossir, Homey don't play dat. (Homey was evidently a perfumer in a previous life).

Coffee, of course, Fresh baked bread, sure. But also new guitars, roses, lilacs, gardenias, tuberose, jasmine blooming, patchouli oil, sandalwood or Nag Champa incense, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, basmati rice cooking, popcorn, the air just after it rains, pizza, vinyl record albums just after the shrinkwrap is removed, my true love's hair, fresh-cut citrus, and others too numerous to mention.

So there. Thbbbbbffffttttttttt!!!!!!!

My mom loved the smell of gasoline. During the war, if her father smelled like gasoline on a Sunday it meant that he had used some rations to take the family for a Sunday drive in their automobile.
