Subject: BS: What smell jogs your memory?
From: Liz the Squeak
Date: 18 Aug 05 - 04:58 PM

A discussion in the Chatroom threw up this little gem.... the smell of warm cow, warm milk and red carbolic soap... my most favourite smell in the world.

It takes me right back to when I was between 6 and 9, and spent half my time on my grandfather's dairy farm. It reminds me of long summer days doing nothing but playing in the garden or on the beach, of a fireplace that held an Aga, an armchair and still had room for a child and a box of kittens.... of spanking cold frosty Christmas mornings when what seemed like half the village would come to breakfast on a single table that would sit 20 people... of uneven flags covered in rush matting that lead down the dark hallway into the blaze of light that was my grandmothers' room with the window that came halfway down the pavement so you sat in the seat at ankle height to people walking past.....

What smell jogs your memory and how?

Each Boxing day, all the men..that's around 10-12 altogether, would go shooting on my Uncles Farm...The ladies would prepare a dinner fit for a King (as if we had not had enough on Christmas Day).
Walking back into the house after a mornings shooting and smelling the goose, duck, pheasant and pigeon cooking intermingled with sage and onion stuffing,various hot sauces etc etc which made up such fare....filled me with anticipation and my mouth literally watered. Yummmmmmmmmmmmm.
I love that smell when a woman comes freshly from the shower or bath and has anointed herself with all the products which are made to make her feel better about herself....certainly gets my attention.
I love the smell of woodsmoke and food cooking at my way-out-in-the-wilds campsite.
I feel sorry for all those people who are afflicted with a lack of the sense of smell!!
Best wishes, Mike.

The smell of boxwood takes me right back to childhood and the home of my beloved grandparents. I think it was the smell of boxwoods that had me saying "We'll take it" within 5 minutes of seeing the house we now own.

The smell of parafin takes me back to Christmas. Mom would always make candles for our teachers, using cardboard quart milk boxes for molds. She would whip some of the wax to make it white and frothy and, "ice" the candles with it, and then press on holly leaves and berries while it was still soft.

I do not like cologne or perfume on men or women....eyes water and I sneeze....but in my senior year of high school I briefly went out with a boy who always wore 'Brute' cologne or aftershave. He was the first male I was powerfully sexually attracted to. We didn't date long, but both of us ended up at Marshall University. Our sophmore year, he was killed with the rest of our football team in a terrible plane crash. Occasionally, I will get a whiff of that cologne walking along a busy sidewalk, and am immediately swept back in time to that excitement and sadness.

When my sister died of breast cancer, someone sent a blooming basket of forced hyacinths to the house. To this day I can not abide their aroma.

"The light fishy smell of a lake." Donuel, just last night when I went to an outdoors salmon bake where a friend was singing for hundreds of tourists I suddenly realized that the pond that I was passing smelled like something out of my childhood, a smell I had thought of as being that of frogs. It must have been algae or something like that because I've never seen a frog in Juneau.

My brother and a friend once came upon a farm that had fresh cut hay and drove in to ask the farmer if they could help him make hay just for the "smell of it".

Tthat large lily that has pink freckles- don't remember its name but it smells like a campfire, and campfires trigger a dozen memories. Especially of when I was a kid and the family went to the river for an outing. Dad would build a fire where we'd roast hotdogs and toast marshmallows.

Lilacs - after 55 years - still bring back my first boyfriend. And I never was particularly fond of him. Memories are weird.

The most overwhelming and ambrosial smell I've come across since I left home was that of a horse stall. My father was a horse trainer so we always had lots of horses on the place, and I started riding so early I don't even remember the first time. A few years ago at the lone "farm" we have in Juneau I stepped into a horse stall and wanted to stay forever. It was wonderful.

The smell of flowering elder mingling with the smell of timber framing recently painted with tar paint, both enhanced by the sun, will take me straight back to childhood holidays spent at my uncle's old farm - which also used to be my father's boyhood home.

I used to rush there for a one or two weeks' visit every year as soon as school was out for the summer, and as this coincided with the flowering time for the elder, in my memories the elder is *always* flowering there, just like the timber framing is always recently painted and the sun always shining ;-)

i lvoe the smell of pine tar..
in Sweden they made soap out
of it, and use it to weather
proof wooden rooves and posts.

They say they will have to stop
using it because the fumes are
dangerous. I imagine they could
be if you inhaled them day after
day, but for some reason I breathe
in extra deeply when i smell that
fragrance. I wish there was a way
to transmit fragrance3 over the
internet so i could share it with
all of you!! scratch and sniff?
jfrag? I usedc to use it for my
horses' hooves, dressing them to
keep them moist, prevent cracks &
prevents infection. Grandpa's soap
made from pine tar also claims to
have insecticidal qualities against
lice and other skin and hair bugs.

I think our sense of smell may be the most evocative of them all in terms of emotional memories.

Ebbie--I almost mentioned horse barn myself--hanging out in the hayloft on rainy fall afternoons--spying a nest of tiny hairless mouse babies in the corner of a stall. The soft feel of a horse's muzzle blowing against your cheek.

I love the smell that rises on a blistering hot summer afternoon right after a sudden rain shower.

The scent of a mimosa tree in bloom brings me up short every time. There are precious few of them around any more, for some reason, and their blooming period is only a couple of weeks in the summer, but every now and then I catch a whiff of one and my kidhood comes back in a rush. We had a huge mimosa tree in our front yard when I was young, and I loved it dearly.

Horse-smells never fail to evoke. Likewise Old Spice,redwood forests, and my grandfather's tobacco, or my father's, or the smell of ozone on a rising tide, forest rains, lawns after thundershowers, certain kinds of musk, the smell of a wet dog, the smell of Ouzo at sunset, Gruyere on fresh French bread, gunsmoke, turpentine, and the strange whiff of an anchor chain breaking the surface bringing bottom mud with it. New welds in steel. Certain kinds of perfume just transport me. Good brass. Good Scotch, inimitable, and likewise real French chicory-coffee and Hennessy brandy. Certain exhalations from energized damsels' lungs, very well-made Bolognese sauce, and a peculiar odor of steam, oil and steel in a smoothly running steam engine. I also love the smell of good hemp rope when it is new, wood shavings, especially from cedar, wet clay and dark forests in moonlight. The smell of compressed air at 50 feet below the surface. And freshly varnished spars.

These are a few of my favorite things.

Above that the smell of wood being cut or sawn. My dad was often away for long periods when I was a lad (navy too), so when he came home, which was infrequent, he would get on with all the jobs around the house, he especially loved doing woodwork and carpentry. So the smell of fresh cut wood was always a reassuring sign he was at home.

The smell of brickyard chimnneys on the Fenland wind. I grew up in Peterborough (UK)on the edge of the Fens. The smell of the (then) numerous brickyards was always associated with winter because the smoke from the tall chimneys was blown across the city in the prevailing wind. When I was a small child I thought that the brickyard smell was actually the smell of winter.
To me it is an old, hard, grey 'flinty' smell, redolent of ancient things. The fact is that it is, literally, the smell of ancient things burning. The clay around Peterborough was laid down, on the seabed, during Jurassic times. The residual organic matter in the clay is burned off to form the bricks.

Chocolate smells remind me of the apartment I lived in Milwaukee while in college. It was near the Ambrose chocolate factory, and why I'm quite sure I'm addicted to the stuff today.

And on occasion when I get a whiff of some maryjane in a park...lots of memories (and lost brain cells I imagine) from my Hippy Days (Years, really).

In the 1950s my father was caretaker of a TA (Territorial Army)centre where we lived on site.

There was a large area of rough grass which he cut with a sythe so he could use the hay as bedding for his chickens and rabbits but sometimes my brother and I would gather the grass into mounds to play in. If it had not had time to dry the grass would begin to "turn". The delicious new-mown-hay smell soon became one of musty fermentation. That smell reminds me of being 7 years old.

Dad, before he got his electric clippers, would spend several hours cutting the tall privet hedges with hand shears. It is a sound rarely heard nowadays, that steady clip clip of a hedge being cut by hand. But I still enjoy the smell of flowering privet on a sunny evening. It takes me straight back to the treasured time of my early childhood before he had his stroke and was unable to do manual work again.
