-Perfumes, especially the old lady variety

-Tea tree/Eucalyptus

-Cinnamon

-Day old bacon

-Beer

I have a love hate relationship with sharpie markers, diesel gas, clorox wipes, and fixative sprays. 🙂

Apparently the nose can smell up to 1 trillion different scents. No wonder olfactory memories are so strong. I can vividly remember so many things after a waft of a smell from my past. Sometimes it’s almost visceral the memory is so strong.
