So been hot for several days. Oh! I see you have hiked up the price for bottled water? Go fuck yourself!!

Do you know that smell you get when it's boiling hot day and water it's the ground allowing an aroma to go up your nice. Fucking beautiful.

So as simple as that. Time to have fun. What are your favourite and worse smells.

As a child growing up in Montserrat, I would be blessed with the smell of freshly baked bread every morning when I woke up. It was a small island so that scent went far. Sadly it got overshadowed by rotten eggs. Fucking Soufriere Hills.

Express and share.

Rotten Meat being cooked apparently, cause that's what I smelled last night and I literally threw up. I think I am somewhat sensitive to smell (ironically based on certain things) cause I was first to notice it and most severely affected, same with cooked mushrooms which choke me out from their smell.

I'm not a big fan of peanut butter, but I for some reason love the smell of it.

In before 'that' smell. You know the one. The 'female' one.

Best smell is probably well cooked beef (not cooked well, of course).

Worst is probably the smell of recently and violently, dead. I can't explain it,but you can just instinctually tell,and it triggers the fight or flight instinct. The serious kind of fight or flight,that fucks you up for hours after, or even days

Diarrhea caused by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. The worst part is that it's HIGHLY contagious, and can sometimes tear through entire hospital wings. Up there are stage IV pressure ulcers, gi bleeds and pretty much any disease that results in heavy decomposition.

best...uh, I really like the smell of clean laundry. Especially when it's dried on a line in a place with really nice smelling air.

Best: Garlic cheese butter sauce cook in some kind of seafood dish

Worst: I used to work in a wastewater treatment facility. There was a literal river of shit. I seemed to have lost quite a bit of my sense of smell from that job as it requires a very powerful smell for me to detect it.

Now that i think on it, ive had quite a colorful employment history....

What female smell? What exactly are you talking about exactly?
No.

It's usually bowel contents, liver enzymes and bile enzymes starting to break down organs, and so on, mixed with blood. It's a pretty distinct smell, as you say, and one that comes back to you for a long time and at unexpected times.
I'll take your word for it.

I still remember the first time I smelled it, with crystal clarity, which is fairly rare for me. I was working on a computer in a morgue in Iraq, and all of a sudden my heart tripled its speed, every hair on me stood up, and my brain went into overdrive. All that happened before I even consciously 'smelled' anything. Then someone came in and asked me to help hold some doors open. They brought in a body bag that looked and sounded like it was filled with gelatin, and they told me the guy had been blown clear in half by an IED. Probably the worst experience of my entire life, and I got mortared more then once, so that's something.

Start with worst, end with best, right?

Worst: Stale saliva. Errgggghh, worse than shit 'n piss 'n vinegar. Working in a hospital and a care home, it crops up a lot and never ceases to hurl my stomach into shutdown mode.

Best: Hmm, i pretty much agree with freshly baked bread, it smells so comforting. Can they make pillows out of the stuff? I also like freshly cut grass as it reminds me of happy summers. Also i love going into those novelty soap shops as the smells...awwmaagawwd the smells are like being sensually stroked all over the brain by the loveliest love that ever existed. Yeah, that makes enough sense for now.

One of the better smells for me is fresh baked bread. The bakery is right around the corner, they start around 4am, so it's a nice wake-up call when the wind is in the right direction.

Worst smell, people who are getting a chemo treatment for cancer. It's one of the reasons I really try to avoid hospitals.
I'm fairly sensitive to smells and that just triggers all kinds of "wrong" buttons for me.

Best - I like foodie smells but my favorite is probably the smell of steaming shrimp once the old bay has been added on. I really freaking love that smell...

Worst - Candles that try to emulate tree or flower-like smells...specifically Pine since that isn't so much a smell as it is a sharp, needle-like assault on my nasal cavity.

Best one has to be food of some sort, fresh out the oven.
Worst one is dead people. Can't think of anything worse at the moment than a corpse.
