I'm with you on petrol. I also like freshly cut grass, almonds and model glue.

I also agree with cigarettes and beer (although I like to drink it). Weed smells disgusting, and I do not like tar!

There is a paper mill near where I live and it smells like rank pulp. Baby oil and celery also bother me.

I love the smell of good marijuana, books, coffee and chocolate.

I really enjoy smelling things, it's so closely linked to your sense of taste as well.

The things I dislike most are probably most bodily discharges and odors (urine, feces, vomit, arm pit odor, etc), and a lot of synthetic material stuff.

I also enjoy The Scent of a Woman

Cigarette smell is horrible. Cigars smell good though. And alcohol smells beautiful.

That strange cig smoke what I keep smelling. I dont no what it is but think it is weed but not too sure as never smoked it my self but it doesnt smell like normal cig smell and it reeks. Feel like chucking up when I smell it and its getting more and more common. Every time I smell and with some one I always say that's that funny cig smell.

Forum censoring is stupid you cant spell cig the English slang way which I call cigs F A G S as its common in our country. Nothing to do with why the forum is censoring it. lol.

I'm surprised by how many people like the smell of gasoline. Gasoline and the strong smell of it always unnerves me. I hate it when I accidentally get gasoline on my skin and the smell sticks even after thoroughly washing the area.

I do love the smell of weed, though. If I smell it somewhere in public I'm inclined to learn where it's coming from and if those people are friendly enough to share (most stoners are sharers so that's not a hard thing to ask for).

I love the smell of Christmas trees and fresh brewed coffee. I absolutely love the scent of basil. I used to be a chef so every time I handled basil I'd be in a happy place because of its scent.

I think the scent I really can't stand most of all is vomit. If I am near the stench of vomit I might end up vomiting myself because it is so vile. I remember long ago when I was younger and working in retail, someone threw up inside the store and I was asked to clean it up. After my initial attempt and beginning to become sick from it, I ended up refusing to do the job and made someone else do it because it was making me sick.

@livingdeadman: When I was a kid I used to like the smell of my grandad’s ashtray after it had been emptied. Don’t smoke myself either... ;)
