What’s A Weird Smell You Like? – #TQOTD

Some of us love leaves burning, new car smell, or even fresh baby. But, who cares about those common smells? We want to know the weird ones.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s a WEIRD smell you like?

  • Gas and oil. My dad was a mechanic and I love the smell of oil, gas and lubricans that you find in a garage!
  • The smell of pine trees after rain, regular leaded gasoline (does that even exist anymore?) and freshly lit cigarette– which I stopped smoking almost 1 year now.
  • And a automotive shop…. all the tires oil and what not…… well not the stinky hard working smells just the cars…..
  • When I jog past silos filled with corn this time of year, it smells like bread to me…so good (not sure exactly what the smell is, though).
  • Sunburnt skin. I love the smell of someone’s skin after they’ve been in the sun all day or the tanner. Probably just from memories of being outside in the summer
  • The smell of copy paper after you’ve just made a fresh copy
  • Diesel and my dads cologne. He was a truck driver and as a kid everytime I smelled that in the house I knew that my dad was home.
  • Racing fuel. My dad used to race stock cars. Reminds me of my childhood.
  • The Sulfur when you blow out a match.
  • Dirt, gasoline, sweaty man and tire shop. My fiancé used to work in a tire shop. He’d come home smelling like new tires and I loved it!
  • Old cardboard. I collect vynil and everytime i go in a slightly musty basement it smells like a pile of “new to me ” vynil. It also smells like old books which i equally love
  • Ever since I quit smoking I love the smell of diesel fuel and the tar when they redo the roads.
