    A 2 stroke motor running on a cold morning.

    A little 110 only makes it better.

    While I know that responses to certain odors are based on past experiences with the scent - smell is a powerful memory trigger, there are still many that are simply nice such as the scent of a man I love, a baby, the fresh air that comes through my window while I am sleeping, rain, the ocean, the woods, a rose, cut grass, clean sheets, Christmas, a natural wood box, a quality old book, coffee, fresh fruit, bread baking, beer, wine, chocolate cooking, tropical fruit, vanilla, and a campfire.

    The air is so clean here, but my son, who lives next door likes to dutch oven cook outside. It smells good.

    Ok - actually, wood/campfire smoke when you're up in the canyons during the summer, freshly bathed babies, wildflowers and blooming sage, Bamboo fragrance (Salt City candles), Sundance after it rains and expensive cologne on a fine-looking man
    Never regret anything that made you smile!

    I'll add a few more:

    Winter's first fire at home, the smell of my woman, fresh out of the shower. The smell of my truck (diesel) idling in the garage, the smell of a hot summer rain and the smell of a flash flood in August in Casto Canyon..

    There are quite a few smells I love, but what is interesting about discovering this thread today is that today is the day I realized that I much prefer the smell of my wife's peach scented deodorant. It smells awesome!

    Is any beside me old enough to remember when 2-strokes pre-mixed with bean oil made from caster beans? That was a unique smell you will never forget. Great protection, great smell, nasty carbon build up.

    Oh baby... Castrol R mixed with methanol in the air.

    I remember. Lately, though - I've ridden with a few 2 stroke bikes that had added flavorings to their fuel, such that the exhaust has a hint of blueberry and other aromas. Quite odd, but better than straight 2 stroke exhaust stink, I suppose.

    I like that carbon dioxidey smell from either bread rising or beer brewing. Kind of a yeasty wang.

    Bar tack for a chainsaw. Sweet.

    Freshly drilled limestone that has a bit of sea salt to it.

    The smell of my hands after crack climbing at City of Rocks or Castle Rocks in Idaho. Must be lichen or some such. Very distinctive, kinda earthy dead plant type smell.

    Bacon and eggs in a fryin' pan.

    Sweet clover.

    Back east, when all the leaves have fallen and begin to decompose in November, the air has a special smell to it that I think is just magical.

    I love the smell of fuse strikers on avalanche control mornings, new rope, dr bronner's peppermint soap, my tent, my chalk bag, the snake river in September, my 4runner, chainsaws, the smell of a wood shop, smoking meat, my girlfriend after she's all prettied up, my guitar case, clean laundry, ionized air after a lightning strike (yikes), single track paved with leaves, puppies, and the Windrivers.
