Robusta is certainly inferior to arabica in taste, but this thread is about aroma.

Well, as long as it smells good we'll overlook its moral failings. (Sorry.)

I can think of nothing else that smells better than sautéed onions and garlic!

Ham and onions simmering in butter.

It may not be cooking, but when I was making bread (baguettes and sourdough), the smell of yeast in the kitchen was heavenly.

What do you make that smells so good you can't wait to eat the dish? Even if, like onions and garlic, it's just a small part of the overall flavor?
If you can imagine it, I grew up with a mother who would not allow us to cook garlic and onions and if we tried she would berate us all night about the "bad smell"......But I adore the smell of freshly chopped garlic, sauteing in a pan with onions!

Next best thing for me is during Fall I make really yummy Chai by first simmering cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. Its divine. Fills the house with happiness

The Indian chicken curry I’m about to make for dinner. Garlic, ginger, onions, Indian spices. A side of zucinni and tomatoes, lots of fragrant spices in that dish too. It’s hard to beat Indian food for wonderful fragrance.
