Cambium, I can smell that split cedar right through the photograph... Makes a fast and hot fire in the woodstove. Have to watch out for the "popping" when the resin deposits in the wood explode, can actually make the wood jump.

^^^ I would imagine this is what Heaven smells like!...

BTW, that's a cool Red Maple Leaf next to your location Almrausch.

I see Mint has been listed by several posters, this a favorite of mine as well.

Thanks again Zoisite for the info on Sage and Sweetgrass!

Being an avid outdoorsman, I love a lot of smells!

One of our favorite places to go closed down last year, unfortunately. Hodges Gardens. Thanks, Louisiana. Inside the gardens, the roses, paved walkways of pine, azaleas, numerous flowers. Gardenia Ohh!! Crushed eucalyptus leaves too. Walking the trails, the pine trees. Magnolia trees...

There's a tree that I call a black cherry. Has dark green top, lighter bottom leaves. The end tapers to a point. You crush these leaves and take a deep sniff. I chop the wood and make bonfires.

Fresh cut grass at the start of summer, honeysuckle bushes, and the smell of a wood fire in the winter on a cold and gray snowy day.

Wisteria and freshly cut alfalfa hay are intoxicating smells for me.

A sugar house when they're boiling maple sap.

Bay rum is my favorite aftershave scent. That's the West Indian bay tree with berries that look like allspice (a similar West Indian tree), not the ones used in cooking.
