If you enter Charlotte from the North side you get the sweet smell of a baby powder smell coming from a plant that makes parts of the diaper genie.

If you are coming in from the west side you smell a bread company making loathes of bread.

Default There are good and BAD smells in Hershey PA

People say Hershey, PA smells like chocolate and sometimes it does. Hershey often smells really bad because of an old wastewater treatment plant. The good news is that it mysteriously only smells at night after the park is closed and only when there are no events.

I stayed next to a patisserie in Paris that smelled delicious! It blocked out the diesel fumes...

Honolulu, Hawaii generally smells really nice because of all the flowers in the parks, gardens, and planters around the city. I smells like being florist store.

Default Bread.

Akron, OH has a Wonderbread factory right next to the University of Akron campus.
There is also a Schwebel's factory in Cuyahoga Falls not to far from that.
I went to the UofA and now drive past Schwebel's on the the way to work, so I have gotten the best of them both.
The smell of baking bread is SO yummy!
