A city that quickly comes to mind is Hershey, PA!

Haha...I've never liked the smell of factories. Even chocolate factories probably leave behind somewhat of a nasty odor.


Beach cities always smell amazing...I love the salty (but fresh) scent of the ocean.

I also love the smells of small town Georgia. Freshly baked pies on the windowsill..sweet tea...yum!

Towns in the North Georgia mountains. Such an intense pine smell. Parts of Portland when the roses are blooming. Parts of Florida with a lot of citrus trees. I love the smell of lime on a muggy day.

I loved the smell of the steel mills on the East Side of Chicago. They smelled like money.

For a short time, when I was young, I lived in the small village of Navarre, Ohio. The Nickles Bakery is headquartered there. The village is small enough that the whole place smells like fresh bread or pastries on certain days of the week. Relatives tell me that you don't notice it after awhile, though.

I was in Basel, Switzerland one year when the linden trees were blooming. Sweet...

I guess any town would smell good if it had enough linden trees.

My answer USED TO BE Corolla, NC. Never had I been to a place where the salt from the ocean felt/smelled so heavy in the air. Also, driving along Highway 12 winding around dunes covered with bayberry bushes, a very pleasant smell. Today, however, the whole place is covered with beach McMansions on stilts. It probably smells more like fertilizer than anything else.

Seattle. It may be cold and grey and damp, but the luxurious greenery and flowers are heavenly. The air is perfumed with lilac and spruce and fir. I have never been any place like it.

For a city, I would never have believed it could be so fragrant. Overwhelming.
