I'd have to say Buffalo, NY. The General Mills factory is right outside downtown and I'm not kidding, you can small the cereal from miles away, especially during the morning. I hear it was named the best smelling city by some magazine but I don't know which one. I was in Buffalo at 9 AM today and I still have the smell in my nose. I'm loving it. Then you go explore other areas of Buffalo and I could smell the Buffalo wings and barbecue.

There's a Keebler bakery in Mariemont, Ohio, just outside Cincinnati. When the wind was right, I could smell chocolate chip cookies baking at my house 2 miles away. It got so that I could tell the difference between the smell of the Club crackers and the Town House crackers. And the Pecan Sandies ... to die for! LOL.

Different jobs were located across the street from the Husmann potato chip factory (used grease ... yum ... ), the old Hudepohl brewery (hops), and Klosterman bakery (is there a yummier scent than fresh baked bread?) Other scents in Cincinnati include the DeKuyper distillery and a food flavoring plant along I-75.

Orange blossoms in Florida, sage in the hills northwest of San Diego.
Any where near a bakery and fresh cut grass on a baseball field.
The smell and taste of salt water on my wifes skin at the beach.

Oh my gosh I would be in heaven!

I've always said that perfume companies have it all wrong. If they want to make a perfume for women to wear that would attract men, it should smell like chocolate chip cookies, BBQ, pizza, or fried chicken.

At any rate, non-industrial cities on the ocean have always smelled good to me, such as Saint Petersburg/Clearwater, West Palm Beach, and Norfolk. The fresh salt air is just nice. I can see why people in the Victorian age thought that ocean air would cure diseases.

And danco is right about orange blossoms. Back when there were actually orange groves around Orlando and Tampa, that whole area used to smell sooooo good when the orange trees were in bloom. The air smelled like orange blossom honey.

We got you beat. Not only did we have 2 General Mills in town (that made Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, etc), but we also had Pillsbury and Flavors of North America all within a 1-2 mile radius. Youd drive and get a whiff of chocolate, then a little later a whiff of marshmellows, then sprinkle in some grape, strawberry or coconut from another place. Mmmmmm. Best smells on earth.
