What Is Your Favourite Scent?

20100225 Freshly Baked Bread

When one's asked the question "what's your favourite scent?", it's natural to immediately think of a favourite perfume. Sure I do have a number of favourite fragrances (Burberry's Brit Sheer, Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Light Breeze to name a few), but when it comes to a favourite scent, I'd have to say, nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread.

I live in an apartment near a few bakeries, and each morning I'm greeted with the most delicious smell of freshly baked loaves on the balcony. It's absolutely divine. Catching a whiff of it works up an appetite for a hearty breakfast each morning, that's for sure.

That's the mornings. In the afternoons, there'll be smells of fried chicken wafting in the air from nearby takeaways (gives you a rough idea on where I live, eh?). Not as good as the smell of baked bread, but it does give me KFC cravings from time to time.

What's your favourite scent? Smell of rain splashing on the grass? Indian curries? :P

Smell of rain on grass. Or freshly-mown grass. Very earthy.

But, right now, I'll be thankful if I can smell any damn thing! :P

Besides the fresh smell of home cooking, I am loving the scent of my perfume that I got online. I can consider this as my "forever fragrance".
