Thanks for sharing and I'm glad you enjoyed the podcast. It's a sense we definitely don't talk about too often, but once you do... Well, after I did the podcast, I thought of all kinds of things I could have said. Thank heavens, I didn't. <grin>
Skunks? Hmmm. You know, they tell me I've smelled them but I really didn't think they were all that horrible. Of course, my sinuses can not be trusted at times. This might be seen as a blessing. <grin>

Subject: [bct] Re: Lynnette's podcast on the sense of smell
I love soaps and cleaning solutions with a lemon scent Mary. I will have to
check out Tom's of Maine to see what their soap is like.
My favorite floral scents are peony and hyacinth. I don't like perfumes or
colognes much. I like hand lotions and soaps with a pleasant fresh scent.
We won't even get started with the food scents I like other than to say cinnamon in baked goods is probably my favorite. I love to smell fudge being made also.
Lynnette I also like the smell of rain falling on the earth. Buses are quite an olfactory experience, although those particular experiences are rarely pleasant memories I must say. Smile!
Here is a strange olfactory preference. My husband, who grew up in rural
Pennsylvania, sincerely likes the scent of a skunk. He thinks it smells
like a nice country smell. I had never smelled a skunk until we moved to
this condo. We have had problems in this development with skunks burrowing
in under people's front steps. I have to say that, from a distance anyway,
I have smelled many things that smelled much worse than the skunks I have
smelled around here.
As far as chitterlings are concerned, I have never smelled them, nor do I ever intend to! Just the thought of it makes me lose my appetite.
If you do get to take any botanical tours of central Park I hope you will share the experience with us in a podcast. I think that would be quite a lot of fun.
