What are your favorite scents? Not necessarily scents as in perfume, but just, things that smell good.

so, all the good smells are kind of obvious:

floral scents- magnolia, lilac, honeysuckle, geraniums, and roses being the main ones, but also boxwood and linden (which doesn’t actually smell like cum but the fact that people draw that comparison helps)

one or two days worth of clean sweat smell, with a moderate preference for that testosterone-y tang

specific static-y smells: the warm crackle of freshly dried clothes, and also cats

cheap old paperbacks, especially the kind that smell chocolatey

fresh weed, in all its varieties

the way very hot or cold outside air smells when you first step into it or open a window

most savory cooking smells

brownies baking





coffee beans, though not as much coffee (I used to hate that smell)

wet leather

dead leaves

sweet musk (I am that bitch who likes Opium-type perfumes best, and I like patchouli and Old-Spice knockoff deodorant)

these are all kind of obvious! but I also am very drawn to a whole bunch of less pleasant smells- I couldn’t say I like them, but there’s compelling- some of which are less obvious: gasoline, day-old underwear, two-plus-day-old sweat, burning french fry grease, dog’s ears, my dad’s cigarettes, menstrual blood, hospital odor

the thing directly between these two poles is civet, which smells lightly fecal or like genital sweat to me, and satisfies both my ‘mmm, good scent’ and ‘compulsively smell-able, not necessarily good’ drives
