Mine would be rain and campfire smell
Escape
Rain and pine trees mixed.
Random ObsessionsAuthor
That's a good one. I forgot about pine trees.
Escape
On the front porch of a cabin in the pine trees while it's raining and the wind comes in off the ocean carrying that scent also
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Escape, I can't speak of ocean smell as I've never smelt it but I do miss walking out into a pine or spruce forest when it's raining. Or even right early in the morning when the dew is still about.
Escape
Oh boy, we have to get you to the ocean. How far are you from one?
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Escape, 13/14ish hours. If you want to look at the map on your phone Vermilion AB about where I'm at without giving away my home.
Escape
That's a long trip, might make a good vacation for you though.
Cat Woman
Probably something lemon-y.
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Lemon is one of my favorites to smell whenever I walk past a candle aisle.
Cat Woman
Random Obsessions, judging by what's available, I would say lavender is a common favorite. I don't get why. Do you like lavender?
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Cat Woman, so I'm not the only one confused by how much lavender scented EVERYTHING there is. To me it doesn't smell like a whole lot of anything, though it sorta reminds me of the smell most old ladies bathrooms have (no offense to any old ladies who may be reading this). Reminds me of how so many cleaners are scented as just "citrus". Which doesn't smell like any particular citrus fruit even but is absolutely everywhere as well.

Random Obsessions, yeah, I don't know what that is about. Why is lavender so popular? I think the citrus scent in cleaners comes from natural/home traditions of cleaning with actual citrus juices. They usually smell more lemon-y than orange or grapefruit or lime in my experience. But yeah, your initial question is a little difficult for me I guess because I'm used to scents like "Ocean breeze" or some shit like that, but I don't know what's actually in it that gives it that smell. Besides lemon, I think maybe I'd like the smell of freshly cleaned laundry. But wouldn't that just be a detergent candle?
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Cat Woman, I'm not sure I've ever smelt a grapefruit. Or seen one in person for that matter. Maybe the ocean breeze actually does smell like the ocean, I have no idea as I'm pretty damned far inland. The closes comparison I have to an ocean is lake smell and although it's a wonderful thing to smell in the morning and throughout the day it's very much the opposite of anything I would want to spray in my house. 😂 so yeah I'm not sure how they would do that one. As for laundry detergent candles I'm sure they make those since they make those little smelly tree things that people hang off their rear view mirrors in fresh laundry smell.
Cat Woman
Random Obsessions, Noooo. What? I love grapefruit! I love the taste AND the smell. I sometimes eat it for breakfast with a little honey. Anyway, maybe you should try it just to see if you like it. Chances are that if you're trying it for the first time as an adult, you probably won't like it. I get the impression that it's an acquired taste. I, myself, started having them when I was very young. Ocean Breeze does not at all smell like the ocean. Trust me lol. The actual ocean smells pretty much like salt. Like if you drive towards the ocean, you can smell it before you even get there. It smells like salt lol. And sand if you can imagine that sand has a scent. Sort of like soil has a scent.

Cat Woman, I can't recall even seeing a grapefruit at the grocery store. Next time I'm in town I'll have to see if they have them so I can try. Makes sense that the ocean would be salty. I do actually know what the ocean tastes like funnily enough. I went to Texas when I was in second grade and tasted a water bottle cap worth of seawater. I wasn't expecting it to be that salty. Actually now that I think about it I should have smelt plenty of ocean smells when I when to the Galapagos but I don't have any memory of ocean smells at all. Weird.
Cat Woman
Random Obsessions, it could be because you become desensitized to it. When you first approach the ocean you smell " water/moisture", "sand", "salt", but while you're there it's not as prevalent. What memories do you have of the Galapagos?
Random ObsessionsAuthor
Cat Woman, lots about the animals and such. That the the food which was amazing. They made sort of like pancakes out of plantains that were the best food I've ever had. Also a lot of soup which I found odd for how hot it was there.
Freistaat
I’m more of a vanilla and caramel man.
Cat Woman
You mean sweet? You're a sweet man. 😄😊
Freistaat
Cat Woman, ☺️
Snowglimmer
Bergamotte/something citrus
JHel🌐🌶🍏
For me some freshly cut beech wood, please.
JHel🌐🌶🍏
As always with a hint of light chocolate and caramel if it’s possible 😆
Rufus Kohn
Beeswax candles have an ambivalent smell to me. I love it and hate it at the same time. Another smel I like is flint stone when being smashed together and air filled Ozon after a thunderstorm

Freshly cut grass after a hot summer storm.

Does anyone know the movie "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" ... Something like that would be fine for me.
Escape
I read the book, does that count?
heisenberg
Escape, absolutely.
Escape
Good, I think I'll check around to see if the movie is available
heisenberg
I hope you're not too disappointed. Mostly movies can't reach the story of books by far.
Escape
Found it on Amazon Prime.
Rufus Kohn
There are so many smells portrayed in Perfume. The book is better.
Escape
Rufus Kohn, books generally are better than the movies. But this is a period piece so if nothing else I can enjoy the settings and costumes
Rufus Kohn
Escape, indeed there is a lot put into the movie.
heisenberg
Rufus Kohn, well... for sure I meant the special smell of women that you personally find they smell beautiful so to say... Can't describe that very well but I'm sure you know what I mean.
Rufus Kohn
heisenberg, yes the memory of the scent of my first girlfriends hair stings strong feelings dtill

Escape, watch out for the apricot girl (karolin Herfurth)
Escape
I had to look it up, says Plum girl
JHel🌐🌶🍏
Escape, karolin used to be our baby sitter in Berlin. At the age of 14 she was cool enough to ignore 95% of what I said- and being charming about it all the time. 😆

A very smart young woman

Escape, Invincible for men if you ask me.

Propane or natural gas scented. Light it in public areas.
