Signature smells

Last week at dinner we were talking about our favourite scents, the ones that would be our unique love potion smells (a la Harry Potter, where Hermione's was freshly mown grass and new parchment). They're pretty accurate snapshots of each of us:

  • Sam: Rain and bacon
  • Maddy: new books, old books, and root beer
  • Lauren: [edited to add hers, sent via email]: incense (because India) and fresh ocean breeze
  • Annie: wood fire in a fireplace + that fresh smell next to a stream in a canyon (so basically standing on the deck at Wildwood) and lemon
  • Greg: freshly mown hay on a Virginia summer evening, barbecue, and vanilla

What about you? What would be your love potion smell?
