Petrol [dunno why]
Hot chocolate - as in, cooking the stuff, not the drink
Stargazer lilies
Lagavullen [malt whiskey]

Any others tickle your snout..........?

When I was very young, my Grandmother lived in a cottage beside a railway line. I can still smell the wild thyme that carpeted the area, it would release its perfume as I walked on it. The smell of the wild strawberries that grew in such profusion on the rocks by the side of the track (they've all gone now.) The smell of bitumen from the wooden sleepers in the summertime and the smell of the steam engines, incredible.

sea water (sometimes the thames smells like it too)

city gardens at night in summer (very distinct smell - but a mix of petrol fumes, flowers and night air)

The smell of the little booklet in a brand new CD, which possibly stems from;
The smell of a brand new exercise book (when I was at school, everyone sniffed a new book)

Not just that Goose, but PVA was awesome for painting on your hands/arms/face then peeling off, giving that Freddy Kruger look...
