I like :
Sweet Peas
Basil
Lemon Basil
Strawberries
But the most outstanding and memorable smell for me is tomatoes in the greenhouse on a warm day!!! This is a wonderfull aroma that transports me back 60 years to my grandad's greenhouse.

There's a herb that I really love the smell of but I've forgotten what it is Big Grin it is fern like, about 2ft tall, perennial and reliably comes back every year, can be used sparingly in a dessert? It's seed is about 1.5 cm and it long and thin Big Grin anyone up for guessing?


I love the smell of sweetpeas but it gives me a migraine in the house!

I love the smell of honeysuckle on my yard, the roses in my garden when in bloom.

Smells for indoors are all food related Big Grin rosemary, basil, I love bay, oranges, fresh tomatoes - even the foliage,

I like most all of what everyone else likes - how boring is that? Particularly like the smell of ripe strawberries, broad bean flowers are nice too.
Can't stand the smell of elder
I'm not aging, I just need repotting
