1. New books
It’s basically like freshly printed paper, but multiplied by 200 (or more!).
Whether it’s their soft heads or Frito-y paws, puppies are what happiness smells like.
Smells so good you’ll want to eat it. (Note to the curious: It’s super salty.)
5. New car
Mmm, factory-fresh chemicals. Unless you have a Jetta, which smells like crayons.
In the words of Louis CK: “It’s a sticky hot bun, and it comes with a little tub of jizzy hot syrup.”
7. Freshly cut grass
This guy knows. Bonus if it’s mixed with the tingly scent of diesel in your nostrils.
Speaking of fumes, can we get “gas station” as a room spray?
9. Rubber cement
Not to be huffed, obviously, but merely residually enjoyed when creating Tyra Mail.
10. Kettle corn
A sweeter take on what is usually just a vehicle for salt and butter.
Only on the way down, not the way up.
12. Thanksgiving dinner
Would you like a side of family dysfunction with your turkey, potatoes, gravy, and cranberries?
The smell seeps into your clothes and hair so much that you can relive the toasty memories from the night before.
Best smelled next to the aforementioned crackling campfire.
Ever walked into a cowboy-boots store? It’s where dreams come true.
For maximum enjoyment, light outside of a stinky bathroom.
Few things give off as satisfying an aroma as sterility.
23. Olive Garden breadsticks
No one cares about you, salad. It’s the buttery yeast we’re after.
Eau de adorable with a hint of Johnson & Johnson, anyone?
26. Mom’s homemade cooking
Sorry, all significant others: Mom’s cooking will always trump your culinary attempts.
28. Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland
The only time the odor of swashbucklers will make you nostalgic.
They’re half the size of regular horses, so that means they smell twice as good, right?
31. Tennis-ball can
Sports and compressed air are what dreams are made of, y’all.
32. Christmas presents
It’ll be tough to bottle the scent of wrapping paper and the promise that is Christmas morning, but it can be done.
