When driving through the countryside and someone is burning wood in their garden I have to open the car windows wide and inhale. It is a smell that takes me back to my childhood and happy holidays spent with my great aunt in the Surrey countryside and home made mint sauce (great aunt again)

Bacon
Fresh Mown Grass (even though it will make me sneeze for ages!)
Freshly baked bread
Arpege by Lanvin - my favourite perfume.
