Freshly made coffee,
Bread baking,
A nice fry up,
The smell of a log fire on a cold winter morning,

But the best smell for me is the air outside of a plane above 13,000 feet.

GeordieinNorfolk, you've brought back a pleasant memory for me - that's 'Roma' perfume by Laura Biagiotti <3. I had some a long while back, and just luuurved it to bits <3. Is it still around, just off to google :-)


EDIT: Yes it is, favourable prices on Amazon.

Karen - it's (or was) my favourite perfume. I first tried it on a Majorcan holiday about 15 years ago, and would go to the same perfumerie every evening to spray myself liberally before a night out. The irate assistant eventually twigged what I was up to, so I thought I'd better buy some! :-D
