The smell of my Dad's pipe tobacco. I have one of his pipes in my glass cabinet and if I sniff it hard I can still get a whiff of it and many happy memories of the old boy <3

The smell of lavender, from the lavender water my mother used to put on her forehead when she had a migraine. Sadly mom passed away in my home and for years afterwards I would get a whiff of the smell, am sure it was mom walking past me and saying hello. It gave me a comforting feeling <3
