Favourite Smells That Are Not Popular to the Majority

Other

Does anyone have any unusual favourite smells that everybody else are not so keen on

I love the smell of bleach, paint, tipex, whiteboard markers, newspapers/magazines, books, nail polish, mud, grass... Coriander 😍

Spices and chillis - it usually makes people choke, but I enjoy it. And I’ve never minded petrol

my nose is on the sensitive side, so I tend to enjoy fresh, light smells, nothing too strong or pungent

Dani1 I buy the scented ones too, even then I use as little as possible. I used to work as a housekeeper and I hated using bleach!

Inhaling bleach fumes can cause several health risks including damage or burning of the lining of the esophagus or lungs. That can lead to coughing, gurgling breathing sounds and trouble getting enough air. These symptoms can be mild, moderate or severe depending on the amount of exposure and your respiratory health.

Just a quick search revealed the above so I hope those of you who like the smell don't actively smell it! This is a bit reminiscent of the glue sniffing craze years back!

I love the smell of petrol, but since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve loved the smell of burning... specifically burning charcoal or wood, if someone is having a bonfire or bbq 😍

Iv always enjoyed the smell of a brand new freshly opened sponge. When I was pregnant I loved it so much I used to buy them just to sniff. 😐

Linseed Oil , probably from the days when I used to spend hours rubbing it into my cricket bat . Strangely the same oil was used in putty (remember that ? ) used to hold a new glass pane in place that I'd smashed with my cricket ball !

Still liked the smell of putty while it was still used (mastic isn't the same ) even though it reminded me of the sore bottom I got for my escapade !
