Michael Scott: I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don't have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it's good for me, it's the perfect way to start the day.
As it turns out, it is also the perfect way to end the day...
Ask A Vapid Blonde, I like bacon. The two of us discuss it quite often on Twitter. I don't eat it that often (because let's face it, bacon is not the best food to eat on a regular basis...) but I enjoy it a lot when I do.
So after a long day at the office, where things have been very busy, I stepped outside and wouldn't you know it, the top deck of the parking structure smelled like heavenly bacon. It was awesome. For once it wasn't raining, the humidity had died down, and the air smelled of smoked pork products.
Of course this got me thinking, what other scents could the, um, scent gods(?) pump out into the atmosphere that would make me, and others, happy?
Fresh Cut Grass
I love the smell of fresh cut grass so much I still own a bottle of the perfume that Gap produced in the 90's aptly named, Grass. No one should be surprised if I end up marrying a gardner some day just because of that smell.
Deep Woods Off
Maybe it's having grown up in a woodsy area. Or all the summers I spent at camp. But hot damn I love the smell of Deep Woods Off.
I am a girl, which means I have more flowery scented body washes in my shower than necessary. And I use them all, but when nothing compares the the beige bar of Safeguard soap I always keep in there too. Chalk it up to the fact that it's the soap my dad used.
Black Sharpie Markers
I know a lot of people huff markers to get high, but I will sometimes take a light inhale because I love the smell. Sure, it's probably killing off brain cells, but monkeys like vitamin pants...
Moonlit Walk Candles by Glade
They smell like a really good guys cologne.
I don't really like to eat it, but I love the smell of it. Favorite Popcorn Story: When I turned 16 my parents took me out to dinner. When we came home, we walked in the house and I said "it smells like burnt popcorn in here". My dad tried to convince me it was a gas leak. I walked into the family room and as I turned on the light I declared "No, I know what gas smells like" which was followed by 10 of my friends popping out from behind furniture and shouting "SURPRISE!"
Anyone else out there care to share their favorite smells? And please, no gross stuff. I know you don't like the smell of farts and are only saying that for the shock value.
