What is your favorite smell? Mine would be the smell of a lake. It just has the outdoorsy, clean, fresh smell to it.
2,000 people were asked to name their favorite smell, and also the #1 smell they HATE.
Our top ten favorite smells are: Fresh-cut grass . . . coffee . . . bacon . . . clean laundry . . . cake . . . fresh air . . . fried food . . . the ocean . . . vanilla . . . and Christmas trees. A few that just missed the top ten are chocolate, barbecue, and baby powder.
The top ten smells we HATE are: Body odor . . . sour milk . . . mold . . . sweat . . . stagnant water . . . armpits . . . dirty socks . . . other dirty clothes . . . damp walls (???) . . . and sauerkraut.
And this is interesting: There was one smell that almost made BOTH lists. Gasoline ranked 11th on the list of smells we love . . . and 15th on the list of smells we hate.
