Best Smells In the World

Everyone has a scent that makes their tastebuds tingle.

The Top Ten

1 Fresh Air

What kind of single celled organism used the last of their brain power to say a can of gasoline smells better that fresh air.

In a stuffy room in your classroom for one hour? I love the feeling when getting out of stinky hot and stuffy areas then walking out into he nice cool breeze and just smelling, well, fresh air!

since I'm high school, I get to move around a lot and also go to different buildings

I had to vote for this just to say that it smells like nothing! Petrol should be number one seriously!

After being in a stuffy room, fresh air is like stepping into heaven!

2 Vanilla

no smell super good just imagine you're in a room with vanilla it smells so good

Vanilla smells like... "everything is gonna be all right" and "warm fire place in winter" and love.

Vanilla is super good that it’s the only flavor of yogurt that I like the rest I hate

It's comforting and just reminds me of my childhood. My grandmother used to make these delicious vanilla cupcakes the just smelt amazing when they were freshly baked. It is such a soft and warm smell.

3 Fresh Petrol

Why is my nose so weird? I am kinda glad other people love the smell too. I have no idea why, and people might think are we crazy? But it is just another weird, interesting smell.

Not too much though... If it starts to develop as a habit, it could lead to brain damage.

I sometimes just chase a motorcycle and smell the smell of petrol XD. Am I stupid?

I am so glad I am not the only one who likes this! So many people call me "STRANGE" for liking fresh petrol!

4 Coffee

I always make my mum a coffee each morning and in fact I've drank coffee even though I wasn't meant to because I was too young. If I could I'd have a jar of coffee beans next to me at all times, saying I LOVE coffee is an understatement

I love the smell of coffee! It smells so nice! there's nothing better than a steaming cup of coffee in the morning!

BOOM you're awake! It reminds me of early mornings with my family during my childhood.

The smell of good coffee brewing in the morning while still in bed. I just lie there with my eyes closed, breathing deeply through my nose..

5 Barbecue

So my and my wife, sandriella, we live in texas okie and the bacon, man that bacon

Man, the smell of a barbecue! There should be a Hugo boss aftershave called barbeque.

It's a very good smell but not a good taste to me and people judge me for things I don't like like what's wrong with that!

Good old American heritage! BBQ ribs, BBQ chicken. I'll take BBQ over anything!

6 Freshly Cut Grass

smells like something that would taste nice, also smells very green and earthly, like a forest/nature

Fresh cut grass on a lazy, hazy summer afternoon is the best only after Autumn leaves crunching underfoot on a clear crisp October morning with the smell of smoke from a wood stove wafting through the air

This was in fact the one of the smells that Hermione loved the most, from the love potion in Half Blood Prince. Just love it, especially after the rain

Sorry to the guys that like it...but I have allergies around cut grass...it's a good smell till I sneeze to death! SORRY!

7 Rain

I have know idea why but it just relaxes me I love a rainy day when I'm sad, mad, or just happy

Sometimes I pretend the raindrops on the car window race and my raindrop always loses

Yup. Whenever I go to collect rainwater, I just- sit outside with the jar sometimes just to smell the rain

There is nothing else in the world better than rain. why is it so hated?

8 Bacon

As a great man named Homer once said-mmmmmmmmmmmm, Bacon

When you smell it your mind blanks out and you just think about how good it will be to put that stuff in your mouth. It is really good!

Bacon is awesome and if you don't like the smell of bacon your not American

Petrol smells gross! Bacon, chocolate or Apple smell should be on number 1

9 Popcorn

Its that smell when you enter a movie theater. It's a buttery oily crunchy cheesy snack

Awesome to the taste it smells only nice with butter or if it was just made

M! Nothing is better than sitting down at the movie theater and smelling the warm, buttery goodness of popcorn!

The melted butter plus the fluffy, salty popcorn make this so awesome of a smell.

10 Campfires

I don't know it just reminds me of camping and I love being under the stars plus it smells amazing

Camping was my favorite thing as a kid and whenever we would come back home after all my clothes would smell like campfire. IT WAS THE BEST

Nothing better than on a Summer night than roasting a marshmallow over a nice crackling, smoky smelling fire.

I don't know about this one but burnt wood smells nice so why not

The Newcomers

? Cucumber
? New Video Game Disc

This sounds weird but I love it

The Contenders

11 New Books

Is this because I love reading or is it just the amazing smell of new books?!

Who said it's just new books, I love the smell of an old book because of the slight dust scent.

I love books. The smell, when you walk into a bookstore, is just unmistakable.

I go to bookstores regularly not to buy books but just to smell them

12 Melted Chocolate

a way to a man's heart is through his stomach - it's similar with girls: chocolate

Some say "Diamonds are a girls best friend" but really gentlemen, it's chocolate. The smell, the taste, the sight, and all the senses love it!

I'm drooling over this one.

yummmmmm! I love this scent one of the best things the world has to offer!

13 Flowers

In springtime tons of tulips bloom at my house, so every time you walk out the door you're hit with the smell of flowers. SO GOOD!

Flowers have such a wonderful smell. It reminds me of childhood and mud pies for some reason.

Flowers smell magnificent and magical, no wonder why there are so many perfumes with the scent of flowers!

How is flowers #33? Laundry Detergent is above this. People have no sense of smell

14 Garlic

no offense but I don't like the smell of garlic because it gives me stomachaches :(

Garlic smells horrible makes your breath smell so bad nobody wants to be around you

Smells like shawarma. Although it smells horrible in your mouth, it smells great when it’s being cooked.

Whenever I cook, I fry up some garlic. Even if it isn't in the meal I fry it because the smell makes everything taste better.

15 Bread

When I go to the supermarket I always end up near the bakery just smelling the fresh bread

That smell of fresh out of the oven bread once you enter the bakery. Smells so warm and welcoming.

THE BEST SMELL PEOPLE! Every time I go grocery shopping, I have to stop by the bread section, stand there, and breathe in the smell for a good five minutes.

Really love this smell of bread. The best is hot Portuguese Bread
To dunk in your Sunnyside up eggs for breakfast!

Or for dipping in soupushcalden. YUM,

16 Peppermint

Love IT! It reminds me of candy canes!

I love the smell of Peppermint. It makes me feel fresh

It has such a sweet scent mixed with a tang, that I just love!

It's a weird minty tangy taste in a good way

17 Spearmint

Spearmint is amazing to smell

Spearmint smells really good smells like good breath

It reminds me of toothpaste and clean teeth...

Ah, reminds me of all the gum I've chewed...

18 Girl's Neck

A neck doesn't smells like anything, if anything the smell is probably perfume.

What's all this obsession with flesh!? Are y'all just creepy or is everyone on this site secretly a serial killer who smells their victims?

I've never smelled another girl's neck before.

omg girls necks are the best thing ever and I'm a girl but gotta love it

19 Chocolate Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, and often flavored with vanilla.

Its just the best. You can't compare it to anything else. Its that smell on valentines day when you open a heart box from a special someone and the coco fills your nose. You can't resist.

Chocolate. It's so sweet and delicious. Do I even need to explain?

Always a winner

Covered strawberries with whipped cream..MM

20 New Car

Reminds me of the poem Nothing Gold Can Stay. It will never stay forever but boy is it good

Smell of a brand new Mercedes!

New car smell. Doesn't matter what the make is. It's all good.

New car smells so good I would like to stay in it all the time

I never really thought about it but subway smells really good.

This is the best, Subway smells amazing from the smell of the fresh bread to the verity of toppings

The shop smells AMAZING!

YEAH!

22 Coconut

Overwhelmingly tropical. Mix it up with mango to create a heavenly aroma.

Awesome! Especially if it's a bar of soap (New Zealand's full of coconuts)

So tropical! Makes me wanna travel to Hawaii.

Yes! So tropical and comforting. Especially in a cake or in body wash

23 Bakery

The smell of freshly made bread is just so amazing. Your senses explode with happiness

Nothing can beat freshly baked anything, I can't decide if I like coffee or a bakery's scent more!

My grandparents used to own a donut shop and I remember visiting them and smelling the fresh dough and glaze, put me in heaven, I just love the smell.

Step into the bakery and it’s a whole new world, smells fresh and welcoming. Very sweet smell, smells like winter and autumn.

24 Forest

They are so peaceful and quiet but the best part about them is the smell. Its just so calming and relives all your stress. Pine forests are my favorite.

Smells like life and hope and fresh air... In short freedom.

Invigorating, uplifting, cleansing, esp during or right after it rains...the very best!

Forest is beautiful like deer living in the forest

25 New Shoes

I will go into a shoe store just to get a whiff of that new shoe smell. I may be broke and not have money to by shoes. I just love the smell.

I can't stop burying my nose in a pair of new shoes, until I wear them a couple of times, then it wears off.

My friend told me she liked this, I thought she was crazy until now - Peachfeather

I lock my room and just smell my shoes. I can't take my nose out from the shoes.

Now I have an excuse to sniff my shoes!
