Best Smells In the World

Everyone has a scent that makes their tastebuds tingle.
The Top Ten
1 Fresh Air

Fresh air sums up all the smells I like: rain, earth, flowers, pines trees (Piney wood east texan here), meadows full of Indian paintbrush and black-eyed Susans, blue sky, among other things. I love being outside. I love the woods. I love evenings and mornings, cool afternoons, moonlight lit nights. Dog wood blossoms, turning leaves; it’s all of it together that makes ‘fresh air’.

There is just something really special about going outside in the morning, take the time to look around you and breathe in 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 the nice cool breeze and just smelling, well, fresh air!

2 Vanilla

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.

Vanilla is magical, its like a large hug by a roasted marshmallow after a rainy day

Or working out all day then your head hitting the pillow in bed

Yes, that's how magical the smell of vanilla is.

Vanilla is so creamy, delicious and it just smells like an ice cream cone in the summer stillness. If that makes any scents. Haha scents like sense haha never mind.

It's a very sweet smell and when you smell it you could almost literally taste it! It such a good smell and I don't know about you but I love love LOVE it! VANILLA!

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.

I think that petrol is one of the best smells in the world. It smells like city life, like comfort and safety. Sometimes, construction smells like it which is why I always end up stopping and sniffing the air like some dog after a bone.
The other reason is that it smells poisonous but isn't really. So there's the chance of revelling in danger.

Yes I agree this is good smell to wake up to every morning! I enjoy spraying myself with AXE GAS, their newest product that smells like gasoline. People compliment me and tell me that they want some of my AXE GAS for themselves! Ha! This will make you the popular person in the workplace/school! Very good smell!

I LOVE The smell of fresh petrol in the morning, but back to the point it is amazing whenever a car drives by I take a deep breath and make it last! Some people might say it is one of the worst smells in the world, but to me it's HEAVEN!

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

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..

When I wake up, I immediately smell my moms coffee and say "coffee again" even before I realize I'm cold.

A smell that reminds you of a happy morning breakfast and feeling that will leave you warm

5 Rain

Do you remember when you're walkin' along, outside and alone, and the only thing to keep you company is the dew drops on the flowers and trees? Come one, I mean, the smell of wet soil? There's nothing better. It's refreshing and natural and makes me go AH. Sigh.
Rain is definitely best.

I have been able to smell rain before it hits all my life, my grandpa got me into storms when I was very young. I get peace from a storm, I've chased a few tornados but the speed limits around here go from 55 down to 25 in less than a city block.

Very peaceful like how could people not like it. If you are coming home from a long day and it's raining it's very peaceful to just go outside and wear a rain jacket or something like a gazebo to protect you from being wet it's just the best thing in the world

One of those amazing smells, after a long hot week and finally you start to smell the rain in the air, that smell of soil in the air and you know it coming. And then finally a beautiful shower to cool you down after a long, hard, hot week.

6 Freshly Cut Grass

Grass being cut in the summer is without question on smell that brings out the simple innocent days of summer vacation between 5th and 6th grades. Pull on my PF Flyers and I could run faster through the grass and jump higher over the mulch. Opps did I give my age away. Those were the summers that seem to be remembered but lost with the absence of kids today not venturing out from the inside comforts of ipads and video games. Come on parents shove them kids outside after you mow the lawn.

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!

One of the best summer smells, for sure. Reminds me of my childhood.

7 Barbecue

YES! I'm already an avid BBQ'er but the smell makes me love it even more. It doesn't even matter what you cook since it all smells great. Of course, nothing beats a briquette barbecue.

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!

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

Every time I have an old fashioned barbeque. there is a heavenly scent.

8 Popcorn

Demeter makes a great fragrance called Popcorn. And I always love the Popcorn flavored Jelly Bellies. Mix that with Waffle Cone smell and you're delicious

Bath and Body need to release Popcorn scented perfumes, body sprays, lotions, hand sanitizers and etc. I'm honestly surprised they haven't done it yet.

I don't even like the taste of popcorn overmuch, but I'll pop a whole bowl just to get a whiff of that buttery scent... Mm!

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

9 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!

I don't know how farts got on here. Personally I hate the smell of freshly cut grass.

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

10 New Books

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

Love love love new book smell especially when you go through the pages really fast

This can be said for new paper especially the paper design in new video games

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

The Contenders
11 Campfires

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

I love the smell of campfires! Every time I smell it, it reminds me of the summer (my favourite season by the way), camping, and roasting marshmallows on the fire and making s’mores.

I thought this was going to be in the top three. I can't believe it's sixty-three! There's stuff above this that I think smells awful!

Nothing like a campfire in the summer to make me happy! Absolutely adore it, even in winter, it's so comforting and incredible just agabafah!

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

So many flowers. So many smells. As long as it's not the Amorphophallus titanium flower, they all pretty much smell terrific.

One of the most beautiful things in nature and quite possibly what produces it's nicest smells.

13 Melted Chocolate

Melted chocolate, yum! That smells so good! My favorite scent is that too! Melted chocolate is in your mother's cookies and the bakeries shop!

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!

Chocolate! Yes chocolate is the best smell ever! And Melted chocolate smells about 100 times better! Makes me want chocolate just thinking about it

Chocolate is the best thing ever, and the smell is really good.

14 Bread

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,

It smells so good! And I don't mean the cheap bread that is in plastic bags and already cut, I mean REAL and fresh bread.

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

15 Peppermint

Honestly the best. So welcoming and sweet, especially if it's with chocolate

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

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

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

16 Garlic

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.

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

There is nothing better than the smell of cooking garlic and onions.

Lets be serious... There's nothing much better than garlic... Sort it out!

17 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.

I can name SSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many reasons why I love this 1. it is so peacfull (a I can not get any peace with 5 siblings) 2. when it rains and there is mist its just magical 3. the animals lets just be honest I like animals more than people

I love the forest, there are all kinds of smells from the trees and from everything that surrounds us.

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

18 Spearmint

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...

Spearmint is amazing to smell

19 Girl's Neck

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?

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

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

Why is this on here!?!? Necks smell like sweat.

20 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?

Covered strawberries with whipped cream..MM

Is there anything better...?

21 Subway Subway is a privately held American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily purveys submarine sandwiches (subs) and salads. Subway is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the worldand, as of June 2017, has approximately 45,000 stores located in more than 100 countries. More than half of the ...read more.

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

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

The shop smells AMAZING!

22 New Car

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

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

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

Especially during a hot Summer day. Such a relaxing smell!

23 Bakery

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.

The smell of freshly cooked bread straight out the oven it's almost as good as petrol but not quite

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

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

24 Coconut

The smell is subtle but it feels like meditation. I just the vibe coconuts give off in general.

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)

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

25 Cherry Blossoms

I'v never smelt them before. I still voted for it. That's my weeb level.

Um, ok, why is this 37 and Petrol #1? The smell of cherry blossoms smells like possibilities, it's a sweet, wholesome smell but not overwhelming like lilacs. Petrol is a sharp, silvery, plate-glassy scent that just reminds me of countless hours in a glaringly bright classroom. Cherry blossoms have GOT to be number 1 for me. Vanilla is a close second.

I love cherry blossoms and they're beautiful but unfortunately I'm allergic to them.

I want a tree of them, so I can smell them everyday!
