And winter smell at the end of autumn signaling start of coziness and Christmas Smell of books, both new and old Coffee Flowers, but not too sweet Baking cakes Tea shops where many exotic teas are prepared Citrus fruit Fresh strawberries and raspberries from our garden List of bad smells : Body odors Cigarettes Dirty train and bus stations Big cities Heavy air in a room where window has not been opened for ages Some people love lavender or vanilla but for me they are not very pleasant.
