It has been said that sense of smell is the most powerful for recalling memories. What are some smells that remind you of places or situations? Here are a few of mine: Diesel fuel exhaust always reminds me of Europe…Poland in particular. Probably from all the times I’ve been to Poland, inhaling the fumes from poorly tuned trucks. But every time I visit Poland, it does have a distinctive smell about it. Whiskey/Scotch reminds me of the time I drank way too much of the stuff and makes me feel nauseous. I can’t go near the stuff anymore. Vodka’s still on my good side though! Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches reminds me of junior kindergarten class, when all of the kids would have that for lunch and the entire class smelled like it.
