I've had smells make me almost completely relive memories, both good and bad.
But one time, and I will never forget it as I was going thru a divorce and very depressed...
I walked outside my house and I got the smell of spring. Not just any spring, but springtime from my childhood.
I was instantly put back into a memory of sitting in the grass at a very young age and really smelling the world for the first time.
That feeling/smell carried on thru the divorce process.
It was actually the smell that pushed me forward when I didn't think I could take any more because it opened up my senses to what I had been blind to
for many years.
Very hard to explain, but it was a very profound memory/smell association.
