I love the smell of my BO after a hard days work. Smells like I've accomplished something. Also love the smell of sagebrush after a good rain. Lawn clippings, lilac bushes in bloom, 2-stroke exhaust from a chainsaw combined with freshly cut pine, and wild game cooked on the grill are always awesome smells.

I hate the smell of a fresh sprayed skunk. Like one poster said, the smell of a gutshot animal when that cavity is first opened.....(shivers). I really dislike the smell of a big city, just has a smell of funk to it. Sweaty shoes! And most of all I hate the smell of petchuli (the hippy incense).

*EDIT: Forgot and this is because it was so terrible. The Amine that they use on a submarine to scrub the air to clean the oxygen. You could put clothes in double plastic bags and it would still permeate the plastic. Worst smell ever!!!

Me too. For me, it smells like pheremones in which the females will like.
Overly bad B.O can be nasty though. But when I have that sweaty, phermoney smell, I feel like it's meant for the ladies. haha.

Juniper has such a mystifying smell to it!

It's not just Centennial...The West side of the Wind River Range up close to the continental divide has that same smell with the view of all those wonderful peaks (Cirque of the Towers)

One of the most memorable trips i ever took while living in Laramie, i saw thousands of Prairie Chickens in the foothills leading up to the Snowy Range Mountain. I was about 4 miles outside of Centennial.

I loved living there. My wife couldn't take the cold, though. If it weren't for that, my son and i would be living the lives of wild mountain men.

There is a blue cologne that smells like excrement and BO. I won't even name it lest I have to smell it again because someone deliberately wears it around me.

Almost all perfumes and colognes make me sick, but the blue one is like a concentrated body odor/feces bomb. It kills me that people actually buy these things. Also, there's a celeb endorsed one that is worse than death.

Fav: I would say fresh baked cinnamon rolls or bread is one of my favorite smells. Along with fresh cut Cedar, and a fresh rainfall on a crystal clear mountain lake, the smell of the trees combined with the water and the freshness is so relaxing.

Neg: Asphalt hate that, skunks, Chlorine, and probably many others.
