Honeysuckle
Lily of the valley

Many others too but they are not of Nature.  Smile

Well, on that basis, coffee beans are grown in Nature before they are grilled and so I add freshly ground coffee. Mmm ...  very happy

This morning there was that special undefinable smell you get when it's snowed.

I think it's because it's exclusive to Nature smells rather than covering all smells/aromas and the other senses.
But there are still plenty of things, let me think ...

- tomato plants, their smell is strong and mouth-watering
- rabbit hutch with rabbit(s) in residence

You didn't say they had to be good smells so I can add some that aren't so nice :
- new milk fresh from the cow (some people love the smell but not me)
- that weird smell that drifts up from a stagnant pool covered in green slime
- the dusty smell of old stone (e.g. from ancient tombstones)

Freshly mown hay
Heather and fern
Smell of the sea on the breeze

And in winter the smell of burning wood or turf from an open fire

Ooh, yes, let's go mad  Wink and what about all those nostalgic scents that transport you back to childhood ? The smell of hot toffee when Mum made toffee apples, cakes baking, the aroma of a Sunday roast with all the trimmings, wet wood from the garden shed after the rain, hot tar when the road was resurfaced, the steam coming off the horses pulling the beer carts in the Summer, ... and as someone said elsewhere the Brylcream from Dad's hair.  very happy

Smell of the sea

The sound of the sea

Palm trees blowing

Walking barefoot on sandy beaches

For anyone who has not realised yet, I love the sea  Rolling Eyes

Oh my goodness, Spiritlinker, that transported me right to the seaside. Mmm... I love the sea too, especially the wild ocean.

Pine trees
Lavender
Apples just off the tree

One that's not nature : aniseed twist

In our house the apple pie specialist was my Dad. Mmm, they were scrumptious.
We don't do enough home baking these days.
All those gorgeous, mouth-watering and delicious smells wafting through the house. Oh, happy days.

I think it's a cigar, cc.  Smile   You either love 'em or you hate 'em. I love the smell of cigar - brings back wonderful memories of Havana.
