Favorite Scents

BJ Gray rolled into Buzzy’s Country Store yesterday in her new car.  Despite the freezing temps, several folks ventured outside to check it out.  As they made their way back into the Store and commented about how nice the vehicle was, a second sentiment was also expressed “Sure do love that smell of a new car!”  
This led to a discussion of favorite scents.  Earlier in the afternoon David “Clutch” Raley had talked about how his wife Marcia was home baking cinnamon buns and how good it smelt.  Barbara Demko cited the smell of steamed crabs as being one of her favorites.  Duncan Leper mentioned the smell of wood burning from a chimney.
