I live in what you might call an upscale suburban neighbourhood, full of nice gardens and greenery. One of the most popular trees in said gardens is lilac. Just a couple of days ago they burst into bloom, and it's one of the most wonderful smells known to man, at least to this man.

I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.

Your own, carefully cultivated herb garden (and not of the psychoactive variety, I'm talking spices and the like)

BTW, I hate you for ever mentioning the smell of sawdust and burning wood. You made me go back to designing my new furniture >_<

Being unknowledgeable in the art of  furniture crafting, is it common to burn it? doesn't that defeat the purpose? Or is it the soot stained line you're after?

I'd say certain new dvds have a pretty awesome smell.

after living in downtown san diego, I got acclimated to the smell of hot tar and skunk
i know it's disgusting, but i have my best childhood memories with that smell around them

the interior smell of a very old car

new car smell

a newly opened pack of legos

mozerella cheese

a leather mitt or wallet (i especially love the taste too)

cherries

the exhaust of any off road vehicle

freshly cleaned clothing

noxema / vicks vaporub

greasy tools

ok, i can't think of anything more at the moment

Air and water have no smell unless something else is dissolved in them.

While the chemical compound water is an odorless substance, air is a generic name for the collection of gases that happens to be around us, any of which could have an odor.

As for the accepted makeup of the Earth's atmosphere, it does contain several trace elements that do have an odor, such as iodine and ozone.

Also, substances cannot be dissolved in a gas.

I was referring to the air usually found around us (better said in "canonical" form), not the air above a waste dump. Also, trace elements are too dilute to make us consciously sense a smell.
Also, gases can dissolve in gases. Air itself is a solution. See Wikipedia.
