Better than vanilla? Let's see: sawdust, freshly baked bread, Swiss strawberries, your significant other's perfume (that's very subjective, I know), coffee (mentioned above) just to name a few.

Alright, I wanted this to be civil but half the posts are trolling me so I'm going after the most agitating responses now.

sawdust

Yuck. Come on, really?

Quote
coffee

Coffee sucks. If you need caffeine to stay awake it's because your heart stopped beating 5 years ago. Congrats on joining the ranks of the undead.

Quote
perfume

Perfume is overrated because everyone attaches its scent to the person they're sleeping with. ANYTHING that gets attached to someone you're sleeping with is going to have its perceived value inflated beyond belief.

Quote
roses

Cliched. I'm sure there are better smelling flowers but I'm not a floral person so I can't really say anything for sure.

Is it just me or are you just getting increasingly vulgar Shiver? This isn't goonland.

Anyhow, I'd have answered that the smell of a person (such as a SO) can be the best, but I see you already covered that with perfume. (Not perfume, not body odour, but just smell. Everyone has one.)

Other than that I dunno. I like the smell of oranges, even though I wouldn't say it's the best smell in the world. I also like the smell of burning wood (in small doses).

No, I just said I'm losing my patience with a topic that was supposed to be semi-serious. The best way to show me up in this topic would probably be to track down a aforementioned "floral person" because there's bound to be a flower that just kills everything else mentioned in here.

The burning wood suggestion isn't too bad, it's just that most types of wood really don't give off the kind of smell you guys are talking about.

Maybe people find it hard to dissociate you from the role you are actively playing in the internet thread?

I'm not sure what you mean. All the woods I've ever burned in a fireplace gives off the same kind of smoke. But then again I've only burned european woods. Maybe redwood smells different?

It still smells damn good though - which is the topic. Cofee might get my vote - oh and maybe molten chocolate. My partner REALLY likes the smell of petrol for some reason.

I feel really ... spiritual.. or "at ease" when I smell certain kinds of model clay (which I grew up spending tons of time building stuff with). Different brands evoke a different state of mind.

Certain kinds of packaging can do the same, like a freshly opened lego kit/manual.

As for food, I sniff empty chocolate wrappings sometimes and reminiscence the time... 4 minutes ago... when I so joyfully enjoyed the chocolate bar itself.

Empty pizzaboxes smell nice too. And if you throw them up in the air you can punch a hole in them with your knuckle, or fail, which hurts almost as much as trying to break a wooden pencil between your fingers in 7th grade.

Coffee may not be good for you, and I don't like the taste, but good coffee smells awesome.
A past girlfriend of mine used to work in a coffee shop and letmetellyou she smelled heavenly when she got off shift.

Besides, the question is pretty subjective anyway. Just because Shiver doesn't like coffee doesn't mean someone else can't enjoy it.

Freshly baked cinnamon rolls? Has this been covered already? Or when you're browning butter

Oh my, I think we have a winner here. there is nothing like the smell of new lego. Its been at least 15 years since i opened a pack, but the association with smell and funness cannot be beaten.
