#SoCS Looking at Scents

The prompt for Linda G Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday (#SoCS) is “cent/scent/sent.” Use them in any form you like. Use one, use two or use them all. Bonus points if you use all three, and Cheryl will put your next drink on David’s tab.  (I could never resist a free drink Linda!) 

I have a fantastic sense of smell. My children often tease me about it because I smell things that no one else can smell. “You and your nose Mammy.” Scent is important. Sometimes it evokes a memory; it can give us happy feelings or sad feelings.

I have photos in my camera roll that make me feel warm, hungry, refreshed, excited and sometimes nostalgic. It’s not just the image that conjures up feelings, it’s also the smell associated with the image.

Here’s my favourites.

The refreshing scent of the sea and freshly washed up seaweed.

Frothy Nespresso.

Black Magic Chocolates.


Coconut Oil

Freshly Cut Grass

1 cent, 2 cent and 5 cent coins. (For when we play cards at Christmas) Copper coins remind me of childhood days!

Aw the lovely smell of Cotton after she’s had a bath.

My son sent me this photo. This little munchkin will be joining the family this Christmas. I can’t wait to hold him/her and inhale the most gorgeous scent of a new born baby. This is my favourite smell in the whole world!

  1. You are like my husband. Super sniffer. Some things are better left unsniffed. 🙂 I know what you mean by baby smell, though. They smell heavenly. Congratulations, Gloria. BTW, I did use your summary for Story Chat this month. It was perfect. Only the first 99 words, though.

      • I didn’t know that about you. Do you write about it on your blog? I’m very sensitive to some smells like flowers indoors. So far aroma therapy hasn’t bothered me when I get a massage. I am particularly fond of peppermint and lavendar.

      • Hi Marsha. Yes, I do write about it on my other blog weareholistic.wordpress.com
        But I’ve been neglecting it a little recently. 😬 Too involved in fiction and wrapping up my novel these last few months!
