A certain smell can take you right back to a particular moment in a second. Tonight let’s reminisce about the scents from our childhoods that are still so fresh in our minds. Which can you remember really fondly?
The smell of opening one of old foil Polaroid cartridges
Sweet and chemical, plus the instant gratification rush that comes with knowing you’re about to take some Polaroid pictures!
Tanning oil that smells like coconuts and summer
The smell of marijuana in the air
Ink on paper
The spirit duplicator was a cheap way to print a pop quiz, and even more popular with students, who couldn’t resist sniffing the sweetly toxic Ditto fluid smell.
Library card catalogues
Homemade food by mum
The 1970s smelled like food which was homemade. There were always great smells coming from our kitchen like bread, pies and cakes
Smell of clean sheets line dried
Scratch n sniff stickers
Chalk on dusters and the chalkboard
Old TVs and radios that were filled with tubes instead of transistors
The smell of real linoleum
She had that sickly sweet strawberry smell!
Real Christmas trees
