      The smell of the Aussie Cheese Fries and Kookaburra Chicken Fingers during times of which I eat at my local Outback Steakhouse restaurant. Yum!

            I agree. The smell of my new clothes and shoes on the first day of school is something I will never forget.

              old recipe Play-doh. That new stuff doesn't resemble the old stuff at all.

                The new smell of comics and shit, also the smell of gasoline (love it). For some reason the smell of rain after a long dry period brings back memories. Weird.

                  Bean Burritos & Cinnamon Twists from Taco Bell. Me & my late father used to go up there a lot back when I lived in New Orleans

                  I also remember this very distinct pomergrante incense that my mom got when she was managing The Gap up at our local mall.

                          That outside smell after a rain storm.

                              Candles for some reason make me feel nostalgic. I don't remember candles everywhere growing up, but hey. Anyway, comic book stores smell wonderful, and I have to side with Pixies(As always) on this one, tennis balls smell great.

                                Oh yeah, old comics do have a special smell to them.

                                What about greasy bowling alleys and roller skating rinks?

                                Not all that pleasant, but a poignant smell nevertheless.

                                  Funny you mention it, I'll be going to one in about 30 minutes. I'll tell you what I think when I come back.

                                    What not even a little chuckle from the innuendo? Okay fine I know it was a lame joke.

                                    Old comics smell pretty good but for some reason I like the smell of the new paper they use nowadays better. If you wanna get really specific there's a smell that's around my aunt's place in OZ. It's minty in a way but I can't quite put my finger on it. Everytime I catch a scent of that it totally brings back memories of the memorable holidays spent there.

                                      Play-Doh would definitely be one of them.

                                      Also the smell of dirt...as weird as that sounds.

                                      Another smell that I can remember is the smell of the inside of a brand new NES or SNES game box right after you opened it for the first time.

                                        I remember one time when we were 12, my cousin farted up the room. It smelled like he had been feasting on jalapenos and hadn't shit in months. It's the only time I remember a fart burning my nose and making my eyes water. I beat him up and dunked his head in the toilet for that one.

                                        Smells like that you can never really forget.

                                          I really remember the smell of the Mossman and Stinkor action figures. Also a wet Grizzlor figure. The star Wars figures had a smell to them too, seemed exclusive to them.

                                          For some reason a VHS boxset of the Back to the Future trilogy I owned had a distinctive smell to it, really takes me back to my childhood.

                                          Another one was with game cartridges (Sega Master System for me). After playing the game the chip part of the cartridge would smell a bit, almost like burning. Don't know why I thought to smell the things in the first place.
