    Inspired by Bassman's recent thread on sounds, what smells provoke memories or general feelings of nostalgia for you? I have a few off the top of my head:

    Crayons
    Newly opened toys
    Christmas Trees

    What are yours?

        The smell of new plastic or rubber dolls and toys.
        The sort of musty smell of old books.
        Nestles Quik
        new pencils and erasers
        vanilla incense. reminds me of the first time I went to the local renaissance festival
        Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                          Really? Gasoline is one of those things you smell on an almost continual bases. Most things that make one nostalgic are because they haven't been experienced in ages. You must not own a car :lol:
