What Is Your Favorite Childhood Smell

Play Doh


The reason I ask the question is because it was on this date in 1955 that Play Doh was first introduced, and studies show that children who grew up with Play Doh recognize the smell as one of their fondest memories.

I have to say though, the store bought Play Doh always smelled better than the homemade stuff.

Now that I’m 51 years old, if somebody could come up with a Yankee Candle that smelled like Play Doh, I’d be first in line to buy it.

For me, there’s also something special about the smell of freshly cut alfalfa.  It brings back fond memories of growing up on the farm.

The smell of corn silage does the same thing; it makes me think of early fall.

When it comes to indoor smells, the whiff of freshly baked bread always makes me smile.

Growing up, every Saturday morning my dad and I would drive over to my Auntie Nannie’s (Yes, I’m 51 years old and still call her that) for fresh bread and homemade jam.

I’m curious, what are some of your favorite childhood smells?

Feel free to comment and I’ll pass along the results Tuesday morning in the Main Street Cafe.
