    Back when I could smell, it was coffee when you first open the can, fresh mowed lawns, the litter of kittens we had, nitromethane at the drag races.

    The corticosteroids I do to stay alive have dampened my smell to near nonexistence and my taste to nothing milder than Tabasco sauce.

    A clean Beach
    Fresh coffee beans
    Hot coffee
    Mint
    Cooked meat
    about half of the stuff listed in the thread.

    It's amazing how little can be tasted when you loose the sense of smell, as in many things cannot be tasted at all, and some can be barely tasted, in my research anyway.

    Chocolate is one that can be tasted a little, but it's hard to tell the difference between white, brown/milk, and dark! Ice cream can be tasted a little, but almost all of them taste like vanilla, sort of! Wanna taste garlic a little? Eat a whole raw segment of a clover. Wanna smell coffee, a tiny little bit? Open a fresh bag of roasted coffee beans, stick your nose in the bag, and breathe deeply :eeek:

    Ooh yeah I like that too, it has that sort of medicinal smell about it, like surgical spirit.

    I think they are PCB fumes. Really not good for you.

    Not sure if it's the same stuff they use on RC cars, but i have to agree on this one. (I guess it is, except for oil content) It smells awesome. (Unless it's in a confined space with poor ventilation. It burns in the eyes and airways!)

    Petrol and whatever gas it is they put in paintball guns. Or maybe its just the smell of the paintball area/field. Not sure :/

    I have so many...

    Freshly baked bread is high on this list!

    New circuitry

    D&G Light blue perfume

    Gucci by Gucci pour homme EDT

    Castrol "R" racing oil

    Freshly ground coffee

    Freshly cut grass (seems to be popular, think it reminds most people of summer!)

    Most baking but in particular hazelnuts being baked in something

    Mums sunday dinner/ Christmas dinner ;)
