The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt: Nosey Delights

Nosey Delights

From the yeasty warmth of freshly baked bread to the clean, summery haze of lavender flowers, we all have favorite smells we find particularly comforting. What’s yours?


As a middle schooler, we moved to Springfield, Illinois, and for the first time, I learned what a lilac bush smelled like.  I always looked forward to the season when the large lilac bush in our yard would bloom.  I didn’t have to do to the bush to smell the beautiful purple blooms because the wind would carry their scent throughout the yard.  When I moved back to Georgia, I tried to grow a lilac bush without any luck and resigned myself to only getting the scent from candles or lotions.  Then, we went to Prince Edward Island, and once again, I was treated to the sweet smell of lilacs carried on the breeze.
