Scent Memories

List four scents that remind you of your childhood.

1. Campfires. My parents and I lived in the woods for a while and did a lot of our cooking over a campfire. And, for that matter…

2. Butter and Garlic Sauteing in a Pan. I might be mistaken, but I’m fairly certain my mother started off all of her meals by preparing these two ingredients.

3. Hay and horse manure. Doesn’t sound too glamorous, but it reminds me of some of the farms I used to visit when I was a kid. I absolutely love when I meet people that smell like this. But they have to smell like hay more than crap!

4. Musty basement smell. It reminds me of when I was 10 years old and thought the coolest bedroom in the house was in the basement (my sister had already claimed it for its day-long darkness).

Go on – Tell me! What’s on your PUKKA list?


About pukkalists

I used to suffer from list love. Now I've found a way to embrace my obsession with listing and make it fun! My name is Joy and I live in Southern Maine. I am an avid reader (so many books - too little time!) and a practicing writer. My higher aim is to be kind, compassionate and mindful. I believe in "being" more than "doing." One of the greatest blessings in my life is my exposure to like-minded people. I relish sharing (had I gone to preschool, I would have been a hit!) and I can't wait to read your own unique PUKKA lists!
