Have you visited Reddit lately? It's a great resource for what's new and popular online. Users on the site can actually vote "up" or "down" links that are posted, thus determining what's popular (and yes, even submitting their own links!).

 

A popular "sub"-Reddit is "AskReddit", where users post thought-provoking, inspired questions for other users to answer. We were so inspired by one of the questions — via Redditor meh_mediocre — that we thought we'd put it out to our own community to share:


what smells will always trigger a memory for you? 

 

Here's some memorable smells that were shared by Redditors. You can click on the image to go directly to its original link:

What triggers memories?

Now let me think........every time I see a horse that looks like Trigger I remember the day I was told he'd been stuffed and put in a burger bar. And recently sold at auction to a 'minted' - trans: rich American.


Growing up in Ontario as an army brat, the pull of the East Coast for me and my family was just part of being a Maritimer away from home.

Every summer, we packed the family car and drove from London, Ontario to Nova Scotia's north east coast.

The thrill of being 'down home' didn't truly hit until we rolled through New Brunswick's Tantramar Marshes.

It was here that we got our first real smell of the mud flats, mingled with the scent of spruce and salty ocean air that told us we were almost home.

We usually stopped at the border to be officially welcomed by the tartan clad piper  -- and to breathe in deeply.

From there to the old homestead, the ride was peaceful and reflective, even with two youngsters in the back seat. We were home again.

The smell of sex always triggers fond memories of similar previous encounters. It always inspires me to Herculean efforts to duplicate or surpass past experiences.

 

Of course, at 69 years of age, "Herculean efforts" has a whole different meaning from what it once meant.

I think

my Dad or Grandpa used to wear

Old Spice..

and an old boyfriend

wore... Canoe

and i recall

Avon.. scent being used

for mosquitoes  forget the name of that

Patachouli reminds me of the

flower days in San Fran, loved them!
