Default Olfactory hallucination

I've mentioned these before. My most common ones are bleach, brownies and the deoderant Right Guard. Today I got a new one, boiling macaroni! I wish I knew why these came. They do make life interesting and humorous. all these things are some favorite things of mine. I love the smell of things cleaned with bleach, brownies and mac and cheese are some of my favorite foods and my Dad used Right Guard. It meant so much to me that my husband did to!

The only I get is the smell of something hot. Ya know like when the tv has been on for awhile and you go near it you can smell the "hot". Thats what I get and I hate it. Im constantly going to each of my electronics to see if thats where the smell is coming from and, NO!! its just ME again...

I get that "is something hot?" all the time. I used to get the rare ones like "you cooking lasagna?" but not so much anymore. Wet dog! that was another one. The dog has been dead 5 years! and yet I can still smell wet dog! I think I want my carpet steam cleaned.

Mine was similar to that "hot" smell. It was that musty odor a central heater makes when turned on for the first time.

The other was wet concrete.

I will agree with SallyC on all of her's. Then again I also like the smell of Pine-Sol cleaner.

We're not smokers here, but I will smell cig smoke out of nowhere and only in one spot at a time. It reminds me of my sister who smoked like a chimney. I was walking in my house one day and stepped into the doorway of my bathroom and BAM!! I smelled her!! Either side of the doorway, nothing. Just in the doorway I could smell it. Those kinds of smells, I will always welcome

When I smell canvas I can't help but remember when Dad would set up the tent so we could "camp" in the backyard.

Vinegar reminds me of coloring eggs at Eastertime.
