Eight smells I love


  1. Newly cut tree / wood: I saw this huge pile of wood as I was walking / taking some pictures yesterday and today. When I came close up, I could smell that it hadn’t been long ago since these had been standing in the forrest.
  2. Freshly baked bread: On saturday I was up at 7 o’clock to bake bread. I know, it’s crazy. But I wanted freshly baked bread for breakfast. And I had promised my mum to bake bread that weekend, so I thought it would be fun to have the breads ready when they got up. I put the alarm on 7 sharp, because I knew I wouldn’t wake up all by myself. I dozed off a few minutes wondering if I should skip it all and just roll over and sleep more. But I stayed strong and got up! The smell in the kitchen was heavenly! And as usual the bread tasted lovely. Nothing beats warm bread with butter and brown cheese!
  3. Newly cut grass: It’s quite boring to move the lawn, but the smell of the grass when it’s cut, makes it worth it! Ah, when will the summer be here?
  4. Freshly baked chocolate cake: Doesn’t really need much of an explanation… I love everything with chocolate cakes and the smell is one of them. Every time I think about chocolate cake I wish I had a piece or three around. I wish I could just clap my hands twice and then a cake would be in the oven. Errr… wishfull thinking… Linda is celebrating her 30iest birthday next saturday. Yesterday she told me her mother is baking a chocolate cake. Heaven! Her chocolate cakes are so delish.
  5. My perfumes 212 and 212 Sexy by Carolina Herrera. What can I say? They smell good.
  6. Pondus and Samson’s fur. My parents’ two cats. Their fur smells lovely. I can bury my nose in it and snuggle. I was home visiting a friend this weekend and then had a lot of time with the cat. Good times!
  7. Baby skin. New born babies smells good. I can’t wait to see my little nephew this week. I’m happy that I work close to where Hanne and Geir lives, so I can visit every day. I “talked” to Hanne via sms on friday and she said she wanted lots of small visits. I can do that! the first photoshoot with auntie Kjersti will be this week! hah! Expect some pictures on flickr!
  8. Newly washed hair. I love the smell when  my hair is washed. Except that one time when I washed it with some Herbal Essence with rose-smell. Then I almost puked! It’s no fun walking around smelling like a rose all day, I tell you!

  1. Isn’t it funny how some smells are just universally loved? It makes me feel a little bit closer to humanity, loving the same smells. =)
