  10. I’m going off-piste today with this wonderful prompt!
    For a previous post I asked ‘What-is-the-essence-of-France?’ In other words ‘What does France smell like?’ I think this post links to the prompt perfectly! I wonder what you think?

  17. What you do not smell is called iocane powder. I have an excellent sense of smell, but I don’t code my memories that way.

  27. I cannot describe what my nana’s kitchen smelled like because there is no specific scent I know of to compare it to. But on rare occasions, I walk into someplace and unexpectedly inhale a whiff of the same smell that was a constant part of her kitchen. Permanent just like the yellowed-white plastic radio on her burgundy-red linoleum countertop or the see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil statuette of monkeys perched next to the acorn-and-pipe-cleaner figurine who played a single bongo drum, both resting on a shelf above the ledge where her princess phone lounged.

    It wasn’t the smell of cookies in the oven or bread dough rising because she never baked. Her bankrupt cookie jar squatted in a corner to the left of the sink, tucked next to the toaster. It wasn’t the smell of fried chicken sizzling on the stove or a Sunday roast baking in the oven because Nana never cooked the way most women did in the 1960s. I don’t have a single memory of our family gathering around her kitchen table for a holiday dinner or any other dinner. She had no dining room. My siblings and I often stayed with Nana for two or three days at a time, but I remember little about what we ate.

    To read the rest of the post and see a picture of Nana in front of her house: https://writingnearthelake.org/2023/01/17/bloganuary-post-for-january-16-do-you-have-a-memory-linked-to-a-smell/

  28. […] Do you have a memory that’s linked to a smell? When I smell cinnamon, or more specifically cinnamon rolls or cinnamon bread baking, I always think of my grandma. She lived with us for short period and I would often come home from school to the dough rising in a bowl on the kitchen counter. Now surely, that is not what gave off that smell but that is the image that comes to mind. […]
