I just know that the end of summer is near, and that always makes me think back on what I like best about my favorite season. And while summer is great because of all the things you have free time to do, it also is lots of fun for your senses. So here is a list of my favorite summer smells.
Rain on Hot Asphalt
It's hot, it's humid, the sky is starting to cloud. Finally, when you can hardly stand the weather anymore, the heat breaks and the rain comes pouring down, practically steaming on the hot asphalt.
Someone's Else's BBQ
I don't know what it is, but smelling something that someone else is bbq-ing always smells so much more appetizing than whatever you happen to throw on the grill. Not that what you grill isn't delicious, but walking by someone else's grill is always a little better. I think its the same rule that dictates that someone else's Coke is always tastier, colder, and less flat; the whole grass is greener argument.
Freshly Cut Grass
And speaking of grass, I know this is super cliche`, but it is for a reason:
freshly cut grass smells amazing! And it's so green and pretty!
Fresh summer produce - especially fruit - is one of my favorite parts of summer. Especially the sweet, succulent smells that wafts off of peaches, nectarines and apricots. Yum
Minty Limey Mojitos
Nothing better for cooling off after a long, hot summer day than a fresh-squeezed mojito with plenty of fresh mint and crushed ice. And the citrus mint smells so good!
