Recently, I was reflecting on the "smell of home". When I walk in my parents door I smell either home cooked meals or my moms home made soaps.
In Grand Marais, especially in autumn, when I enter Garry and Renee's house, I smell the pleasing aroma of birch from their wood burning fireplace.
These smells comfort me and "welcome me home" in a sense.
I find that the fall is the time of year when this happens most often.
What are smells that remind you of home or bring you back to a time and place?
