A lot of people thought my career was over. If you’re not releasing records, then something must be wrong. Either the record company doesn’t like your music, or you’ve been dropped. It has to something negative. It’s not like you wanted to take a break, or want some balance, or smell the roses.

The key, I’ve found, are essential oils, which come in all kinds of 100% natural scents.
Beth Ditto
Females make better cooks than men. Females have a better palate. They have a better sense of smell. They never take shortcuts; this is why they’re very good in kitchens. The weakness in what they do is they are not as physically strong as men, so they’re never really given the opportunity.
Marco Pierre White
Wall Street sharks will go where they smell the blood, and you cannot change that.
Daniel Lubetzky

Suleika Jaouad
We used to have skunks that would go under our house and scratch their backs.

Ree Drummond
One of the great things about music is that it has the

One of the great things about music is that it has the capability of time travel – you smell a certain smell in the room and it takes you back to your childhood. I feel like music is able to do that, and it happens to me all the time.
M. Ward
The ideal job letter starts with a brilliant light. Then we realize that this brilliant light is actually sunlight, shafts of it, pouring through trees onto a thick bed of pine needles.

Rebecca Wells
Different people’s houses smell like different weird things. God forbid someone should come and nail down what my house smells like. It’d probably be a litter box… sweaty socks… and burnt bacon. That probably is what it smells like.

Guys, your home should never smell like artificial food: candy canes, gum drops, lemon bars. I mean, I will consume lemon bars in mass quantities, but I don’t want my house to smell like one.
Brooklyn Decker
A lot of men tend to mix a couple of fragrances and smell like a flower garden. Avoid!

Humans live a lot longer than dogs, and we don’t suffer any penalty that I can see. We’re superior in almost every way – they can smell better. But really, they can’t drive cars, they can’t do half the things we can. I don’t understand why you can’t live longer and be really fit.
Cynthia Kenyon
Well, even to this day, if I smell a Big Mac, I’m like Pavlov’s dog. My mouth starts watering immediately, like, ‘Man, that is so good,’ but I can’t take a bite of it.
Morgan Spurlock
Most of the time, I grill over high heat. I like things to move fast. I like the sound and smell of a very hot fire. I gravitate towards dishes that you can get on and off the grill as quickly as possible. After a while, you’ll know without thinking about it how hot the fire is.

Gene Simmons
To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions.
Hugh Jackman
I always believe that to be the best, you have to smell like the best, dress like the best, act like the best. When you throw your trash in the garbage can, it has to be better than anybody else who ever threw trash in the garbage can.

Love is poetry. To fall in love with a person is like understanding a deep, moving poem. Noticing every little detail. To see what the poet shows, to smell what he describes and the urge to taste the intangible.
Shweta Basu Prasad
One day Mum saved up for this exciting new thing – a frozen chicken. She cooked it on the Sunday and we all sat around waiting for it, but there was a terrible smell from the kitchen.

My new favourite smell is new baby smell. It makes me s

Smell is stimulating. It stirs things up and makes us nostalgic – a wonderful word which literally means ‘ache for home’ – which serves to inspire new circuits in the brain.
Lyall Watson
I like expensive-looking, nuanced, hour-long dramas that don’t smell like regular TV. That and cheap, funny shows that feel like one guy made them by himself. So … artisanal television?

I’m always a great student of writers’ work habits. Balzac sat at his desk dressed in a monk’s robe, and he always had to have a rotten apple on his desk. The smell of the apple inspired him somehow.
Frank McCourt
I grew up on a farm – I know the smell of horse manure. It does smell better than pig manure.

Grant Achatz
Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.
Bernie Siegel

Leadership is not a quantitative thing. People either smell it in you, or they don’t.
Sergio Marchionne
I loved Westerns for different reasons as an adult. It is not only our only native brand of storytelling – the only one that’s not influenced by Europeans and not something that’s done better by the French – but I also love the sensuality of the Western. The sights, sounds, and smell of a Western are very exciting.
Mary Steenburgen
The memories that I have are mostly at our old ranch, out in Agoura. We used to go out there every Saturday. I can smell the oak trees. I can see it so clearly.

Fran Drescher
Virtual simulations allow post-traumatic stress disorder sufferers to re-experience the events that traumatized them, and then slowly desensitize themselves to their impact through repeated recreations involving not just sight and sound but even smell.
Douglas Rushkoff
Smell was our first sense. It is even possible that being able to smell was the stimulus that took a primitive fish and turned a small lump of olfactory tissue on its nerve cord into a brain. We think because we smelled.
Lyall Watson
I will absolutely admit that the feel and smell of sea spray and wind on my face will be very welcome. I will be happy to come back to Earth, our beautiful planet, when it is time.

Chrishell Stause

Mads Mikkelsen
I love the smell of freshly cut grass. It takes me back to summers in Maine.

When you’re doing exactly what you want to do, it’s not tiring. You’ve been planting these seeds, and finally, you have a full garden in bloom; you’re like, ‘Oh, I just want to smell the flowers and play among the flowers all day.’ That’s what I’m doing. I’m playing among the flowers.
Colman Domingo
I’ve always been in love with the States. When I was a kid, we would take these long summer holidays in Texas, Nashville, and all over. I fell in love with the people, the food, even the smell. You don’t necessarily get that in old Europe.
Ed Weeks
My weirdest scent association is probably Axe Body Spray, because every boy I know wears that stuff, and the smell is so specific! And the loud noise when you spray it! My little brother used to wear it, and the whole house would reek of it for days.
Madison Beer
The smell of pine needles, spruce and the smell of a Christmas tree – those to me, are the scents of the holidays.
Blake Lively
I really do love being outdoors – I mean, you’d never think it in my high heels and pencil skirt! But I really do miss the smell of hay and farms, and I like milking a cow.
Christina Hendricks
I remember the ballads of the eighties when my mom was cleaning, sometimes I’d listen to, like, Amanda Miguel or something like that and I’ll smell the Fabulous.
Pedro Capo
I love a good goatee. I’m actually obsessed with goatees. I do like my men smooth, though. I like him to smell really good, so a great cologne is always hot.
Tia Mowry
I will always smell good.
Isaiah Mustafa
Enantiomers often smell and taste differently.
Ryoji Noyori
I’m really good at sleeping on planes. I mean, I smell jet fuel and I’m out; I’m asleep for takeoff.
Anthony Bourdain
I believe that there are many herbs and many trees that are worth much in Europe for dyes and for medicines; but I do not know, and this causes me great sorrow. Arriving at this cape, I found the smell of the trees and flowers so delicious that it seemed the pleasantest thing in the world.
Christopher Columbus
I always wear ladies’ scents. I like the smell of flowers and men’s scents tend to smell like burnt photocopiers.
Vic Reeves
I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
David Lynch
Why not share with the world the way it is and tell them my feelings about my cat, and how I played with my kids, and how addicted to Christmas time I am, and the smell of pine needles and hearing my kids laugh.
Steven Tyler
My first ride in an airplane was at nine years of age, and it was wonderful: the freedom, the smell of the exhaust, the air going over my hair… It was me. It was part of me.
Wally Funk
The best smell in the world is that man that you love.
Jennifer Aniston
Real hippies don't like me at all. They can smell a rea

Real hippies don’t like me at all. They can smell a real hippy.
Devendra Banhart
It may be that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,’ but I should be loath to see a rose on a maiden’s breast substituted by a flower, however beautiful and fragrant it might be, that is went by the name of the skunk lily.
Alexander Henry
I definitely take time to smell the flowers because I feel like my upbringing was quite a bit different than most guys on Tour.
Tony Finau
Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?
Friedrich Nietzsche
Westminster is a jungle – and the hunter can always smell fear on its prey.
Charles Kennedy
To each other, we were as normal and nice as the smell of bread. We were just a family. In a family even exaggerations make perfect sense.
John Irving
The thing that makes vivid writing is when the reader is in the body of the story, the body of the character. Things smell like something; there’s weather, there’s texture, there’s light.
Janet Fitch
Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.
Diane Ackerman
There are tons of women’s perfumes that I’ve smelt and been like, ‘I love that. I would totally wear that,’ and lots of women smell a lot of men’s cologne and think the same thing about that. I think there should be no reason to put gender on it.
Shawn Mendes
Cologne, you know, you gotta make sure you smell good all the time.
Pascal Siakam
I think that everything starts to go to hell when you start smelling your own farts and complimenting yourself on how great they smell. We’re not going to turn into fart-smellers.
D. B. Weiss
There are two things I love about Temescal. One is the sense of space that you get when you get to the top. You can see for ages. You can see the ocean spread out before you, but you also feel like you’re in the mountains. And second is the smell of it, which I love most when I’ve been traveling a long time.
Alison Sudol
I hate all electronic things that are supposed to help the human being. You don’t smell, you don’t hear, you don’t touch anymore.
Philippe Petit
Smell is a long-distance sense, a way of stretching time and finding out in advance what lies ahead.
Lyall Watson
People who wear fur smell like a wet dog if they’re in the rain. And they look fat and gross.
Pamela Anderson
I’m definitely of the ‘less is more’ mentality, and what I really appreciate is that fragrance is chemical, and it changes with your body throughout the day. It’s a very deeply personal thing. One smell on one person isn’t the same on another, and I appreciate the uniqueness of that experience.
Chris Pine
My wife used to tell me one of my best qualities was that my feet don’t smell, but I remember my brother’s did when we were kids.
Jack Prelutsky
I will pursue my passion of cooking every day until my hands fall off and I lose all sense of smell and taste.
Nicole Trunfio
I imagine a child. That child is me. I can reconstruct and vividly remember portions of my own childhood. I can see, taste, smell, feel, and hear them. Then what I do is, not write about that kid or about his world, but start to think of a book that would have pleased him.
Daniel Pinkwater
Sometimes, poor people don’t smell too good, so love can have no nose.
Tammy Faye Bakker
I have to have aftershave in my car. I actually have Gucci aftershave in the glove box that is just for the car, to make it smell nice.
Lee Ryan
The only thing… in-store retailing has that online doesn’t have is it has the ability to touch, smell, feel, and experience.
Alan Patricof
My boarding school experience was the only thing I had strong enough feelings to write about for hundreds and hundreds of pages. I can still smell the formaldehyde of the fetal pigs in biology.
Curtis Sittenfeld
Experience teaches that when the will and imagination are in conflict, the imagination usually wins. What we imagine may defeat our reason and make us slaves to what we taste, see, hear, smell, and feel in the mind’s eye. The body is indeed the servant of the mind.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
One thing I always make – and I’m sure this is partly to do with memory and yearning and because I’ve made it ever since my children were born – I make gingerbread every year. And it’s partly just the perfume of the spices in the house, makes it smell like winter to me.
Bee Wilson
With food, you’re the artist; you put the colour in it, you present it to the table and it has the ability to knock out the senses. It can look fabulous, be beautifully presented and smell great and taste good as well.
Anthony Warlow
You know what I love the smell of? Christmas trees and pine. I always have a pine candle even if it’s not Christmas.
Brooklyn Decker
If I smell a burger stand I get nervous. It takes me back to BMX tracks as a kid.
Chris Hoy
I love the smell of juice boxes in the morning.
Robert Duvall
Although I don’t know Oslo at all, there is something about the feel or the smell of the place that feels like home, which is quite interesting.
Alexander Hanson
My style can’t be held within a pixel medium. Like, it needs to be performed in a living, breathing space. People need to have all their senses ready to take on my comedy, and unfortunately, TV alienates at least their sense of touch, taste, smell.
Kristen Schaal
I love the smell of a real Christmas tree - also, my mu

I love the smell of a real Christmas tree – also, my mum’s Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.
Mallory Jansen
Children teach you to stop and smell the roses even though you’re busier than you’ve ever been before.
Ainsley Earhardt
Space has its own unique smell. So whenever a vehicle docks, or if guys are out doing a spacewalk, the smell of space when you open up the hatch is very distinct. It’s kind of like a burning-metal smell, if you can imagine what that would smell like.
Scott Kelly
My father took me to see Hank Williams on December 14th, 1952. I was two years and four months of age. And I remember a little cool eddy of hair hitting my cheek, and I remember the smell of his hair oil, and I remember the mingling tonality of the small talk before the show started. Those are my memories.
Rodney Crowell
I mention this fact as tending to support what I have often heard stated, namely, that a shark’s sense of smell is so keen that, if men ever bathe in seas where they are found, a shark is almost sure to appear directly afterwards.
George Grey
CDs, too. Totally corporate. They look real cheap and soulless and they don’t smell of anything.
Evan Dando
The action films I will make in the future will be more believable and character-based. I am now on my second cycle of fame, and I want to make films that smell real and are truthful.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
I’ve got an incredibly acute sense of smell, like a bloodhound. My wife borrows perfumes off me. I play the bass, too.
Vic Reeves
I’m kind of a crazy person about hand sanitizer. I carry the plain ones that smell like aloe, from Target or CVS.
Odette Annable
I have smelled some very famous and undoubtedly sexy boys. And sometimes, as cute as they are, I’d rather have them as a friend – just because of the way they smell!
Rachel Nichols
You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
Walter Hagen
To die is as if one’s eyes had been put out and one cannot see anything any more. Perhaps it is like being shut in a cellar. One is abandoned by all. They have slammed the door and are gone. One does not see anything and notices only the damp smell of putrefaction.
Edvard Munch
I love the smell of skunks. Driving down a back road and you smell a skunk that’s sprayed or been hit. I love that. It reminds me of home.
Dustin Lynch
Men directors somehow think it’s great to show heroes all unkempt and ungroomed. You’d be able to smell the hero’s aftershave lotion if a woman directed him.
Suhasini Maniratnam
I’m a total petrolhead. My three brothers and I used to ride scrambling bikes in the field near where we lived. We all liked cars. I’ve always loved the smell of an engine.
Jennifer Saunders
I often read nonfiction with a pencil in hand. I love the feel, the smell, the design, the weight of a book, but I also enjoy the convenience of my Kindle – for travel and for procuring a book in seconds.
Drew Gilpin Faust
I seem to smell the stench of appeasement in the air.
Margaret Thatcher
I don’t like those artificial air fresheners. They just smell so fake. It’s too much.
Alexander Skarsgard
The writing I love has something memorable in it – an image, a smell. It’s the connection between the moment and the whole concept, weaving the micro together with the macro so that it has a hold on people – that’s writing.
Atul Gawande
I love my garlic press; in fact, it is probably my one true desert island gadget. But I’m happy to put it aside whenever the smell and sweet taste of slow-cooked garlic is called for.
Yotam Ottolenghi
A book has got smell. A new book smells great. An old book smells even better. An old book smells like ancient Egypt.
Ray Bradbury
The Chanel woman? I don’t even need to see; I smell her from round the corner.
Raf Simons
I happen to be a pessimist, and maybe that’s a good thing because I don’t stop to smell the roses – which is not a good personal thing. I don’t stop and enjoy those moments… Always on to the next and never in the moment.
Nicki Minaj
Girls will probably – if she’s a lady – never do the No. 2 around you. If they’re not a lady, she might poo. You might ask her, ‘What’s that smell?’ And she’ll be like ‘I don’t know!’ But it really might be her. Because it happens.
Hobbies take place in the cellar and smell of airplane glue.
John Updike
I think controversy is not always a bad thing. Jesus was controversial. It’s through controversy that people often wake up and smell the coffee and say, ‘What’s going on here? Do we need to rethink something here?’
Kirk Cameron
Any woman I know can smell a boyfriend a mile away. Women are intuitive: they know when a guy is interested but he’s not going to be there for her in that boyfriend-y way.
Julie Klausner
Feelings are like chemicals, the more you analyze them the worse they smell.
Charles Kingsley
I love the smell of frying liver. It kind of releases a sweetness into the air, and it kind of prickles your nose, and it kind of makes you awake… it gets me excited.
April Bloomfield
I got such a bad series of sinus infections while covering President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, I lost my sense of smell!
Kristen Welker
There’s so much to appreciate about my life every single day, and I make a big point of taking time to smell the roses and noticing how lucky I am. I never want to take that for granted.
Josie Maran
I like fresh and clean. I don't ever want anyone to sme

I like fresh and clean. I don’t ever want anyone to smell me and say, ‘Oh that guy is wearing a lot of cologne.’ I want people to smell me and say, ‘You smell really good!’ I think there is a difference.
Eric Stonestreet
What we need to do is open our eyes, smell the coffee and just understand what the society has become. Today, I can discuss many things with my 15-year-old son which I could not talk about with my father.
Anubhav Sinha
I didn’t go to many movies. My mom would make a family outing and bring chicken in the theater. Smell up the whole place. The most impactful movies were ‘Godfather II’ and ‘Scarface’. I loved the human complexity, and those movies are so well shot. Cinematic greatness. I really stopped going in my early twenties.
My daughter Lila loves the smell of gasoline – she always says, ‘Mummy, keep the door open,’ when I’m filling up the car. I’ve heard it is one of the most preferred scents in the world – maybe that’s something to study for my next fragrance!
Kate Moss
It is kind of cliche to say you like a man to smell like a man, but I really do. My husband can go three or four days without taking a shower and the man never smells.
Natasha Henstridge
The smell of shrimp is comforting.
Lennon Parham
When I was a kid, when I was first getting excited about the opposite sex, fragrance was the thing. If you look good, you smell good, and you feel good.
Luke Rockhold
The quality of the Neues Museum’s construction is extraordinary even by German standards, and people can smell that quality. The concept would not have been so convincing without it.
David Chipperfield
My pregnancy craving is truffles. I like the smell and I like the way it tastes but they’re very very expensive, rare mushrooms.
Maryse Mizanin
I’ve been hitting up Hooters since 1983, and I can assure you nothin’ says football season is here quite like watching the game on wall-to-wall flat screen TVs with the smell of Hooters world-famous chicken wings in the air and an ice-cold beer in your hand, served up with one-and-only Hooters hospitality, of course.
Jon Gruden
I remember when I grew up and Dad would take me to kindergarten in the morning, and you could smell the chips in the air from the factory nearby.
Jens Lekman
My signature fragrance would be herbal – basil mixed with rosemary and coriander. Some big stars have got perfume lines that smell really bad. They’ve got it all wrong.
Valerie June
When you go for first date, you are so conscious about what you are wearing, how you smell, how much money you have in your wallet. You have to plan the day – you have to plan the traffic – but in a relationship, you take all the things for granted.
Vivek Oberoi
The one thing that holds people back from working out together is that they don’t want to smell around other people. Your olfactory sense is the primary sense in your memory, and you don’t want to be part of anyone’s memory thinking that you smell bad.
Dhani Jones
I was frustrated as a child when I had to use a vacuum. It had a screaming noise and the smell of stale dog and a lack of performance.
James Dyson
In an enclosed space, a camel’s breath can change the atmosphere of the room. Not only just the smell, they literally seem to change the atmospheric pressure. It’s so disgusting. It’s like they have eight stomachs each more rancid then the next and it just comes out of their mouth.
Steve Carell
My father, Abe, was a small businessman. For 32 years, he ran an exterminating company. That may explain why our family always associated the smell of roach spray with love.
Chuck Schumer
When you turn from one room to the next, when your animal senses no longer perceive the sounds of the dishwasher, the ticking clock, the smell of a chicken roasting – the kitchen and all its seemingly discrete bits dissolve into nothingness – or into waves of probability.
Robert Lanza
How do you project a character if you don’t have a sense of where she is from? I’ve always just gotten on a plane to go to the area to get a sense of what it is like, to smell it, feel the earth, hear people talk, go to the marketplaces.
Cicely Tyson
I don’t use deodorant. If you drink enough water, you shouldn’t have to. I think I smell pretty good without it.
Simon Baker
The sense of smell explores; deleterious substances almost always have an unpleasant smell.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Lord Ashcroft’s 2005 report ‘Smell the Coffee’ made uncomfortable reading for the Conservatives.
Nicky Morgan
I love to be scared. Not, ‘Hey, I think I smell smoke…’ scared, but creepy, paranoid, what’s-that-out-there-in-the-dark, ghost story scared. It’s no surprise that I was the girl who got invited to the slumber parties because I could be counted on to tell a tale to scare the bejesus out of you.
Libba Bray
Sometimes a certain project will have a smell… It will have a little stench about it. That is a warning signal. You know it’s going to be a nightmare. You know they are not going to like it, and it’s not worth it.
Mike Patton
This league is about trying to smell where the weakness is.
Jermaine O’Neal
My dad was very, very invested in image. He felt that as a black person, the thing you could control was how did you look, how did you dress, how did you sound, how did you smell, how did you act. All of that stuff that you could control would absolutely have a strong impact on your access.
Courtney A. Kemp
What I do regret is working too hard sometimes instead of really enjoying my youth. I’m trying to make an effort to stop and smell the roses now.
Ser’Darius Blain
For weeks after 9/11 you could smell the dust and pulverised concrete in New York, and the National Guard came in, so there was a military presence on the streets. It was intense. Overwhelming. Heartbreaking.
Mark Boal
If men have a smell it’s usually an accident.
Jeff Foxworthy
I do have my own washing machine, but I do miss going to the laundromat. I love the smell of fabric softener.
Cynthia Erivo
My first experience of doing martial arts was weird, real traditional, strange smell with incense burning. We did a lot of bowing, it was a lot of path of least resistance and go with the flow… Really good stuff for when you’re at a young age.
Nick Diaz
Dogs are mute and obedient, but they have watched us an

Dogs are mute and obedient, but they have watched us and know us and can smell how pitiful we are.
Tove Jansson
I’ve played in successful sides, and you smell it. When dinner finishes at 7:45 P.M., and you’re playing in an unsuccessful side, everyone goes up to their own room.
Phil Neville
Elephants are very sensitive to smell and they tend to recognise us by our body odour.
Thalaivasal Vijay
As far as performance, the roar of the crowd, the smell of the greasepaint no I don’t feel that.
Peter Garrett
My favorite animal to hunt is probably elk. There’s nothing like the sound of a bugling bull splitting the cold air at first light. And that smell is unmistakable. Once you experience their musk in the wild there’s no going back! A close second would be a varmint hunt.
Chris Pratt
My son smelled like a cinnamon bun, and that smell entered into my biological being, and it became an imperative that I keep him alive at all costs, so then there’s this monster – this tiger or lion – that comes forward in you to protect them. And it doesn’t stop. It doesn’t matter if they become men or women.
Frances McDormand
Just because someone’s dead doesn’t mean it’s over. My grandfather died more than 25 years ago, but I still think of him a lot and smell his smell.
Julian Clary
I like the smell of film. I just like knowing there’s film going through the camera.
Steven Spielberg
The studios will go wherever they smell money. It’s like sharks to the blood.
Don Bluth
The richness of the world, all artificial pleasures, have the taste of sickness and give off a smell of death in the face of certain spiritual possessions.
Georges Rouault
I do love when men wear cologne – if I get a hint of it, I want to move closer so I can smell it more.
Evan Rachel Wood
Readers want to visualize your story as they read it. The more exact words you give them, the more clearly they see it, smell it, hear it, taste it. Thus, a dog should be an ‘Airedale,’ not just a ‘dog.’ A taste should not be merely ‘good’ but ‘creamy and sweet’ or ‘sharply salty’ or ‘buttery on the tongue.’
Nancy Kress
I’ve had a black guy call me a honky, and I’ve also been told that white people smell like bologna.
Brooke Hogan
I love paint. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
David Lynch
I like to dress well, I like to look good, I like to smell good.
When you go into a person’s house, and you smell that wash of cat smell, it’s the human’s fault, not the cat’s. Cats want everything to be clean around them. They want where they live to be clean, they clean themselves, they want a clean litter box.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
Observe, record, tabulate, communicate. Use your five senses. Learn to see, learn to hear, learn to feel, learn to smell, and know that by practice alone you can become expert.
William Osler
My grandmother had a Ph.D in library science, so I grew up in a library, and I would appreciate those books and the smell of them and how they’d have these series, and it was cool to me. I always felt like, if I had an opportunity, I’d create an album that felt like a series.
Dawn Richard
Paris works so hard. I always say, ‘Paris, you also have to stop now and again and smell the roses.’
Kathy Hilton
I like the way my own feet smell. I love to smell my sneakers when I take them off.
Christina Ricci
My favourite smell is bleach. If I walk into the house and there’s things being bleached, it just makes me feel at home, euphoric almost.
Nadine Coyle
But Tottenham is pure football and pure people… nice, warm people. That’s why I like Tottenham. And everybody who comes to the stadium can smell the history.
Rafael van der Vaart
The smell of onion is the most effective thing for relieving stinging eyes irritated by tear gas.
Sayed Kashua
I think that animals aren’t less intelligent than humans, they’re just of a different intelligence. We have five million smell-sensitive cells in our nose, they have two hundred and fifty million – they can smell emotion. They can smell different types of emotion, they just have another type of intelligence.
Mike Mills
I love unisex perfumes because men don’t realize they’re attracted to the way that other men smell. I’m like, ‘I smell like a dude right now, and you don’t even know!’
Madison Beer
I can’t stand the smell of beer.
Laila Rouass
Before every show, I have to put perfume on. I know the crowd’s not necessarily going to smell me, but when I smell good, I feel like I can dominate the room.
Rita Ora
I wouldn’t want to get involved with a game that’s a stinker – I can smell one of those a mile away.
Flying Lotus
I love breakfast! Not only is it the most important meal of the day, but I loved waking up to – the smell of bacon in the morning was my favorite thing as a kid!
Rachel Hollis
If you’re walking down the street and you smell a scent, it can take you right back to a memorable time in your life, whether it’s a moment with an ex-girlfriend or a childhood event.
Chris Evans
Grills are how to achieve a great flavor on meats and vegetables. They bring people together. The smell of them getting started is therapeutic.
Chuck Inglish
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There

Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.
W. Somerset Maugham
Goats are really cute, especially little ones. But they do smell a little bit.
Jacob Tremblay
I love using Moroccan Oil. It makes my hair feel great and I love the smell.
Eva Marie
I love the smell of a man’s skin.
J. Courtney Sullivan
Smell is incredibly important and sensual; it communicates who you are.
Sean Combs
Since dogs could hear and smell better than men, we could concentrate on sight. Since courage is commonplace in dogs, men’s adrenal glands could shrink. Dogs, by making us more efficient predators, gave us time to think. In short, dogs civilized us.
Donald McCaig
A barn with cattle and horses is the place to begin Christmas; after all, that’s where the original event happened, and that same smell was the first air that the Christ Child breathed.
Paul Engle
I don’t really like hospitals that much. People are sick; sometimes it can be depressing. There’s people going through a lot of pain in there. It has that funny smell.
Mekhi Phifer
Taking walks sometimes bring back memories of my childhood because a smell might trigger a memory.
King Diamond
I think you can tell the difference between ‘swagger’ and real confidence immediately. You can smell it, like bad body spray versus nice cologne.
Stephanie Beatriz
I didn’t want a ghost writer. I’ve got such a distinctive voice, people would smell a rat, I think.
Alan Carr
The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
The goals are not about the sweet smell of success as much as it’s about enjoying a damn day on the movie set… I live in a complete state of grace.
Peter Weller
This is what I grew up on in Alsace. It’s choucroute. I’d wake up every morning with the smell of cabbage and potatoes and pork.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Unlike the primate hand, the elephant’s grasping organ is also its nose. Elephants use their trunks not only to reach food but also to sniff and touch it. With their unparalleled sense of smell, the animals know exactly what they are going for. Vision is secondary.
Frans de Waal
Only the actions of the just, Smell sweet and blossom in their dust.
James Shirley
If you smell good, you feel good, and your day’s fabulous.
La La Anthony
The way I’m portrayed on the Internet is partly my doing, but it’s partly the people that are presenting it so, you know, people come to know this strange version of a human. It can be pretty weird because people think I’m digging through dumpsters and smell like crap all the time.
Mac DeMarco
Libertarians believe that any government interference is bad. Anyone with a brain knows that climate change needs governmental leadership, and they can smell this is bad news for their philosophy. Their ideology is so strongly held that, remarkably, it’s overcoming the facts.
Jeremy Grantham
The ancient media of speech and song and theater were radically reshaped by writing, though they were never entirely supplanted, a comfort perhaps to those of us who still thrill to the smell of a library.
Alison Gopnik
The feeling between two fighters is profound. We go places where normal people don’t go. You smell a man’s blood, it smells like rust. You get into a clench, you feel his strength, you feel his desperation, he feels yours. You’re sharing this.
Chris Eubank Sr.
Now people who keep fish disturb me the most, if I’m totally honest. They always smell a bit like fish food and they know just a bit too much about eels.
Claudia Winkleman
How real can your music be if you wake up in the morning hearing birds and crickets? I never hear birds when I wake up. Just a lot of construction work, the smell of Chinese takeout, children screaming, and everybody knocking a different track from ‘Ready to Die’ as they pass down the street.
The Notorious B.I.G.
I used to love those little cute bottles of amenities in the hotel room. And while the soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion may smell great, they waste an incredible amount of plastic and space in your luggage.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
I use these senses – touch, sight, feel and smell – as triggers that invite readers or propel them into the scene. The trick is not to make it obvious. I’ve written an entire chapter about this in my book, ‘The Successful Novelist.’ I’ve lectured about it extensively, but have yet to see many people pick up on it.
David Morrell
The most evocative food smell is American seaside food – tuna melts and cookie dough ice cream, or the British version, fish and chips and toffee apples.
Sophie Dahl
I took the longest showers of my life after every time I visited Gramacho. It affects the personality of the catadores. They always dress really well, they’re very sharp, and when they go out they always wear a lot of perfume because they’re very conscious of the possibility of having the smell.
Vik Muniz
I look like a winner, I smell like a winner, so why not put it on the big screen?
Jake Hager
Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire – you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
Denis Waitley
I love to smell like roses, literally all day!
Rachel Roy
In bitter almond oil, like in a great number of other substances that previously had been counted among the ‘aromatic compounds’ on behalf of their strong smell, a derivative of benzene is present. The special properties of benzene and its derivatives are caused by the typical arrangement of their carbon atoms.
Otto Wallach
My grandmother would start making her meat sauce at 7 i

My grandmother would start making her meat sauce at 7 in the morning on Sunday, and within five or six hours, that smell would be all through the house.
Jerry Della Femina
There was this sausage factory a block away from my childhood apartment. It didn’t smell nice, like chorizo or something; it was pretty foul. Just nasty. But that smell reminds me so much of my childhood because every morning when I was going to school, I would smell that.
Alexander Skarsgard
It was so exciting to go to the record shop and buy a piece of vinyl and hold it, read the liner notes, look at the pictures. Even the smell of the vinyl.
Martin Gore
If I really like the smell of something – a piece of tar or my goddaughter’s plastic doll – I put a tiny piece in a bottle with a label. I keep them in a fridge in my bathroom.
Wilshire Boulevard… It has no smell to it.
Jean Renoir
I visited the Pentagon a few days after September 11, and I still remember so vividly the smell of terror surrounding the entire building and complex. I was angry that such a brutal act of violence was committed against innocent people.
Randy Forbes
Try not thinking of peeling an orange. Try not imagining the juice running down your fingers, the soft inner part of the peel. The smell. Try and you can’t. The brain doesn’t process negatives.
Douglas Coupland
Now, space has its own unique smell. So whenever a vehicle docks, or if guys are out doing a spacewalk, the smell of space when you open up the hatch is very distinct. It’s kind of like a burning-metal smell, if you can imagine what that would smell like.
Scott Kelly
If you’re a wounded company, the other companies that have been around for a hundred years will smell it, and they will take advantage of you in a heartbeat. It takes a long time to get back in fighting form.
Douglas Conant
When a baby comes you can smell two things: the smell of flesh, which smells like chicken soup, and the smell of lilies, the flower of another garden, the spiritual garden.
Carlos Santana
I was shocked to find that there were actually climate scientists who wouldn’t share the raw data, but would only share their conclusions in summary graphs that were used to prove their various theories about planet warming. In fact I began to smell something really bad, and the worse that smell got, the deeper I looked.
Burt Rutan
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
Ashley Smith
I danced six hours a day. My cross to bear is that my children have no interest in ballet. I think they could smell how much I wanted to put their hair in a bun.
Jennifer Garner
I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director. So most of my songs come in a play form, you know, where there are characters and stories, so I like to go beyond just the song sometimes.
R. Kelly
What they smell isn’t the emotion of fear. What dogs can smell is the changes in a person’s skin that suggest fear to the dog, anxiety, the way your skin sweats, the amount of uric acid that suddenly pours out of your pores.
Robert Crais
Criminals usually prey on weakness. They can smell it.
Steven Seagal
Right when I finish a workout, I feel pretty sexy. Even though I’m sweaty and I don’t smell like a rose, I feel strong. It does a lot for me mentally and physically.
Sarah Shahi
I think sighted people let their eyes cheat them out of certain things. People who can see don’t have a great sense of smell because they don’t use it.
Jose Feliciano
I love roses and I love the smell of them in my room.
Taste is one of the five senses, and the man who tells us with priggish pride that he does not care what he eats is merely boasting of his sad deficiency: he might as well be proud of being deaf or blind, or, owing to a perpetual cold in the head, of being devoid of the sense of smell.
E. F. Benson
There’s nothing like the smell of grilling flesh.
Liv Tyler
The smell of fuel, driving on the limit on the edge of sliding, it just gives you a lot of adrenaline.
Max Verstappen
I love the scents of winter! For me, it’s all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce.
Taylor Swift
I can smell bacon sizzling or chicken roasting and appreciate the aroma, but I don’t want to eat it.
Ella Woodward
There is a peculiar burning odor in the room, like explosives. the kitchen fills with smoke and the hot, sweet, ashy smell of scorched cookies. The war has begun.
Alison Lurie
In ‘A Bone in the Throat,’ he describes his protagonist and alter ego, the cook Tommy Pagano, as ‘darker, and not as tall as the chef, his hair stood up straight and spiky like a young Trotsky’s.’ He describes Little Italy with such verve, such flavor, that it is impossible not to smell the streets or taste the food.
Sarah Weinman
It’s amazing the things that you cry at. I cry when I smell my son’s hair in the morning. We have a moment of peace and I’ll be like, ‘Ahhhh! How can you love this much?’
Lena Headey
I love the smell of the Earth. I’m a good cook my friends say. I love cooking for my friends. So I’m totally the opposite of being evil. I think only if you’re a good person can you be very evil onscreen.
Udo Kier
Many pilots of the time were the opinion that a fighter pilot in a closed cockpit was an impossible thing, because you should smell the enemy. You could smell them because of the oil they were burning.
Adolf Galland
The sense of smell in all dogs is their primary doorway to the world around them.
Robert Crais
I don’t spend my time on farms. I don’t like the smell, to be honest.
Doja Cat
I grew up to the smell of doughnuts, scones, pies, and

I grew up to the smell of doughnuts, scones, pies, and bread.
Paul Hollywood
Everyone is obsessed with air fresheners. We associate smell with disgust. But we’re all locked into the body; we can’t escape it.
Glen Duncan
When a herd of cattle see a strange object, they are not satisfied till each one has sniffed it; and the horse is cured of his fright at the robe, or the meal-bag, or other object, as soon as he can be induced to smell it. There is a great deal of speculation in the eye of an animal, but very little science.
John Burroughs
My studio is not arty. It doesn’t smell of turpentine, and I’m not knee-high in paper.
Robert Ingpen
Smell is so powerful, you know. My grannies would both bake things like shortbreads and cookies. I think whenever I smell those kinds of things it really takes me back to my childhood.
Curtis Stone
Keep it simple. Tell the truth. People can smell the truth.
Steve Wynn
The only things that smell good are fat and sugar. Tofu being boiled doesn’t smell good. Anything that smells good is fattening.
John Madden
I used to go to Sheen High Street with my dad on a Saturday, and there was a butcher next door to the fishmonger. I hated the smell of the fishmonger, but I found the smell of the butcher’s much more appealing. And I liked the big knives. I thought it looked like a decent job.
Rory Kinnear
If summer had one defining scent, it’d definitely be the smell of barbecue.
Katie Lee
My favourite smell is horses. In fact, most of the time, I do smell like horses.
Edie Campbell
One of the things that you’re not really in control of – apart from everything – is your smell.
Julian Fellowes
In Hollywood we acquire the finest novels in order to smell the leather bindings.
Ernst Lubitsch
I wanted to create a line for women and men alike that would encourage them to embrace the harmony and divine balance of sensuality and spirituality within all of us. Forplai is an opportunity to not only smell good and feel good, but to also take time to connect with the heavens above and the god in you.
Lamman Rucker
The sanitary and mechanical age we are now entering makes up for the mercy it grants to our sense of smell by the ferocity with which it assails our sense of hearing.
Havelock Ellis
Sometimes smell can take you back to places.
Aditya Roy Kapur
On your journey, don’t forget to smell the flowers. Take time out to notice that you’re alive. You can only live in one day.
Ray Fearon
Every job is good if you do your best and work hard. A man who works hard stinks only to the ones that have nothing to do but smell.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Can anyone remember love? It’s like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.
Arthur Miller
I’m the opposite of someone like David Grossman, who knows how his characters walk, and how they smell. I don’t allow myself to imagine what mine look like at all. My sense of them comes from the inside. They remain, by necessity, physically vague in my mind.
Nicole Krauss
When I smell pho, I just automatically think of my mom. All these nostalgic feelings and memories come rushing through my head.
Michelle Phan
I want my home to look good, feel good, and smell good. I want it to be inclusive, to reflect the people who live there.
Cindy Crawford
I think passion in a physical way goes hand in hand with taste and smell.
Ella Purnell
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
William Shakespeare
I’m so in love with the United States. Not as a patriot. I’m in love with America like it’s my first girlfriend. The geography, the people, the smell, the touch, the taste, the gas stations. I’m madly in love with America.
Vincent Gallo
In terms of brands, I generally try to stick with EDITION Hotels or Soho House. That way, I know what I’m getting myself into. Plus, the lobbies and bath soaps smell the same – if you’re into that kinda thing, which I am.
I judge people on how they smell, not how they look.
Jennifer Lopez
I can smell trouble miles away.
Kathy Burke
