I love lavender. The color. The scent. I have it growing in huge bunches outside my front door. It makes me smile every time I enter my house. What is your favorite scent??

This is a great shot, Kacey! Love the black of the background against the spikes of the plant.
I don’t have a favorite scent, but I love the smell of wild roses, honeysuckle and fresh cut grass. I’ve also been known to smell the cilantro at the grocery store. :oops:

Have a great Sunday.

Wonderful image, Kacey :love: I can smell it from here! I love the smell of vanilla, lavender, and lilac.

I love lavender, too. I also love the smell of pumpkin candles, freshly extinguished candles, and gardenias.

I love lavender, too. I keep lavender essential oil at all times. I put a drop or two in the spray bottle I use to dampen clothes I’m about to iron. Sometimes I spray MYSELF with the same bottle! If I’m having trouble gong to sleep, I put a few drops on my pillowcase.If I’ve got a stubborn spot on my face, a dab of lavender essential oil will clear it right up. this is in addition to the fact that it smells like heaven. I hope I get a chance to see the lavender fields of France one day.

Oh, and lilacs…I love lilacs’ aroma.

And I love the scent of lavender but for some reason it give me a splitting headache. Pooh! :sad:

I love lavender too! And peppermint. And the scent of newly mowed grass. And vanilla. And cinnamon.

Actually, lavender is my favorite! I had 6 large plants beside my back patio. Alas, thay have all died off, one by one. I’ve not found any to replace them yet. :cry:

I adore your pic, and lavender as well!! My favorite scent (besides the scent of a freshly made martini) is probably the smell of liquid downy – when my clothes have just been washed and I am folding them. I love the smell of fresh linen. huh.

Lovely photo! I love the smell of a pine forest in the summer, when the heat is helping release the scent of sap from the trees.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love lavender. I have a large tub of it growing near the gazebo where I do my work & reading. It’s a tough life, but someone has got to live it! I also enjoy the fragrant lemon balm when it is crushed, or mowed in my garden. Even my son commented on how good it smells while he mowed down a path of weeds (and lemon balm) for me.

I have sooooo many favorites…jasmine, gardenia, freshly mowed alflafa, the smell of earth after a rain, the ocean, Banana Boat sun tan lotion, clean laundry, cilantro, puppy breath, pine forest, cedar, magnolias, and yes, lavendar. If only I could bottle them up…

Lilac….yes, it’s lilac. Hands down, lilac. Which is, by the way, the only thing I miss about Chicago, well, Uno’s pizza and jay’s potatoe chips.

Lavender and roses – my two favorite scents. In my china cabinet are bowls full of rose petals and lavender leaves from years of bouquets and flowers from my garden. The innards of the cabinet? Smell like honey. I love it!

Beautiful! I always wanted to grow lavender, but never could succeed. Honeysuckle & roses! that’s my favorite. The two together (when I was a kid, that’s what we had growing by the porch).
