what are your favorite scents?

Peoplewatashi asked this question in her lj, and i'm doing the same:

what are your favorite scents?

for soap, bath item: fresh lavender is my favorite scent, even if it's found in soap, bath items;

the same for tea tree ... and it's awesome for a hand lotion;

for candles: bayberry, because it reminds me of my childhood. mom used to burn bayberry candles all the time;

incense: special temple blend by Mystic Temple Incense. not too much. gotta burn a little bit of the incense stick at one time;

air fresheners: not really into air fresheners, 'cause there is a tendency to make them too strong and/or the scents are chemically made. allergies go nuts;

other scents: musk, which men usually wear;

another scent that i enjoy as long as it's not too strong -- more for the childhood memories -- is skunk. odd, yes? i've heard. yet, i've also had others confess they like it, too.

for soaps, bath items and candles I like vanilla or peach.

When a groups from our church went to Germany a few years ago I took a calendar with pictures of American quilts for the quilting group. One of the women gave me a quilted sachet with lavender leaves in it as a return gift. The aroma always reminds me of those friends.

I like distant skunk smell.

far enough away that you can't smell it?

My favorite scent is cardamom. I'm eager to include cardamom (after the usual treatment in my mortar and pestle) in my coffee (and sometimes tea), as well as any sweet baked goods.

I have some lavender essential oil, too. I tend to shake a drop or two in my bedroom before Megh visits. We like it.
