    I love the smell of bread baking, onions frying, fresh coffee, and Ruby!

    I hate the smell of bananas, rubbish bins, and a particular plant that smells of fish, not sure what it's called, but there are lots of them around where I live. UGH

    When I was pregnant I hated any kind of greasy smell, like bacon, and I had to pass a cornish pasty shop on my way to work, I used to walk the long way to avoid it, yuk
