Friday Question #87

raining popcornIf rain could fall in any scent, what scent would you want it to be?

How about… buttered popcorn?! What can I say, I guess I’ve woken up in a silly mood today.

We had a lot of rain in the Chicagoland area in October. I’ll admit, I’ve said the dreaded, “I wish it would just snow already,” a few times. There are only so many times you can sit on the train ride home with shoes soaked through to your socks, and not be a little bit annoyed.

    I agree with Tori, but if rain could smell like the ocean, that would be cool too. 🙂

    I’m trying to think of a scent that wouldn’t annoy me after the third day of rain in a row. Maybe evergreen trees?

    Nooooo no snow yet!! I’m going to redirect you to this post in January! I’m not ready for snow, even if my Philly winter won’t be quite like a Chicago winter. (I hope…)

    The smell of homemade cookies for rain, perhaps? Although then I would want to eat them all the time…

  7. I had several answers come to mind: I like the smell of rain, the ocean or I think I’d get bored of the same smell. But the I noticed first few people to comment gave those answers, so I’m going with my fourth option, the world (could) would be happier option…

    What if the smell changed every day?!?

    I’ll elaborate more on this at

  8. You are very weird today, I like it.

    I think vanilla, because I wouldn’t mind smelling like that if I got wet.

    I’ve been thinking the same thing about Snow > Rain. I hate rain, it gets your pant legs all wet!

    Hm…if rain could fall into a scent? Maybe lavender. I really like that one. I think if I chose a food one, it would make me hungry all the time.

    Is “spa” a smell? Every time I go in for a facial I always think “i wish my house smelled like this”. If rain smelled like that, it would be pretty OK too 😉

    Oh, wow…I LOVE this question. I’m such a “smell” person! It has a big effect on my moods.

    I would say Cinnamon/Apples…I don’t think I could ever, ever get tired of that smell.

    That’s an easy one for me… the ocean and the beach… the sand… all of those smells mixed together.
