Top 5 Smells Of Your Childhood


Have you walked into a store, or picked something up, and just the distinct scent is enough to take you back to a time and place in your past? The'scent'is enough to trigger a trip down nostalgia. Like, opening up brand new toy from it's box.

For me, when I smell Tom Ford's "Black Orchid" perfume, it reminds me of when I go to a event. Whether it'd be a comic con, or going to an arena. Random isn't it? Even when I smell or chew mint gum, it right away makes me think of being on an airplane. I associate mint gum with airports and travelling.

To some, the smell of Blockbuster might not trigger the smell, but the smell of popcorn, candy, and plastic immediately comes to mind.

I've made a list of things that a nostalgic and memorable smells:

  • Gak - (If you were a 90's kid and loved Nickelodeon, you knew how great Gak was)
