10 Smells that Transport Us Back to Childhood

Posted May 15th, 2014 @ 5:03am by Chilli Amar



They say smell creates the most powerful memories.  I'm not sure who "they" are, but I trust them...because they're right.  Ever smelled something that just ROCKETED you back to when you were a kid?

A new survey asked people to name the scents that take them back to their childhoods.  Here are the top 10 . . .


1.  Fresh-cut grass.

2.  Pencil shavings.

3.  Baby powder.

4.  Vicks vapor rub and other cold and cough medicines.

5.  Play-Doh.

6.  Cotton candy.

7.  Bonfires.

8.  Suntan lotion.

9.  French fries.

10.  An old lady's perfume that reminds you of your grandma.
