    I hate, hate, hate, the smell of burnt electronics and zinc thermal paste. It makes me think of stress and loss. Plus the burnt paste gets in your nails and it smells for days and the smoke smell gets on your clothes.
    I love the smell of a freshly opened pack of gaming cards or collectable cards.
    I love the smell of a burnt match. It gives me warm and good ole childhood memories. [​IMG]
    Oh, and I hate the smell of centipedes, the oil gets on your hands and your hands stink after playing with them.

    I love the smell of new electronics... particularly audio equipment for some reason... computers don't smell that attractive to me.

    Since we're discussing smells:
    But, my absolute favorite smell in the whole wide world is wet, hot concrete... not "freshly-poured-not-hard-yet" concrete, but "a-summer-rain-just-fell-on-the-sidewalk-and-now-the-sun-is-out" wet concrete.

    I'll have to get back to you on the smell of centipedes.

    I loved the smell of Victoria rail station in London. Went through there on the way to see Peter Pan at a theatre when I was a child. Every time I smell diesel, I'm carried back to the station of thirty years ago.

    Funny how smells can evoke such strong memories.

    Mmmmm...Volatile Organic Compounds.[​IMG]
    I like that smell in the air just prior to the start of a thunderstorm. I'm not talking about the ozone from lightning, either.
    Dial soap reminds me of my first days of boot camp- a shower and 20 mins of sleep, after being up for over 24 hours, followed by 36 additional hours of no-sleep hell. Not a pleasant reminder.[​IMG]

    my guess is that new electronics smell has something to do with the solvents used in the manufacture of the circuit boards? and new car smell is something similar.
    me I prefer the smell of Mom's cooking... [​IMG]

    I dunno what it was, but I bought a new XBox S controller and it was one of the best things I've ever smelled [​IMG]

    I was just in a store the other day surrounded by receivers. I immediately turned and told my wife how much I love the smell. Great stuff.

    New car smell is nice, but it's expensive! [​IMG]
    I can't say that I've ever experienced new airplane smell, nor am I likely to in this lifetime, unless it's an airliner or something. How about new boat smell? Can't say I've experienced that either.
    I enjoy the smell of new gear, especially receivers and speakers. DVD/CD players don't seem to smell as much for some reason. I can't remember if my tank of a DVP-S9000ES had a smell when I unboxed it two years ago, but given its build I bet it had a nice smell! [​IMG]
    As for new computer smell, I prefer the new laptop smell personally. [​IMG]
