Smell of the Day

This day had a special smell. It was a yellow/grey smell that sways in the warm air of a summer evening.
That smell of freshly harvested straw is one of the most intense smells I can think of. On one side it reminds me of my childhood and the attempts of running bare feet across a stubble field. On the other hand it's an indicator that the summer switched into it's final phase.
Anyway, my nose is already drunk with the smell.

What is your smell of the day?


  1. Cement. It´s odd but I really like the smell of cement and concrete.

  2. Ein konservierter Duft aus meiner Kindheit steckt in dem hohen, stets kalten Hausflur meiner Oma. Da ist uraltes Holz, Steinfußboden und Geschichten vom Milchladen und Postamt, sogar noch etwas vom Geruch der Speisekammer, in der seit 20 Jahren nur noch Fahrräder und altes Werkzeug stehen.
