Autumn definitely has to be one of my favourite times of the year, as I love that it still stays light until seven o’clock in the evening, that the Weather starts to get a little bit cooler and that it brings so many delicious scents with it, and I thought that I would tell you five of my favourite scents of Autumn.
Anyway, that’s enough of me rambling, here’s five of my favourite scents of Autumn.
1. The smell of Bonfires.
I don’t know why, but the smell of Bonfires just screams Autumn to me, especially at the beginning of November around Bonfire Night as all of the Air around my Village is full of the sweet and sticky yet ever so slightly smokey smell of burning Wood.
2. The smell of Toffee.
I think this one also has something to do with Bonfire Night, as Toffee is on pretty much everything at this time of the year, including Toffee Apples, Bonfire Toffee and now even the Costa Coffee Bonfire Spiced Hot Chocolate.
3. The smell of Wet Leaves.
I know that this is a strange one, but I just love the smell after it’s been raining all day and there’s loads of Leaves on the ground that have been soaked in the fresh and watery yet ever so slightly acidic scent of Rain. I also absolutely love the crunchy sound that Dead Leaves make when you walk on them.
4. The smell of Pumpkins.
I know that this is another strange one, but I love the scent that you smell whenever you pass a stand full of Pumpkins in a Supermarket, as it has a very unique fresh and fruity yet ever so slightly earthy scent to it, and given that Pumpkins are a massive symbol of Halloween, they’re pretty much everywhere at this time of the year.
5. The smell of Slow Cooked Meat
There’s just nothing better in Autumn, especially when it’s pitch Black by three o’clock in the afternoon, to come home to a nice big piece of Beef, Lamb or Pork roasting in a Slow Cooker and the smell of perfectly cooked Meat wafting through the House.
I have loads more favourite scents of Autumn, but I thought that I would just tell you five of them.
