I love bread. (Feeling a bit like Oprah here if you've seen her Weight Watchers commercial.) I love the smell of fresh baked bread. I love it plain, toasted, buttered, pretty much any way you can eat it, but my favorite way is to pick up a fresh loaf or fresh rolls from a bakery (if I don't make it myself) and eat it as is.
The other day my sister and I went shopping and I of course had to stop and buy fresh baked rolls. I opened the cellophane package and inhaled. The scent of those rolls was amazing. "Heaven," I said as I took another whiff. That unconscious comment got me thinking - what do people think Heaven smells like?
I asked my sister in her opinion what did she think Heaven smelled like. Her answer - laundry dried outside in the summer. I started asking other family members and friends. The answers ranged from peanut butter, pastries, chocolate, a mother's perfume, fresh and clean, and more.
I'd like to take an informal poll just because I'm curious. What do you think Heaven smells like? There is no wrong answer. It's what you personally think.
