Yeah. I really want to smell dirt, rain, wood burning, mowed grass, and shoe polish.

I bought a cantalope and it sort of had a an earthy smell, like dirt, and I just sat there smelling it and I couldn't stop.

I feel like if I don't bust out the shoe polish and smell it i'll go nuts. But I don't think we have any. It feels the same as a food craving. I'm a freak.

Haha you too! But I think by "cute" you mean the biggest freak in the world. Though i'm happy to see at least gen and alexa liked to smell things too.

I seriously can't stop thinking about the things I want to smell. I even salivate a bit thinking about them. I just smell everything now. It's my new hobby. My friend lent me a sweater and it smelt so good I just sat there and smelt it for so long. I felt like a perv, at least no one was watching, which in a way makes it even more perverted.

Yeah I have a habit with smelling everything too. My thing is this off brand pine sol stuff. It smells fruity and I just could sit there and smell it all day but the chemicles in it are bad so I can't. I'm like you if it smells good then i'll just sit there and sniff it over and over. I feel like a freak sometimes too. What pregnancy does to some people..Lol

I loved the smell of these lemon lysol-type cleaning wipes, but since it's a cleaning product I couldn't smell it much. Every now and again i'd just sneak a sniff or two. Glad to see i'm not the only freak!

Lol tanya, sniffing the sweater!

Oh my gosh! I was just watching a baby story and a commercial came on for .Gain detergent and it was about the narrators pregnant wife having cravings for the smell of it! So I got up and ran to post about it. It seems loserish how I was so excited to come post about it now that i'm done writing it.

Hell no it doesn't stink :p that's what tommy uses, it just doesn't last for very long, the smell. At least I dont' think it does.

I spray my sheets with it at night and by morning it seems like it's gone.

When I was little and we were at walmart I used to stand in the freezer section with the doors open and just smelllll it lol I love that.
