I’m not sure of that one smell I associate with summer, but I know a smell that is welcoming. It’s not uncommon for the smell of one’s cologne to still be noticed in the winter or fall. Unless someone lives in a bubble, there will always be contact with other individuals. If they do or do not smell good, one will notice. The smell of manure is certainly pronounced in spring. But how cool it is to walk along the coast and smell the ocean. In conjunction with that is the aroma of food that resonates from grills. It’s so amazing how smells catapult your thoughts and awaken other senses. But truly, there is no other time that the smell of a grill is as strong.
S’mores, salty ocean breezes, veggie burgers on the grill, sweaty people on the bus — what’s the smell you associate the most with summer?
