Getting into an old aircraft - something with piston engines, c 1950. No idea what that smell is made up of but its my version of Proust's madeleine - takes me back to my first flights.

There are smells one occasionally encounters that, with an indefinable mystery about them, take one back to some subliminal part of one's past, those ones.

I understand smells are processed in a very primitive part of the brain, the reptilian bit(we Geordies no longer have this bit having evolved past you lot)this also stores some deep seated memories, ergo certain smells trigger these and bring them to the fore.
