Yes to decaying flesh of all sorts.

The smell of wee, boiled cabbage and fear in the mental institution I had to visit as part of social studies in the 6th form.

Slurry spreading.

The disinfectant used in Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup.

Swedes. The root vegetables, not the lassies. Fond memories of one from Norkoping (sp)!

People who haven't changed their shirt (or blouse) when the should have.

Wet dogs

Dog shit

Sage stuffing

Pig shit (spread on fields as a fertiliser)

Changing rooms at sports facilities or gyms (or school!)

Diesel fumes (diesel fuel should carry a 1/Litre health tax for its particulates!)

The smell of McDonald's (anything) carried/being eaten on a crowded train

Sewer sucker trucks when they first open the valve on a hot day to release the gas pressure ( and yes,a whole load of very hungover people were gagging and retching)

Once got stuck behind a muck spreader tootling along a narrow country lane at about three miles per hour, one of those rare red hot summer days, couldn't overtake or stop because of traffic behind or pull in,we could hear the tractor driver chortling to himself,will remember that choking reek until me dying day.
It smelled like human poo as well,not critter dung,human is the worst kind of poo smellwise,good for the turnips and cabbages though.

Another couple of highly unpleasant smells:

-Silage
-An active abattoir. Smell of fear is palpable; hangs around a long time.

Melaena...



PS: The old examination schools in Queen's Square were saturated with the smell of fear from generations of would be graduates...

Walking along a Northumberland beach JR Barney foraging about a hundred yards ahead when he happened upon a dead Seal, it had obviously been in that state for quite a few days so he decides as he cant eat it or drag it home he will vigorously roll around on it for some reason,Gordon Bennet! never was there such a flung in the sea hosed down scrubbed splooshed with endless buckets of water dog in Christendom and he still honked for days.
One would hate to read a thread asking dogs what is their hated smell.

One's infant school was sandwiched between a knackers yard and a bleach factory.

One has had no problem with smells since moving up to secondary school.

Nervous flight test candidates.

Someone wearing trainers with no socks...especially in a small aeroplane.

Garlic/curry breath

Nappies full of baby shit.

Kangaroo road kill in the summertime..day three is the worst.

And from English boarding school days...boiled cabbage ... absolutely vile...my husband is of german descent and loves sauerkraut, that smells even worse than school cabbage.

Also from school days, hundreds of sporty teenage girls crammed together in assembly at a school where anything more than one bath a week, whether you needed it or not, was considered a "sin of vanity" and banned. (now that the nuns are gone the spoiled brats have en-suites!) But the French exchange girls and the African girls took body odour to a level that made it impossible to be in the same room. The dead rats under the floorboards smells were preferable.

As for farm smells, nothing like a sunny day on the shite cart as long as it is herbivore muck, mmmm lovely. Silage only stinks when oxygen has got in there and it goes off. Properly made silage smells lovely!

Damn! Now Caco's gone, perhaps someone else with current access to yootoob would link to the Loudon Wainwright song of the same name. Pretty please???

Post-TACEVAL RAF personnel

Middle of the afternoon on last day. A DISTAFF fingered me between HAS and PBF and announced I had been vaporised by the first nuke. "For you, ze var is over". With an hour to kill, I went back to the mess, showered & changed". Big mistake. When I walked into the bar, the BO hit me like a freight train.
I went and changed back into my smelly gear, and by the time I got back to the bar it was no longer a problem. Very curious.
