Writing Prompt: Scent Memory

There are certain scents that awaken memories or trigger certain emotions. Some pleasant, some not.

For me, there are some that I can recognise instantly and stir up all sorts of images:

vanilla
cut grass
petrol
cinnamon
burning leaves
toothpaste
wet cat fur
fabric softener
coffee
boiled eggs (not so nice)

These are the first 10 that spring to mind.

Try writing down familiar scents and write what you love or hate about them. Do any of them conjure up certain memories?
