What's a smell that people think is nasty but you actually kind of like?  Something that may remind you of a different time and place. Something that may relax you. A smell that I would add is the smell of a horse. I have heard that it is actually something that comforts children with emotional disorders. When I brush my horse or just lay on her it seems to mellow me out and if I am physically feeling bad, it makes me feel better.
