Summer of 76; who can forget it.  The clouds disappeared from the sky in May, and didn't return until September.  Perfect blue sky for four to five months.  And the smells, well the smell of burning gorse all around the village.  I love the smell of burning gorse in the morning.

[QUOTE=jeremy windell]I remember that oil that everyone used to wear was all the rage when i was in primary school. I asked my mam if i could have some and she flipped, she said people used it to mask the scent of drugs (Didnt ask her how she knew at the time, but she did go through the 60's as a teen like)
 
Cant remember the name of the oil, but it had a well clean smell like.
 
Also remember a tree up in Parc Howard that me and the boys aptly named the 'spunk tree.' It was right by the mansion, and everytime we passed it, we all commented on how it smelt like the baby gravy we all produced in mass quantities during our teenage years.
 
Oh teenage years, how great they were. I'll always remember walking home along Pembrey Rd as a 14 year old spotty teenager when some 6th form bird, who had obviously got home before us, flashed her norks to us from her front room. Pressed right up against the glass on her window they were, lovely shape to them, or am i just reminiscing. They didnt smell of anything like, im just reminiscing about my youth like.........................

Tipp-Ex, Tipp-Ex thinners, and the pine smell from a real christmas tree. Freshly cooked mince pies and Brains Faoggots were bliss, not forgetting Um Bongo Juice drink!!! Star Couldn't beat the smell coming out of Buckleys, but then the following day it smelt like sh*t! Dead The grass bin in Parc Howard always smelt tidy, but the bottom of Charles Street did not! LOL Toffee Apples at the Christmas carnival smelt nice, and so did fresh cockles on a Saturday morning down the market. Thumbs Up Loved getting fresh fish and chips from Eddie's, Dill's or Tysia (or a Curry Butty), smelt beautiful, but I'll never forget the smell of my very first Chicken Chow Mein........bliss! Clap

The sweet stench of the pipe coming out by the North dock oh the sweet sweet smell. Can't believe they built posh houses down there they must have a giant smelly tree dangling at the entrance!!!Nuke
Circles Pub always triggered mentally the smell of polo mints (disguised the real smell of overflowing toilets!!!!
Saturday morning queueing in the cinema for the Saturday morning show and the waft of the hotdog machine as you got closer to paying then getting a box of poppets(raisen ones red box) and then running up the stairs getting covered in cheap red sauce aahhhhhhhhh
