Bacon vs. Baby: Who Wins the Smell Test?

The scintillating smell of yummy, oh-so-delicious bacon or the faint smell of throw-up? Well, duh! No wonder we prefer the smell of bacon to newborn baby, according to a survey of thousands of Brits by OnePoll:


1. Freshly baked bread
2. Clean sheets
3. Freshly mown grass
4. Fresh flowers
5. Freshly ground coffee
6. Fresh air after rain fall
7. Vanilla
8. Chocolate
9. Fish and chips
10. Bacon frying
11. Roast dinner
12. Babies
13. Lemon zest
14. Lavender
15. Petrol
16. Apple and blackberry crumble in the oven
17. A freshly lit match
18. Roses
19. Party poppers
20. Rubber tyres

Freshly lit match? Petrol? Rubber tires? What's up with that?!

When I was a little kid, I had a friend who used to run up behind trucks and inhale deeply when they accelerated away.

I thought it was weird as hell, but I guess a lot of people like that smell. :)

My personal top two smells are probably fresh cut grass and the air after a rain storm.

Never have I smelled anything as divine as my own brand new babies. There is something so powerful in the scent on their heads the first 2 weeks. It must be nature's way of helping a mother bond because I don't think anyone else's babies necessarily smell good.
