I have this all the time it's crazy, a new one is when I'm stocking the fridges at work with juice the smell reminds me of when I worked in sweet spells on sunset when I did the summer programme

When you go to an out of town retail park on a hot morning (our local ones are Teesside Park and Dalton Park) and the moment you get out of the car the smell of warm air and concrete hits you - takes us right back to Belz and the Premium Outlets. Me and the kids always say "smells like Florida".

The other one that prompts the same reaction is after heavy rain on a hot day and once the rain has stopped there's that damp, hot, earthy, grassy smell. (That's never gonna make it as a Yankee Candle fragrance name is it??!!) We were in Orlando in 2004 for Hurricane Rita and again in 2005 for Hurricane Frances, so yes we have first hand experience of that wet/hot smell!

Yep, heavy rain after a hot day does it for me too!

Nivea Happy shower gel is what I use out there and I sometimes get a bottle here

I use Febreeze spray in my car and that smells like the hire car in Orlando

I visited Cheshire Oaks on Saturday and I have to say it reminded me of premium outlets.

-Concrete road was cracked
- Sun was shining
- I could smell doughnuts

Magical, I want to go back NOW!

I discovered this on a quiet day in the tea shop in the UK Pavilion as a cast member....
Lapsang Souchong tea smells like spaceship earth!
I will have a quick sniff of a box of the stuff if I ever see it!
