I kinda like the open zippo lighter...not lit.
Rooms not heated in winter, closed off and not used for a while.
Fresh spit pickup load of green water oak.
The musk after you knock the hell out of an alligator with a paddle that keeps chasing a top water lure to the boat.

Back in my day we would sniff freshly mimeographed paper because it smelled like freshly mimeographed paper.

The shiner minnow tank at Sally's Quick Mart with a few dead ones floating around.
You stop for some gas and there's 2 pumps out front and there's empty nab cracker wrappers and scratch off cards blown in the corner by the ice machine and lots of bottle caps on the ground along with several unidentifiable stains between the gas pumps and the front door. By the gas pumps there's a barrel for trash overflowing with cans and stuff folks rake up off the floorboard of their cars.
There's about 20 shellacked cane poles leaning up against the building. Red worms and a big cricket cage with upside down egg cartons for the crickets to hide under.
...and peanuts boiling and maybe a few peaches and tomatoes with flies buzzing around....and several of those fly trap tapes hanging down that needed changing last week.....
......Its a combo smell.
