They say smell creates the most powerful memories. I'm not sure who "they" are, but I trust 'em . . . because they're right. Ever smelled something that just ROCKETED you back to when you were a youngin?

 

A new survey asked people to name the scents that take them back to their childhoods. Here's the top 10 . . .

 

1. Fresh-cut grass.

 

2. Pencil shavings.

 

3. Baby powder.

 

4. Vicks vapor rub and other cold and cough medicines.

 

5. Play-Doh.

 

6. Cotton candy.

 

7. Bonfires.

 

8. Suntan lotion.

 

9. French fries.

 

10. An old lady's perfume that reminds you of your grandma. (Mid Devon Gazette)
