The Roma Aroma

My favorite smells are as follows, in no particular order:
The aroma of fresh roasted coffee beans

Toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil in a dumpling sauce

The sweet and musky sent of Barbary Brit perfume

...and now since I've moved to Italy I have added another to the list. Olive oil.
The robust scent of a strong virgin olive oil as it hits a warm pan and releases it's scent into the kitchen. Or drizzled over my salad with just a little salt and lemon. I have grown to love it more and more and before moving here I never noticed it's smell before. I'm tempted to dab a bit behind each ear...
