Olfactory work

I have in my possession the results of a Yale University study that lists the "20 most recognizable smells in the United States." I am going to post the list on my blog sometime in the near future. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to guess what is on the list. Share your answers by commenting on this post and we'll see who comes closest to the results of the study.

P.S. I want to establish once and for all that you do not need to create a Google account to post comments on this blog (see below).

To comment on a post click the "comments" link beneath the post you want to write about. Type your comment into the text box and select "Name/URL" as your identity. Type your name in the "Name" box and hit "publish your comment." Congratulations, your typings will now be posted into the matrix of the interwebs.  Now get commentin'!

Here are some things that would make my list of recognizable smells:

1. Gasoline
2. Cut lemons
3. Car exhaust
4. Honeysuckle
5. Elmer's glue
6. BBQ (charcoal and grilled meat)
7. Freshly baked cookies
8. Dry erase markers
9. Tequila
10. Soil (dirt)

Looking forward to seeing what Yale came up with.
