Ok lately 'm getting a little worried,
I love..actually no ..I LOVE the smell of solvents etc...
spray paint, petrol omg yummy petrol, nail enamel, Monomer (I am so happy when I can smell monomer )
even permenant markers !!

When I was pregnant with my girls my cravings were smells, not really foods , with the first it was new magazines, new plastic things, (such as rain covers , blow up beach ball's etc) and petrol, even though if I got a whiff of petrol it made me sick !

With my second child it was permanent markers, I purposely had a stash of markers that I hid around the house because my partner didnt like it , he thought it would be bad for the baby (now 8)
but every now and then he would come in from work and say
"emma have you been sniffing markers"
Id reply
"no love, i havent I told you I wouldn't"
he would come back at me with
"oh right ok , go and look in the mirror"
and yes ! I'd have a big black dot on my nose :suprised:

Any way I am definatley NOT pregnant,
but is there only me that gets really excited when they get a whiff of their favourite smell.
obviously I will not be opening my monomer and taking a big sniff,as that would just be plain stupid ! (before anybody tells me off lol)
but god even when I was driving before I said to my boyfy "oooh I could just sniff a nail enamel " :eek:

PLease say it's not just me !!!!

No Emm you're not weird and if you are so am I - I love the smell of nail polish and also kerosene, sulphur (when a match has just been struck). Although monomer is a no no for me can't stand the smell of that!

I love to smell creosote, fresh tarmac and freshly baked bread (but that's not unusual lol).
Whenever I drive through roadworks where they're laying tarmac I always make sure the airvents are open LMAO, it drives my daughter mad because she hates the smell of it!

Quite like the smell of monomer . . . . one of my clients has a fixation with it and has been known to try and grab the dappen dish or monomer bottle to get her fix!! She also adores the whiff of primer and sits smelling her nails after I've applied it :eek::eek:

No you´re not weird at all Emms, I Love the smell of Creosote, tarmac & permanent markers...(my personal fave) and Covonia cough medicine.
I used to love petrol in the uk but where I live now it really is disgusting, I have absolutely no idea what they put in it over here but the petrol stations all smell like they have a very bad drainage problem....if you know what I mean!!! lol

I'm with you on all this too!

I used to get into trouble at work for smelling the marker pens (yes, I'd get the marker pen nose too!), tippex (well, the cheapie pretend tippex which wasn't as good as the real thing, and oh my god I love monomer!!!!

Oooh actually... the girl who sits next to me at my Creative Foundation course got a bottle of brush solvent for cleaning gunked up brushes in. I took the lid of that and had a damned good whiff! It was Lurvely!!!!! I thought it smelt a bit like cake batter (but solventy, if you see what I mean).
