Yup, same thing here, I like cooking meat or burger patties a lot, and my apartment is fairly small, so even with good ventilation it’ll smell like bbq odour for a while after.
Otherwise it’s fairly neutral.
Our entire house smells like dog. We’ve had dogs since before we moved streets when I was little. At one point in time, we had four dogs; I’m sure you can imagine the sheer amount of hair and odor produced by them. We only have two little dogs now, but they still maintain The Funk and general hairiness pretty well.
I’m also allergic to them, which is great and doesn’t bother me one bit.
when i came home from school, i could really notice the smell of the old wood trim at my folks’ place. ive stopped noticing it over the past year, tho. by the piano, the carpet smells distinctly like cat – she’s doing much much better now, but at one point her anxiety got pretty bad. my room is whatever scented candle i’ve got going.
Came home yesterday and I caught the smell of ripening banana so I threw that trash in the fridge. Otherwise been smeling like the flowers blooming outside, since we are currently in a permanent open window situation, so we don’t boil.
Sometimes it will smell like curry.
Not a lot of old smells, since it was renovated before we moved in four months ago.
my room smells like dust and candles bc I live in a storage room that I can’t ever fully clean and light a lot of candles, sometimes it smells like dust and incense instead
the kitchen often smells a lot like garlic, ginger, and because I cook a lot with staple South Asian spices like cardamom, turmeric, cumin, various blends of curry powder and masala spices, it often smells like the table at an Indian restaurant nearest to the kitchen
If you have any unwanted smells in your house and can’t get rid of them even when you’ve removed the offending source (so say food that went off, stinky garbage, badly draining drains) - a handy tip is boiling water with orange (or any citrus rinds) and cloves, cinnamon. It creates very pleasant notes that will help mask the stink a bit if you are having people over or have aversion to nasty strong smells or whatever.
ETA: You can also make your own orange or citrus cleanser as well if you want to clean something and not smell chemicals:
50/50 water and vinegar + orange essential solution is a cool way to clean stuff that doesn’t have a ton of harsh chems and also cleans a shit ton of things. I use vinegar/water cleaner on a lot of stuff that doesn’t need specific cleansers (catbox is a great choice here)! Tip: must like smell of vinegar though.
We make a lot of waffles and a lot of foods with fresh garlic at my place, so depending on which we’ve had most recently the apartment tends to either smell like butter and cinnamon or the very embodiment of garlic (and probably onions too).
