    ... is quite possibly my favorite smell. It smells clean, with a bit of toastiness, as if the linens were mildly roasted. For maximum effect, hang dry your linens out in the sunlight. One can also achieve this on a smaller scale by simply leaving your linens (or by positioning your bed) in direct sunlight. This smell can be achieved with most fabrics but 100% cotton seems to be best.

    Am I the only that is familiar with this smell? Everybody I've explained it to has given me a crazy look.
