... 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.

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.
