Ok, so I don't mean Plymouth smells per se, I mean Plymouth smells.

let me explain..............

I have worked in quite a few places, Home and abroad. Every time I come back to the UK and in particular Muff, it seems I catch a whiff of some old familiar smell. That just reminds me I am back in my home city and those smells only a local Janner would associate with. It's not every time, and sometimes only when you visit certain areas.

A few examples.

Coming down the A38 towards Marsh Mills roundabout from about the top of Plympton - sometimes I get a waft of sweet and sickly = Wrigleys. Sometimes it's shitty mud = the Plym estuary, sometimes it's the salty sea air, well, = sea!!

Others would be Camels Head shit works, Radiation from the Dockyard, Salty air in and around the city centre, There's a crisp factory at Beliver, you can smell that frying smell on most days in North Plymouth, The smell of baking bread from the former British Bakeries at Burington Way, puke & piss around the Barbican on a Sunday morning stroll, that putrid frying smell from burger stalls on a Saturday night, oh, and that burning smell in Whitleigh on a Sunday morning from the locals torching cars the previous evening..tongue

You forgot the fish factory.... here, the main smell at the moment is dead grapes. As soon as it comes cold, you get first the sound and after the smell of dead pigs. (Our pig killer is very nice and therefore doesn't create much pig dying noise, some other killers seem to thrive on it).
