OMG! I know!! People think I am INSANE for preferring one type of water over the other. I don't like my mom's tap water, but ours is amazing. I get weird looks all the time.
When we lived in Florida the water was absolutely disgusting. It even smelled bad, like it was burnt or had burned rubber in it or something gross. I got used to it after two years, but was never able to drink it. For a while showering felt so pointless though. Blech.
My grandma's house smells wonderful, like my grandma. I love going to her house. It smells fresh and clean and like her lotion, yummy!
My friend's house smells like pickles (a scent from previous owners) and this certain scent my friend has. It's kinda weird, but I'm used to it so it doesn't gross me out.
My house smells like new. The other day it did smell like a dirty diaper, yuck!
When we were house hunting, we found a house that smelled like lavender. That's the house we bought. It smelled SO good. We never did figure out how they got it to smell that nice.
I am so glad to hear that other people are olfactory freaks like me. I get so much grief for having a sharp nose. Anyone else like the smell of a brand new book and/or a bookstore? Mmmmm, new paper and ink. YUM.
(Off to go drink my special tap water now
