another vote for cut grass
most carnations don't smell, but there's a special variety (I think called 'pinks')which do, and they're amazing.

- PROPER sellotape. not the foul-smelling stuff.
- old tube-station smells. not the eerie smell of sick that pervades waterloo station... more the old, damp smell you get at the older stations. mmm.
