    ok...so smells that remind me of home ( home as in Jamaica i assume)

    coconut oil
    fried fish with vinegar
    camphor / moth balls....it was very typical to have those in closets, drawers, etc where clothing was stored cus of the insects getting at them
    peppermint
    cinnamon
    pimento ( a spice you can google it)
    rain on the window. i grew up in a house with zinc roof so we could hear the rain splatter on the roof
    seeing rain run off in the gutters...reminds me of sailing boats in the gutter back home when in rained

    most the thing i mentioned though dont seem exclusive to Jamaica...seems like a mexican, south american or asian person could tell u these same things. hope this helped....and remember....you owe me a book

        Here's my input... The smell of rain drops as it hit the earth. There is something earthly delicious about that scent and as a child, it made me felt like I wanted to stick my tongue to mother earth's brown soil and taste that earthy scent on the tip of my tongue.

          The smell of the jasmine on the back verandah at night.

          Mangoes at the market

          The smell of the roasting peanuts from the peanut man as he rides his bicycle through the neighborhood in the early evening

                            Thank you, Wahalla! I appreciate your feedback, and you'll be the last person on this post to receive a free copy when the book comes out. Anyone posting after this - of course, your input and experiences are helpful, but due to book-sending-out-restraints, only the people who posted previously will receive a copy.

                            And good news - I just received word from my editor today that the entire house (marketers, sales team, etc) is really buzzing with excitement about the story.
                            Ratid me due a free copy!!!!!!!
