Original message (posted by mollie m)
Regarding the original post, I can still smell the wood polish that was used in the Children's Library which used to be on, what was, Station Road in the 1950s. I'd go there as a 6 year old child to get out the latest Noddy book or, perhaps a year later, Famous Five or Secret Seven. The floors were wooden, the balustrades were wooden, in fact, all that lovely dark wood gleamed and the smell was amazing. I believe it was Beeswax that was used.

Priscus:

I think you're right about smells changing with age as I grew to love the smell of firelighters - not to be recommended - damp wood and soil, and even coal. There are a lot of food smells that I love as well.
