Cow manure, a sweet perfume?

Bamboozled? John Bartheld holds Peanut, a miniature panda cow, Thursday on his farm in Roy, Wash. Bartheld has been breeding miniature cows on his farm for seven years, hoping to re-create black and white markings in the pattern of a panda to make a “panda cow.” He succeeded on June 28 when Peanut was born.

Slice reader Jim Emory says the smell of cow manure is nostalgic.: "It reminds me of days riding my bicycle on small backcountry roads in Germany as a young teenager (my dad was stationed there with the military). It was spread on all the farm fields, pulled behind tractors in what were called honey buckets." More here.

Question: What smells bring you comfort?
