Cart, agree 100% on freshly mowed hay. Love that. Love the smell of just threshed wheat as it comes out of the auger into the truck to go to the elevator.

I'm an Afrikaans speaking "boertjie" who grew up on a farm in the "Groot Karoo". Semi-desert type of area where, in 1960/61, not a drop of water fell from the sky for 12 months. Maybe hard to believe but, true.

So, the smell of "earth" for me means something else than for others. Yes, I did smell the earth while and after the first rains came after that severe drought. I did smell the earth when my dad ploughed little areas which was suitable for a vegetable garden, corn and wheat. And I loved it. But I also smelled the dry, dusty Karoo. I appreciate the smell of my freshly cut lawn. But the smell of rain, mixed with dirt, old motoroil, diesel, rubber and what not on our streets, is awefull.

So, I find it hard, almost impossible, to assosiate all these smells and aromas with the tobacco I'm smoking. I don't want "EARTH" in there.

I will thus continue to smoke what I like and like what I smoke and bugger the rest!! Laughing

Ron, I grew up very poor but despite of that, we never ate dirt neither did we chew leather Twisted Evil  We did not eat grass or hay either.  That was used for the farm animals only.

Did all of that when I was a kid including chew'en on lead sinkers. Wink

But we never ate paint! No

Eeew! I hate to think how many split shot sinkers I bit down on when fishing. drunken

Come to think of it, that could explain a lot!

Imagine a blend with hints of green painted lead sinkers,  a whiff of old leather gloves and well worn army boots, faint florals like grannies panties, woodsy reminders of shavings from old toilet seats and a far-off but destinct smell of tobacco.

Mm mm... I want to try that blend. No

Same. I recently smoked some Tom Eltang Mixture. Very earthy.
