that campfire smell


for the very same reason that as a kid my clothes were the first into the laundry pile, those clothes are now the last. i think when you're young, it's easy to take nature for granted, but now as an adult who spends far too much time indoors, it seems a shame to wash away the smokey smell. i'd buy a perfume that smells like it, but nothing beats the real thing.


my mother in law sent me an album by "hem" after hearing them and thinking their music and name reminded her of me. i thought that was so sweet.

totally agree with you about the campfire smell! it reminds me of all the good times i've had sitting around the campfire with friends.

oh a little side note about hem. i sort of (yes, sort of) dated a guy several years ago and he told me about hem. he also said it reminded him of me since i am a seamstress. haha.

I had always loved this song when I heard it on the insurance commercial... I am glad to know who the band is now. I'll have to check out the album; if the rest of it is as good as "Half Acre" I have a feeling I will love it!

I can imagine the wonderful smell of wood smoke... such a cozy scent.

I love the smell of a campfire. I don't even like to wash it out of my clothes either.

okay, I know commenting on something from so long ago is bad form, but I just have to say a big thank you for alerting me to this music! I'm now hooked. Thanks, thanks, thanks!
