Just found this fascinating article in the NY Times today--about the scents of NYC. Just reading through them will vastly increase our ability to use the sense of smell in our manuscripts.

I try to have at least one distinctive smell in each chapter. When I check my descriptions, I try to remember to include a scent, or several scents. Anyone else do this?
