Smells make you feel nostalgic, they can make and break your day – without doubt they are right up there in the top six of senses.

A recent poll of 1,000 adults showed that the smell of home comforts is an easy win for most people, with a whopping 84% admitting they like to make sure their home smells nice.

In keeping with that tradition, the survey commissioned by Harris Brushes found that the nation’s favourite smell is freshly baked bread.

Runner-up scents included the likes of bacon, a Sunday roast and cakes baking in the oven (not food obsessed at all).

Here are the top 10 smells…

1. Freshly baked bread

2. Bacon

Nothing pleases the nostrils more than cooked pig.

3. Freshly cut grass

4. Coffee

Sometimes you just need to wake up and smell it!

5. Cakes baking in the oven

6. The seaside

Not sure whether this includes Larne?

7. Freshly washed clothes

8. A Sunday roast

Because mid-week ones just don’t cut it!

9. Fish and chips

You can’t have one without the other – a bit like Ant and Dec.

10. Fresh flowers
