I love the smell of a mans chest, wow, there is nothing like it.
I don't have any smells to associate with my father which is a shame however my uncle who was a father figure, used to cuddle us and I remember the smell of his brylcream! lol
my cats smell of fresh air when they come in from outdoors and I love to bury my face in their little fur coats.
Of course there is nothing like the smell of a new baby! I love to cuddle a baby, it makes me feel so relaxed and comfortable, there is nothing like it in the world.

mainly though, i associate smells with times and places. i remember a washing liquid from a os tip when i was a child, a hairspray from when my sister would subject me to her morning treatments, the smell of the first booze i got really pissed on ... (ewwww!)

Awfully kitsch i know.
I also carry at all times some mementos froms our early days (a small piece or cloth that we used for a symbolic galic wedding, staying tied for a whole days with it!); my daughter's bellybutton clip, my deceased father's wool cap and his scarf. When i wear this cap and scarf around my family members, everyone is reminded of my dad Victor, and my mother said that it still has the same smell, even though it is me wearing it.
Yeah i know i'm getting kitschier, but i like that and if you don't, well, you know what to do!

I remember as a child I would lay next to my mother, or lay my head in her lap she would run her fingers through my hair (and to this day only her and my boyfriend can play with my hair) and I just remember her natural smells.
My papaw always either smells of grease from working on cars or gum because he carries it in his front pocket.
My boyfriend is a diabetic so anytime I smell that sterile hospital smell that comes with the diabetic pump he uses I always think of him, his natural smells are very comforting as well, its not a smell I can describe but when I smell it I just know, and of course the smell of his cologne's are always nice to.
When I smell a dum dum sucker or a dandelion I think of my cousin who passed away when we were young.
My list could go on, but as I said I do associate most people with smells. But I also remember them by things they say or how they say it. And laughs are thing I always remember or nervous habits that people have.

My boyfriend does that, even if I'm there, the moment I get up and I'm out of the bed for more than I few minutes, he rolls to my side of the bed.
