The soldiers were led by Samuel Kanyon Doe, who immediately set up a military regime called the People’s Redemption Council. He also declared April 12 National Redemption Day. His rule, however, was not the welcome change that many anticipated, and for Doe’s opponents, National Redemption Day was a time to memorialize the many individuals who were killed in 1980. Today, many Liberians observe the anniversary by remembering the slain. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Descriptive Words for Scents

Isn’t it amazing how words can take shape and materialize into depictions of real-world encounters, including scents and sounds? With a few poetic lines, a reader can visualize precisely how an author was feeling, down to the very smell in the room.

The more descriptive the word, the greater the chance that the imagination will recreate the scent. That’s why it’s vital to have a few descriptive words for scents ready to go. You never know when you’ll want to share the memory of a fine day, right down to the jasmine wafting through the air.

Scent Synonyms and Antonyms

The word “scent” can refer to a lovely perfume or a strong odor. There are many synonyms you can use instead of the word “scent” to avoid repetition, including:

Aroma Odorize
Aura Perfume
Balm Pheromone
Bouquet Redolence
Essence Smell
Fragrance Trace
Incense Whiff

Remember that while each of these words may have the same fundamental meaning as the word “scent,” the associated connotation can be quite different. You might talk about how much you love the aroma of freshly baked bread, but it wouldn’t make much sense to talk about the pheromone of freshly baked bread.

If you’re looking for antonyms of the word “scent” instead, you could use such words as stench, stink, or reek. These have much more a negative connotation to them, like how you might talk about the stench of a dumpster in a back alley.

Describing a Scent

Some descriptive words for scents refer to what made the smell or explain what it smells like. For example, you might try some of these words on for size.

Doggy Minty
Lemon Moldy
Lemony Pine
Lilac Plastic
Lime Rose
Mildewed Skunky
Mint Woodsy

Most descriptive words for scents describe the way something smells or what the smell represents. These include words like the following.

Acid Musty
Acrid Nauseating
Airy Perfumed
Biting Pungent
Clean Putrid
Crisp Rancid
Dirty Redolent
Earthy Repulsive
Faint Rotten
Feminine Sharp
Fetid Sour
Fishy Spicy
Floral Spoiled
Flowery Stale
Fresh Stinking
Light Sweaty
Loamy Sweet
Masculine Tart
Moist Wispy

Descriptive Words Set the Mood

It is said that our sense of smell is our strongest link to memories, even more than our sight or hearing. Indeed, scents can bring back the past or can set the mood for new experiences. So, why wouldn’t we want to incorporate some of that into our speech and writing?

As you continue to create various scenes within your writing, you can utilize this list of descriptive words: adjectives, adverbs, and gerunds. Get ready to bring entire universes to life with your words.

Walking shadows
Tracing silhouettes
Moon is high while my feet wandered.
I felt the tight rope break
Snap beneathe my step
I’m still walking out in thin air.
Whenever I go
Will I go far
However I go
Oh I know
I go on Standing in the shadows.
Walking in forward motion
Chasing sun that I
Always needed to hold on to.
I can’t be sure
Where I will lay my head
But I’ll find a way to get there.
Whenever I go
Will I go far
However I go
Oh I know
I go on Morning breaks
You will see, all that’s lifted off of me
I’m holding on, holding on.
I’ve hit the crack
Hit a wall
You might think that I will fall
I’m holding on, holding on.
I go on Standing in the shadows.
I go on Standing in the shadows.
