The Nose Knows Doodle Painting

Isn't language weird? Who do you think decided that it was a good idea to have more than one word that sounds the same but means something completely different? In this painting, I was playing with this idea as the nose which makes up the girl is reading something - "she knows something" The nose is a strange sense too, isn't it? There's no other sense that can take you back to a place so much. When I smell popcorn, it always takes me back to when I was about 7. We lived in the USA for a couple of years in Houston, Texas. Most weeks we would go to a roller-skating rink with another family. I loved it, but the overwhelming smell in the place was popcorn and melted butter from the counter which sold it. Is there any smell that takes you back to a place or time?(preferably nice ones)
