My all time favorite smell in the kitchen is the garlic and onions saute in oil then added with tomatoes and soy sauce. It really makes me drool for that smell. :D

Freshly Ground Expresso Coffee
Fresh cut Lemons
Bagels out of the oven
Peanut butter cookies
And when my mother makes cherry chocolate almond fudge, if I could capture that aroma , cork it in a little bottle, with a pink and lace label "melt your senses", I am sure I could get at LEAST two dollars a sniff.....at least.

My grandmother worked in a bakery, and she would take me in with her once in awhile. I must've been 6-7 years old, the bakers used to let me go back and help them grease the cake pans. When we left there would always be a small box of rainbow cookies waiting for me on the counter. As off the wall as it sounds the smells of a hot oven and well seasoned pans have always brought back great memories.
Most of my favourites have already been mentioned here, bread, coffee, bacon etc. which immediately come to mind.
Over the christmas period we had a chocolate orange torte on the menu and every time an orange was zested and squeezed it reminded me of this thread, a wonderful fresh aroma which filled the kitchen.
As above. Bacon & bread fight it out for top spot. Sauteeing onions & garlic are locked in battle in the next tier. Wide open after that, though I'll vote for apples cooking in butter & sugar for a tarte Tatin.
Coffee, though... coffee's got a pretty strong claim...
Another one of those grosses-me-out smells. I guess that synthetic stuff must taste like truffles to a lot of people, but to me it smells (and tastes) like a combo between motor oil and gasoline. I can pretty much tell when one's been opened across the kitchen, because it hits me and I'm mentally transported right to a gas station...
Bacon and onions cooking together, bread baking (Nicko how do you like the Zo? I am thinking of getting the smaller version). Turkey and stuffing slow cooking. BBQ ribs coming off the wood fired pit(hey my Traeger burns wood too).
Yup...I hear ya...good thing I get fresh truffles and let them sit in some quality oil. Assumptions are wonderful, aren't they? ;)
The walk-in cooler on a busy prep day when all the food vapors mash up and hit your nose like a tornado when you swing open the door!
On a side note..I just had the biggest shit eating grin while writing that. walk=ins bring back some REALLY freakin awesome memories...:)

Like most people, I like the smell of bread, bacon, and popcorn, but my very favorite smell is when you accidentally spill a little sugar on a burner and it starts to burn. That smells like cotton candy to me.
