Quest to Identify a Sniff
Tourists to Savannah and the south in general run across a variety of smells that permeate the air. Some sniffs can only be identified by the dealer of such or at times the locals of any given area. The Paper Mill, Sour Soil and Low-Tide are frequent responses to our visiting sniffers.

Then there are stinks in the air that aren't nearly as repulsive. Such as a blooming Magnolia Tree on a breezy afternoon. Sitting on a bench under a Wisteria vine or the mouth watering sniff of fresh ripe peaches at a roadside produce stand.

It is these good sniffs that I have hypothetically captured and vacuum packed to savor later. What I need is a brand name to label them by so I can bottle the stinks up and sell them.

I have a few names, but then again I'm a conditioned Yankee that is used to identifying things such as soda, hoagies, pizza pies and shopping carts. This stink's identity can only be named by a local and thus my quest.

Remove yourselves from the Lysol, Glade Plug-ins, Yankee Candles and FeBreeze fabric fresheners for just a moment. Comment and let me know what you would name a Southern-made company that sells to the world the sniffs of the south?

(I'll announce the winner by Friday, February 2, 2007. )

    This is not easy. How about "The Southern Smells Company" Or " "Amost Magnolia" the company that smells.
