As part of a recent survey, Barratt Homes asked 2,000 Brits to name the smells they found most welcoming. Here are the results – a countdown of the five odours that make us feel most at home.
5. Fried breakfast
Because grease makes a house a home – especially in you live in a high street caff.
4. Pasta and pesto
The scent of authentic Italian cuisine. Also, a shade easier to make than beans on toast.
Because, secretly, we’d all love to go round Mary Berry’s gaff for tea and cake.
Undeniably, freshly ground coffee smells like heaven. Though that might be our addiction talking.
1. A roast dinner
A chicken that’s spent a few hours in the oven is a beautiful thing. It’s still not Nando’s, though.
