Paranormal Odors

As many of you know, I tend not to have “experiences” with the paranormal entities that might be around us, but I think that is changing… Over the last couple of years, I think have had 2 or 3 encounters.

The most recent one was in August when my husband and I were staying at an ocean front inn here in Maine. It was an older home, with small rooms and a shared bath.

We checked in, enjoyed dinner and, as we had an early morning planned, turned in early. It was a beautiful summer evening, so we had the windows wide open to the fresh salt water breezes.

About 3:00 in the morning I was awakened by a very strong smell. It was almost cloying; a very sweet perfumy smell. It was most noticeable right in the middle of the bed! I smelled the comforter, pillows, blankets, but it was not any of those. I rolled over toward the outside edge and it was a bit less annoying.

I was awakened again around 5:00 in the morning by the same strong odor. I was so puzzled because all I should have been smelling was the fresh ocean air.

When I was telling my husband about it in the morning, he said he didn’t notice it all, but we wondered if it might have been a previous resident of the room. I was very vocal about how unpleasant it was and that I hoped it/she did not come again that night. I think she heard me, for we were not disturbed that night.

I have heard many different stories of smells associated with the paranormal; cigarette smoke, pipe smoke, perfume, lotion, even toast and bacon! I’d love to hear your experiences…

    Sometimes you have to tell a spirit to leave you alone. Not all listen though! Only those respectful to us do.

    I also have had several experiences with aromas associated with those that have passed. Usually the scent is very strong until I realize who it is and then it gradually fades away. Sometimes it repeats another day but usually not. I’ve smelled my husband’s Old Spice, my mother-in-law’s rose perfume, a spirit’s lavender perfume on a ghost walk, and even the smell of sickness that was around a beloved dog before it passed on. No one else could smell these odors when they happened.
