What's your favorite smell? Would someone think your choice was odd? While it's not my favorite, nor would I want a cologne made of the scent, I don't mind the smell of skunk, and I'm not the only one who finds otherwise unpleasant aromas inoffensive. Based on search volume, Michigan's favorite scent is one that some people may find less than desirable or even cause for emergency action.

What's That Smell? Michigander's Favorite Aroma May Surprise You

Before we look at Michigan's favorite smells based on search volume, it's important to remember that 'favorite' is a subjective term. For instance, I love the smell of burning leaves. If you're lighting a pile on fire and I happen to drive by, rest assured, I will be rolling down my window to get a snout-full of smoke. My wife isn't a fan of this seasonal aroma, so I must resist the urge to inhaul burned leaves when she's along for the ride.
