When I think of the islands, I can smell that certain sea scent that permeates the thick air.

The smell when getting off the airplane on STX is what I always look forward to. Nothing like it.

I never missed the seasons and have been in a tropical climate for 10+ years. Namely because that little chill in the autumn air is the first hint that 6 months of misery (snow, slush, cold) are ahead.

I LOVE winter............in the Virgin Islands, cool and breezy nights and no paying WAPA for A/C!

I am a very 'olfactory' kind of guy. For several years I lived in the Sierra/Nevada Mountains in northern California. I loved the pine smell and cold winter smell, I can still remember it in my mind. Thirty feet of annual snowfall has a life of it's own.

I will never forget the first time I got off an airplane in the tropics. It was almost 30 years ago and I knew that I was home. That first smell of the tropics was in Ocho Rios in Jamaica. It was followed by a trip to St Croix just after Hugo in 1990. Nothing has been the same since.

Yeah. I know the smell you mean. Every year when I'm forced to come back here to work, I think, yep, here I am, back in hell.

The smell of the burning landfill and Hovensa was indeed a welcome to the island treat - perhaps Hovensa will smell less now

Yeah, but there's always Diageo which, the other day, smelled worse than I've ever experienced the refinery.
