                 Home – simple four letters which reminds whole kind of things.  It’s easy with english but in polish we have the same word for house and home.
Smell of newborn baby, fresh cutted grass, pie which was just taken from oven.
But also smell of your uncle’s cigarettes, favorite pencils, smelly odour of your beloved grandma’s olfashioned perfumes.
All those things which connect you with your home wherever you are.
