A Vision-Sense of Smell

Sweet Aroma Sense

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Last night I had a strong vision (sense of smell).  In fact it was so strong and intense that it woke me up from a dream.  I smelled a very strong and sweet aroma which would last each time for just a second or two.  But the funny thing is that I still smell it even as I am writing this post.  It is not a lingering smell, like I said it only lasts for a second or two, however it keeps happening.

I wrote this last night about 20 minutes after first smelling the aroma, as I wanted to remember it before it faded, however it never did!

“8 September, 2014, 12:14 am

I awoke smelling a very sweet aroma, continued to smell at 12:34 am as I am writing this.  The smells only lasts for one or two seconds each time.  Maybe 15 times or more so far.  Very real, not a dream.  The smell woke me up, then I sensed angels in the room.  I was then wide awake.  The smells continued.

Very sweet and pleasant aroma, like toasted s’mores combined with cotton candy, that’s the only way to describe it.

I began to pray and worship God, listening for His quiet voice to speak to me.  Then I thought that I should write this down while it is fresh in my mind.”

I have never had this experience before, not with the sense of smell.  I feel that for some reason there are angels in my presence and they want me to know it.

Many people may not believe what I am saying to be true, or that maybe the smell is coming from someone cooking, or a candle, etc.  Believe me I have thought about all those things myself.  But this was late at night, no one cooking, I have no candles in my room, no sweet scents around me.  I am a single man, what would I be doing with sweet-scented candles in my room?!  And I continue to have the smells.

Has anyone one else reading this ever had a similar experience?  I know that the bible speaks of the aroma of life, and the fragrance of Christ, of pleasing aromas to the Lord.

2 Corinthians 2:15-16

“15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?”

Philippians 4:18

“But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.”

The old testament speaks often of fragrant and soothing aromas to the Lord.

Ezekiel 20:41

“As a soothing aroma I will accept you when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will prove Myself holy among you in the sight of the nations.”

The Lord works in mysterious ways, I know this to be true.  I pray for the Lord to make known to me, to give me understanding and insight into this vision-sense that I am having.  I give Him thanks, praise, worship and glory.  Amen

If anyone reading this has had a similar experience or knows anything about this please leave a comment.  I don’t believe that I am the only one ever experiencing such a thing.  I am not into searching through “new age” websites or anything not biblical or of God.  So please do not leave comments which are not of the Lord.

Thank you, God Bless!

  1. Hola brother Gordon,i’m always checking this webpage of yours since i find it very interesting and Godly.
    The times we are living now are very stress-full but at the same time we have that peace that surpasses all understanding like the bible teaches us.Also i like to mention that the Lord is given us the true believers more understanding of his word and also visions and in your case the smelling experience that you when threw last night and i find it very awesome.
    I’ been having visions like what i think or describe as a shower of blessing when i was sleeping and felt His Glorious presence too.
    Anyway i think in these final days on this earth that are becoming more evil everyday He is also giving us more of his love and favor so we can stay closer to him in the time of tribulations that the regular person is going threw.
    Keep posting good articles and The Lord bless you.

  2. Thank you for your comments brother! It may well be that the Lord is just letting me know that He is with me and giving me comfort. I have was filled (anointed) with the Holy Spirit about 2 years ago, and it was the most magnificent feeling that I have ever had. The love, joy, and peace that I felt was immeasurable. Heaven must be so much better than even that!

    It’s good to hear of other believers experiencing similar situations. I agree that the closer we get to Christ’s return, the more experiences like this true believers will have.

    God Bless my friend.

  3. Hi,
    I just want to share that I too have smelled a sweet aroma at times since the time I got saved.First time I was sharing my faith with my mom regarding story of Abraham.Also at other times it would seem that the Lord has come to meet me and is waiting like once on a Sabbath day as to call me to Him.That time I had not had the idea to keep othe Sabbath.Many other times due to lack of faith,I would keep smelling things around me,like my husband’s shaving cream,face powder bottles etc. and would find no equivalent.Also recently,early in morning I felt the Lord knocking on (my heart’s door?).I woke up and was urged to get up and pray but then fell asleep.After a while I heard the sound of a whip.I was able to discern and believe all this only recently when He is strengthening my belief more and more.
    I keep looking every day to your updates and gather much information and thank the Lord for it but then again believe it is all only to lead us more into prayer.God bless.

  4. Thank you for your comments Nithya! It is very encouraging to me to hear of other believers who have also smelled sweet aromas. I can only describe the smell as I have, however it does smell much better than that. As I matter of fact, I am still smelling them, even as I write this reply to you.

    God is good and He does work in mysterious ways. Thank you for following this blog, (I would say my blog, but it is God’s blog).

    God Bless my friend!

  5. Hi brother Gordon.
    Blessed be the name of The Lord. It’s a Mystry being in the presence of The Lord. All sorts of things happens there ( good amazing things), which can only be understood by the chosen ones. Remember when The Lord told the disciples that “I HAVE FOOD I EAT THAT YOU KNOW NOT ‘ in the first chapters of the of brother John. The Lord Himself is the FATHER ‘s Sweet Smell Aroma also the prayers of the Rightious are like sweet Aromas before their Father God. So it ‘s awesome to experience such presence of The Lord in your sense of smell. We must experience The Lord in all the senses He has given us even in this tribulation moments. I whole believe The Lord is on the way. And there’re will be such a sweet aroma smell during the time if rapture, I sense that.
    Blessings always.

  6. Thank you for your comment sister Sarah!
    I woke up tonight at 2:30 am for some reason, so I prayed and worshiped God. I did not have the smell of aroma tonight, however I did feel His presence. It makes me treasure the time when I did smell His aroma! I now know how special and awesome that it was. I believe that the angels of the Lord were around me. I know that the Lord allowed me to smell the aroma for a reason, I’m just not sure yet just what that is, but I feel that things are changing quickly in the world. I sense much more disaster in the world very soon, and I fear for the lost who will not heed the call of the Lord. We must pray for them.
    God bless Sarah!

  7. How awesome is Our Lord! Letting us know His presences with pleasant smells, thoughts, a feeling of angels around us, an awareness that only those who truly believe can feel, sense. I myself sometimes felt a warm hug around me especially when reading His word, stopping to praise and thank Him for that assurance of His presence. You feel deep happiness, a giant smile on your face for the pure joy it brings. When we need Him the most He is there. These sweet feelings, aromas, angels around us are to let us know He is always there for us, with us in every situation we find ourselves in. As the world is in chaos He wants us to know WE are NOT of this world (although in it). Keeping Him always in front of us as our guide in these terrible times we are facing, will make our life here more bearable till He takes us home. Praise be His name! Thank you Jesus for your many blessings! Amen.

  8. Thank you for sharing your experiences SweetJava. It’s always encouraging to know others have sensed similar things regarding the Lord. It was truly amazing and awesome, I was never for a moment afraid or in fear. I actually felt good, safe, protected, comforted and at peace. Praise the Lord, all the glory to God! Amen
    God Bless SweetJava!

  9. I too have had a couple of experiences where I have been unable to smell anything. then out of the blue I smell this beautiful scent that I can’t explain and wondered if it was the presence of the Holy Spirit. I had such a feeling of peace and joy with this smell. It didn’t last long. perhaps a minute or so. Oh my. I’m smelling something while I’m writing this!

  10. Hello Alana. It’s very encouraging and a blessing for me to hear from other believers with similar experiences. God is good, and I believe that He is making us more aware of His presence in these end times!
    God Bless sister!

  11. This post is amazing. This just happened to me a couple of times in the last few weeks. I shrugged it off because I thought I was just smelling things. But it would only last for like one or two seconds. And it was an extremely sweet unknown aroma. All of this happened while I was just crying out to him praying and reading.

    I also heard someone call my name while falling asleep trying to read 1 Samuel. My reply was “yes Lord” lol I felt the urge to keep pressing and to continue reading and minutes later I came to the part where God was calling Samuel and he thought it was Eli. I immediately started to weep. And on top of all that these things always happens early in the morning when I can’t sleep. Thank you for these scripture references.

    Oh ps. God gives me extremely vivid dreams every night, most nights I’ll get anywhere between 3-6 dreams.

  12. That’s awesome Stephen! It’s really good to hear of other believers who have experienced the same thing. It has happened to me one time again recently since then, however, it was not as intense and did not last that long.

    I also get very real dreams. Sometimes I remember them completely, and other times I don’t. God is definitely speaking to His children.

    God Bless!

  13. O smelled aroma when my daddy was in care of hospes..that later day my daf passes away

  14. Hi Gordon, I too have smelled an aroma but on this occasion it was the smell of a very sweet Jasmine. It happened after church. I had just finished leading the communion for the first time. After church I walked outside and smelt the most beautiful Jasmine smell only for a few moments. I asked the other people around if they could smell it but they said they could not. I went for a walk around the church to see if there was a Jasmine bush but no there was not.

  15. Hi Gordon,
    I am Nikhil from India. I follow hinduism. I respect and follow Christ as a Guru but I know least about bible.
    Let me come to the point. I am experiencing the same from yesterday night.. I was doing night shift. Initially I thought some perfume smell in the office.. I left office.. Later the smell continued.. I ignored again.. And then I could feel the same smell in my car.. Thought it might be from the car air freshener.. Again I ignored..
    Right now I am on my bed n experiencing the same smell again.. Thought to google wat exactly does it indicates.. Good/bad.. And then found ur blog about the same..
    Thought to share it with u.


  16. Hello Nikhil. I respect your will to follow hinduism, however there is only one way to heaven. And that way is by believing that Jesus Christ is God, that He came into this world in the flesh. That He gave His life by being crucified on the cross, shedding His blood to cover the sins of everyone! He was buried in a tomb for 3 days, He arose from the dead, then ascended into heaven to be with Father God.

    Jesus Christ is not a Guru Nikhil, He is God! God is composed of God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and the Holy Spirit who lives in all believers. He is a trinity, yet one.

    You had this vision for a reason Nikhil. God gave it to you. You came to this sight for a reason Nikhil, not by chance! Jesus Christ is speaking to you now through me. He is letting you know that He is the way, the only way. He is asking you to believe this and to accept Him as your Savior. Will you do it, or will you turn away from Him? This is your choice, the most important choice you will ever make.

    We are living in the end times, Jesus Christ will be returning soon for His church. The world will get very ugly, very soon. Jesus is giving many unbelievers visions and dreams of the truth. Many shall choose to believe, yet many more will not.

    Don’t ignore the call of God, like you ignored the “vision-sense of smell” Nikhil. Listen to what the Lord is telling you.

    Read more on how to get saved Nikhil, click on these links: Would you like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior?

    “Get Saved”

    God loves you more than you will ever know, I love you! God bless Nikhil!

  17. Just was doing scripture reading while in bed and strong sense of a sweet perfume but I sensed l was not smelling it with my nose…. I don’t know what it means. so put it into Google and read your words…. still stumped but I was reading about Jeremiah prophesying and I feel that maybe I should be using this…. gift… um… don’t know I’m also very not keen to get carried away or into new age stuff… like Jeremiah and the false prophets… determined to proclaim nothing unless it is definitely the word of God.

  18. Thanks for your comment niki!

    Smelling the sweet aroma of God is not prophesying, but is God communicating with us.

    Ephesians 5:1-2
    “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

    Enjoy what the Lord gives, experience the goodness of God, and be blessed with what and how He communicates with you! Not all will have the same experience with Him, and very few that I know of have had the privilege to share in this experience!

    God bless niki!

  19. This happened to me today November 13, 2015 at 3 am and its now 5:39 am I woke up to perfume also

  20. Thanks for sharing Kristi!

    It’s amazing just how many other people have also had this “Vision-Sense” of God via smell. I have had the sense several other times since this first experience. I know that God is with me!

    God bless!

  21. Hello, just came across your site..I was looking for something in reference to what I experienced early this morning while sleeping around 3:00 am..I was awakened by an aromathat smelled like beautiful perfume but so pleasant…like perfect..ne c.f. er smelled anything like that before. I was so sleepy that I could only wake up smelling it wondering what that was and fell right back to sleep. I do believe it was from our Lord Jesus Christ because usually I get dreams..or hear scripture in an inaudible voice. .just knowing…this is the first time I ever experienced the smelling of fragrance. ..

  22. Wow, this is why I’m searching this subject. This morning, IDK what time, still dark, I woke up to a really sweet smell, I sleep with a cpap machine that shoots air into my nostrils, the smell was so strong that it woke me from a dead sleep and at that moment I tried to figure out what it was, then just like that it went away, about 10 seconds, I have no candles, nothing at all that would produce that smell. Then come to think of it, 2 days ago I was sitting at my desk, afternoon, then I smell something like foot odor, for about 5 mins, I smelled everything including shoes and arm pits, it was driving me crazy, nothing even remotely had that smell in my room, and once again, just like that it went away.

  23. Thanks for your comment Rico!

    It’s amazing how God often communicates with us, through dreams and visions, His written word, through other people, by signs, and even by smells! I believe that the Lord is speaking to you, maybe He is making you aware of His presence or trying to communicate something to you. The foot odor on the other hand, I’m not sure what that is, maybe the smell of a bad spirit, I’m not sure. But I do know that the smell of God is so very sweet!

    In any event, the Lord is speaking to us, trying to tell us something or just letting us know that He is with us and we should not fear. We should pray to God and ask Him just what it is He is trying to tell us.

    God bless Rico! Maranatha!

  24. I just don’t see verses in the bible to back this up, I don’t see anywhere in the NT where either the disciples smelled smells or told us about it…… the 3 verses you quote above have nothing to do with smelling scents…..

  25. I smelled the sweet aroma last night in the middle of the night. It gave me extreme peace. I hope it happens again. I googled and found this page. This gives me peace as well. I have no doubt it was a heavenly message.

  26. Thank you so much for your comment Deb!

    I have received some negative feedback from believers who say that this was not from God since the bible doesn’t say that we should experience these things. However, I have experienced this and much more from God, I know that it was from God.

    Our relationships with God are “personal” experiences, and not all of us will experience all of the same things. God is good, and He will give us experiences which we can sense with not only our spirit, but also with our physical senses! This means touch, sound, taste, vision, and smell.

    My experience of smelling God’s presence was very real! God Himself was telling me not to worry, that He is with me, and that I need to be aware of His presence.

    God bless my friend! Maranatha!

  27. 3am twice last saturday and sunday wake up and smell sweet aroma with in 2 to 4 sec. Its gone! i just google the meaning and find this, i dont know whats the meaning of that but i always believed that God and his angels are always there for us! God Bless us all!

  28. Gordon, when I was young Christian, very fervent, hungry and on fire for God. I spent my quite time few hours, worship, praise, prayer and reading His words. I was filled with river of peace, joy, filled with His presence every moment of my life. I even had aroma sweet incense smell. At first I did not know what it was. It was one day, a servant at the pulpit asked who ever experience the sweet aroma smell than I realised it was the presence of God. God was very pleased with me because I walked with HIm daily without ceasing. I even ever felt Jesus was beside me all the day long. Mind desired for Him grew and grew, thirst and thirst for His righteousness. So Gordon, I believe you love God and please Him and therefore His ;presence is with HIm. Bro, don’t stop loving, walking, fellowship and relationship with Jesus. He is real and nothing in this world can compare with Him. No one can give this peace, joy and fill with His presence except Jesus. Amen!

  29. Thank you for your comment Elice!

    I have had scoffers, even so-called believers in Jesus tell me that what I have experienced is not from God. They tell me that it is not scriptural, yet I disagree! And if so many believers have had the same experience of God, then how can they deny it?!

    God is good, and He makes His presence known in many ways! I never before heard of believers having this aroma sense of God before, not until I had it!

    I often pray for the Lord to make His presence known to me, and He does in one way or another. It’s not always the same for each believer.

    It’s fascinating to hear your experience of the same thing, and then to hear that someone in the pulpit actually asked the question “Who has ever experienced the sweet aroma sense?” Wow!

    Thank you for your encouragement Elice!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  30. This is such a confirmation for me. Thank you! This morning as I was sleeeping a sweet smell woke me up. I was thinking oh my this smells so good what is that. And there’s is no way it’s coming from perfume or candles etc. My room mate is a man and he is gone for the week. When I smelled the aroma I ddint fully wake up. It made me feel comforted and I kinda just fell back asleep and continued this pattern for an hour or so. When I woke up I decided to do some research and found your page. I’ve always been very sensitive to the spirit and whays going on around me in the spirtual realm. But this is something totally new!

  31. I have this aroma often- especially in difficult times I was amazed at first, because the aroma becomes so strong – it’s unbelievable! At first, I thought there might be something in my bedroom similar to this smell, but there was nothing that could spread this aroma ! Then, because of the fact that I have most definitely been touched by an Angel on two previous occasions, while lying in my bed at night, trying to work through a crisis, I suddenly relized that these aromas was visits from Angels How unbelievable wonderful are the ways of our Lord! I am a very sensitive person and from childhood I always made jokes about my very strong six’th sense I try to live very close to Jesus Christ, and I praise him in abundance to have send me your message this morning What a joyful thought to know there are more peple experiencing this! Praise the Lord for intervening in our lives in this way! Elma Coetzee

  32. Praise the Lord for receiving this message today! I did send my reply, but cannot see it here, I will now reply again, because I want to make sure my message reaches you! I experience these aromas often at night, roudabout 09h00 when I am lying in bed for about 30 minutes or more At first I started looking around, trying to figure out where it could come from There was nothing around that could cause this very sweet strong smell Then I realized, being touched by an Angel twice before in a crisis situation in a very comforting way, that there were Angels in my bedroom, each and every time I experience these aromas In my case, – it is such a strong sweet, smell and it lingers sometimes for 30 minutes or more- (as if the Lord wants me to comprehend ‘this is Me, I am with you and I have a message for you’)! I am a very sensitive person and ever since childhood always made jokes about my ‘ six’th sense’ How amazing for me to know that the Lord visits more people in this way ! I have a whole testamony about my experiences, but it is a long story! I just want to praise the Lord for sending me this message this morning How blessed are we that the Lord intervenes with us in such a wonderful way!

  33. Thank you Alexis!

    God is good and He does speak to us in many ways. This vision sense of smell is very real, and apparently I am not the only one experiencing this! Praise the Lord! The smell of God is so very sweet and comforting, this I know.

    God bless!

  34. Thank you for sharing your experience with us Elma!

    When I had this vision sense of smell, I also felt the presence of angels! Our experiences are very similar.

    And I also am a very sensitive person, I have been all of my life. In many ways it has been a blessing, and at other times it seems like a curse! Many people tell me that I am just too sensitive, that I need to get a thicker skin. However, I would rather be sensitive than to not be able to sense things like I do! I am sensitive to people around me, to how they feel, to the world around me, and to what is not seen.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  35. I was in a hotel hallway and smelled cotton candy so strong, then it was gone after a few min didnt think much of it thought wow someobes making cotten candy ….went about my business … the next night i awoken at home late at night with that same strong smell after a min it was gone , but i know that smell same as the hotel cotton candy smell in the hall

  36. During this lent season, I have had several aromas, from sweet, to urine…smell. Some of the smells are so bad they burn your eyes, or so strong you have to leave the house. (The urine smell is so strong, it is like a horse barn smell.
    I have always had little things happen, on a regular bases, but not like this. Wondering why??? the aroma is around.
    I know some of my aromas. my dad, my Aunt, and my mother. But, these I can’t understand.
    Shirley Livingston

  37. Thanks for sharing Shirley!

    At times some of us are sensitive to smells, smells of which there is no natural explanation for it. I believe that at many times these are the presence of good and evil spirits, and at other times of God Himself! And there may even be other explanations, perhaps these bad smells could be warning us of something or someone with evil intentions.

    God bless!

  38. About 3 weeks ago my sister was awoken from sleep by the smell of freshly brewed coffee at around 3:00 am in the morning. No one in the house was awake except her and she said it smelled like it was being brewed right next to her. She sequentially went back to sleep but she was excited to tell me about it the next morning. I just wrote it off as a dream and didn’t think mush about it after that. But my sister swore it was angels trying to communicate with her.

    Well, last night I was awoken from sleep by this intense by sweet smell at around 3:00 am. I’m a single man with no candles or anything that would produce a sweet smell and I own nothing even remotely close that could produce the intensity of the sweet odor that I experienced last night. When I awoke I was not frightened or concerned. I was very relaxed and felt very at ease. So much so that that I fell right back asleep within a minute or so.

    The first thing I did when I awoke this morning was call my sister to tell her. We both know that the Lord or angles are trying to communicate with us but we both are still not sure what the message is. Maybe as simple as saying “I’m here. I will never desert you.” or maybe something more. But this was a first for both my sister and I. This is what drove me to search the web to see if anyone else had experienced this. I’m very glad to have discovered your web site. Thank you and God Bless.

  39. Thanks for sharing this experience with us Kerry!

    I believe that the closer we get to the return of Christ, the LORD will be speaking to His children in many ways such as this. I also believe that there are reasons for this, some of which are to increase our faith, to stand firm in our faith, and to let us know that He is with us! Perhaps another reason is so that we share these experiences of God with others.

    God bless!

  40. I had a similar experience at my cousin’s grave a couple of years ago. Let me start by saying that in the years previous to my visit, there had been a couple of unexplained happenings at his grave. One, a policeman talked to my aunt, the mother of my cousin, letting her know he was always there watching. She was grieving because my cousin’s ex-wife had been defacing his grave. This policeman told my aunt it would not happen again and it didn’t. She called to thank him but no such person existed with his name. Second, on his birthday, she and some relatives took some ballons. They were tied together in a knot and being held in my aunt’s hand but while they were not looking one escaped. A blue one, his favorite color. So at my and my mom’s visit a couple of years later something else happened. We went near Christmas for my aunt because she couldn’t go due to being in poor health and dying. We took flowers she had and drove in snow to decorate his grave. While we were there I smelled the most wonderful fragrance! It was a smell I could only describe as an expensive men’s cologne. It was like someone had walked by me and I smelled them as they passed. There was no one there but us. We still talk about it to this day everytime we go. I can only imagine what it was that walked near us but it gives me chills everytime I think about it! By the way, my aunt has since joined her son in Heaven.

  41. Hi, someone at my office the other day was talking about smelling burnt toast being an indication of possible stroke? Made me think about the sweet smelling aroma I often smell. It comes from out of nowhere and it reminds me of God. I can’t identify anything particular happening when it comes, only hat it comes from out of nowhere. It is not like I know what God smells like or anything, but every time I smell that sweet beautiful aroma it makes me think of God. I worried for a bit after the burnt toast topic that maybe it was something else so I went searching the web and found this website. I can’t explain it, I don’t understand it, I just know it makes me think of God and I thank God for it and it makes me feel like I am wrapped securely in His arms. It’s like a big hug from God for me. What makes this all the more interesting is that I have no natural sense of smell. Can’t smell a thing except when this beautiful aroma comes my way. I can’t smell it all the time, but sometimes it lasts for days and other times only a few minutes.

  42. Thanks for sharing Smab!

    You know scripture tells us that Jesus being sacrificed was a sweet smelling aroma to God the Father.

    Ephesians 5:2

    “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

    God bless!

  43. Just woke up the a similar smell, but with little bit of lavender and lemon on top of that sweet smell of s’mores and cotton candy. It’s kinda like the smell and feeling of the heat that the s’mores and cotton candy give off when they are just made.

  44. Yes, thank you I have been having the same experience. I can’t describe the sweet smell, like you said it only last for a few seconds. I was reading the word when it happen and sometimes when I wake in the middle of the night I might smell it. Each Tim it has happen I was fasting. It is wonderful! Blessings.

  45. Yes!! I have been experiencing the same sweet aroma after i was baptized in the of Jesus Christ in 2013! It happens to me very often when I give myself away praying and praising the Lord at church. In the beginning I thought it was a perfume from someone else but one time I prayed for so long before going to bed and I felt the same aroma! After that, it happens to me very often. Is like the Lord telling me “I am with you, keep it up”
    Wow…I really thought that It was me or that I had a very sensitive nose or something else, but I see Im not the only one!! Praise the Lord! Thank you for sharing your testimonies! God bless you! 😊

  46. Hi I myself have experienced Heveanly aromas on multiple occasions. It is always an aroma of sweet perfume and I am always alone when it happens. What a blessing coming from the Lord.

  47. Thanks for sharing Ervin!

    Wow, I wish that I could say that it happened to me all the time, but unfortunately it doesn’t.

    God bless!

  48. I smelled the sweet aroma last night, it woke me up from a dead sleep. I thought I lefted something on stove etc. Nope nothing like that. We smell cigarette smoke from time to time, my father in law died in 2004 and he was a smoker and we think he near when we smell the smoke .

  49. Thanks for sharing Amy!

    Not all have experienced this smell which emanates from God, yet many have and do. We can, as you have pointed out, smell things which remind us loved ones who have passed on.

    God bless!

  50. me too,while im listening a worship song ,i smell the aroma of a candle its only maybe 10to 20seconds.maybe God wants to reveal something

  51. I had it in garden in bedroom and just now as I was. Owing in front door

  52. I have experienced the sweet aroma quite often as well.. You are absolutely correct with it lasting a few seconds.. Sometimes it is a mixture of different sweet aromas. I found it quite strange but ultimately realized it was beyond human understanding because no one else experienced this. I realized it was a spiritual gift that is opening a new way of communicating to me. I never thought about asking my Creator what it meant but this is prompting me to inquire. I would often tell my good friend of these sweet aromas and she led me to this site. Now I don’t feel strange but rather called upon. Recently I was driving and experienced the sweet smell of butterscotch that lasted about 3 seconds. I took a deep breath to inhale more of it and the smell lasted another 3 seconds then faded away. Blessings to you!

  53. I have been smelling something for about 3 weeks now can’t explain it but it’s a beautiful smell I can’t describe it but it comes and goes, it’s not with me long though. The first time about three weeks ago I was sitting in church and smelled it and has happened frequently since then, I just know it’s from God but I don’t know why or what it is.

  54. I did experience this time to time. Years or months apart, didn’t really bother much about it thinking that it has something to do with my sinus. But even while I’m writing this I do get this fragrance which lasts just couple of seconds or so. It travels with me every where I go. It’s been about 5 days now. I have checked all my fragrances n nothing seem to match it.

  55. Its 1030 am and I’m at work and I keep smelling a cotton candy sent i literally walked up 2 each of my co workers to smell them to see if it was them mind u they are all men and im a female. We work outside so i kept looking around 2 see if there was candy on the floor or some sweet smelling fruits NOTHING so as im smelling it again 4 about the 10 th time and googled it and came across ur post THANK U

  56. For two days every few min I can smell a putrid odour no one else smells it I can feel my throat getting this thick feeling this also woke me out of sleep concerned

  57. I was praying this morning and suddenly I get the smell of strong urine, I didnt know why or what it meant however I continued to pray.
    This has never happen to me before, would be nice if someone can tell me why?

  58. Thanks for sharing Yolanda!

    Perhaps someone is attempting to keep you from praying. Keep praying and ask the good Lord for guidance and understanding.

    God bless!

  59. The other day I woke up to the sweetest aroma, like jasmine and honeysuckles. It was only for a few seconds. I fell asleep and woke up to it one more time! I have been getting stronger in my relationship with Christ. I feel like it was a smell from heaven, or of God. It was the most beautiful scent! I pray it happens again!

  60. Thanks for sharing Anonymous!

    It’s a wonderful experience, one which we should cherish. The good Lord has His ways in which He communes with His children, ways to show approval, and to give us comfort, peace, and increased faith!

    God bless!

  61. But Gordon, if you cant give any examples of smells through God’s word then how are you doing “new” things outside of His word? If you have no examples then these scents which are spiritual is nature have to come from somewhere else….. we can Only know about these things which are beyond us as human’s through the word which is our blueprint for what is right and wrong.

    Let us reason together

  62. Gordon you said: there is only one way to heaven. And that way is by believing that Jesus Christ is God, that He came into this world in the flesh. That He gave His life by being crucified on the cross, shedding His blood to cover the sins of everyone! He was buried in a tomb for 3 days, He arose from the dead, then ascended into heaven to be with Father God.

    No where does the word say this… the simply believe on his name After hearing the word…… I know every church I had ever gone to says what you said but, it was Never done by Christ or Paul….. you tell them the gospel and either they believe by hearing or they dont which has Nothing to do with repeating words….. with respect…

  63. Yes. You described exactly what I myself have smelled, s’mores and cotton candy. This comes after praying or thinking of GOD.

  64. Thanks for your comment Truth be told.

    I did give examples, did you not read all of the post or comments?

    Ephesians 5:1-2
    “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

    Scripture speaks of sweet smelling aromas throughout. God speaks to us in many ways, does the bible say that He will speak to us audibly? No, yet He most definitely could! He is God, He can do anything that He wants to, He is Almighty, All Powerful, and Sovereign over the universe!

    God bless!

  65. Thanks for your comment Truth be told!

    The scriptures most definitely do say this! Believe in your heart! This also means to repent for even the demons believe, but they are not saved! And if you do not believe that Jesus is God nor do you have a change of heart, then you will not be saved either! It’s not merely believing that Jesus is God or the way.
    Acts 3:19
    “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”

    Luke 13:3
    “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

    A person can believe that Jesus is God and repent of his or her sins and be saved. Yet, we must know how and why this happened. We must know that it is through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ that we are saved, not by our works but through a blood covenant with God Almighty! This is the gospel message, the good news! We are saved by the blood of Christ, nothing more, nothing less.

    God bless!

  66. Hello Gordon, my name is Teri. I too experienced an encounter with the Lord or possibly angels concerning aroma. On last Saturday, I was walking home and I fell down and skinned my knee. At first I was upset because I always ask my angels (Psalm 91 says we have Angels plural) to come with me and keep me from dashing my foot etc and keep me upright. They always do. After I fell, I was kinda upset and said well maybe I don’t even have angels. Then I immediately repented and apologized because I know I do, they have helped me before. I had a tissue in my hand as I had cried some and about halfway home all of a sudden very strong, I smelled my absolute favorite perfume and it is my favorite smell in the whole world. I have never been able to find this perfume ever and have loved it since I was 5 years old. I continued to smell it all the way home which was several blocks. I just kept breathing it in deeply. When I went into the house I no longer smelled it. I am very close to the Lord and He has called me by my name twice. The Holy Spirit is my best friend and I have had a few visions. The Lord has spoken to me other times too but the thing with the smell I don’t understand. I can’t find a parallel in scripture, Him sending us a smell. It was a blessing I jst wish He would tell me what it meant! God bless you and see you in the air!

  67. Thank you for sharing Teri!

    Many people say that God does not do anything if it is not written in scripture! I disagree wholeheartedly. He is God, He can do anything! And of course we read throughout the scriptures about our prayers and Christ Himself being a sweet smelling aroma to our Father in heaven.

    The good Lord speaks to us in many ways, why not also through smells?!

    Here are some verses from scripture speaking about fragrance and aromas.

    2 Corinthians 2:14-16
    “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?”

    Ephesians 5:2
    “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

    Philippians 4:18
    “Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.”

    God bless! Maranatha!

  68. I just awoke from a very sweet smell . i is very scary but calming at the same time.. Really confused

  69. I have been experiencing smells/aromas for the past year or two. Some being cigarette smoke…but i dont smoke and i live alone. It reminded me of my Mom and Dad , who both smoked and are gone. Gosh i loved them so incredibly deeply!! And the, most recently, I smelled cotton candy. It smelled so sweet and savory. I wanted to keep sniffing and sniffing. I hadn’t considered that it was or could be the aroma of God?! I am a believer…though sometimes I think I’m alone in this “journey “. It is soo soothing to read your website. Thank you for sharing. janetgirlie@yahoo.com

  70. I have experienced the same thing!!! I believe it is heaven sent! I smell it many times a day! Awesome smell, so relaxing, like something baking in the kitchen. Makes me aware of God’s presence. I know God is doing great things, the time is so close to His return. So glad I found your message. Please let me know if you are still smelling scent!

  72. This happen to me in church today it was a sweet fragrance ( almost like Jasmin and honey) I was in deep worship I have smelt it off and on since this afternoon service .was this a similar situation to u ? Thanks God bless you

  73. Hello my names julie I too kept smelling flowers have been reading gospels five years. Yesterday was saddened by rory and joely she lost her fight against cancer. I was on the bus and I kept smelling lavendar also got led to a song in the arms of an angel. I started singing the chorus they are around us strengthening us. God’s love is mysterious and manifests in ways to give us hope God bless you. My friend is aksoa christian she tells me she often smells the perfume. Intrigued I added a visiting missionary do you smell the perfume. She said yes and felt blessed I’d asked her. May all believers led here today pray for rory a this wife’s passing and may the gospel comfort him. In Jesus name we pray. Amen xxxx

  74. Dear Gordon,
    Shalom and peace be with you. I dont know why but i felt i need to share this with you: I am feeling sick for last few days sibce last sat( i may think i m crazy but it came suddenly, this sickness, fever, cold n bad cough . It was sat morning and i was tidying up my wardrobe n viewing my fb posts n saw a friend trying to get others to go watch a movie “ouja board” with her, i normally do not watch such movies n it was only the clips, i believe evil comes through n takes something away from us n in my case Good health, he likes to steal and accuse. To cut it short, inwas in bed weak n feverish reading my psalms and praying. scent of fragrance is a gift from God, its called discernment of spirits for some, its used by christians to understand so that we can smell eventhough we don’t see in the spiritual realm. I smelled talcum powder while on my bed and felt his warmth on my body, temp was down to 37degree n could tell the warmth was like the same type I felt at spiritual healings etc. I never smell talcum powder, it used to be flowers, wine, incence in church ( not a feast day where they need burn incence) . when i smelled flowers, i usually prayfor the spirits to go to the light invoking Jesus’s name n i will often feel the holy spirit move in me after that. which showed me he approves or agree as i m very sensitive to the holy spirit as I am a catechist on sundays and i go for charismatic worship in Roman Catholic church. Continue to pray for God’s wisdom on this gift, as all these gifts equip us to grown in our faith and helps to build us up. God Bless.


  75. No, you are not the only one. I experience 02:30 am 09/07/2016. Good smell of coffee brewing it last 10 or 15 minutes. That’s why I am researching to see what does it really mean biblically.

  76. I have just been out on my sunporch with my Yorkie. I kept on smelling this really sweet smell, unlike anything I have ever smelled. There was no one else out there with me, my mother was asleep in her bed, no scented candles. And it was in just one area! Really strange. I didn’t feel the presence of anything or anyone. I’ve never heard your theory before.

  77. I just had this experience today. I have been feeling very defeated due to some extreme stalking issues. My best friend contacted me last night and told me that the Lord put in on her heart to invite me to church with her this morning. The sermon was amazing and she and I went up to the alter together. I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted. I kept smelling something very sweet and fragrant today with no explanation for it other than an old candle that has been outside for a long while which I’ve never been able to smell before. I also had an experience while praying one time. I was holding a cross in my right hand and felt a tingling sensation go from the top of my head down through my body and my right arm and hand began shaking. It was incredible. I know that the Lord is coming soon. He’s pouring out his spirit. I see and hear about it often. Please Jesus, come soon and save us from this evil world.

  78. Amen and amen! He is coming soon and I think we (all of His) feel it! I smelled my favorite perfume recently. t is a perfume I have never been able to find or buy anywhere. What you felt in your body was either the Holy Spirit or a special anointing. Probably Him though!

  79. I had a similar experience i was on my bed I woke up and a strong aroma came on but I noticed it. Was coming out from right arm I even smelled my arm and it was clearly coming out from there, the interesting thing is that I recognized it was the exact aroma from my sister in Christ and piano students perfume but I hadn’t…. seen my student for a week it was very rare it was around 4:00 a.m. Than I went back to sleep and when I woke up that aroma was gone can anyone help me with this vision ? Thanks Brother for sharing

  80. I was awoken the other night by a very strong smell. It was so strong it stirred my soul to wake up.
    This is a reminder that he is in charge, and he is pleased with us no matter what we are going through. Even though we may have seemed to fail as others would see, we are being called to strengthen each other through His frangrance.

    2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the frangrance of the knowledge of him.

  81. Thank you for sharing Amanda!

    I keep getting responses from believers who have had this same or similar experience. I do believe that the good Lord is speaking to us in many ways, and aroma is just one of them. However, there are believers who do not agree with this and say that it is not biblical, even though I have given them bible verses to substantiate it! I do appreciate you giving me that verse from 2 Corinthians, more evidence of the truth.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  82. Love all of the discussions and grateful that I was woken from my sleep the other night by a smell so strong I could feel my spirit literally stirring within me.
    It’s so nice to have this communion with you all! It’s already been said but..
    Thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. 2 Corinthians 2:14

  83. Thank you Amanda!

    This is so important, the “fragrance of Christ”! We must not believe that this is not the truth nor deny the fact that God does speak to us through aromas. If it were not so then scripture would not be speaking about it and say it wasn’t so! But it is so! Why is it so hard for some believers to believe that it is so?

    God bless! Maranatha!

  84. Thanks Justice!

    We should all take everything we hear and hold it up to the word of God. We need the bible and the good Lord to discern and the good and the bad, and interpret scripture for us.

    God bless!

  85. A few years ago I had lived with my mom. This happened to me in the middle of the night as well, At first I started smelling that sweet smell, I woke up in the middle of the room and as soon as my eyes were open the smell went away.

  86. 9th Oct 2016
    Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus.
    Jehovah Tsuri Elohie Kadem is his Name…
    Today I experienced the sweet fragrance of the presence of God ! I was observing a Fast and Prayers … at about the 9th hour … this Sweet fragrance was coming from a particular spot in the room, it last for a few seconds and I wouldn’t perceive it any more. It happened three times today .. I also remember perceiving it that last time I did 3 days dry fasting , but I discarded it. But today , I downed on me that indeed God was here…God made me to know it ..
    May his mighty Name be praised

  87. Thanks for sharing Obinna!

    We can experience the glory of God through all of our senses, some choose to ignore it, while others cherish it! It’s God’s way of telling us that He loves us and cares about us. Amen

    God bless!

  88. Hey,im Adeline from Malaysia.i had the similar experience like yours.but I felt it’s not an angel presence.i felt it more to the ghostly entity.

  89. Thanks for sharing Adeline!

    Pray for the Lord to bind all evil spirits and powers in your home in the name of Jesus and by His blood. Pray for the Lord’s protection and guidance, pray without ceasing. Look to the word of God for peace and comfort. As long as you are saved, born again, He is always with you!

    God bless!

  90. Yes my mum yesterday 15 th of oct 2016 told me the night before she only slept for a while to 2.30 and the rest of the night she was awake.but she experience a beautiful smell that last only for a few seconds in the room it was so beautiful she she wanted it to last and also a beautiful peace with it . Also it happened on another ocation where she had been praying and had a pain and this smell happen and as the smell left the pain when also .she believes it could have been Chriss Jesus or an angels.

  91. Thanks for sharing Kevin!

    Sometimes the good Lord gives us a taste (or in this case a smell) of His presence. This is only a small glimpse of what it will be like forever in eternity!

    God bless!

  92. Hey 🙂
    I had this experience for the very first time last night! I was deep asleep and all of the sudden I smelled this strong sweet fragrance right next to my bed! It woke me up. I looked around but didn’t see anything! I love Jesus very much and am a very strong believer, anchored in Him!
    anyways it kept Happening within the next minutes! I was so tired though that I didn’t get up and worship Jesus! I am sad about that I didn’t! I kept smelling it while falling back asleep! I was wondering if it is an angel or something of the Lord! It was amazing! I’ve had bad smells happening to me in rooms where no other one was with me or the other one not smelling it and I kind of figured I was smelling a demonic being! It has happened often.
    But this last night was simply amazing! Thanks for sharing your experience! We are suppose to move in the Holy Spirit into the spirit realm and experience Jesus in all the ways of His kingdom! I’ve been praying that Jesus opens my eyes and ears and senses to His spiritual realm! We are meant to work with His angels for His kingdom! Go check out the book “seeing in the spirit” by Michael van Vlymen” or rather his book “angels and demons! Amazing encounters and meant from the Lord! My parents are pastors in Germany and they know this guy personally so he is not a fake and loves Jesus very much!!!

  93. Thank you Mira!

    There are those believers who do not believe that such experiences are from God, I completely disagree! They say that scripture does not substantiate such things, and once again I completely disagree! I for one, such as yourself, have experienced it and I know that it was God!

    God is good and He made us so that we could commune with Him in many ways. And since the fall of many thousands of years ago He has been attempting to communicate with us, but many of us aren’t listening! We must be aware of God’s presence and know that He is with us always! Amen.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  94. It happened to me this morning while I was barely awake, a strong lovely smell. It made my heart stop for a moment in fear asking whos in my house? Where is this coming from? And just like that it faded away. That is why I googled it , to see if anyone else experienced it. Im in awe.

  95. Thanks for sharing Denise!

    The Spirit of the Lord is moving upon the face of the earth, I am not surprised that so many people are experiencing this vision-sense of smell! Before I had this experience myself I never knew that anyone else had such an experience. Praise God!

    God bless!

  96. In the middle of the night, last night, I was awoken two different times because of a very strong smell like perfume. I woke up because it was strong and it was just not normal. We do not have scented candles in our room, etc. I often see angels in the night, but to be woken up by this strong beautiful smell is something new. I have woken up and seen so many different types of angels… usually just for a few seconds and then they are gone… I use to see the enemy as well, but since we anointed our home and our property line, if they do make an appearance, they are outside of our house. It is awesome to know that others of have smelled this too… it must be the fragrance of Christ.

  97. yes today at 5;50 i smell like jaismine it was strong and it was just not normal my house was open, the smell was so strong an fresh. I look around but didn’t see anything from where came the smell is like somebody blow the fragrances on my face it was the first time I smell that fragrances my body began to shake. one thing is sure this is not normal

  98. Hello Brother In Christ Jesus! Last night went to a Christian Comendian (Chanda Pierce) and Singer (Karyn Williams) with some Christian Friends. While Karyn was singing the Holy Spirit touched me . Was very blessed last night. Then this morning woke up to a beautiful aroma the way I describe it was like a bouquet of flowers. This is the second time I have smelled Gods Presents. I feel Blessed and am very Thankful to smell such a wonderful aroma! I do not know why God has allowed me to smell such a beautiful sent. But I feel very Blessed that He Loves me this morning and everyday even when I feel undeserving of such Love. His Love and mercy is Wonderful!!!

  99. Found this from Enoch 24:9
    9And that tree of an agreeable smell, not one of carnal odor, there shall be no power to touch, until the period of the great judgment. When all shall be punished and consumed for ever, this shall be bestowed on the righteous and humble. The fruit of the tree shall be given to the elect. For towards the north life shall be planted in the holy place, towards the habitation of the everlasting King.

    10Then shall they greatly rejoice and exult in the Holy One. The sweet odor shall enter into their bones; and they shall live a long life on the earth as your forefathers have lived; neither in their days shall sorrow, distress, trouble, and punishment afflict them.

    11And I blessed the Lord of glory, the everlasting King, because He has prepared this tree for the saints, formed it, and declared that He would give it to them.

  100. I experienced the sudden smell of roses and carnations while sleeping. I woke up and actually looked around to see if flowers were in the room (maybe my husband surprised me). There were none. I instantly became aware that it was a message from God. I’m praying for discernment.

  101. Amazing! The Lord gave me my favorite perfume which I have never ever been able to find anywhere. I have loved it since I was a child and never found it. He gave it to me after I had fallen down and it lasted all the way home then dissipated! I love Him with all y heart. God bless and thanks for the scripture!

  102. Bless the Lord.I started smelling sweet aroma around me since the past 8 months.it started off with nice cinnamon ,toast. Nice talc powder and undiluted oil or perfume.on few occasions I smelled cider and other demonic spirit as well thsat smells real terrible.in the beginning the sweet aroma was strong and then it was lifted .it is very nice and strong again.I smell this aroma at work.

  103. Hi!!! This same thing happened to me last night!
    I woke from a deep sleep smelling a very sweet floral Womens smelling aroma!!! It was so strong. I felt very much at peace with the smell and once I realized what it was and was wondering where it was coming from… it was gone. I am a Christian and DEFINITLEY believe it was a spirit or angels or possibly…even Gods presence. I am so glad to find your site and read of others experiencing this too! 💗✨I don’t remember any dreams…but know it was someone visiting me for some reason! Bless you all!!! I will post again if it happens!

  104. Thanks for sharing Tara!

    I for one believe that it is the Spirit of God Almighty that you have experienced! The good Lord loves us so very much, and His presence is with us continually. At times He makes Himself known to us, through His word, visions, dreams, signs, other people, and yes even smell! I personally have experienced God in many ways, through His word, in visions, dreams, signs, through other people, through the sense of smell, feeling His presence in me and all around me, fulling enveloping my very being! The Lord is looking over us, His angels surround us, and He seeks to commune with us and to comfort us.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  105. Mary C – i have also smelled coffee- and at other times eucalyptus and a sort of petrol smell. These smells are intense and wake me in the night. I get them about once every 3 months.Have you discovered anything more about what this could be?

  106. Well, I am responding because just last night I had a similar experience and wanted to know if anyone had posted something similar. I not ruling out the possibility of an olfactory hallucination (had a concussion last May).

    I awoke in the middle of the night to a beautiful aroma. It seemed somewhat familiar and comforting yet was unable to determine what or where it was coming from. I looked very throughly throughout the room. Checked the windows (closed).

    Strange, today while driving my new car? I smelled the same aroma. On and off all day, no matter where I go I smell this. Was unaware of any possible spiritual connection until reading some of the posts such as yours.

  107. Thanks for sharing Sara!

    The good Lord often speaks to us through visions, dreams, other people, and yes even smell! It is happening now more than ever because we are nearing His return. The Lord also often speaks to us in the middle of the night, because we are thinking with our heart and not our mind, but there are also less distractions from the world around us.

    God bless!

  108. I had a fragrance smell last night while I was sleep, it woke me up. It was so pleasant I couldn’t understand whetr it came from because I was the only one in the room. Thank you Lord I now I know and I thank those for expressing their feelings and scriptures. I am working on my Christian journey and this is conformation. Thank you Lord for being here and saving me.

  109. I to awaken to the smell of flowers a lavender sent as if they were right beside me, i sat up on the side of the bed and took in the smell, not feeling afraid but calm, and it faded away, I have experienced the same smell over a year ago also, the sent felt more like a presents in the room not a smell in the air, not sure if anyone would understand what I mean, but I will keep my armor of faith around me on this journey through life as I grow in Christ Jesus my lord and savior.

  110. Hi Gordon,
    Yes, I have experienced the Fragrance of God.
    I came home one day after shopping, open my front door, which is right next to the bathroom. I thought it was the soap in the bathroom, stuck my head in there. Didn’t smell anything like the aroma I smell. I stepped back in the front entrance to see if the fragrance was still there, and it was.
    It lasted for quite awhile. It was a clean fresh sweet aroma. I knew the presence of God was there. It was like He was waiting for me to welcome me home.
    I had that experience about 3 times.

  111. First I believe what u have said most importantly our lord , I’m actually wondering about another type of smell it isn’t that pleasant though , it is a burned hair smell could this be bad or troubling , and no there’s no literal indication of this smell and yes I’m serious curious for an opinion , is it something or not ? And lastly I smell it randomly but in odd thinking times like at night fall. Let me know if you can what u think.

  112. Thanks for sharing Carole!

    God is so good! I believe that the closer we get to the return of Christ the more His children will experience these things. God is sending us a message that He is close at hand and that He loves us!

    God bless!

  113. Thanks for your question Anonymous!

    I don’t have a definitive answer for that, however, if it is not a pleasant smell then I would say that it is not from the Lord, unless it is a vision of something bad or negative. It could be some sort of warning, but it could also be from evil spirits. With that being said, it could also be a smell triggered by an event or situation.

    We as followers of Christ are not of the night but of the day, we are of the light not the darkness, perhaps this is a clue as to where it is coming from since you said that it happens at night fall?

    I would seek the good Lord for answers, He is the one who knows all things. I believe that if it was from God then you would know it!

    God bless!

  114. I know what you are talking about. I experienced this for the first time 2 days ago 12/11/16. Then again on yesterday 12/12/16. It was early in the morning before daylight during my morning prayer. It was the sweetest & softest smell I’ve ever smelled in my life. I was alone in the house & I wasn’t cooking or baking. The aroma was that of baked sugar cookies & a sweet rose together. Never have I smelled anything so sweet & precious. I am humbled that GOD would make his presence known to me in such as sweet. & special way. I want to smell his presence over & over again. I will read, meditate & study his word more. I will continue striving to live a life pleasing unto him. So
    He will continue to make his presence known to me more often.

  115. Thanks for sharing Barbara Grooms!

    My will is for everyone to have this same experience of God! Perhaps if they did then they would become aware of God’s presence and experience His great love for us. It sure would be nice if we could experience this smell whenever we wanted, but it is at God’s will not our own. God is good and He will make his presence known to us in many ways, this is only one and very powerful at that!

    God bless Barbara! Maranatha!

  116. Hi, my name is, Mark. Thank you for sharing. I have smelled this scent. I smelled it on Thanksgiving day and not only smelled but felt the most amazing sense of love and peace fill my entire soul. Then it went into a pulsation of a heartbeat, with every pulse, this engulfing sense and feeling of love filled me inside and out and comforted my very being to my core. Inside and out. I smelled the auroma of sweet, fresh flowers, it was so clean and fresh, with the perfect amount of sweetness. I laid in my bed hour’s after and closed my eyes and but was still awake and saw this amazing soft, light streaming into my soul, as if it were alive and pulsating love, into me, as if I could see this light in my mind and it was rewiring me, “if I may say”.I want to say the Holy Spirit, but I do not want to sound blasphemous or offend, God. Later, I got up and turned on my tv and a boxing match was on, the second i saw it, i was repulsed. I had to turn my head instantly, due to feeling so repulsed and nauseous from seeing the violence. I am open and awake to what God wants me to do and I only want His love and will. I am so in love with, Jesus “The Word” God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The Ever Blessed Mother Ever Virgin Mary and Peter and Paul and all the Saint’s. I have a hunger for everything and anything of God. Mat God bless you always.
    -Mark D.

  117. Thanks for sharing Mark!

    This is another testimony of God sharing His love and making Himself known to us. And of course I do believe that it was the Holy Spirit within you!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  118. as I’m sitting here not even a good hour ago I smell the aroma of egyptian musk. I asked my nephfew and boyfriend if they smelled it and they did not. not even a good 2 mins after that the smell came back strong again standing like right in front of me. I need help with this for I do not know if its a good spirit or bad. thanks

  119. Hello,

    Im up searching to find answers to my experience and came across this post.

    My experience began around the third after my fast and prayer intercession. The next morning as I was coming awake there was distinct aroma and a redish stain spot upon the pillow I slept on. I looked and notice there were like three spots, one more bigger than the other two I checked the other matching pillow, as well as the other additional pillows and nothing appeared on them nor did they have this very distict scent!

    I checked the other laundry, the laundry detergent and softner and nothing carried this unique a scent. I took off the pillow case and checked the pillows, (btw brand new pillows) to see if the scent was coming from pillows. It wasnt. It’s still on my pillowcase as I type this. It’s been this way for two days.

    The scent is reminds me some kind of garden experience. What comes to mind is a petal with some kind of oil but it also does have a slight burnt cotton aroma too!

    This puzzled me so much, because as Im stirring occasionally in my sleep, I smell it. It feels like this is significantly different from all my prayering experiences. So I figured it must have happened to others, other than myself, and then I stumbled upon your post. Although, its been two years since your experience, I noticed a few persons seemed to have had similar experiences from the comments which is beautiful. Have you continued to have this happened since?

    Thank you for sharing!

  120. I was awakened this morning by a strong aroma from a sweet cake baking. I went to the kitchen anticipating that my roommate was baking for the holiday but she had not been to the kitchen as the lights were still off and blinds closed with no apparent movement in the house.

  121. Thank you for sharing Jerusalem Jewel!

    Wow, has it been two years already?! Unfortunately I cannot say that it has. However, it was such a strong and wonderful experience that I will never forget, forever etched upon my mind and my heart.

    God bless!

  122. ok… I am on this page cause I experienced way up in the morning of the most beautiful smell of a fragrance . I wondered if anyone else had experienced this as well . WOW … thanks for sharing . I could smell this fragrance so plain under my nose as if someone was fanning it right beside me .It lasted maybe five seconds ..I was alone ..
    I did open my eyes to figure out where the smell was coming from but it right after it went away . It was the most pleasant smell ever . hard to describe how nice it smelled . kinda orange fruity ,honey ,flowers . OMG …. I wasnt scared , I actually was so peaceful that I fell back asleep instantly .

  123. Hello my friend while laying in bed with my wife watching a movie just now had to look this post up for two hours I told her I smelled this sweet smell like even mangoes but even better finally I mentioned the fragrance of god we began to experience it in short burst like you described and we ft this overwhelming presence.

  124. I noticed this smell in my Bible in the book of DEUTERONOMY 28 1-14 (during 2016) I always decrease and declare these blessings of my family at least one a week. I noticed a beautiful smell comin from my Bible one morning, I started to praise God and worship Him and ask for the blessings. To this day the smell is still there! Every time I open it up to DEUTERONOMY 281-14 “I praise God and worship Him and ask for the blessings”.

  125. Hi Gordon, and all! Last night in the middle of the night, I was just laying in bed, husband was tending to one of our children, so no one was with me except my dogs in our room. I have a thing called dermatillomania (skin picking disorder) and on top of that trichotillomania (a hair pulling disorder). I know this may seem gross to some of u, but I sometimes get dry inside my nostrils and bleed and then will pick at it when it forms a scab). Well I so called “picked the inside, or “cleaned up” the inside of my nose. And later on, I smelled this most wonderful sweet, strong fresh minty smell right in front of my nose! It smelled just like the minty smelling doggy tooth paste I just got our dogs recently. It smelled so nice!! It lasted maybe 10 or less seconds and was gone. I wasn’t sure where it was coming from but thought it was very weird and strange! Before that I was ruminating about what to do about a “friend”, who really isn’t my friend, on what to do about a situation with her, as I couldn’t sleep at that point. I thought maybe my husband brushed his teeth with our minty toothpaste or something. I was determined to find any possible cause. When he and I were both up, before kids were awake, I asked him, did u brush your teeth or use anything minty, or the kids use anything minty? He said no, nothing. I was like, huh, weird. So I looked on the internet and typed in strange fresh minty smell come from nowhere or something like that. And I was reading about phantasma or some kind of thing were u smell things like cancer, diabetes or if u have a nasal infection u can smell things that aren’t there. But I cleaned out my nose and it doesn’t seem infected. Just itchy. That didn’t really satisfy as far as a good reason for this scent. If it were something bad, like a disease, it would smell bad, so, I ruled that out. I initially thought it was supernatural in my being. So, I found this site and read others experience that made me think it was not a nose infection or whatever. That’s why I mentioned my picking etc. I suffer from depression, anxiety and stuff and go thru believing very strongly in God and Jesus and then go through extreme doubts, anger at God and serious questions for him (deep depression hitting me during these extreme doubts etc) that are completely legit. I also have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. It really sucks, going through this emotional stuff. But this is not the only time I’ve experienced supernatural scents. Me and hubby were walking through a park in the middle of winter and BOTH of us smelled a strong lilac scent. It was great that I wasn’t the only one who smelled it, which made me feel not crazy! Then a few months later in our garage with our kids, I smelled a floral rose/lilac smell while getting into our car. But this time he didn’t smell what I smelled. My scence of smell has been getting more distinct and stronger lately and he doesn’t smell as well cause of a nose surgery a long time ago. I just don’t believe that I would smell something so wonderful and strong (the mint smell), if it wasn’t supernatural, ya know what I mean? I’ve also experienced other supernatural stuff, like visions from God, sleep paralysis (very scary by the way, when u sense a dark presence pushing down on your chest, and pulling the blankets off your bed, etc), spirits trying to scare me (spirit calling my name in middle of the night at a bed and breakfast, hearing strange stuff) seeing strange stuff like 3 balls of bright light flying through my parents living room over my head and through the window when I was a teen, apparitions, evil presence etc. One time when I was in our upstairs apartment another spirit tried to scare me and in response I said I rebuke you Satan in the name of Jesus! And right after that, the spirit left and I was given a strong sense of peace by God! Jesus’ name really is very powerful! I have had my share of weird stuff, even more than I am sharing here. I do wonder who was in my room last night. I hope it was God or Jesus! I wasn’t scared at at when I smelled it though, it was comforting! Anyone have any ideas on “who” or what it could’ve been? Thanks!

  126. I recently have been experiencing a sweet aroma, vanilla cookies or cake. This has occurred twice.

  127. Thanks for sharing Pixie!

    Sounds like you have your share of tribulations and I pray the good Lord lays His healing hands upon you and bind any and all demonic spirits coming against you!

    Many of the things which you spoke about sound demonic to me, such as the balls of light, dark presence, apparitions. Continue to rebuke and bind these evil spirits in the name of Jesus Christ! I would remove anything in the house which maybe demonic in nature, then bless each room of the house with the blood of Jesus!

    As far as the smells, I cannot say for certain that it is God, however, I do believe that many of us have smelled God’s presence. Perhaps the Lord is attempting to draw you closer to Himself? If these smells made you feel uncomfortable or uneasy in your spirit then they are not from God, yet you say that they comforted you. It sounds as though the good Lord is speaking to you, thank Him for His goodness and seek Him in all things. Hold fast to what is true, remain faithful to God Almighty, know that He loves you dearly and love Him back.

    We are in a spiritual battle my friend, this is true, there are demonic spirits fighting against what God has created and ordained. Do not forsake the leading of the Holy Spirit, but follow His lead. I do believe that God is speaking to His children in miraculous ways in these end times, and I believe that He is speaking to you telling you that He loves you and that He is with you!

    And one day soon we shall forever be with the Lord! Amen.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  128. Hi! Peace and blessings upon you Gordon and all!! I wanted to see if anyone else out there has experienced anything like what my husband and I experienced as we arrived home last night. It was around 10pm when we arrived home from having dinner together at a cozy lodge outside of our little town in Alaska. We pulled up in front of the house and got out of the truck and were quickly gathering our things to get the truck plugged in and get in the house since it was like 20 below outside. But as we made our way to the front door we were stopped in our tracks by this wonderful scent in the air. My husband said something first, asking me if I smelled it. I’m like wow.. what is that? We’re both just standing there in the cold night air with these big smiles on our faces trying to figure out what it could be and where it’s coming from. 😃 It was like you could smell and feel the scent. Imagine if rain had the smell of honey, fresh cut flowers and a little cinnamon. Honestly, trying to describe it seems to diminish it. After a little while I went back out to see if I could smell it, but the scent was gone. However, God’s presence is very much with us. 2016 was full of very trying situations in our marriage, and with our children. I started out even the new year very discouraged, but I feel like God was just sending some encouragement to remind us that He is with us and loves us! My husband agrees. God’s love surrounds us, even when we are despairing and stuck in a rut! Nothing can separate us from God’s love.😃

  129. Thanks for sharing Sharon!

    God is so good! He is making Himself known through our senses but also through miracles and answered prayer! God is not only in us but He surrounds us, He is everywhere. Keep seeking the Lord and keep looking up, for He shall never leave us nor forsake us. Amen.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  130. Hi there.

    Last night after praying I went to bed. I fell off to sleep but it was not like normal. Although my eyes were shut I was still very much aware of my surroundings. It felt like a light slumber…

    You see I started a new job today and perhaps I had a lot on my mind. I clearly remember experiencing a very sweet perfume like aroma. I didn’t open my eyes and after a few seconds it went away. This happened twice last night…

    Before I could put my phone down to charge after setting alarms I felt as if somebody sat on the edge of my bed. So I looked with the help of the light given off my mobile hoping to find one of my cats there but nobody was there. So I proceeded to sleep. Thereafter I had the scent experience. I wasn’t freaked out or anything. This morning as I was driving to my new Job I had double vision. I rubbed my eyes and it didn’t go away. Later during the day my eyes started to burn and I washed them with cold water. The burning sensation left. I couldn’t make any sense of this.

  131. Thanks for sharing Riaz!

    It could very well be that the good Lord was speaking to you through the scent, however, I don’t see how your double vision relates to this.

    God bless!

  132. I also experienced it few days back. I went to a burger and grilled chicken sjop to order dinner. I sat down. After fee minutes, I started smelling a scent of Jasmine flower. I know that God was trying to say something the moment I experienced that… wanna dig deeper as I believe there’s a deeper revelation behind it.

  133. Thanks for sharing Dance in the rhythm of the Father’s heartbeat!

    Pray to God for understanding and insight. If you know that it was from the Lord praise Him, give Him thanks and glory! Amen.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  134. Hi yeah I had similar thing happen firstly it was about a week ago I sat there and a whiff of scent past my nose I thought maybe it was the candle (but that wasn’t lit) then Saturday night the smell
    Actually woke me and it felt as if it brushed past me with cold air and a lovely smell of perfume then it just went was very strange.

  135. I have experiences this on more that one occasion. One time while at my mother in laws,we had just sat down with our cups of coffee and I started to smell what smelled like very strong maybe akin to perfume made a long time ago,sweet but a perfume twenty years ago one would associate with their grandmother wearing. Anyway, at first u thought my motherinlaw sprayed something because I even tasted it as I took a sip of my coffee and asked my motherinlaw why she sprayed something so close to me that I was tasting it in my coffee.I asked her if she smelled it too and she did and assured me that not only did she not spray anything but she didn’t have anything that smelled like this.other times it was more brief A few years ago on TBN,I heard one of the founders, Jan Crouch speak of it being a sign of something holy,not sure where she got this info from or her exact quote. I am about to read the comments and see if I learn anything as while searching for an answer I came to this web page. I don’t look into new age meanings,etc. Thanks for sharing your story

  136. I had an experience once – it only lasted a few seconds and I haven’t really shared it with anyone else other than my husband as I thought no one would believe me. It happened a few years ago while I was praying – I felt His sweet presence and smelled the most wonderful, sweet smell that I’ve ever smelled. I can’t even describe what it was like – it was unlike anything that I know – just so wonderful. I knew in a moment that is must be the presence of Christ – it was so sweet and such a lasting memory.

  137. Thanks for your comment Lisa Ogle!

    I do believe that it was the presence of God! There are many believers who do not agree with me, but I believe that God reveals Himself to us in many ways, and for some of us it is through our sense of smell. I also believe that many other believers can experience this if they would strive to be closer to God and believe that they will!

    God bless!

  138. I am not sure how long ago you posted this but I am experiencing something similar. It has happened twice now but I can’t figure out what it is. It occurred for the second time a few minutes ago. At 5 am I am woken up by no sound of smell. Then as I try to fall back asleep, which I never can, I begin to smell the sweetest smell I have ever experienced in my life. Like apple cinnamon oatmeal with honey and many other strong sweet aromas. It’s continuous for about 30 minutes. I have experienced negative energy at times in the night but this was a different feeling. It felt as if a loved one from heaven was trying to get my attention. Or an Angel. It felt peaceful and good. I am also 6 months pregnant and have a very keen sense of smell at the moment. No one is ever awake when this happens, no sprays, candles, anything. It’s while I’m laying in bed next to my husband and it smells so strong as if someone was covering me like a blanket. I have gotten up both times and walked down the hall ( still smelling the aroma as if it’s walking with me) to the bathroom after about 30 minutes of laying there and when I return to bed the smell is gone. I am a strong believer in God. It is January 23, 2017, I cannot remember the exact date of the last time but it was in this month still.

  139. Thanks for sharing Shianne!

    I wrote this post on September 8, 2014.

    I cannot say for certain that this was God or from God, but it sounds to me like it was! I believe that God is telling you that He is pleased with you and is comforting you.

    Please do not be fooled into believing that this is from a deceased loved one, this is not biblical, as we are not supposed to commune with the dead, this is called necromancy or witchcraft and is strictly forbidden by God Almighty!

    I believe that it was from God, either God Himself speaking to you or perhaps angels. God is good, and He does commune with His children in many ways, one of which I believe is through our sense of smell. The bible speaks of aromas which are pleasing to God, and even of Christ Himself as a pleasing aroma!

    Even though there are many believers who do not believe this, I for one most definitely do because I have experienced it myself! God loves us and speaks to us in many ways, He also seeks to comfort us in many ways.

    May God bless you, your child, your spouse, and the rest of your family!

  141. Yes I have. I didn’t know what to think of it. I smell a chocolate cake like smell. My husband and I have just moved into this mobile home. It happens and last almost exactly how you describe. We love the Lord and He is the head of our life. We have a testimony praise God😇 of how we moved in here. Some fear and confusion would set in when this would happen. Thank you so much for this article. Please keep me informed of any new information that God will allow you to share. Amazing! 😇❤

  142. This just happened to me today ,January 25,2017 approximately 1:30 PM. While walking in my living-room all of a sudden I was stopped in my tracks by the strongest scent of a sweet perfume. So strong I could almost taste it. I felt such a stirring in my spirit that I kind of mumbled to my friend asking him did he smell it because it was so strong. He asked me what was I talking about that he didn’t smell anything. It lasted for about two mins. Somehow I knew it was directly related to God which lead me to research a Christian answer

  143. Hello all.I also have had this experience .it was awesome and lasted a few months, I had been spending hours seeking God and suddenly I found that I felt this amazing coolness emanating from my body and the smell of perfume that does not exist on this planet..no words can describe it.I have never smelt myrrh..but that’s the only thing I can think of.it started in my bedroom .the fragrance was sweet n the room was always cool.from the room the fragrance would flow outside to my patio and my mum would visit and ask me what the beautiful smell was.wherever I went I could smell it.my body itself felt the fragrance oozing out of me.I could also have sensations of something pouring into me. Whatever it was I don’t know..It was just amazing n all I wanted was to stay in that place.I was at peace beyond words. I felt it was an annointing stronger than anything I ever experienced. I started learning the hebrew side of the word and studying my bible every minute.I also felt very strong sensations in my right hand ..like something flowing from it.One day I visited my mum..transferred annointing and immediately she told me she could smell the perfume and saw an amazing gold light.As suddenly as it started with me, I seem to have lost this amazing time in life and am trying to find my way back to that place.The months following the disappearance of this fragrance I can only describe as hell. .I started behaving like a crazy person..Looking back I don’t recognise who that person was.my mum was around me a few times I had episodes n says she never saw so many personalities from one person in one day.I m finding my way slowly.the Dr says I m bipolar.I say I was under psiritual attack.my desire is to be again in my Father’s grace and feel his love and smell heaven.

  144. Thank you for sharing Cheryl!

    God is so good, and you are in His favor, remain steadfast, keep looking up, and may your faith in Jesus Christ increase!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  145. Thanks for sharing Teresa Hoard!

    The good Lord is pleased with you Teresa! He is allowing you to know Him at a different level, through your physical senses. Not all believers have such an experience of God as this, know that you have been blessed! Give Him all of the thanks and glory! Continue to seek His face and perform His will.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  146. Thank you for sharing Anonymous!

    God is good, and He makes His presence known to us in many ways, the sense of smell being one of them. When you tell someone in the secular world about such an experience as this one, then they will tell you that you are crazy! But, there is so much more than meets the eye. We are under spiritual attack, and the demons seek to keep us from the Lord and His ways. As long as you are saved, born-again, then demons will seek to keep you from performing God’s will.

    Your experience is really quite amazing, as it lasted for several months, and even your mother could smell it from you! You felt the anointing of God within you and you knew that it was from God! My belief is that is was from God, that God Himself was filling up with His Holy Spirit, and that you not only smelled His presence but felt Him within yourself and He emanated from your spirit! This is truly a blessing!

    However, as you have stated yourself, this anointing does not last forever. But after saying so, you must know that God is with you! He has found favor in you in His eyes, as He has given you the opportunity to smell His presence and be “filled” with His Spirit.

    Do not be alarmed that you no longer feel His presence nor smell His presence. He has given you a gift, keep it etched upon your heart and within your spirit. Keep seeking God, keep looking up, and know that He is with you! There is no secret formula to smell the presence of God, it is something that only He can do, and He does it at His will. God is not about how we feel, but about what we believe to be the truth. Satan and his demons will seek to destroy us by placing doubts and fears into our head. Do not be deceived by these evil spirits, but instead be led by God Almighty! Know that Jesus Christ is your Savior, that He is within you however you feel.

    Like I said earlier, if you have been saved then you have God’s grace already! Do not be fooled by demonic spirits, God’s grace is a free gift which none of us deserve, yet He bestowed it upon us because He loves us. It can never be taken away, we can never be snatched out of God’s hand by anyone or anything!

    As believers we can be attacked by demonic spirits, they can destroy our physical life, they can cause us harm and illness, but only if God allows them to do so, as He did with Job. One thing they cannot do to us if we are born-again is take our soul and our spirit which now belongs to God Almighty! Amen.

    Take care Anonymous! Know that God is with you, keep Him close and continue to seek His face, no matter how you feel or don’t feel.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  147. Hi all, I’ve had an encounter of smelling the sweet jasmine fragrance of the Father several times whilst leading praise & worship. Last night at church during worship the smell was so strong – i kept breathing the fragrance in.

  148. I have smelled the scent of roses before and there surely was none in my home or my neighbors. I took comfort that it might be the Heavenly Father or a message from my recently deceased grandmother. Either way the scent was lovely and I wasn’t scared 🙏❤

  149. Thanks for sharing Anonymous!

    The scent may have been from the Lord to give you peace and comfort, however, we are not to communicate with the dead. Not to sound harsh or uncaring, but it being from your grandmother I don’t believe that it was, as nice as you would like it to be. I felt the same way after my father died, however, I know that things such as this are not from my father. If we are saved and our loved ones are saved also then we shall see them again in heaven, we can take comfort in knowing this.

    Seek the Lord, ask Him for wisdom, clarity, and understanding, and He will give it to you, as long as you are born-again.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  150. Good morning, Today on a Monday Feb 6th, a really strong smell of sweet Perfume woke me up it was around 4:00 am
    I sat up looked around and the clock, couldn’t figure out were was this beautiful scent coming from? The first thing that came to my mind was that a loved one came to say goodbye or hello?? but did not see anything turned around and went back to sleep. When my alarm went off at 6:00 i went straight to Google and this sight came up… I believe in God,Jesus and the holly spirit and differently my Angels there is not a day that goes bye that i thank them for the Good and the bad each day… but the smell of perfume i dint have any knowledge of.. it gives me peace to know more about it and that I’m not the only one..Thank you…

  151. I have been trying to sleep all night but I’m keep getting a smell of flowers or roses it actually smells like perfume but a beautiful smell… every time I doze off it gets stronger and stronger that I can’t sleep as I am typing this right now and I can smell it it started a little bit after 2 o’clock a.m. and now it’s going on 6 a.m. in the morning then I’m kind of getting a headache from it I feel like if I tell anyone they will think I am crazy but I looked it up and seen your post

  152. Thanks for sharing Mary!

    The only thing that throws me off here is that you say you are getting a headache from it! The smell of the Lord should not give you a headache, but bring peace and comfort.

    God bless!

  153. Since a few months, I have had the same experience, my daughter had it before me but I could never smell it, the Lord told me that it is an heavenly smell…

  154. This happened to me last night. I am a 19 year old girl. I woke to the smell of candy and came out of my room thinking my nana was making something, keeping in mind it was 3am. Nana told me it was Jesus

  155. Me too feel good aroma while i pray ,i serched every where but didnt find anything .i asked my husband and and daughter if they are feeling the smell ,but they didnt.

  156. My mom who is 92 smelled smoke she said, but I smelled strong flowers like lilies or honeysuckle mixed with gardenia. She said do you smell it? I said yes, it is sweet. It lasted about 10 minutes and was about 12:34 at night. We are both Christians. I was praying earlier and listening to angelic music on my phone. We had argued earlier in the day. We had a stressful day. Strange men had walked down our street causing my dog to bark and wake me up after midnight. This is the second time they have done that, the night before one had knocked on my neighbor’s door. She was afraid to answer and wasn’t dressed. I don’t know if that had anything to do with the smell. I thought it was strange it happened about the same time as someone else reported. When my angelic music was through I Googled the smell and found more than I expected. We both smelled it, I will ask her more about her experience in the morning.

  157. This just happened to me last week. I was lying awake in bed and I smelled the strongest scent of a watermelon jolly rancher candy. It was so strong I could taste it!! I don’t know what it means but it was amazing!! The smell lasted for about a minute. I haven’t had one of those in years. I have none in my house and haven’t for years…if ever. I looked at my clock and it was 1:22 am. I can’t find an explanation. I hope it hapens again!! It was very cool!! I’ve never had something like this happen before. I thought I would look it up online and I found this. 🙂

  158. I’ve several times awoken to a sweet fragrance in my bedroom that could have no other explanation except the smell of His presence. Even in winter with the windows closed, the fragrance would be there when I woke up. On another occasion it came in the middle of the day while working on my computer. That time I had a candle near-by that wasn’t lit. I picked it up and took it to another room. When I returned, the fragrance was still there (and FYI, different from that candle anyway). It lasted for most of the afternoon.
    Last night, the fragrance came in the middle of the night. It was more pungent than any previous time. Unlike others who have commented, I wasn’t prompted to worship, except to continually give thanks, which I guess is worship too.
    Today is the first time I searched for anyone else having this experience, and was glad to fall upon this site. Thanks for sharing. I hope you are encouraged from the comments you are receiving. The blessing of the Lord comes in so many ways!
    I want to press in now for more understanding… Praise you Jesus! You smell so beautiful!!!

  159. Hey brotha! How’s it going!, As i write this down right now I had experienced the same exact thing, where i smelled s fragrance that was so sweet I couldn’t miss it, It smelled like my grandmas perfume but this one was too sweet, like that I cant even begin to describe.. it was so comforting, and right then I felt a breeze hit me , the smell literally was only there for 1-2 seconds, and smelled it a few times after.. I’m glad I’m not the only one here, In Jesus name my brother, lets enjoy this presents of God, Amen!

  160. one day in march 2017 in my dream I could smell a strong sweet pleasant lingering smell that I can’t describe but pleasant lingering smell. I felt it around me when I partially woke up I don’t have such perfume in my possession. let me add in d dream I saw a lot of beautiful house hold toiletries but recognized only one brand d place was like a church and I heard a voice telling to take d tone was like take as much as u want I recognized d voice is God’s I could believe what I saw and how I felt it was awesome especially d aroma.

  161. I have smelled a certain fragrance a few times in my life. One time , as my family was going through a tough patch, I think I was around 17 or 18, I used to wake up and pray in the morning as my grandmother said if you pray and have faith, everything will pass.Mind you, I think that was the first time in my life when I prayed so hard, as I wasn’t too much of a Christian.I believed in Jesus and the Lord, but I felt strange and out of place to pray.The situation was that bad, that I did get on my knees and started praying. One time, I simply did not had time to pray on one morning, so before going to bed I prayed and I asked forgiveness. Even before I finished my prayer, this great smell of a thousand flowers just fill in the room. At least, that’s what it felt like to me.And that’s the only way I can describe it. I thought to my self, that for sure are flowers from Heaven as in no way this could exist on Earth. And I didn’t want that smell to go away. But as soon as I opened my eyes, just like a breeze brushed over my face and the smell was gone. I broke in tears, and even though since then I had my moments of waiver, I still do pray. Sometimes, it’s that smell, and sometimes it smells like jasmine.
    Often times, I feel that smell when I worry, it’s like a reminder that we’re never alone, and our Lord has our backs. Other times,like now when I talk about Jesus and that experience, I feel very light almost like a feather and I know that’s a sign too.
    Anyway, sorry for the long post but it is true, it does happen and too many people. It’s an experience worth more than what it can be described in words.

  162. Thanks for sharing Alexandra Gabriel!

    God is so good, and He communes with us in many ways, and in many ways tells us that He loves us, that He cares for us, and that He is here to comfort us and increase our faith!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  163. How you described His fragrance is literally the best possible way to describe it. It smelled so so warm and sweet. So welcoming and so pleasant. I literally just smelled it for the first time. I thought I was going crazy for a second. I even thought the same thing as you too. Like I was literally sniffing hardcore…And the thing is…I was able to recognize that it wasn’t like any other smells I’ve smelled before. Like it smelled like cake, but there was something different about it. And I don’t know if I’ve smelled Him before, but this is the first time I regonized it. Also, I’ve gotten white feathers before, and none of my pillows were ripped open. So trust me, you’re not crazy. God speaks in some insane ways. He is literally the definition of cool. And once I smelled this, I immediately had to Google to see if anyone else had the same experience hahaha

  164. As I was crying and worshiping in song ( with all my heart) because I am struck in this particular verse in the bible for weeks and months. John 16: 24 Hitherto have you asked nothing in my name.ask and ye shall receive . that your joy may be full. I really do not know what to ask .
    Suddenly as I was crying as I sing the song , I suddenly smell the smell The of coffee. It is impossible for anyone to make coffee because everyone is asleep . I was meaditatimg the word of God from 2:45 am till now 5:53am alone . No one wake up to the kitchen as they have to go thru me before they enter in to the kitchen as I am sitting in the dinning table by the walk way to the kitchen . This is the second time . The first time is when I was sharing testimony with my husband in the room and he was half sleeping tryimg very hard to be attentive to me . But suddenly , he wake up and say “smell of coffee” . He ran out to the living room . But everyone is asleep . And he say” I smell coffee” . He is a coffee lover .

  165. I have had the same type experiences for about 30 years are so.
    I just happened to Google – what does it mean to smell sweet scents of flowers right before something bad is about to happen- and your post showed up first.
    All I tell you is to begin to interceed and pray. Ask God to show you who needs prayer at that moment, you may know and learn who or at times I have ask and just had to pray until I felt a release and the sweet smell left. For me it is a sudden breathe of sweet aromas, like I had been placed in a field of very fragrant flowers. But there is also such a heaviness and a feeling of life leaving my body. It puts me to my knees. I have been awaken driving, at work, cooking, and had this hehe to pray. For me it has always been to pray for my son or a loved one, someone close to me. I think now, that God allows me this because He knows I will touch heaven through my prayers and pray until that peace comes. The Word says seek Him and He will answer, and He always does.

  166. Yesterday night, I was reading a book about seven manifestations of the Holy Spirit, I won’t explain everything but it explained how to recognize the work of the Holy Spirit behind our daily small victories. So, this morning I was suppossed to submit a paper to my teacher and I couldn’t find it, I decided to pray and spent a moment speaking in tongues. When, i left my room to go work on it again in the library, my friend told me that I smelled good and I also started smelling scents that I don’t know on myself, it was so strange but it smelled so good. Everytime I would smell it, a voice would pop up in my head like maybe it’s one of the manifestation of the Holy Spirit… At first, I thought I was just crazy but i kept thinking about it so I decided to google it and I saw this post. Thanks for sharing your amazing experience with us. 🙏🏽

  167. Thanks for sharing Rebekah Yarbrough!

    Your experience has been like no other comment here. You say that you had this smell along with a heaviness, a feeling of life leaving your body. My experience was much different, as I felt comfort and peace, I felt God’s presence.

    God bless!

  168. My brother died many years ago and I had a dream, that he was in, shortly after his death. It was so real. It has been over 20 years and I had the most realistic dream and he was once again there. I woke up from a deep sleep to a fragrance I can not describe accurately. It was a ‘full’ fragrance and smelled like perfume and flowers and maybe cake. I just laid in bed and smelled it for about 15 or 20 minutes. Had it not lasted so long, I would never have believed it had been there at all. It was so ‘full’, I swear I could almost taste it too.

  169. I had the strangest experience today which led me to do a search, which led me to your site.
    I was sitting in my car with my 17 year old daughter having a conversation about the blatant satanism in mainstream media these days, and how sad it is that people are turning from their faith in the God of the Bible and/or are unknowingly worshiping satan through modern music etc.
    Out of nowhere I smelled roses. I thought my daughter had put on perfume, she said no, I leaned close to and I didn’t smell it anymore. It was just in the air. It lasted a few minutes. No explanation as to where this scent of roses came from.
    Side note: I’m in chicago, nothing is in bloom yet

  170. Hi
    I had someone that I loved dearly pass away unexpectedly. He was the love of my life. I have been praying and asking God to please give me a sign he is ok or a sign that God is hearing my prayers.I woke up in the middle of the night to a very strong very beautiful smell of flowers. It was not my imagination and I have no flowers, spray or anything else in my house.Can anyone tell me what this means? Someone told me it was angels sent by God to assure me all was ok? I really hope so and my faith has really gotten stronger when it was weaker before.

  171. I was reading Genesis chaptet 11,I started smelling this sweet perfume aroma,I thought I was tripping.Then I look up the biblical meaning.I found that Im not the only one that had this experience.

  172. For the last week or so I too have been experiencing a strong sweet fresh fragrance that only lasts for a second or two. I first experienced it late at night whilst in my bed. I would get a whiff of it and it would disappear. I began to think that the wind was blowing a flower fragrance in through my windows but then last night I was in a theatre listening to a lecture when it happened again. It is a very strong sweet fresh fragrance that causes me to sniff in to try and figure out what it could be. It seems to be a strong mixture of many different fragrances that do have some familiar scents but I cannot clearly identify them. I had no idea what this was all about so I googled it tonight. I am so surprised to see that so many others have had similar experiences. It is lovely but I would really love to know why this is suddenly happening and is becoming quite frequent and what is the meaning of it.

  173. Before having this experience of sweet smells I have for sometime had visions almost like clouds moving in the sky but they were mostly various hues of purple and sometimes they would form shapes that looked like sheep, Jesus head, people at a table almost like the Lords last supper and sometimes they would be very difficult to figure out what they were.

  174. You have just described the smell that filled my office about 20 minutes ago. It lasted seconds and seems to linger in my own sinus. No one was here with me, my office has no windows and only a metal door that leads to the outside and one that leads to a funky smelling warehouse. I have never smelled anything from outside ever. But the scent was in my office very strong in my bosses office a little strong and lightly in the office behind me. My first thoughts was what was God’s doing in allowing me to enjoy this moment.

  175. The description you gave, is the very scent I experienced in my office today about an hour ago. I walked into my office which has no windows, only two heavy metal doors. One door leads to a funky smelling warehouse and the other is an entrance door from the outside. I have never had any kind of aroma enter my office from outside and we are the 2nd to the last warehouse on the strip. The only smells I get is from the kitchen when my boss is making us a treat. Today, I am the only one here. I locked the main door and left my office to heat my coffee. I returned to this very sweet, pleasant, flower/cotton candy smell. I looked around thinking, did my boss return and is she wearing perfume, or did she come in and leave something to make the office smell so pleasant. The smell was extremely strong in my office, a little lighter in hers, which her door was open and very light in her husband’s office. The smell lasted a few seconds and was gone, except it seemed to linger in my sinus’. My boss came in and I told her about it. She smelled nothing, only I could seemed to be the one to enjoy it. Now as I write this… I can say, it is gone. After a little confusing search, my thoughts were, “Why has God allowed me to experience such a sweet aroma.

  176. Thank you for sharing Kathy Cribbs!

    I believe that it was from God, whether or not is was God or His angels, it was the aroma of God. I had the sense of God and angels.

    I truly believe that God is comforting you and giving you His peace, He is letting you know that He is with you and hears you. I can’t tell you anymore than that.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  177. Thanks for sharing Patricia Lynn Pimentel!

    God is good and He speaks to us in many ways, smelling the aroma of God is just one of those ways!

    You say that you would love to know why this is suddenly happening? Well, first of all are you saved? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If so then the good Lord is comforting you with His presence. If not then He is drawing Himself to you, so that you would know that He is God, that Jesus Christ is God, He is knocking at your door, waiting for you to believe.

    Pray about it, ask Jesus Christ to give you wisdom and understanding regarding this experience. Seek the Lord!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  178. Thanks for sharing Patricia Lynn Pimentel!

    God is giving many people dreams and visions in these last days. I have also had many dreams and visions. I believe the closer that we get to the beginning of the Tribulation period these experiences will continue to increase.

    Your vision sounds like the marriage supper of the Lamb!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  179. Thanks for sharing tmp4ever!

    This is one way that God speaks to us, by allowing us to smell His aroma. He gives us comfort and peace in doing so, knowing that He is with us and hears our prayers.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  180. Hi I am a 62 year old male
    I have had the same experience smelling the sweetest sweet aroma while asleep. I have had this happen many many times over for many years now. Last week I had the same experience 5 times in one night waking up after each experience then have it again right away each time I fall asleep.
    I became a believer in Christ in 1980.
    Since then I have had thousands of dreams that actually comes to pass the very next day.
    These dreams are major things that occur exactly as I dreamed it the next day it is front page news.
    I mean very major events.
    As for these sweet sweet aroma dream experiences I have had them many many times since my conversion to Christ.
    I am not sure what it is about but are very thankful that I came across someone else like you that has the same experience. I know of no one else having this smell.

  181. Tears fell as I read what you had written.
    In the last 6 months I have experienced
    terrible grief and spiritual attack but with it an incredible sense of Gods peace. He has held me in his hand, sheltered me under his wings.

    As I make my way through these times I feel incredible healing and that I am being taken through to a truly blessed time in my life.

    In the quietness of my room a beautiful mellow vanilla, deep rose scent catches me. Never expected, I find myself trying to follow the scent as it comes and goes for about 20 minutes.
    It brings with it a beautiful peace…wrapped in Gods pure love.

    We can try to describe it, understand it. It is another one of Gods beautiful mysteries.


  182. Thanks for sharing Herbert Mattheus!

    I never knew of anyone else having these experiences either until after I wrote this post. However, it seems that there are many out there that have had similar experiences.

    Acts 2:16-18
    “16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

    ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
    That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
    Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    Your young men shall see visions,
    Your old men shall dream dreams.
    And on My menservants and on My maidservants
    I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
    And they shall prophesy.”

    Perhaps this sense of smelling the aroma of God is a part of what the old testament prophet Joel prophesied about. Another sign of the last days!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  183. Thanks for sharing Katherine!

    God uses these times in our life to bring us closer to Him, to refine us, to make us more Christ-like, and to make us more useful for His will. He also works these times out for our good!

    You’re description of the aroma is similar to mine, toasted s’mores combined with cotton candy, as I think about it this has a vanilla smell to it as well!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  184. Thanks Katherine for sharing about your experience with God.
    Bless you

  185. This morning having my quiet time in the garden I kept getting woffts of murr coming to my nostrils, not once many times.I got up to walk around the house to see where it could come from there was noone else at the house and nothing that smelt of anything. But yet this smell kept coming over the next hour. Then his evening watching t.v the smell of fresh baked biscuits. I am the only one here and not a biscuit even in a packet. I believe that the Lord is telling me how close by He is. Its just a beautiful blessing, just like the gold oil that often just appears on my hands and arms when I am chatting to Him. Its so wonderful to think that He just wants to bless us in SO many different ways.God Bless Vickie

  186. i xperiecd it today at 3 – 4 am. i woke up wit som sweet aroma that stayd so long. l prayd in tongues. the aroma came so strong again at 4am. i still perceiv it faintly now.

  187. What gives you the right to determine who replys and who doesn’t. I am a proud and decent atheist and in the beginning MAN created God.

  188. I have had this experience also. After my husband passed on into eternity at 50 I didn’t know how to handle it and didn’t want life anymore. I was asleep and in the middle of the night a fragrance woke me up! It was a smell I had never smelled in my life. It smelled like a flower I had never seen. Immediately I knew that it was from God, the creator of all good things. I thought I was nuts!! I told everybody. Then I was on youtube weeks later looking at a video of a woman that experienced the same thing!!! She said that it meant that Christ was with her and so were angels.

  189. Well first of all Andrew it’s my blog! So that gives me the right to make that determination. But above that the God who created you and me gives me the authority to do so! And I am posting your comment so what in the world are you talking about anyway?!

    If you wish to believe that you were formed from a pile of slime go ahead, its your choice. But before you mock God, take a look around you and tell yourself that every single thing in this universe just happened by chance, that it all came from nothing, when there was nothing for it to come from.

    We will all sit in judgment, every single one of us. Do you really want to mock the one who will be judging you?

    We are all appointed once to die Andrew, and then the judgment. Whose side will you be on? I speak the truth, believe it or not.

  190. I too get the smell of cotton candy from out of nowhere. I have experienced this smell several times off and on for several years. However, its not a scent that i enjoy because it is inevitably followed by death In my experiences with it. If im in a group of friends and lightly smell it i know that one of them will soon loose a family member. But if its a strong smell of cotton candy i know that one of my closest friends will pass away with no warning. I cant however tell how, who, or when but its usually happens whithin the same month. Sometimes the smell is so strong i cry or grieve right then and when it actually happens i dont feel the need to. I am a christian and i find this ability to be strange. And many of my friends and loved ones dont believe me until they have been with me when i smell it and tell them about my experiences only days before our mutual friend or loved one passes and proves me right. I know that sounds harsh. Lord knows i would rather not be proven right! Id much rather keep my friends and loved ones.
    I too dont understand the reason i smell cotton candy before a death and would like some insight also. I hear that the bible says the smell of cotton candy means the end of something, is that true?.

  191. Thanks for sharing Brandie!

    I haven’t heard that before, very interesting. I have had the sense of death before many times and they have all been accurate, however I never smelled cotton candy at the time.

    I have never before heard that the bible says that the smell of cotton candy means the end of something. If you find it in scripture then please let me know! I don’t believe that they actually had cotton candy during the times the scriptures were written.

    God bless!

  192. I just had this experience tonight at 9:15. Laying on my couch and a beautiful fragrance came over me. A few seconds long enough to inhale.
    I quickly did a search on this. The smell was
    a blend like I’ve never smelled…. Rose..Lily
    Sweet and strong …But only seconds then

  193. I woke up this morning to a sweet smell of something I cant’t describe. It lasted only a few minutes I know it is God or a love one. When my grandfather died I was pregnant. It was 1am and I saw him, he could not walk and had all timers.. well when I say him I told him grandpa you can’t walk your going to hurt yourself. He replied no sweetie were I am going there is no pain I just came to say goodbye and take care of yourself. So I called my aunt and ask her is everything ok. She said your grandpa died at 1am. Then two weeks later I gave birth my son weight 10 pounds. No one in my family ever had a big baby. That night I saw him again this time with my grandmother. He said I brought your grandma so she could see that big boy of yours. They both said he is so precious a big take good care of him and they were gone. I have seen them thru out the years and I have seen my aunt she is gone to. I was raise with my grandparents and aunt. I have be able to speak with friends that died also at first I thought I am crazy but now I know their is life after death.

  194. The exact same thing just happened to me. The aroma of something sweet like donuts or cake woke me up out of my sleep. It gave me a sense of love, happiness. That lead me on a search to see what it means. And that’s how I ended here, it’s good to know that I’m not alone.
    Thanks for sharing your experience.

  195. Hi Gordon,
    I know you wrote this message 3 years ago however my experience just occurred. Yesterday morning I experienced in intense sweet, soothing smell, it was beautiful right before I woke up. All I know is it was such a calming feeling and such a beautiful scent before I woke. I didn’t continue to smell it as you did with yours as my day continued. But I do know that there’s no possibility of it being from anything outside or within my apartment. There’s no Jasmine planted in the front yard closest to my window and I don’t have Jasmine inside but I could tell for whatever reason that it was a distinct sweet smell of Jasmine. I immediately googled too ha ha. I’m taking it as a visitation from Angels because it gave me such a strong sense of peace enjoy.
    God bless, and have an amazing day!

  196. I was fasting on the Friday before Resurrection Day this year. I wanted to deny myself and honor Him. I was at my father/mother-in-law’s house and they had smoked salmon and delicious foods and drinks. I was quite hungary. My husband was fasting too. I was particularly tempted while we were there because it had been about 24 hrs at that point. Anyway, I think we were watching War Room and I because to smell lillies. I asked everyone else if they smelled flowers. I thought perhaps it meant my small gesture of love was acceptable to our Lord.

  197. I have had this wonderful experience in the last two years – in church mainly but also waking up to sweet, sweet smell and in the car while worshiping. Last night during a church service, it was the strongest and stayed the whole time – almost 3 hours, coming in waves. My husband on one side and a friend on the other side could also smell the fragrance. It was like cookies baking.

  198. Hello, I had a few experiences my self. But night was my first time been woke up with a smell like sweet cotton candy. I looked at my clock and it happend around 12:00am. Woke up with the smell litterly on around me. I looked around the room nothing out of the ordinary. My husband was sound asleep. I got up when to the bathroom and I can still smell it on my side of the bed, till it just vanished. Read a few articles about paranormal and medical health issues. I just don’t know? Looking for answers.

  199. Hello my name is Sonya and I have experienced this also. Just Saturday, May 28th, i woke up with this overwhelming smell of a baked cake. It smelled so good! It was like I could go in my kitchen and see it sitting on my counter. The thing is; I don’t bake! I too will be seeking God regarding this. Oh how I love Him!

  200. My mother died of pancreatic cancer 6 years ago. It absolutely devastated me and I still have troubles coping with it to this day. A couple years ago I fell into a hard time in life and was also preparing for a surgery. I was taking a nap only I was in that half awake/half asleep state. I could hear my fan running yet my body was completely asleep. I suddenly smelled my mothers perfume. Obsession. I remember that smell waking me up as a child many mornings. I screamed out for my mother absolutely devastated and just like that fell into a deep sleep. What’s crazier is I forgot all about the experience until the next day. A lady walked by me wearing a strong perfume and I suddenly remembered the experience. I think once she realized how emotional her visit made me she left. I hate that I got so upset. She hasn’t made contact with me like that since. She has influenced my life in many directions though. There’s been too many major “coincidences” that ended in my favor over the past several years. I know she is with me but I sure wish she would visit more often and let it be known like she did that day. I never saw her but I know it was her.

  201. Thanks for sharing Chrystal!

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I pray that the good Lord comforts you and gives you the peace that only He can.

    God bless!

  202. Im a single father of 3 daughters and i been searching. For ppl who are experiencing the samething i live in houston tx and this has been going on for years i beleive in God but i cant explaing why this happens like you said it has happen in my room outside my house and other places and its alwas or most of the time when im alone and late at night after 12 one time i even woke my daughters and brought them down they couldnt smell it but i could even when they were there but they did notice one thing climate change and they said it felt warm and peacefulness i just want to know what is going on

  203. Thanks for your comment Mateo Servin!

    God is calling all who will believe in His Son Jesus Christ, calling them to repentance and acceptance of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Calling all believers to repent and turn away from sin, to seek Him first in all things, to live in the world but not be of the world! This is God’s will, and His return for the church is close at hand.

    God bless!

  204. I have been smelling different angels and demons for about two years now and have been writing them down as God and the Holy Spirit reveal them to me. Cotton candy are warrior angels; smores or tootsie rolls as I smelled them are Purity angels. I ask God what I am smelling and He usually reminds me what has been happening around that time, or He will direct me to a scripture verse. Angels smell soooo good, and can be directed to help others. i.e. warrior angels for a battle in a friend’s life. Demons are horrific as expected. Holy Spirit smells like a just blown out candle. it is awesome to have this gift! It is discernment, the last gift of the Holy Spirit released on us Christians. I have had it for 42 years, but it is much stronger now.

  205. Days after my mother passed away, while sleeping I smelled a beautiful smell…like roses but much better. I woke up very happy 🙂
    Today, I smelled a beautiful perfume again while in the yard and it lasted only couple minutes. When I told my son, he too bad a similar experience. I think it’s Gods presence near us. He is assuring us that He is with us until the end of time.

  206. I have been praying to be more “connected” to the spirit world with this has come two things, the first….numbers meaning whenever I look at the clock it is double digits like 1111,1010, 333, 555 Etc. As I continue to explore these meetings as they happen they’re all connected to the spirit world in some way. The second phase which happened much later than the number thing is smell….the smell of cotton candy when there is no one in the car or room but me and there is nothing cooking and no perfume anywhere. I truly believe that I am being spoken to.

  207. Thanks for your comment Cali!

    Just make sure that you are connected to the “right” spirit world, there are good and evil spirits. Make sure that you are right with the Lord, Jesus Christ!

    God bless!

  208. Thank you for that warning. I am also learning about that exact thing. Protection, light seeking prayers. I agree. I don’t want to connect to the wrong type of spirits.

  209. I have just started re reading the bible. I have started my journey again with God. I always have been spiritual more than anything on my own right with my father. I’ve had smelled different things and never thought of them being spiritually connected. Now I knew bad smells was not of God.

    I have smelled candles being blown out smell. I have smelled sweet smelling flowers.
    I have smelled cigarettes. My favorite is SWEET WARM VANILLA with a hint of cinnamon.

    Has anyone smelled the vanilla? What does it mean?

  210. Thanks for sharing Wynetta!

    God speaks to His children in many ways, one of which is through our sense of smell. Read through the many comments and you will see that this has happened to believers over and over again!

    I have smelled something similar to vanilla, and I know that it was God. If you have come back home to the Lord after wandering away then perhaps it is the good Lord being pleased with you. God wants nothing more than for His children to remain on the right path and not follow the ways of the world.

    God bless!

  211. I was just asleep on my sofa, 4:30 pm, and could feel a horrible pain in the back of my head, which woke me and as I am waking there was such a strong sweet smell of cherries while opening my eyes…so strong that it seemed as if it were right in front of me. I even opened the door to see if someone were there, but it quickly disappeared. The pain also went away. I’ve never experienced anything like that before.

  212. Thanks for sharing Angela!

    You’re experience is a little different from what I have heard so far, very interesting!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  213. I smelled a sweet aroma, smelt like a perfume named Brighten, I don’t remember which Brighten fragrance exactly. It was only for a couple of seconds but the first thing I felt was angels as well.

  214. I see that this post is from three years ago, so I hope it is still seen. I just did a quick Google search on this matter as I have been doing a Bible study with a group of women and several times during journaling and my quiet time with the Lord I have smelled this sweet fragrance for a couple of seconds just like you said. To me it smells of cherries, roses, and maybe vanilla. It is a fragrance that I enjoy very much and am always sad that it leaves so quickly! The first time it happened I was home alone and knew it could not have come from anywhere in the home, or myself. It has only happened during my journaling time. I know it is of the Lord and find it so exciting that He would reveal Himself in this way to me!! Happy to find that others have experienced the same.

  215. Thanks for sharing Angel Eacret!

    Although this post was made several years ago, it is one of the most read posts of all time for this site. People continue to share their experiences, it seems that we are not the only ones having them!

    God is good! God bless! Maranatha!

  216. Am here lieing in bed as I was sleeping covered with my prayer shawl I smell a fresh lemon scent thought I was dreaming but as I open my eyes I could smell the fragrance. .I have nothing scented burning it’s just the fan spinning. .then it struck me that the presence of the Lord is in my bedroom. I started to smell my prayer shawl and I could smell the fragrance on it. even now while am writing this the smell is ever so present. ..am so basking in his awesome smell and present. .sweet lemon oil fragrance. ..Thank you for your visitation Holy Ghost.

  217. Amen! I actually experienced this myself today. I was wide awake then all all of a sudden a strong fragrance like perfume but smelled definitely like flowers came over me and lasted but only a few seconds. I also tho have been really digging into the book of revelations!

  218. When I was a child, we use pray rosary at my grandma’s house. The whole families will gather aunts, cousins, grandma, kids and sometimes the neighbors,too. I will never forget the sweet smell of roses during or after the rosary. There were no roses nearby. Gradma always said it was the presence if tye Virgen Mary. This was one of my great memories as child. I cherish until this day.

    Now that I’m 35 years old, I have experience some difficulties in my life. I have praying and praying this cituation to get solve soon, if that GOD will of course. Well last night, after i was woke up by my toddler. I sat down and rock her until she fall asleep. I notice fresh brewing coffee for few seconds. Everyone was sleeping and I didn’t make any coffee at 3 am. Then around 5 am, I was awaken again by toddler. I was rocking my daughter and praying and for my family cituation. Again that fresh brewing coffee smell, i did enjoy because im coffer drinker. I cant expalin how or why ? Everyone was asleep except me. I certainally didnt make any coffee.
    Then, I woke early at 7 am to get my other daughter ready for school. Her and daddy left for the day. It was only my little and me again.
    I enter my room there was that fresh brewing coffee smell. No one made coffee in the morning. There were no candles on either.
    Im certainly God has listen my prayers. God Bless you all.

  219. yes I have the same thing happened to me3 nite ago it was sweeth I still can smell it like flower rose it was great I pray to the Lord .reads my bible pray God


  220. I had a similar experience last night. Strong smell of flowers woke me up. No fear. Anything new to add since this was last published? Or was it a singular event for you?

  221. Thanks for your comment Barb!

    I truly wish that I could say that it has happened to me since then, but sadly I cannot or I would be lying. Although it was a singular event for me it lasted for about a 24 hour period over and over again. However, I have had similar experiences with God, one time I was filled with the Holy Spirit or should I say overflowing, it was an exhilarating experience. Another time I was filled with God’s love, and I am sure that it was only a taste of His love, but it filled me completely, very intense and comforting. These are just two other times when God has touched me in the supernatural, the ones that stand out the most.

    God bless!

  222. Yessssssssss! Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will send his angels to minister unto Us
    According to the scriptures Hebrew 1 : 14 God sent his angels to minister unto those who inherited salvation of God.
    Sometimes we can sense his presence
    In musical instruments and sounds, Colors, numbers and smells.
    I experienced this call to praise and worship a
    All the time. Most of the time when I need directions or guidance God’s presence is revealed to just for know other reason but to let me know that he is with me and he just wants me to trust him more.
    Remember the scriptures say in Psalms 91 that he’s meaning (God our Father )
    Has given his angels Charge over us lest we dash our foot against a stone.
    The truth is God does not want us ever to hit a stone or brick. Meaning he doesn’t want us to get stuck or stumble. But ,he leaves it up to us to believe his word the Bible. But you can’t believe what we don’t know. So,to learn him we must study the words of wisdom from God’s word.
    So, now that I have said all of that sense of smell is just one way that God communicate
    with us. Once he see us searching for him
    Then he starts to reveal himself to us
    Chorlottiea, Harris

  223. Thanks for sharing Chorlottiea!

    God is good, and He wants to give us His peace and comfort, and I believe as you do also that He does so in many ways. And although not all of us have experienced the joy of the Lord in this way, we as believers should experience the Lord in one way or another.

    I know for myself that I am a very sensitive person, I always have been since I can ever remember. This has been both a curse and a blessing, however over the years I have learned how to turn it out for my good (I am certain that it was the Lord that did this for me). Having this sensitivity many times I have been able to sense things that other people have not, both good and bad things which were to happen shortly after, but also the presence of God Almighty!

    Perhaps if more believers would become sensitive to the things of God, then they too will experience the Lord in different ways! He is there, He is speaking to us, but are we aware?

    God bless my friend! Maranatha!

  224. Thank you so much Chorlottiea, Harris and this post. I’m also having this same thing happen to me. It’s been going on for two days know and I just love the fact of how God shows himself true to us.

  225. Same happen to me only I was coughing,after the sweet smell,it stayed for a while

  226. I had a bad dream and was awoken from it with the beautiful smell of perfume. I felt God close to me. Praise him always.

  227. Yes I have the same thing I smell flower like some one cook smoke I read in the bible God sweet savour 2corinthians14 and 15 16. I gave praise to God and thanking him
    i woke up the next morning I walk to the store I still smell the flower scent in the air I got a lot more to tell it went on for 5 day and nite

  228. So wierd, last night I was sleeping, and smelled a very nice fruity smell…it definitely wasn’t my breath….no candles or anything in my room…when I woke up..could still smell it..but went back to sleep..this never happened before to me..so puzzling..wonder what it was..

  229. Good day

    This happen to me as well one morning. I whoke up with this sweet smell then it was gone again and it left me with a happy feeling. Also not sure what is was and cant explain it.

  230. I had this experience as I woke from a dream this morning. Most amazing and beautiful frangrance. I wanted it to stay with me, but it left after a few seconds. I hope I experience this again as you have. God has allowed me to see an angel in my bedroom. It seems to be a holy place. I wondered if that wonderful frangrance was the fragrance of heaven.

  231. Yes! I have experience the aroma of food cooking in my house in the middle of the night but no one was cooking. I am a prayer warrior and intercessor. I also experience a sweet fragrance too.

  232. Last night i smell a string mens cologne its like an evil walkin around my house, i got up n rebuked in Jesus name

  233. Thanks for your comment Anonymous!

    I’m not really quite sure what to say about that, as I am speaking of smelling the aroma of God’s presence. You on the other hand seem to have experienced evil, not so good! Rebuke in the name of Jesus, resist the devil and his demons. I would also suggest that you remove any items in the house that may be attracting these spirits. Seek the Lord Jesus Christ, hold to His promises, stay close to God, remain focused on Him.

    God bless!

  234. I keep smelling a sweet fragrance that no one else smells. It reminds me of sweet pea jasmine. It comes and goes. I smell it more then 20 times a day. As I write this I smell it. Sometimes its really strong and last a minute then goes away only to return minutes later. Its not just in my home but every where I go, but my home is where its most strong and frequent. I’ve googled it finding out it could be a health issue which scares me yet I seem very healthy. I really enjoy the order. It smells so wonderful. I would just love to know why I smell it like I do and why I’m the only one who can smell iheaAny thoughts? Should I be concerned ?

  235. Thanks for your comment Jesusislove2016!

    I am no expert in giving medical advice, however visiting a doctor to make sure you are healthy is a good idea and one in which you should probably follow up with.

    With that being said, I know for a fact that the good Lord often speaks to us in many ways, one of these ways is through our sense of smell. It has happened to me as you most likely read about, yet it doesn’t continue to happen to me over and over again. I believe that if we are close to the Lord then He will allow us at times to smell His presence in order to comfort us and to show His good pleasure with us. Scripture mentions the aroma of God many times, so this is nothing that is made up by man, but is an actual fact of God Almighty!

    You say that you really enjoy this odor, not that it makes you feel uncomfortable or fearful, other than you are not sure what it is or what it may be a symptom of, so I would not worry about it but treasure it as a gift from God! However, I would still visit a physician since you are scared that it may be a health issue. Many times we may seem healthy but there are underlying issues which we are unaware of.

    Give God the thanks and glory, pray for wisdom, insight, and good health. Then visit a doctor, He gave them to us for a reason, one of the most published authors of the New Testament was a physician, Luke, a trained doctor and a preacher of the gospel! Nothing wrong with a check up.

    I pray that the good Lord, our great physician and healer, touches you with His mighty hands with His healing power and comforts you with His presence. In Jesus name, Amen.

    God bless!

  236. I have been having this the last 2 nights. I came to the internet to research as I’m sure there is great meaning. I also feel it is connected to Angels, just not completely sure why or why me.

  237. Hi, I have started to experience the exact same thing!! The smell comes & goes only lasts for a second or two, disperses & then returns. The only thing I did before this was pray out loud to God, I asked him to cast out all demons in my home & my heart & told Satan my soul belongs to God through Jesus Christ his son. As soon as I did this the sweet candy floss smell keeps coming to me. I truly believe this is the work of God as at the moment I asked him to cast out sin from my life the smell keeps coming. Jesus is my saviour I truly believe this. Gods love & light is more powerful then even the church has taught us & I truly believe our world is in the grip of Satan right now. We need to cast him out & fill our lives with Gods glory & love knowing we are saved through his embodiment in Jesus Christ.

  238. Thanks for sharing your experience Zoe!

    I also believe that this is the good Lord making His presence known to you sister. He is giving you peace and comfort.

    The world is in the grip of Satan, however we are not of this world and He who is in us is greater then he who is in the world! Satan will perform his will with the world, however God Almighty will also perform His will which is much greater than Satan’s will. God allows Satan to do what he does, he can only do it if God allows him to. Like you said, God is so much more powerful than what many of us believe, and if His power if limited it is only because we are the ones who limit it, we put God in a box! There is no limit to God’s power, of His love, His mercy, and His grace.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  239. Hi! I came upon your site because I too, have wondered about such an olfactory oddity. And I put in the search engine , ” scriptural references to the scent of roses ” ….which brought me to your site and others.
    Yes, I too, am a Follower of Christ, a Christian.
    I have never before experienced anything like this until within the past year. It has occurred to me on several occasions. A couple of times after awakening from sleep during the wee hours of the morning. It was such gentle, yet strong waft of roses. Since I had woken up suddenly, there was no preconceived thought on my mind to explain this. I told a close Christian friend of this within a few days of it happening. She was aware of such things happening.
    The other ocassions were within the last 6 weeks. Both times occurred as I was reading my Bible from bed.
    Just for a little background which may give some insight? I have been in process of a divorce for over a year ( NC law requirements)and it has been a particularly difficult considering all the factors. This has been an extremely challenging time for me spiritually and of course, personally. I have really had to draw close to the Lord for so much at this time. Perhaps that is why I have had these occurrences? All I can guess is that they have been part of God’s “mysterious signs and wonders ” to let me know He is so very close and present to me during this time. It definitely gets your attention and humility before Him. I am most honored with the occurrences. I too, would love to hear from other Christians on this!

  240. Last night I woke up to the smell of a strong perfume. It was a beautiful fragrance. Its been on my mind all morning. I can’t figure out if it was a dream or reality. I’m not a religious person. Having faith in God has always been a real struggle. I want to believe that there is a higher being but it’s hard for me when I see so much pain and suffering all around me. Anyway it bothered me enough to search the web and see if anyone else experienced this. I sure hope it doesn’t mean I’m dying soon.

  241. Thanks for sharing Deb!

    I for one truly believe that this is the good Lord speaking to us, giving us His peace and comfort. I believe that when we draw near to Him then for some reason or another He blesses us with such things, although not all believers have had the awesome privilege of having this experience.

    For me personally it was during a time of great tribulation in my life, and I found it very comforting to say the least!

    God bless!

  242. Thanks for sharing Dawn!

    I cannot really say if this was from God or not, however He is speaking to you. First of all, what is a religious person? I am very close to God but I don’t consider myself “religious” whatsoever. I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ, He is my Lord and Savior, the one I seek in and for all things.

    You need to understand that God did not create this pain and suffering in the world, it came about by Satan and man’s disobedience to God, by “our” rebellion to Him not the other way around. It was never meant to be the way that it is now. The good Lord Jesus Christ gave Himself as a sacrifice for all of our sins, past, present, and future. He loves us so much that He came down to earth as both God and man, to give His own life so that we could live with Him forever! So that we could escape what is coming upon the world, so that we would not have to be separated from Him for eternity in hell, but to have everlasting life in heaven with Him, that means forever!

    God just maybe giving you this scent to wake you up to the truth. Whatever the case if it continues you should seek medical advice. I am not you so I cannot tell you what you should do, but if that happened to me I would be down on my knees repenting of my sins and asking the good Lord to forgive me! I literally would be crying out to God (Jesus Christ) to save me and give me eternal life.

    You can focus on the world and its sorrows, or you can focus on God, His mercy and His grace! God often brings us to our knees in repentance through very difficult and trying times in our lives. Don’t wait until things get so bad that you just can’t stand it anymore! That happened to me, both before I was saved and then again after I drifted away from God. Please read my book posted on the margin on the right hand side of this blog (Overcoming the darkness with Jesus Christ). In it you will find that the good Lord brought me back out of darkness, from deep down in the pit of despair and hopelessness. Even though I was saved and still going to heaven I was living without God as the center of my life, and I have paid the price for it!

    The bible is the truth of God and His word. It is not only the truth but is proven over and over again to be true! There are over 300 bible prophecies about the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ that have all come true with 100% accuracy. The odds of one man fulfilling these prophecies without them being the truth are impossible, without Jesus Christ actually being who He said that He is! There are many other things in the bible which are proven to be true through science, astronomy, and archeology, all you have to do is search them out.

    Take care Dawn, I hope and pray that the good Lord opens your eyes and softens your heart to the truth!

    God bless!

  243. Yes, this too hasbeen an extremely sad and difficult time in my life. I am increasingly appreciative of my belief in God ….so much if a rock, an anchor during such times. I am only half joking to friends when I say no wonder the world and people are so crazy! If they don’t have a relationship with the Lord( even then, our trials can sure test us to the max!) It’s no wonder! Yes, I feel so honored in accepting that these occurrences we’re from the Lord. I have to say it gave me a wonderful sensation of being surrounded in love. How wonderful for Our Sweet Lord to manifest Himself during these times when He knows we need that special touch/scent from heaven for reassurance. So glad I found your site…as I too wanted to avoid New Age slant…..I much prefer a scriptural insight!

  244. Thanks for your comment Deb!

    You are so right as to not search out worldly insights into this experience, they will lead you astray and down the wrong path!

    God is so good! I am so thankful to God that you are His dear child my friend! We can and do go through trials and tribulations in our life. The Lord often makes His presence known to us if we are saved especially during times of trouble. Smelling the presence of God is not widespread, yet there are many believers I have discovered who have had the same experience with the Lord.

    I feel so blessed to have had this experience with and of God, and I know you do as well, and we should, for not many believers have. We have experienced God at a different level, a level which has given us new insight and knowledge of God.

    Christians need to be aware of God’s presence, we need to also be listening to Him, for many do not hear nor do they experience because they do not believe.

    God bless sister! Maranatha!

  245. I woke up last night about 325am with the sweet smell of baking cookies/cake. I believe that it is a higher presence, spirit, an angel. It was a good feeling.
    Whatever was holding me down I felt relieved this morning. God Bless all!!

  246. I was laying in bed this morning and was just relaxing and suddenly smelled cotton candy. The smell lingered for a few minutes then it was gone. I have never experienced this before but I immediately thought it was God’s spirit or an angel. I prayed and got up and went right to my computer to look up what it could mean. I am amazed that this has happened to others. I feel so comforted by this! I feel like God is letting me know he is there. God bless us all…

  247. Thanks for sharing Agnes!

    Yes, God does make us aware of His presence in many ways for that very reason, to give us His peace and comfort.

    I am curious as to what words you used when you were searching the internet and found this site? Do you happen to remember?

    God bless! Maranatha!

  248. To our lord he draws closer to us. His love is sweet and I smell this sweet potent smell like cotton candy but better. That’s the only wY I can discrib the scent above my right shoulder for about. 2 seconds. And it goes away. I don’t wear perfume or have any perfumes in my room. And this happens when am reading my bible and or praying. I responded to his scent hi lord. 😊

  249. I too have smelled something very sweet and undiscribable right after I
    had a religious vision. I googled the wonderful smell and something came up
    about the smell of Christ.

  250. I too have had the pleasure of smelling the “sweet pea- jasmine” scent many times in the past couple months! I know it is my spirit guide- I can feel her nearby. It happens in the morning usually when I am waking up and still laying in bed. I will smell it 3-4 times for a few seconds each time. I feel happy and peaceful when I smell it. It seems like she is saying good morning and letting me know she is there. It’s such a wonderful gift and I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who experiences this. 🙂

  251. Thanks for sharing Brandy!

    You must be very careful about spirits, there are good spirits and evil spirits, evil spirits which disguise themselves as angels of light! No where in Christianity or the bible does it say that we have spirit guides other than the Holy Spirit Himself. In fact we are warned by God to stay away from familiar spirits.

    2 Corinthians 11:13-15
    “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.”

    Leviticus 19:31
    “Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.”

    The good Lord Jesus Christ has created angels to look after us, to minister to us, and yes even to help guide us, but they are just that, God’s angels. They were created for God’s glory just as we were created in His image to glorify our Father in heaven.

    You can believe what you want to, but I am telling you the truth! Do not be deceived, great deceptions are running rampant in these end times.

  252. Last night I smelled a combination of rose and lilac. I was reading messages from ministers on Facebook that really touched my soul. I have never smelled flowers before and we don’t have fresh flowers in the house. I do know Yeshua smells like roses sometimes.

  253. Hi everybody. Im writing this 4:30 am in the morning. Im an expat working in the middle east. A few hours ago i was experiencing insomnia and I couldn’t sleep until 1 am. Suddenly around 3:26AM i woke up to this distinct smell i only smell around arab people. Its the distinct smell of oud otherwise known as agarwood. I feel a little frightened because why would a smell of oud be prrsent in my room if nobody used it. All of us in the apartment are asleep and no one uses this perfume. I immediately reached for my rosary and prayed to The Almighty Father to protect me from any spirits present that are there to harm me. I don’t exactly know what happened if that smell meant anything. For what its worth it smelled good like a perfume but i was just being cautious because it could also mean a presence i know nothing of. I grew from a superstitious family in souteast asia but i am a millenial. I don’t usually believe in supernatural.

  254. Thanks for your comment Nutrix!

    If you smelled something that wasn’t there and you feel frightened of it then it was more than likely not good spirits. You live in the Middle East where there are many spirits not of God.

    I am not Catholic so I do not believe in the Rosary, it is not found anywhere in scripture, I only believe in the power of God Almighty (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), you did the right thing by praying to God. Believers in Jesus Christ are protected from these spirits by Christ, they cannot harm us if God does not allow them to. As long as you are born-again then you have Christ in you, and when you pray in the name of Jesus they will shudder and flee.

    I am not superstitious at all, but I most definitely believe in the supernatural! God is supernatural, His power is supernatural, His love is supernatural.

    I don’t know if you are a born-again believer in Jesus Christ, but this is the only way to have true peace, to have eternal life! A person must repent of their sins and accept Christ as their Lord and Savior in order to have everlasting life. Once this is done their is nothing on this earth that can harm our soul, it belongs to God forever! We all need Jesus Christ, a personal relationship with God whether we think that we do or not, perhaps this is a wake up call to seek Him.

    God bless!

  255. Hi folks! I’ve had visitations my entire life, some bad and some good. If you notice one thing, most times this happens is after 3am. Same with me. I was awakened last night around 3am, the very strong fragrance of the jasmine gardenia fragrance. I peacefully went back to sleep. Last week I had a very strong breath blow on my face to wake me up, it started me greatly and I shouted for it to leave me alone. This also happened after 3am. I suffer terribly from sleep apnea and do not wear a mask so unfortunately I stop breathing for long periods. I am quite positive that’s what happened last night, not wanting to frighten me by blowing on me, instead I was awakened by the strong fragrance. I have many many stories I could share but not enough time on here. Three is a universal number that spirit communicates with. Next time, write down the times and you will see the pattern. Love and peace to all.

  256. Thanks for your comment Aida Garcia!

    You must be very careful about spirits and these “visitations” that you are speaking about, you even said that some are bad and some are good.

    There is but one God, Jesus Christ, however there are many spirits not of God and many imitating God and His angels. Only the things of God are good. And if you are being visited by both bad and good spirits then there is a reason for it.

    Jesus said: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). Just perhaps Jesus is standing at your door and knocking.

    On the other hand, evil spirits will come dressed as angels of light, deceiving and teaching false doctrines, doctrines of demons!

    1 John 4:1
    “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

    2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
    “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

    If you are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ then I would not worry, however, if you are unsaved then I would worry a lot! And if you are being visited by evil spirits then I would wonder just what in the world is going on and why is it happening?! And if I wasn’t worried about it then I would certainly want to know why! Regular visits by evil spirits is not a good thing.

    God bless!

  257. Yes sir,I certainly do.I have scents all around me of,sandlewood,cotton candy,vanilla,orange,blueberry muffins, roses.It was in my apartment n all ‘ll who walked by thought I was baking.A gentleman had opened my door n HE said wow,wow,your hose smells like Roses,wow, Linda.I said without thinking it is the Holy Spirit,Patrick.I had not anything in my house to give off that scent of any fragrance.
    I am a Prayer warrior n I know now as the scents follow me to other homes even.as I visit n I know it is of the Lord n Holy Spirit following me,sir.I have aloe more I could tell you also.It is amazing what God has opened me up to see everyday.His beauty of colors as well,flowers.

  258. I’ve experienced this scent before. My son has a scent that comes upon him because he’s anointed. My scent smelled like fresh baked cookies.

  259. I was in my car a few days ago and I was listening to a song “Breath of Heaven” and feeling heartbroken because of a tragedy that happened to one of my little boys friends and his family a year ago (it still affects me and I still cry about it) and all of a sudden for just a few seconds the scent of gardenia or jazmin flower mixed with cotton candy was in my car. There are no food places or anything in the area where I was that could have caused it. I was thinking it was Jesus making his presence known and comforting me❤️

  260. I’ve been reading the comments because I just had a similar experience today. I want to let you know that when I searched Google, I entered something like ” the smell of flowers in the bible”. When I first searched, I didn’t add “in the bible”, and I was getting information that I was unsure of. I wanted to be certain that I found something biblical. I’m glad I found your site. I’ve been talking to God a lot the past few days about something I desperately need His help with. This afternoon, in my home, there was a very strong, lovely, smell of flowers. It lasted for several minutes, so it was unmistakable. And again, this evening, I smelled it again, though, not as strong, and not lasting as long. I had heard years ago that it meant that someone who had died and was close to you, was paying a visit. Now that I am born again, I look to God’s word for answers. It’s nice to find that others are having the same kinds of experiences. God bless you for sharing! Come, Lord Jesus!!!

  261. Thanks for your comment bookstogolibrary!

    God is good and He lets us know it! I believe that He is letting you know that He is with you, that He hears you, and that He loves you, He is comforting you!

    Do not be deceived by the world telling you that this is a spirit of a lost loved one, for we are not to communicate with the dead, this is necromancy and is forbidden by God.

    Deuteronomy 18:9-14
    “When you have come into the land which Yahweh your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found with you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices sorcery, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer, 11 or a charmer, or a consulter with a familiar spirit, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh. Because of these abominations, Yahweh your God drives them out from before you. 13 You shall be perfect with Yahweh your God. 14 For these nations that you shall dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery and to diviners; but as for you, Yahweh your God has not allowed you so to do.”

    Some people claim that their lost loved ones visit them, that they even see them, however I believe that these are either visions of some sort, wishful thinking, or evil spirits, perhaps all of the above. Scripture tells us that once we die we cannot come back.

    Luke 16:22-31
    “So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

    27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”

    When the unsaved die they go to Hades, when the saved die they go to be with the Lord. The rich man (unsaved) wished that he could go back to earth to warn his loved ones, but he wasn’t able to leave. Once we die we cannot go back and visit loved ones, our spirits are either with God or in Hades, depending upon whether or not we are saved. And if we are saved when we die then we are with the Lord forever, we don’t return to earth until Christ does.

    Communicating with the dead (necromancy) is evil and an abomination to the Lord, it is written in scripture. Those that do are actually communicating with evil spirits not their loved ones. I am not trying to be harsh, these are the words of the Lord! They are written because they are the truth, God tells us these things because they are for our own good.

    I’m not here to tell you what to do, obviously you went to God and that is exactly what you should do in all things. This is also what I do, I humble myself before God, I repent of all of my sins, I ask Him to forgive me although I know He already has, I praise Him, worship Him, and thank Him. I then ask Him to help me with my problem, then I remember and recall all that He has done for me in the past, everything that I can remember Him helping me with, all of the miraculous things that He has done in my life, this reinforces my faith, it builds my trust in Him. I give Him thanks for helping me and I trust that He will see me through, in His way, in His timing.

    God bless! Maranatha!

  262. Strange thing, but when I was reading my daily bible verse (today Psalm 146) there suddently came this cream toffee like scent for few seconds. It reminds åme of werther’s original candy scent. It lead me to this site with google search ‘toffee smell bible’

    And yeah no candy lying around here in the bed.

  263. Thanks for your comment Anton!

    God is good and He often lets us know of His presence by things such as these smells. The bible is replete with verses about the aromas of God. I suggest you google them, but read the verses straight from scripture.

    Song of Solomon 1:3 “Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth”

    Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

    Exodus 30:22-25
    “Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 23 “Also take for yourself quality spices—five hundred shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much sweet-smelling cinnamon (two hundred and fifty shekels), two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet-smelling cane, 24 five hundred shekels of cassia, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, and a hin of olive oil. 25 And you shall make from these a holy anointing oil, an ointment compounded according to the art of the perfumer. It shall be a holy anointing oil.”

    Sweet smelling fragrances and aromas are important to God, they have meaning.

    Exodus 30:7-8
    “Aaron shall burn on it sweet incense every morning; when he tends the lamps, he shall burn incense on it. 8 And when Aaron lights the lamps at twilight, he shall burn incense on it, a perpetual incense before the Lord throughout your generations.”

    God bless! Maranatha!

  264. Hi all.. my mum was very ill with a brain infection. And told she had 1% chance of surving . In this intense time we prayed hard for a miracle healing. Late one night my dad smelt a strong candy floss ( or cotton candy if your from the USA ) scent ! I then smelt it. And happened to be recording my dad taking about it. ( just to show my friend on WhatsApp) but what I picked up on the recording was incredible! Supernatural sounds of whistling and clicking and clapping in response to my dads words … all very cheery and positive. We believe these wee angels. And the candy floss scent was the Holt spirit . Our beautiful mum was saved! And she has made a full recovery. We are so grateful to the higher poets looking after her. Reading about other people’s sweet aroma experiences is evidence Just we are all being protected by angels and god . Thankyou xxx amen

  265. Thanks for sharing Christie!

    That is so awesome! I believe with all of my heart and my spirit that the good Lord at times allows us to be aware of His presence by His aroma, His sweet smelling aroma! How awesome and a great testimony!

    God bless! Maranatha!

  266. I believe good smells are from good and bad smells are from the evil one. From my experience, once I went to ballot for a Spiritual retreat and really wanted to go for it but I did not get it and was disappointed. And a thought came into my mind blaming God etc and also smelled a burning smell when there was none, i rebuked the Spirit which carries the smell and say “ get behind me u Sxxx, I don’t need u”

    A separate occasion I smell flowers scent in church at the pew I was sitting and near the tabernacle and it was lilies. And the flowers at the front was not even lilies.

    Another occasion in church at the side entrance I smell red wine coming into the church it was as if someone just drank wine and cake in.

    Another was sweet flowery fragrance around Mary’s grotto once when the church had a retreat for parishioners and we had to pray for the faith of all who participated.

    Once I prayed for a sister’s grandmother who got martyred ( catholic and refused to give in to the request of the rebel to recite the Koran) in the village by extremists and I prayed for her Soul. I smelled mandarin oranges and choc in the late hours of the night and do not know why and asked the sister if it mean anything to her. It was her late grandmother’s favourite foods.

    The more recent one is on my late grandfather’s death anniversary, I prayed for his soul and I passed a message of reconciliation and forgiveness I had received of him to give to my uncle and auntie. That afternoon I had also asked for prayers for him since mass could not be carried out still during this covind 19 period. I smelled cotton candy or maltose near me . The same day I saw a rainbow when it was not even raining before that. I know it was my grandfather showing me he’s in heaven and happy.

    All the scents and fragrances can come from good spirits and bad smells from evil spirits.

    God bless!

  267. The other night when I stood up from my desk, I smelt a sweetness in the air. I was talking to a friend on the phone when it happened. I told her I smell a sweetness in the air. She said she was also smelling a sweetness in the air at the same time. I know its from Jesus and God and the Holy Ghost. I know they are all very real and alive with us in these times, it brought a feeling of peace. God Bless us all in these times. warm hugssssss thru God, in Jesus name Amen

  268. Thanks for your comment Joy Lipski!

    It is so awesome to be aware of God’s presence, nothing else like it! Remember, God is always with us, the Holy Ghost is always within us as children of God Almighty. And sometimes He may even let us know it by things as a sweet smelling aroma, the aroma of God. What better time for this to happen then during times of trouble and adversity. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless! Maranatha! Gordon

  269. Yes I have had this experience!!! I do believe we have a biblical sense of smell. I have a page on my phone that i reference called “heaven scent” but not everything is on there. Last night i smelt my grandmother, and i saw a vision of a little old lady coming in my room. The message she gave me had a # on it and it referenced a covenant between 2 people. U c i have been praying over the guy i am dating being my future husband. Sorry got off track! U can message me at elshelton.es@gmail.com. I have some smells that God revealed to me that I can share meanings of!
