QotD: Scents & Sensibilities

What's the strongest association you have between a scent and a memory?

I don't know if it's the strongest, but recently on a foggy morning I smelled slightly burnt gasoline, and that took me back to memories of vacationing on a lake in Maine when I was little. We lived in a tiny house on a tiny island for 2 weeks, and I remember bringing our boat back to the mainland and filling the tank from the pump at South Arm campground. Based out of that same dock was a pontoon boat that would make a run to deliver mail to the shores and islands of the lake at dawn and dusk.
