Default What would Amortentia smell like to you?

Amortentia is the most powerful Love Potion in existence. It does not create actual love, but it does cause a powerful infatuation or obsession. As we learned in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it has a different aroma for everyone who smells it. This aroma reminds each person of the things that they find most attractive, even if the person doesn't acknowledge or is unaware of their fondness for the object of their affection themselves.

In the Harry Potter series, we know the aromas for two specific individuals:
  • Harry Potter - treacle tart, the woody scent of broomstick handle, and Ginny Weasley
  • Hermione Granger - freshly mown grass, new parchment, and (revealed by J.K. Rowling) Ron Weasley's hair
Speculate on the other characters of the Potter universe: What aromas would they smell if they took a good whiff of Amortentia? Why do you think so? If you happened to come across a cauldron or vial of Amortentia, what would you smell and why?

The smell of gasoline (oh yes, I love that smell)
Freshly cut wood
And I'm doing an Hermione and I'm not saying...
about harry potter : "a generation grew up with them."
"why do you live?" "because I have something worth living for."

He couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in
secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and
saying in hushed voices: “To Harry Potter — the boy who lived!"
