Maybe a certain perfume/cologne with a person...or maybe the smell of apple pie with summers spent at your grandparents? stuff like that...
one unusual one for me is that the smell of gasoline reminds me of my grandfather. he owns a farm and I remember when I'd visit and he'd walk in from working on a tractor or truck or something outside how he'd smell of gasoline.
Clinique Happy is what my dad always wore for years & Estee Lauder Beautiful is what my mom always wears so whenever I smell either (or something similar) I think of them.

I remember when I was little my mom used to take my brothers and I to church. Well, a lot of the ladies in church would have this certain sweet smelling perfume. It seemed as if they all wore the same perfume. Well, now every time my mom has me smell a perfume similar to that of those ladies at church I would say "Mom that smell s like the ladies at church". It smells just like the perfume the ladies at church would wear.
There is also this special nice cologne that Mexican guys/men often use. It smells good :) haha, but yeah, when I smell a guy with that certain smell it reminds me of bars, clubs, even Mexican parties I've gone to when I was little. I still can remember all the smells that attracted me when I smell them on people now.
There's one more: but it's not something I smell anymore... have you ever smelled cinnamon in water? Well, my mom used to put cinnamon to boil in water and then she would make it into a nice sweet aroma spreading across the air in the living room after adding some sugar. :) It really made the whole house smell like cinnamon.1
