You Smell Smoke
The smell of smoke can trigger good thoughts. The aroma of pine burning in a fireplace after Christmas or around a campfire. But, if you're in your home and the odor of an electrical fire permeates the house and panic shoots through your limbs it's a different story. You run to warn others that fire is a real threat. Write a scene based on the smell of smoke. Is the smell of smoke a good thing or a scary thing. Show the reader what to feel.
