3AM Pipe Smoke & Other Misadventures/u/Chasso474

Afternoon all. I've been wanting to share some odd happenings that I have experienced for a while, and this sub seemed like the perfect place to do it.

Around a year ago or so, I was in the toilet going about my business at around 3 to 3:30 in the morning when a weird smell filled the room. It smelt like old wood, smoke, and had a kind of sweet tinge to it, if that makes sense. It lasted about 20 seconds or so and then went away. The next morning, I told my mum about my experience. She had been telling me stories of how she had smelled phantom pipe smoke from time to time for years, and I wondered if what I smelt was pipe smoke too. After describing the odour that I had caught a whiff of to her, she confirmed my suspicions.

Now for the interesting bit. My mum thinks that the pipe smoke might belong my great grandpa, as he always used to smoke from a pipe. Sadly, I never got to meet him as he passed away decades before I was born. There could be an rational explanation to this. Perhaps the previous owner of my house smoked a pipe as well, and left some residue from the smoke in the walls or something. When I had my experience however, I had been living in this house for around 9 years, and had never smelt anything like it before.

A few months after this first encounter, it actually happened again. I was in the bathroom at an ungodly hour and caught a whiff of smoke again, although this time it was only for a split second. I haven't smelt it since however, but my mum continues to smell it quite often. Her last experience was only a couple of weeks ago.

Now, I'm aware that this might not be the most exciting story on this sub, but this event has really stuck with me and is the only proper paranormal experience I've had. Thanks for reading this ramble, have a good one.
