This happened to me a couple of days ago. It was in the middle of the day and being winter was also quite cold so I had all the windows and doors shut. I was walking into my kitchen and just as I was passing my pantry I was hit by this sweet floral smelling scent/perfume. I stopped walking, turned around and went back to the pantry to work out where the smell was coming from, only to find it was no longer there. One second I smelt it and the next it was gone. It wasn't a faint smell, it was quite strong, so for it to vanish as quickly as it did was very strange.
The house I live in is around 30 years old and I've been living there for 6 years with my family. This is the first time I have smelt what I believe to be a ghost.
6 months prior to this I was woken by my baby daughter early one morning wanting to be fed. Being sleep deprived I sat up in bed awake but blinking madly as my eyes didn't want to stay open. Whilst I was blinking I saw a young person (early teens) standing at the foot of our bed (on my husbands side) staring at him. When I blinked again it was gone. I didn't mention this to anyone thinking I was going mad or so sleep deprived that I was seeing things.
So when I smelt that fragrance the other day it confirmed for me that we have another resident in our home.
I have also seen things at work (a couple of years ago) and so has my eldest daughter who was only 6 months at the time. It was early in the evening and I had finished sorting out the work I was going to take home for the weekend. My husband was downstairs going through his emails and I was waiting for him with my daughter upstairs surfing the net. We were the only ones in the factory at that time.
My daughter was standing on my lap looking over my shoulder. She suddenly turned her head to the corner of the room and kept staring there. I asked her what she was looking at and turned around to see what had her attention. The expression on her face was of awe. I couldn't see anything and there was nothing in that corner of the room. But she continued to stare in that direction.
She then starts to turn her head as though she is following something across the room so she is now looking in the opposite corner. I ask her again "what are you looking at?" and just as I turn my head to look, in the corner of my eye I see this brilliant golden flash of light. When I looked directly in that direction I could see nothing. I looked back at my daughter who was still staring there but instead of a look of awe she had a big smile on her face.
She couldn't talk at the time but her reaction and her expressions said it all and I definitely saw something as well. The funny thing was I didn't feel scared.
