If San Diego had an official smell, it'd be the coast — specifically, the salty ocean air, sunscreen and surf wax — according to Axios readers who took our poll last week.

  • With 42% of the vote, beach smells were the clear winner.

The runner-up: The scent of fresh sage on hiking trails and from canyons, particularly after it rains.

The bad news: Readers voted for excrement over tacos.
