Smell by far
That's how I remember a lot of things
Since my eyesight is about blind my sense of smell is quite strong

Scent, for sure. A few I can name are the smell of a certain kind of plaster, the smell of body paint and hairspray, my grandma's house, and a mango nectar drink smell. All of these remind me of like, specific events in my childhood. There are tons more. But I have a very sensitive nose :0

It's strange that despite having a sensitive nose that any strong smells will make me gag for a couple seconds, and yet sight really still does provide me with the most nostalgia. Even when some other sense does trigger the nostalgia, the first thing I would do is Visualise it. Also, my mind often tends to trigger nostalgia on it's owned when I flip through memories and what not whenever.

♪ How do I say goodbye to what we had? The good times that made us laugh, outweigh the bad. I thought we'd get to see forever, but forever's gone away. It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday♪

I have this odd feeling. There's a handful of locations where my entire body returns to the world of an eight year old boy. When it's gone it leaves sadness and regret that I can't feel it ever again. I didn't think this fit in those five senses so I marked "Other".

Sound. If its someone whispering, or just hearing someone talk, I get shivers-

Scent.
I collect candles, and there have been a number of times I've found one at a store and just suddenly thought "Wow, this is exactly like the air freshener at that hotel/soap my grandmother's house/incense my dance teacher uses."
