positive smells encourage us to eat it (not that we would eat grass ).
ITS A FRESH SCENT.. IT OPENS THE BLADE UP AND THE MOISTURE INSIDE, THE BLADES MUST BLEED, IF YOU WILL, CAUSING THE SCENT... WHY WE LIKE THE SCENT IS A DIFFERENT STORY.. I FIND FRESHLY CUT WOOD APPEALING TO MY NOSE...ALSO, THE SCENT OF PINE! FRESH NEW SCENT...! HEALTHY GREEN SENSATIONS COME TO MIND.. TO ME IT TRIGGERS MY PLEASANT THOUGHT OF SPRING.. ITS AS IF, COMING OUT OF THE WINTER AND SURVIVING IT PRODUCES NEW GROWTH WITH THE WARMTH OF THE SUN..... CUTTING THE GRASS IS NOT A NATURAL IN BUILT OCCURRANCE... SO I THINK IT STEMS FROM OUR OWN HEADS AND IN THE FACT THAT IT TRIGGERS THE THOUGHTS OF WARMTH AND SPRING SUMMER GROWTH AND WELL BEING.. LIFTS DEPRESSION SOME AND HELPS REMOVE THE SOMETIME LONG DRAGGING GLOOM THAT CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE END OF A VERY LONG HARSH WINTER.. TIME FOR THE GOODNESS OF VITAMIN C AND D FROM THE SUN TO PERK US UP! MY OPINION.. HOWEVER UNEDUCATED!

Welp, I sorry Ha. thanks for you input guys:)
It looks as though the smells are due to C6 aldehydes and alcohols. This paper gives a fairly good review of what happens when grass decomposes.http://northcountrynotes.org/jason-rohrer/natureOnTrial/cut_grass_pollution.pdf
Emissions of VOCs from grasses, including cut grass,may contribute significantly to urban air pollution. Thebiological mechanisms driving these emissions arepartially understood. The few measurements availableindicate that these emissions may be of the order of onefifth to one third of the VOC emissions in an urbanairshed averaged over a year and the growing season,respectively. Since the photochemical reactivities of theVOC emissions from grass mowing are high, there is aneed to reliably quantify these emissions if urbaninventories and smog forecasts are to be accurate.
Well it might not smell to great to some people, but I haven't came across a person that don't think to smells bad even if they don't like it.SO why is that
