If you're new to our guides, I crack each word game and share the solutions to keep both my streak and yours alive for another day. Firstly, there are some hints, in case you want a little nudge to try and solve it yourself, followed by the answer.

'Wordle' hints

As the title suggests, you may just be here to get some hints for today's Wordle without actually wanting to see the answer itself. I got quite lucky with today's answer, but that's rarely the case, and I could often do with some hints when attempting to solve the game.

Here are a few hints that might give you just enough to get there yourself, but if not, don't worry, as I managed to solve today's Wordle, and I've provided the solution above.

  • The answer starts with the letter S.
  • The definition of the word 'a distinctive smell, especially one that is pleasant.'
  • The word has one vowel.
