aroma

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a smell' is the definition.
('aroma' can be a synonym of 'smell')

'roam around after' is the wordplay.
'around' indicates anagramming the letters.
'after' becomes 'a' (this might be a standard abbreviation I've not previously seen).
'roam' anagrammed gives 'arom'.
'arom'+'a'='AROMA'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for aroma that I've seen before include "Food fragrance" , "Pervasive quality" , "Savour" , "Spicy fragrance" , "A pleasant smell as of food" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
