Wake up and smell the roses?

Posted by Ed Williams on January 07, 2002

A couple of weeks ago on "Who want to be a millionaire?" a question came up as follows: Complete the following phrase "wake up and smell the......?" both I and the quizz program said it was "Roses", but my girlfriend and dad seem to think its "coffee", could somebody please solve the question and tell me where the phrase came from?
