Ack! There are so many! I have a pretty good sense of smell (both a blessing and a curse), so my head is filled with memories that are tied to scents.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for Men. Now, he’s not a big fragrance guy, but he will wear this every once in a while…to make me happy.
Pizza dough. Yep. I have no idea why or how (maybe he orders pizza when I’m not home), but every once in a while I catch a whiff of raw pizza dough. It’s so weird! Not bad, but weird.
Christian Dior Poison. She’s been wearing it since forever!
Romeo Gigli Eau de Parfum. Okay, it’s actually a women’s fragrance, but somewhere along the way my dad bogarted a bottle that originally belonged to my mom. And he loves the stuff. I guess the green notes in it do give it a kind of masculine feel.
Incense and Axe Body Spray. LOL! When I moved back home for a while after college, my brother’s room always reeked of both of these.
Kenzo Flower. She likes light, clean scents.
All of my aunties in the ’80s
EstÃ©e Lauder White Linen. Apparently, EstÃ©e Lauder White Linen back then was THE fragrance du jour if you were a Filipino woman in your thirties. If it wasn’t White Linen, then EL’s Beautiful would also do.
What scents remind you of the people in your life?
