Re: Memorable odours and perfumes

My Grandmother's perfume was Diorissimo. I still can recognize it and whenever I pass by a Dior stand I remember about her.

I start using Dr Hauschka Rose Cream when I was in vacations in Greece. Every time I open the bottle now, I just remember of that time by the sea. Just a feeling of warmth and happiness...

oh God! you are giving me nighmares now. That is such an evocative reminder of times past.
I love the smell of books, new ones naturally, but also old and mouldy because I imagine there is old knowledge hidden in them.
I love the smell of home and only very recently has our Swiss flat started to develop one.
I sometimes smell different kinds of perfume that I used to wear in different periods of my life and they always bring back vivid memories, for example Anais Anais when I was in love for the first time.
I love to smell my cats, in particular the top of their heads.

Oh, Anais Anais! For me, that is a broken heart... I still get slightly sad when I smell it. But, Don Algodón - that one still makes me smile.

Re: Memorable odours and perfumes

I had quite forgotten, (but have just been reminded from looking back through this thread), about the delicous smell of tomatoes growing in a greenhouse. When I was very young we lived in a house on the sea in Cornwall, and all I can remember from then is a garden, the sea and the most amazing smell from the tomatoes in the greenhouse. Even now, when I smell that gorgeous, green smell of tomatoes on the vine I am transported back.
