Do you ever feel like you are taking a mini trip back in time when you get a whiff of a scent you used to wear??
For some reason, I’ve worn certain scents which captured a certain moment in my life. For example, I discovered Bath and Body Works in 5th grade and was obsessed with Sun Ripened Raspberry:
Then I moved on to Plumeria for 6th grade:
And Sweet Pea for 7-9th grade:
Anytime I smell either one of those scents I get taken back to a time of braces, awkward hair, cross country meets, boys who didn’t like me, school plays, and dance recitals.
Then I moved on to Victoria Secret’s Love Spell in 10th grade:
And graduated to real PERFUME, Ralph by Ralph Lauren, the summer before 11th grade:
Throw some Body Wash in there for Senior Year …. I went on a cruise (where I met my hubsby) and used something tropical every day in the shower. To the day, I’ll get a whiff of it and it takes me back to 2003 on the Carnival Victory.
In college, freshman and sophmore year I wore Burberry and Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue….
Then Mr. Bear (who was my bf at the time) turned me on to Gucci….
