The first night I hung out with the guy that would later become my husband I told him that scent is the one of the strongest forms of memory.
And for me that is so true. I've always been very "loyal" to a certain scents or perfumes throughout the years of my life, so whenever I smell a certain scent it takes me right back to that time in my life.
So I though it would be fun to take journey through the scents I've worn over the years. My "Scent Memories..."
Middle School and early High School - Bath & Body Works Sun-Ripened Raspberry
I wasn't allowed to wear perfume yet, so I loaded up on the sun-ripened raspberry body splash and lotion. The smell will always remind me of my teeny-booper days.
Sophomore and Junior year of High School - Roxy Hula
I felt like a chic little surfer girl in this stuff. I'm sad they don't make it anymore, I'd love to get a whiff of it.
Senior Year of High School through Sophomore Year of College - Tommy Girl
My first real "designer" perfume. One whiff of Tommy girl and I'm 18 again going to my first fraternity parties.
Junior and Senior Year of College - Michael by Michael Kors
My best friend wore this scent and I loved it so much that I started wearing it too. This is the perfume I was wearing when I met the Mr. and on my 21st birthday. When I smell it I think, "ahhh, to be barely legal again."
First years out of College (2005-2007) - Marc by Marc Jacobs
I'm not sure how I started wearing this. I was wearing it the night that the Mr. proposed to me. It will always remind me of Manhattan Beach summers.
2008 to Present - J'adore by Dior
I was wearing scent at our wedding and still wear it today. I'm sure that someday this scent will remind me of my newlywed adventures.
I wonder what my next scent will be?
What scent are you currently wearing? What scents have you worn over the years? What scents remind you of a particular time in your life?
