The smell of Anais Anais will always remind me of Christmas, as it was one of my first fragrances that I was given at this time & absolutely loved!

My Mum and Grandma are both smokers and both use Channel no.5 perfume. I associate the combined smell of cigarette smoke and channel 5 with my childhood. Hugs from my mother or grandmother before an evening out. Or staying at grandparents, being tucked into bed by grandma and hearing the deep men’s voices lull me to sleep.

For Christmas one year, my younger brother wanted buy me a new fragrance. He went in and chose one he thought smelt of me. He stayed a while in the shop until he found the right one. 6 months before, my boyfriend bought me the same scent!

The warm, musky, powdery smell of my nanny’s neck took me to a safe comforting place when I was little. She always boasted that when she wore it people always asked her what she was wearing? Which made her feel fabulous! And she was! It was the gorgeous “Oscar” by Oscar De La Renta.

When you are walking home in the winter and smell the wood burning from someone´s chimney, you remember the cosy feel of an open wood fire and how it made you feel…….cosy, safe and warm.

My #ScentMemory is Dolce and Gabanna The Only One EDP, as it reminds me of the winter time with all the festive decorations around the city and gives me a warm, comforting, and sophisticated feel.

I remember when I was younger, my Dad used to work away from home for weeks. On his arrival home, my brother and I would wait for him boy the front door. As he walked in, the scent of the original Ralph Lauren Polo would brush against my cheeks.

My “Madeline of Proust” is the garden of my great grandmother – a real pleasure for the senses. Lilac dropping in the stream making the air fresh while playing in the water. Playing in the sheets drying under the sun. Laying on the fresh grass feeling comfortable and the sun. Rich, refreshing, comfortable, cocooning feelings that I cherish.

A Goodnight Kiss from Roja Dove takes me back to age 4, 5 to when we lived on a farm. There were two houses and my mother’s friend lived in the other. They used a similar fragrance, powdery and flowery. It’s so beautiful and I love to catch that scent.
