Knowing by Estée Lauder is possibly the first perfume I ever encountered. It reminds me of my childhood; it reminds me of my Grandma, who always used to wear it, my mum as she prepared for a night out (who has since swapped to Chanel!) and of a 6 year old me tottering around in high heels and jewellery – and a splash of Knowing of course – pretending to be a grown up. Unfortunately now I am grown up I prefer something a bit more fresh, but it’s still a comforting smell which reminds me of 2 very important women in my life.
