My lasting memory of a fragrance was in 1965 my now husband bought me Shocking by Schiaparelli. A shocking pink box it was the most amazing smell but out of my price range then. I have tried unsuccessfully over the years to find it, or similar but to no avail. I did treat myself to Joy once by Jean Patou, glorious, I still have the empty box. My son Michael always bought me Paris by YSL but sadly he died 13 years ago and I cherish the last bottle he gave me. So some sad memories, but also lovely memories of perfume fragrances.
