Collection of smell memories of home and first smell memories of London-Britain by Semra Eren-Nijhar

‘As my mother was using carnation cologne my first memory of scent is the smell of carnation. It stayed with me as the scent of my home.

The first time when I went to a museum in 1985 in London a woman passed next to me with a beautiful smell. I ran after her and asked what perfume she was wearing and asked her to write it down for me. It was the perfume ‘Wings’.

‘Wings’ perfume is my first memory in Britain as a scent and since then I am using the same perfume.’
