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

‘On my first day of school when I was 7 years old my dad came home to take me to school (my parents were divorced). Soon as I came out of the house I smelt the crispy, fresh air of the autumn day. And this is my first memory of smell.

My home smell is my mother’s perfume which was ‘Shalimar’ by Guerlain.

I first came to Britain as a teenager and stayed with a family in Essex, the natural smell of green and countryside is the first smell of Britain for me.

I do use ‘Ambre Nuit’ by Dior
