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

‘My first smell memory is rice. It is a mixture of aroma, steam and sweet. And of course the smell of my home is rice and the smell of my mother. She was using the fragrance ‘Rose Water’.

The scent of rain is the smell of Britain for me. When I first arrived from a warm country like Iraq it hit me with a mixture of a warm, earthy and damp smell.

I do use the fragrance ‘Weekend’ by Burberry.’
