The smell of Anais Anais will always remind me of Christmas, as it was one of my first fragrances that I was given at this time & absolutely loved!
My Mum and Grandma are both smokers and both use Channel no.5 perfume. I associate the combined smell of cigarette smoke and channel 5 with my childhood. Hugs from my mother or grandmother before an evening out. Or staying at grandparents, being tucked into bed by grandma and hearing the deep men’s voices lull me to sleep.
For Christmas one year, my younger brother wanted buy me a new fragrance. He went in and chose one he thought smelt of me. He stayed a while in the shop until he found the right one. 6 months before, my boyfriend bought me the same scent!
The warm, musky, powdery smell of my nanny’s neck took me to a safe comforting place when I was little. She always boasted that when she wore it people always asked her what she was wearing? Which made her feel fabulous! And she was! It was the gorgeous “Oscar” by Oscar De La Renta.
When you are walking home in the winter and smell the wood burning from someone´s chimney, you remember the cosy feel of an open wood fire and how it made you feel…….cosy, safe and warm.
My #ScentMemory is Dolce and Gabanna The Only One EDP, as it reminds me of the winter time with all the festive decorations around the city and gives me a warm, comforting, and sophisticated feel.
