Nicola

I had forgotten the smell of Aramis that my dad used to wear when I was younger – smelling it again really took my back.

Sonia Sanson Duban

An explosion of spices (cardamon, cloves, cinnamon) in the curries that were on the stove when I walked through the front door after school.

Alenja Winterfeld

Fresh air, grass, blossoms – summers in Germany visiting family!

Philippine Berthemy

I remember going to my grand-parents’ bathroom, showering myself with my Grandpa’s L’Habit Rouge de Guerlain, and showing off to the whole family.

Jack Randall

The scent of walking into my late father’s art studio. The scent was a powerful: woody incense and sweet oil. I have launched a candle brand with my fragrance memory as the candle scent.

Connor Cooper

Whenever I head back to my hometown, the distinctive seaside smell always reminds me I’m home.

Emma James

My most vibrant scent memory is that of my Grandmother, I remember the warm heady and enveloping smell of her doused in YSL Opium! This classy smell went perfectly with her jewellery and peep toe heels.

James White

Growing up as a kid accompanying my dad in the car to get petrol and sticking my nose out of the window whilst he filled up the tank.

Laurel Violet Kemp

My wife proposed to me in our garden filled with sweet peas. It was such a beautiful moment. Before I “came out” as gay to my family we would send each other bouquets of flowers as a secret message to show how much we loved each other. Flowers remind me of love and strength.
