Springtime African smells. We had beautiful Frangipani trees in our front garden and I had a jasmine growing outside my bedroom window and remember waking up to the heady scent everyday.
My favourite scent memory is walking home from school through the bushland after tropical rain. When the deluge stopped, all the dust would have settled and the air would be filled with an overwhelming scent of vibrant fresh eucalyptus.
My best fragrant memory is of Jasmine. The small white flowers making a canopy over my deckchair on a greek island, where I am sipping ouzo: the combined effect is positively intoxicating!
Going on holiday aged 17 to Florida for the first time away from my parents for 2 weeks, Lancôme Miracle was what I wore everyday. One day, a few years back, I smelt it again and it took me back all those years to my fun holiday – it was the first time a smell had taken me back.
Chanel Chance reminds me of romantic date nights. Really special and makes me feel glamorous.
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.
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.
When I was little I was obsessed with Britney Spears and my mum walked into my room one day and I was spraying the cat with Fantasy by Britney Spears.
The confidence boost from my first spray of Creed Aventus and landing my dream job.
