As I was dusting my bottles of perfume, I began thinking about how long I have had some of them and when I started wearing them . What I like about wearing perfume apart from the scent, is how it can evoke memories, good memories...
I thought that I would share with you what my perfumes/eau de toilettes remind me of.
31 Rue Gambon - Chanel: Monaco, where we celebrated our first wedding anniversary (My FAVOURITE scent!)
Eau du Soir - Sisley: A gift from my parents (another favourite)
Coco Mademoiselle - Chanel: Alan and I when we first met (One of Alan's favourites)
April Violets by Yardley: My Belgian Grandmother Gabrielle
Jack Wills for Women: A day out to Salcombe, Devon with Alan
Dior Addict Eau Fraiche: Similar to a perfume my Aunt Suzy used to wear
Angel Innocent by Thierry Muggler: When I was expecting Miss P
Un Jardin sur le Nil - Hermes: France (What I have been wearing over the past couple of weeks, a wonderful scent to wear in Spring)
Pomegranate Noir -Jo Malone: Alan, I bought it for him and occasionally wear it
Blue Agava & Cacao - Jo Malone: A weekend break in London with Alan
Chevrefeuille - Yves Rocher: The first eau de toilette I ever bought myself at the age of 12
Amber & Lavender Body Crème - Jo Malone: A weekend break in London, I preferred to have that scent as a cream rather than an eau de toilette.
Patchouli Antique - Les Nereides: I first discovered this scent when living in Cannes, France when I was 13.
Ambre - L'Occitane: My sister, who also wears it
Caribbean Vanilla - Perlier: Bought on honeymoon in Sardinia
Boudoir -Vivienne Westwood: No particular memory, I like the bottle
Well... I couldn't leave out Alan's scents.. Where as I wear eau de toilette every day, Alan just wears it from time to time.
Rocabar - Hermes: It reminds him of a weekend we spent in London where I bought it for him. (My favourite!)
Promegranate Noir - Jo Malone: Same as above
West Indian Lime - Crabtree ans Evelyn: No specific memories
What is your favourite scent and does it evoke any memories?
