Name at least 3 scents that trigger a good or bad memory.
When my husband and I first fell in love the orange blossoms were in full bloom in Arizona and the desert air was saturated with the heavy perfume of the citrus trees. It has to be the smell of heaven!
If you’ve never smelled citrus blossoms, imagine being wrapped in a silk blanket, still warm from the dryer while sipping the freshest, coolest, sweetest orange juice you’ve ever tasted. Now soak that in a heavy dose of young love and you will know why that is my most favorite scent in the whole world.
The second scent that comes to mind is cigarette smoke. Other people say they hate it but, to me, it is the scent of home. My parent divorced when I was quite young but, before that, we had a beautiful big farm house. My older sister hadn’t left for college yet. I spent my days playing Wonder Woman in my Underoos in the back yard. Life was good and safe and pure and it smelled like my dad’s cheap cigarettes and I loved that. I still do!
The third is lavender baby lotion. It was the scent of my sweet, beautiful newborn baby girl’s soft skin and I spent countless hours holding her, marveling at her perfectly formed little face and breathing in that scent.
