This morning I dabbed on some perfume that I normally do not wear. I bought this perfume, Spring Rain, when I was a teenager, and I wore it into my early twenties. I stopped wearing it when I got a different perfume, but I still kept it. I didn't wear this perfume on a daily basis; usually just on Sundays.
Today I have been thinking of~
the church my family attended during that time period
the exact pew my family and I sat in (yes, it was the same pew every Sunday!)
playing flute with another lady for the congregational songs
people I haven't thought of in a very long time
my first job as a church secretary
Isn't it interesting how something like perfume can evoke such memories? All morning long, my thoughts have been turning towards that time period in my life. Little snippets of memories have been popping up here and there as I go about my day.
I read once in a book that when you go on vacation, buy a new perfume, and wear it every day of your vacation. When you get home, the author said, do not wear the perfume. Instead, save it for occasions when you wish to remember your vacation. At the time I read that, I thought it was interesting, and wondered if it would work that way. I think it is safe to assume that it would work!
What are some of your favorite scents (perfume, candles, food, etc.)?
