perfume

Today, instead of cleaning my house in preparation for weekend guests from Seattle and the Best Oscar Party not hosted by Vanity Fair or the Kodak Theatre, I am scanning in pictures from college. After handling these old photos for about an hour, I realized that my hands smell kind of sweet, and floral. And then it hit me: Elizabeth Arden's Sunflowers perfume.

Photos can remind you of your past; smells can really take you there.

I wonder if my diary from jr. high still smells like Love's Baby Soft?

Holy crap, I'd totally forgotten about Sunflowers. I wore that for years. Of course it didn't smell at all like sunflowers, did it?

That perfume was such a big deal to me because all the other girls wore, like, cheap-o stuff like Malibu Musk. I had to save my allowance to buy it at NoRdStoM ooooo. Then I graduated to Happy as did many others. Now I'm kind of searching.

Anyway, thanks for the trip down memory lane!
