Smelling Memories

About a week ago I ran out of the perfume I've been wearing for a bit now, Vera Wang's Lovestruck... I usually change smells every time they run out just to keep it interesting but there's a few I keep around because I love them and they bring back wonderful memories. Like the other morning I was running around getting my things together and just slapped on the first perfume I could find. In my rush to get to work on time and not park in a garage that cost an arm and a leg I didn't really take the smell in. But for some reason even with being late and my hair looking a hot mess I was in a good mood. When I finally sat down at my desk and took a deep breath and a wave of memories came back. I was wearing Aguolina's Pink Sugar the same perfume I got right before my boyfriend and I started dating. All these memories came rushing back, our first date at Piccolo Forno, our second date when we saw 50/50 and I cried, the first hand hold and our first kiss. I couldn't help but smile and think of how lucky I am that I get to have him. Sorry! Enough of the cheesy stuff! Anyway my point is that it's an amazing way to start your day. A smell can trigger so many memories and it amazes me every time. So today I'm going to share my favorite smells and what or who they remind me of. Also I suggest you check them out if you haven't already. You can never own too much perfume BUT you can have too much on (we've all made that mistake) so spritz lightly ladies!
