Well,I don't know how much that can be proven, but it is an interesting quote.
I was recently searching for a certain perfume called Magnolia or Eau de Val sold by L'Occitane. They no longer sell it, but once in awhile you can find it on ebay. I first found it in Paris when my daughter and I made that very special trip there a few years ago. All I have to do is smell it and I am transported there. While searching online I came across a very interesting blog for those people who love all things vintage and especially perfume. Amelia at The Vintage Perfume Vault has a blog wholly devoted to vintage scents. It is fascinating. After reading some of the posts, I began to reminisce about the first scents I remember.
Isn't it amazing that certain smells will evoke memories just as sure as if they tapped you on the shoulder?
Thank you for joining me on my little trip down memory lane!
