The Smell of the Perfume
« on: June 08, 2019, 10:39:08 AM »
The smell of my dad's perfume always reminds me of him. I don't know whether I like or hate that feeling because he is not with us any longer. What are the things that remind you of your parents? How do you feel when that thing reminds you of them?

Bakewell tart my Mam loved them, I had a slice last week and thought of her and smiled.  Saw them today in a coffee shop and thought of her.  X

Smells or scents can bring back memories for me sometimes too. My daughter had a favorite perfume she loved to wear all through her high school days. I was in a department store the other day and went by the perfumes, someone had just sprayed a tested on that very scent and it immediately made me think of her and brought back so many memories.

From perfumes to an image on a shirt, from songs to a certain food; our memories are linked to so many things. Some days my heart feels heavy because I miss those old, happy days so much. I guess I'm lucky that I can still call my parents or come over to check on them.

It is interesting how our human mind can associate smells, sounds or tastes with our past experience. There are some particular songs that remind me of my parents. Though I canít recall if there were occasions when some particular smells recalled my memories of them.

The smell of baking bread reminds me of home and my mom. She loves to make homemade breads. She doesn't do it as much as she used to, but she still bakes bread occasionally. Her pumpkin bread is my favorite!
