Perfume Memories

What a fun memory lane to go down …just seeing the old bottles of past perfumes brings back so many memories…I so badly want to smell these again!

First perfume memory …my mom wore L’effleur and I thought this was the most beautiful and sophisticated scent

Junior high…Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth. That bottle!!! The absolute coolest scent and look (it’s now only $150 on eBay!)

Exclamation came out the year I turned 13…what great artistry! Here’s a description (FYI I just saw this in the store recently)

High school – THE BEST EVER!!! Mango perfume oil. I always go into a Body Shop when I see one in hopes of smelling this tart, fruity scent. (Haven’t seen it in years) I can almost conjure up the smell. My high school was the preppiest, most J.crew, body shop, Gap-est school …(when j.crew and gap were cool) and this is my scratch and sniff scent of high school (and I got all my gap and jcrew at thrift stores)

Body shop has a mango spray! I need to try this

College…dream from Gap…anything from Gap…they had a scent called grass, do you remember that? It smelled exactly like a freshly mowed lawn. The Heaven scent was pretty too.

Also college…but specifically the summer I worked at Camp Chetek, it was alllllll about the Bath and Body Works lotions and body sprays. Plumeria was so sophisticated …

Country Apple!!! Clean and fruity

Sun ripened raspberry!! Sweet but not too sweet

Honeymoon!! Victoria’s Secret, strawberries and Champagne…such a sweet smell and memories…

First year of marriage …we had come home to the states then Canada to get married and I remember shopping at Tommy Hilfiger …I bought some preppy shirts to wear to school (I taught kindergarten) and this clean and sporty perfume.

Currently I like Surf from American Eagle. Here’s the description for the men’s version of surf:

Sounds about right. It does feel beachy.

Currently wearing; pink palm body spray by Good Chemistry. It’s a happy and fresh scent

I’d love to hear your perfume memories, and do any of these ring a bell. This was such a fun walk down memory lane!
