52 Weeks of Personal History & Genealogy - week 34: smells

Huge Candle Sale!Certain smells bring back faded memories.

My maternal grandmother used to wear Roses Roses by AVON. As kids, whenever we would walk into the house and smell roses, we knew Mums was visiting! Even today when I smell that perfume, I can feel her presence. AVON unfortunately stopped making it a while back but ... my cousin emailed one day last year to tell me I had to run to Yankee Candles after work. They came out with "Fresh Cut Roses" and it smells just like Roses Roses by AVON!

My paternal grandmother wore Imari by AVON, which I've taken to wearing now. It's like having her with me still everyday.
