Memories of vanilla and cigarettes
The small perfume sample was now already of the longer around in my apartment... carelessly thrown into a small bowl, where also still other Pröbchen of their use wait.
Today I had times desire for something new... and somehow my choice fell on this fragrance.
No description on the box - only a photo of the bottle, which made me suspect that it could be a warm fragrance.
So - tore open the package, pressed the fragrance patch to the skin, impatiently immediately sniffed it.
First I could not quite assign the fragrance: Flowers? Vanilla? Sweet, yes. But a real rhyme I could not make myself on it and was a little disappointed.
When I sniffed again after a few minutes, I was suddenly overcome by a memory...
Vanilla and cigarettes
That was what I smelled, even though I realized that tobacco notes were rarely found in women's perfume and I must be mistaken.
And suddenly the image of a memory came to me - my "big brother" some 20 years ago and the game nights we had together in his first apartment.
He was (and is) a smoker and both he and his then-flame both wore perfumes that smelled like vanilla.
In the small apartment, the smells mixed quickly, creating this very unique melange of vanilla and tobacco.
It's a good memory, I think.
A memory of a time when my twenties and all the exciting things that were yet to come were still far ahead of me.
I also didn't know then how far apart we would later drift.
I can't not smell it.
I read the scent pyramid with amazement - no tobacco, but citrus notes and moss.
I smell a very sweet, warm scent.... and somewhere in the background the cigarettes.
I don't think this scent is original, more like pleasing. And sometimes that's exactly what you want.
Of course I'm toying with the idea of buying it, if only for the memory.
