Day 11 – Three favorite scents
- Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief – I don’t care what form it comes in. Candles. Lotion. Body spray. The combination of spearmint and eucalyptus is so soothing to me. When I have a really bad day, I just hide my face in it and it makes me feel just a bit better. The tension literally melts away, especially from my shoulders for some reason. I hold a lot of tension there.
- New York City – This one might sound weird. NYC is one of my favorite places in the world, with it’s theater and literature and culture. If you want to learn about anything, you can find it in New York. The city just has a smell. It’s a combination of wet concrete and garbage and a mixture of food scents wafting from various restaurants along the street. Whenever I smell it, I know that I am in my home away from home.
- Coconut scented sunblock mixed with chlorine – Nothing says summer and childhood like the combination of these two scents. How many days did I spend at my aunt and uncle’s house swimming in their pool? How many days did I spend at friend’s houses swimming? So many! That scent brings back lots of happy, fun memories and always promises a fun time.
