I have some terrifying (literally cause my heart to skip beats) smells.

I think my favorite smell in the world is the smell of my newborn children, freshly bathed. In those moments, I felt I must be the luckiest woman in the world.

So many goofy things come to mind...being a teenager in the 60' dates wore English Leather...we wore Youth Dew by Estee Lauder. My grandfather also wore Old Spice and my grandmother's yard smelled of lantana...pungent. The smell of turkey cooking is a familiar Thanksgiving smell...patchouli reminds me of college! Bourbon reminds me of college! To this day the smell of pine and fresh cold rain instantly transports me in my mind to favorite place in the world. Margaritas or the smell of tequila reminds me of Puerta Vallarta. There is a smell there of onions, corn tortillas, and garlic in the homes of the village people that is so reminescent of Mexico. The salty ocean air is Padre Island or Port Aransas...the coast of Texas. I am very olfactorally sensitive. I can identify perfume on someone with one whiff. Guess I am a person who couldn't bear to lose the sense of smell. Love and need fragrance and smells !
