#listifylife – Scents That Conjure Up Memories

List of scents, below in text

Today’s Listify Life theme is scents that conjure up memories. They’re hard to describe in words!

LOVE’S BABY SOFT – The perfume my dad gave me for Christmas when I was too young to wear perfume.

HAIRSPRAY – Some hairsprays remind me of the smell of sizzling hairspray being seared by a curling iron. Those bangs tho!

LIVER & ONIONS – Takes me back to gagging my way through washing the pan my stepfather fried his liver and onions in.

What about you? What scents take you back?

    One of the best presents my husband gave me was a perfume spray bottle filled with Fuel Oil #2. My Dad had recently passed away and he spent his entire working life as an heating oil burner service man. He came home from work every day smelling of the oil he worked in. Whenever I start to miss that wonderful man I spray a little oil on a tissue, close my eyes, inhale the smell, and remember him coming home. Happy memories.

    Homemade spaghetti sauce cooking on the stove. That means yummy food for dinner!
