The smells of Childhood: Chapter 2
Wednesday, February 10, 2010

After my last post I felt compelled to share this one, too ... another heartfelt letter, this one from Gena in Georgia:

"Thank you for sending the letter about the Old Spice. Yeah, that brings back memories.

My special scented memory is of "Evening in Paris" in the little oval cobalt blue bottle.

I was 10 years old--a long, long time ago. I bought the gift set for my beloved grandmother. It contained the parfum (not perfume) bottle, larger cobalt bottle of talc (whatever that is), and a round plastic bowl of scented powder with a pink puff - less than $5.00. It was a very long time ago.

Yet, the same/different everlasting scent.

Grandma didn't wear too much perfume, although she loved the powder.
I still have the cobalt bottles of parfum and talc.

I plan to dig them out of the keepsake drawer soon. Just a whiff and I’m there again.
