This is like a L2 Writers Hall of Fame type of piece.

Isn't it strange we sometimes miss the scent of someome so much more passionately than himself/herself? And sometimes we remember it so much more vividly?

How come you're so good at encouraging and invigorating me, J?
You make me wanna be a better L2 writer, really. Writing English posts has become a part of my daily routines, thanks to you.

Do you really think so? That's exactly how I feel toward scent of someone. Yes, scent of memories always surpasses the memories themselves. It's not bad to cherish such a wistful sense of loss, isn't it?

Scent of memories

It is a legitimate argument that women feel awkward, uneasy, or even being "naked", if they don't put on makeup. It totally makes sense, but it feels slightly different to me. Putting on makeup has long been my default setting with rationale that, no offence, it is rather disrespectful of adult female to go out barefaced. (Does anyone here agree?) What makes me feel so awkward, uneasy, and being "naked" is to forget to put on fragrance. I might be able to attribute my strong bent for fragrancy to my mother who was, is, and will be a fanatic Chanel adorer. When I was a child, she used to wear CHANEL No.5 all the time. I can vividly recall that there was always a bottle of No. 5 on her dresser, which turned out to be "early education" to her daughter, and was very nice.

The very first fragrance that I routinely started wearing was CHANEL No. 19 that I purchased when I visited the U.S for a three week homestay in the outskirts of California. Thanks to my mother's tutelage, I had no doubt going for something CHANEL as my debut item. Deep down, however, I was feeling that it was not MY choice. Next time I went to the U.S. a year after, I obtained Cacharel "Anais Anias" whose bottle was adorable enough to make me fall into "love at first sight" literally, and it actually paid off well to the extent as my favorite of five years. The bottle is too pretty to be disposed of soon after use, isn't it?

Then I started picking up whatever fragrance that stimulated my curiosity, such as LANCOME "Oui!", "Miracle", GUCCI "Rush", Jennifer Lopez "Still", and the like. My recent favorite is absolutely LANVIN "Eclatd Arpege". I quickly got obsessed with its graceful, elegant, yet sexy scent when a salesclerk at department store handed me a small piece of tester. When put, it soon becomes my own redolence as if I were gently wrapped with a transparent shield of decent aroma invisible and invincible against others. "Eclat D'arpege Perfume by Lanvin, A soft floral fragrance, eclat d'arpege by the design house of lanvin was created in 2003. A sophisticated fruity scent is a blend of sicilian lemon leaves, lilac green, wisteria flowers, green tea flowers, peach flowers, red peony,white cedar of lebanon, musk, and amber."

Unforgettable aroma for me is definitely BVLGARI "Pour Homme", (sounds cheesy, huh?), that's what the guy who mercilessly broke my heart wore all the time, and later on, made me develop a high-performing "detector" for that fragrance. (How pathetic I was!) Still, whenever I sense "Pour Homme" in town, from a stranger passing by, or whatever occasions, I remember the time when I was desperately craving for him, and embrace those sweet memories as if I couldn't stop looking at good old photos that I happened to find. It is widely known that olfactory perception is deeply associated with human memory, and I'm a strong supporter of it. Do you ever have any unforgettable scent for life? I'm sure you do.
