Continuing along the theme of McMahon’s “all-time favourites“, I find that certain songs or perfumes remind you of something from the past. So what songs (and more for female Sploofus members), perfumes, recall memories of the past? For me, the song "I'm Going To Make You A Star” by David Essex recalls memories of when I first came to London, and my first “grown up” perfume was “Imprévu”. I used this perfume when going to an interview for a place at Art College. (I was offered a place in art school but did take it up, which is my “all-time” regret!).

My first perfume was Sweet Honesty by Avon. I wore it in high school...for some reason it reminds me of Rocky Mountain High by John Denver...don't know why though

My first perfume was by Avon as well! Topaz was the name of mine. Sadly I can't wear perfume at all now, migraines and asthma knock it off the list for me. I loved Estee Lauder's Beautiful when I could still wear it.

When I first met my wife, she wore "White Shoulders." Not sure if they still make it.

When I was wee, the local AM station read "Letters to Santa" from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The intro song was "Santa's Coming in a Whirleybird" by Gene Autry. I rarely hear that now, but when I do, I go back to sitting in front of the radio waiting to hear my letter.

And speaking of Christmas and scents, whenever I smell orange peels (or tangerine) and cowboy-gun caps, it's Christmas morning all over again.

I heard once you should buy a perfume on vacation and that it would remind you of the place.

Shalimar reminds me of the summer of 1969; my roomie use to wear that.

I wear White Diamonds, JOY, and heavy duty Opium, Chanel (#5-only)

Don't associate music with scents, but places.

Talking about scents I just quit selling avon after 30 years, and Vickie saying she wore sweet honesty brought back a dumb thing I done with a bottle of that back when we sold the collectable bottles I had bought my daughter one of sweet honesty and set it in her window well the sun came in that window most of he day so I figured it might actually get hot and explode so I took the bottle and poured out the cologne in the bathroom basin and run some water in well needless to say my whole house smelled like sweet honesty for better than a week even with all the water we run through there. So needless to say I still can't stand the smell of sweet honesty to this day. +0( charlotte

Scent and music....Canoe on all the men in our "complex" and "Pack up your sorrows" sung by Mimi and Richard Farina with heavy dulcimer....either one can bring me back to 1965! Canoe is still made, but since it isn't popular it hasn't lost that connection for me.
Or Emeraude by Coty and Silouettes by the Rays brings back the sock hops of the late 1950s, and slow dancing.

Charlotte, My mom still sells Avon and has for the past 40 years, back to when I got married. My wife is allergic to most of Avon's men's scents, but Mom kept giving me that stuff every birthday and Christmas. So I grew a beard and have kept it ever since. At least now she give's my wife Avon jewelry instead.
