Journal: Scents

I finally jumped on the bandwagon that is Scentsy. And it's true. My house smells great. It's reminded me of what a strong emotional trigger smells can be.

How often has a whiff of a scent immediately thrust you into a time machine to revisit a specific place or person? I've jotted four different places and four different people below.

  • Crayola crayons, Elmer's glue and coffee
  • roses and baked goods
  • Black cherry candle and alcohol
  • vanilla and litter boxes
  • leather and cigarettes
  • shaving creme and soap
  • way too much Polo cologne
  • baby poop and peppermints
Now, your turn.

Journal: Dive into your memory. Think about a smell or combination of smells that connect you to a certain person or place. Write a scene using those smells and that memory or combine several from your list.
