Monday Memory Madness
It's Monday so I can't forget to play Monday Memory Madness along with Dani over at Dani's Daily Drop. Today Dani asks if there is a particular scent that triggers a certain memory or an unpleasant scent that you may actually enjoy. It took me a while, but this memory came to my mind.
Any of you out there know the distinct scent from Chaps cologne for men? My Dad loved to use this cologne daily. All of us in the family would joke about how the scent was overpowering and not so pleasing. He would smile with his usual grin and assure us that there are those who appreciate a Chaps man.
My dear Dad passed away almost nine years ago. I would love to smell that Chaps cologne again. It would bring me back so quickly to those fond memories of Dad bragging about his Chaps. I think I would stop in my tracks if that scent came into the room. Another day wishing that I could give my Dad a hug :)
