Bring on the Enlightenment

Hello all!

This will be a quick post about something that I got recently… New perfume! If you haven’t heard about the link between scent and memory, you can check out some spiffy science here. Several years ago I went to Mexico with my family and I decided to bring this perfume that had been a gift and I hadn’t worn yet. I wore it throughout my time in Mexico, but switched back to my usual perfume when I got home. A couple months later I tried wearing the Mexico perfume again, and I was overwhelmed by all these memories and thoughts about our trip to Mexico! And that is how it has been, every time I smell that perfume I think of Mexico.

So I decided that I wanted to try and replicate that with our European trip. Obviously it may or may not work; this trip will be much longer and we’ll be visiting more places. My dream would be that whenever I smelled this perfume, I would think of our adventure together. That’s the plan at least!

My new perfume, Enlighten.

The perfume is called, “Enlighten” so if I’m feeling whimsical I’d say I’m hopeful that wearing this will be a self-fulfilling prophecy kind of thing. Also, the perfume is locally made in Winnipeg at La Parfumerie from natural materials, which is also pretty awesome.

    That’s such a great idea! I’ve been looking for an excuse to check out La Parfumerie. I will most definitely do the same thing for my trip next year.

    • Thanks! Yes, definitely check it out! It was very cool, I would love to go in there one day and get a perfume made from scratch. See you in Europe! 😉
