Scents that Evoke Memories


The smell of Gloria Vanderbilt perfume from 1982. It was a relatively new perfume back when I was graduating from law school and taking the bar examination. I wore this fragrance for a couple of years. I spent 10 days in a hotel in Orlando, Florida taking a bar review class before the 2 day exam. This perfume was so strong, it permeated that room. I stopped wearing it shortly thereafter because it reminded me of the bar exam (which I passed!)- but even after all these years, if someone wearing it walks past me and it wafts over me, I’m immediately back in the 1980s in that hotel room, stressing over that dang test!
