#BEDM Day 31: A Vivid Memory
A vivid memory
Wow. Last blog of #BEDM. Do we, like, sign each others’ shirts, or books, or something?
Addiction, by Fabergé. That is my vivid memory. Actually, it’s more of a memory of a memory. I don’t remember what it smells like any more, but I remember remembering what it smelled like. A lot of my memories are like that, second-hand. But anyway, yes, Addiction, the body-spray version of it. They don’t make it any more, which is a great pity. Many, many, many years ago, the first boy I did anything with was wearing this and God damn he smelled good, and God damn was he cute. I remember, a few days later, catching a smell of it on the clothes I had been wearing that night and my knees nearly coming unhinged. A few months after that I smelled it again somewhere else, randomly, and nearly spontaneously came.
You’ve got to love sense memory. I have no idea even vaguely what it smells like any more. But I’m confident that, well over a decade later, if that smell should happen to waft across my nose again I would instantly be transported back…
