or perhaps that should be fragrance, smells always gives the wrong impression don't you think?
Anyway - it's funny how certain fragrances bring back memories or how you can find unexpected smells in the most strange places.
Let me explain - I was classifying a few books yesterday (yes, I am a librarian!) and I picked up this book that had a rather plastic cover (for your information it was Paediatric Radiology by Karl Johnson) and I must have brought it close enough to my face to get a whiff of this plastic.
I paused and began to wonder what it reminded me of, it didn't take long before I realised that it smelt of those rubber rings that you can buy at those little shops next to the beach - it was exactly that smell and really made me think of summer holidays with the family.
It really can be quite surprising when you get a familiar smell from something that shouldn't actually smell like that, in fact, when I used to do my evening job and had to catalogue the re-recorded programmes on DVD - the DVD boxes used to smell exactly like hot water bottles!!
P.S. this is another emailed post test and I hope it works this time.
