It is nice how peppermint reminds you of someone from the past. I think I associate people with foods I rarely eat except when they were present.
Love the memories...my grandma would give us 2 pink peppermints for church :)
what a sweet memory...nostalgic scent indeed!
How nice to have that memory from such a scent
Smells are so good for evoking memories - peppermint reminds me of my grandfather. Your poem did the same for me this morning - thank you.
This is wonderfully redolent!❤️
It's true isn't it? My grandmother, who lived in Florida, always wore orange blossom perfume...the kind you could get a the gift shop which we always stopped at as we crossed the state line, driving to visit her each summer. To this day, when I peel an orange, I think of her because of that scent! :)
It must've been a loving grandma who kept the mints in her purse. What a nice memory.
Oh, this one got me. Yesterday, I was going through some of my mom's purses and she used to carry cloves to sweeten her breath. I just had to stand there and breath that heady scent before getting the purses ready to donate. Sigh.
I love the memories of that scent of peppermints ~
Thank you everyone :)
