Childhood memory: being half asleep snuggled warmly in my bed.
My mother coming into my room to check on me after being out for the evening with my father.
She gently brushes the hair off my forehead as she leans down to kiss me.
I hear her plastic bangle bracelets click together as she moves and I get a hint of her Chanel No. 5 as I drifted off to sleep.

The scent of Chanel No. 5 instantly makes me six years old again.


  1. Very sweet. My Ma used to wear Chanel No. 5, too.

  2. Oh...me toooooo. When my mom left earth (I used to say died) she had an old, unopened bottle of Chanel No. 5, which my sister held onto for a long time, and then gave it to me. I may pass it back to her when we visit Virginia next.

  3. Wow! We really did grow up in parallel universes.
