If I close my eyes I can smell her as if she was sitting right next to me. I do that on long hard days when I need to be reminded, comforted and secure.
Her scent was wonderful and I swear she is the only one that could pull it off. Charlie Perfume is a stronger scent but when she wore it I just wanted to snuggle with her. My gram wore Charlie Perfume all the time. That was her scent and she loved it. She said “it smells good and it’s affordable”.
When I am out and about and I smell that smell, I stand in the store and look all around as if my gram will magically appear. I look for what seems like eternity before I realize it is another senior that is wearing it.
Charlie has a perfume called Charlie White and it’s a wonderful gently scent. That is now and has been for some time my perfume of choice. When I put it on in the morning, I am reminded of the “primping” that my gram did. A little perfume and she always believed that you should never leave the house without your lips on meaning your lipstick. She said even if you put nothing else on, you should put your lips on and a little perfume.
I think I will go in the bedroom and put just a little Charlie on in memory of my gram.
Much peace and keep open!
