With great olfactory power, comes great responsibility. I'm just kidding! But with a super-powered schnoz such as mine you do wield a bit of sensory power over the masses.
I can detect fragrances a mile away. I often find myself saying "Do you smell that?" only to be answered simply with a puzzled look. Of course no one else can smell that. I despise being stuck on the train with food smells or an unpleasant perfume because even though the offender can no longer detect the subtle smell, I can.
Even though my nostrils are super-sensitive, I love being surrounded by comforting fragrances. A lot of my memories are tied to smells. A whiff of sunscreen brings me right back to my childhood at the beaches in Florida visiting family; pine needles whisk me to the holiday season; jasmine reminds me that summertime is right around the corner.
One of my longtime favorites has been the Egyptian Cotton linen spray at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I tend to buy two or three bottles at once so I'm never without. It's that good! Plus I'm terrified they'll stop making it and I'll have to ration my remaining supply. I like to spray this on my sheets as I'm making the bed, so later when you go to sleep you get layers of the scent lulling you into slumber. I also love this spray for towels to freshen mid-week before they need to be washed, and the couch for a freshening up.
The smell is soothing and not cloying at all. Floral notes of lily and jasmine combine with woody undertones all mingling to create a scent that, to me, just smells like home. A bottle will last for quite a while, a few spritzes and the scent lingers for days. I don't think you'll be able to walk around Bed, Bath and Beyond without searching for this. You'll be happy you did.
