The power of Scent

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. ~ Zen~
I close my eyes and I hear my mother’s voice together with my dad’s and brother’s. We are by the meadow looking out into the deep blue ocean. Soft breeze touches my nape and I am compelled to smile, a smile that later turns into laughter as my dad holds me up into the air making me feel like flying. Weeeeee I toss my hands at the blue sky and touch cool air which I breathe in as I look down at my mom holding a bouquet of roses given by dad earlier in the day and at my brother eating apples sweet.
Aaahhh life is great, life is beautiful my small heart and mind tell me and I say “dad put me down now” and then I run barefooted on the soft ground, green wet with dew grasses cradle my weight as I softly, gently lay down and watch the clouds up in the sky giggling, mumbling, laughing snuggling close to mom on the ground. “Mommy!” I hear a sweet sounding boy’s voice and I open my eyes….It is my little boy waking me up from a daydream of my childhood holding a glade air freshener which he has been spraying all over the house all day. I smile at him and say “What is it little one?” he caresses my hand and says “I love you mommy, you are the best”, hands me a rose he picked from our garden and runs with the glade air freshener spray on his little fingers.
Aaahhh life is beautiful with memories preserved by the power of scent which is magnificently captured and stored in our brains by no less than for me the best ever when it comes to long-lasting fragrance… new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist - Glade Expressions Air Fresheners

  1. Isn't it amazing when a certain smell brought us back to our home and memory?

  2. Thoughts so wonderfully expressed Zen, i too daydream about childhood a lot, those times spent outdoors with family, sometimes just for play, other times combining play and planting/harvesting

    1. PS...... Thanks again Zen for sharing your beautiful words to TJOSL

  3. I am so sensitive to smell I don't usually use fragrances in the house.

  4. "Life is sweet with love that lingers through the years. Spray and display the love around your house and stay happy." -what more can i say?

  5. It's amazing how smells and certain songs might bring back past memories.
