scent of a woman

August 29, 2018

I put a shirt on this morning, freshly dry cleaned, and thought immediately of my grandmother. There must be something in the dry cleaning chemicals that remind me of her. Crisp white shirts were her uniform, and I’m sure she had her wardrobe dry cleaned regularly. The smell of hot dogs remind me of her, she loved hot dogs, and so does First by Van Cleef & Arpels. That was her signature scent, grand and decadent. Dry cleaning chemicals, hot dogs and Van Cleef & Arpels –– what a combination. It speaks volumes.
