Scent Memory

This evening I had a powerful sudden scent memory. I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve had a scent memory, and I definitely don’t remember ever having one be such an abrupt punch in the olfactory cortex.

It was from a hair care product I rarely use… but I happened to use some tonight. As my hand covered with this particular oil flew past my face, the scent wafted to my nose and there was a sudden picture of him in my mind. I looked up at the mirror and it took me a moment to process what had just jumped into my head.

The only thing I’m unsure about is whose scent was it really? It took me back to a particular time in my life, but I am not sure if it was a scent that came from me… or him.
