As you're reading this, I am actually away. Hubs and I are visiting my dad at his Florida home and in honor of my dear dad, I'm going to tell you about two scents that will forever remind me of him. These scents are in addition to the weird jar of waxy stuff he often used to clean the grease and motor oil off his hands after working on cars.
Speed Stick® by Mennen
Old Spice (original)
Once old enough to date boys, I secretly prayed they'd never use these two products. There's something icky about my guy smelling like Daddy. Luckily none of them did. However, I bet by now those original scents have since been updated and no longer even have that original Daddy smell. For example my two favorite childhood shampoos, Finesse and Suave, smell much different these days.
Ironically, my Mother-in-Law has this odd habit of asking me what perfume I'm wearing and actually purchases it. We've had about three of the same perfumes since 2002. I probably shouldn't admit this, but one day I had the nerve to say, "If I'm making out with my man, I really don't want him to think I smell pretty, just like his mom." Not sure who I embarrassed more, hubs or his mom. Oops.
