I used to sneak little sprays or dabs of my mom's stuff a lot, my dad was not into scents much so he didn't have near the nice selection she had. I remember her dresser well. it held bottles of pretty smelling fluids, L'Air Du Temps, Chanel No 5, Chanel No 22, Chanel No 19, Nina Ricci, Shalimar, Y, (Y came a little later than my early childhood and became one of her favorites) Chantilly and Jungle Gardenia, ah it was a delight for sure. My Grandma's also held some nice little scents as well I only remember Tabu and Shalimar though My only solid memory of my Great Grandma was that she always smelled of either Lilacs, Lavender or violets and she always smelled so nice - anyway, enough history. My first scent that was bought FOR me was Tigress, then Woodhue, then some musk of some kind I can't remember and a grass oil and some lovely Cherry Blossom oil my dad picked up for me somewhere and then at 16 came the Eau Sauvage and 4711 from one of my Great Aunts and I have been "into" guys and unisex ever since. I do have a few "women's" but my collection leans heavily towards the "men's" scents. My aunt who gave me the Eau Sauvage and the 4711 is the person who put it into my head to wear what you like NOT who they market it to she didn't believe scents had gender.
