I could cry for being able to see the name of my favorite perfume in print. It's been so long. Please can't someone replicate Zadig?
In 1966 my husband gave me some. The only wonderful reminders of that marriage are my daughters and Zadig.
They say the strongest sense memory is smell.... Tide-and-Clorox washed clothes drying in an arid attic on a rainy day; lemon oil on old wood, pencil shavings, clean baby, spring rain . . . Zadig. These are my top shelf memories.
