Spring Smells

When I was living in Switzerland a few years ago, I got this perfume, Insolence by Guerlain, just after spring had sprung.  I chose it because it reminded me of some Sanrio perfume I had as a little girl with Little Twin Stars on the front of the tiny little bottle.  I have no idea where I got that Little Twin Stars perfume, but I loved it and when I smelled Insolence it immediately took me back to a really delightful childhood state of mind.  I was sold on Insolence immediately and I adored wearing it with skirts and summery tops and feeling flowery and fresh.  I wore it on many hikes through the gorgeous Jura Mountain range with the sun shining on my face and birdsong all around.  Since that time in Switzerland, when I wear it, I feel childlike, flowery, sunny and fresh and I can almost hear the birdsong.  All at once!  It has been great to wear on dreary grey days in the Northwest and today I'm wearing it on a lovely, sunny, birdsong filled day in Portland.  It's simultaneously taking me back to joyful childhood days, sunny days in Switzerland and brightening this perfect day in Portland.  Yum.
