LouLou perfume reminds me of being pregnant, everyone wore it and I used to gag.
Body Shop fuzzy peach reminds me of my mum.
Coconut moisturiser reminds me of holidays in Portugal.
Comfort fabric softener reminds me of my ex mil, her washing was always hanging in the hall
The smell of new carpet reminds me of when I moved into this house.
Adidas deodorant was always I'm my house when my boys were teenagers
I could go on and on :)

Cool waters for women reminds me of my rebellious teenage years. I wore others but that takes me back.

Baby lotion reminds me of my Grandad, he always puts it on after having a shave.

Redbull (gags) reminds me of a bar I use to work at that sold vodka redbull fishbowls.

Sickly aftershaves (joop, jpg) also make me gag all the lads at school coating themselves in them.

Coco Mademoiselle although I wear it regularly it reminds me of Thailand.

The smell of a hairdressers salon. I grew up in one (both parents) and every time I went to a salon it would remind me of my childhood.

Smoked bacon being cooked. Reminds me of full English breakfast on childhood holidays in the caravan in Devon :)

I also always have vivid memories associated with perfumes I have been wearing at that particular time. Eg - Estée Lauder Beautiful reminds me of Christmas 2005.
