Smells like Florida......

This morning I sprayed myself with a new Vanilla body mist from The Body Shop and suddenly had a flash back to the Yankee Candle shop in the Florida Mall (was 6 years since last visit!)....cheered up my morning no end before work What smells remind you of Florida?

Oh love when that happens! I bought a scented candle that smelled like the candy shop on Main Street USA in MK and stocked up so I can re-live my memories over and over! Also Australian Gold suncream always reminds me of Florida, Seaworld in particular although I haven't a clue why LOL!

The smell of cinnamon always reminds me of Florida, esp Universal Studios as they have the Cinnebon rolls there

I keep an old bottle of Panama Jack suncream at the back of my bathroom cabinet just so that I can sniff it from time to time.

Interesting, I thought it was just me that had these occurances

1. Best mate at work, his car smells exactly the same as the hire car in Florida!

2. When I go to a shell garage that has the coffee reminds me of Hess at DTD

3. Wife put some sun lotion on the the other day where we had sunshine ! and it was typhoon lagoon

boy do I want to go back !!!!!!!!!!!

Will I ever grow out of this at the age of 43 ! probably not
