What I Did On My Holidays

Eau de Parfum

What I Did On My Holidays is the story of a day at the seaside, but this time it’s summer holidays in Scarborough or Brighton or St Anne’s, somewhere with an amusement arcade, mint rock shop and a candy floss stand. Suntan lotion and rock pools, in and out of the sea all day until the wind gets too strong, the waves are too high and you put your shorts and T-shirt back on, over your slightly damp cooling skin, and head for the café. Lavender, melon and coconut lotion, seaweed and fresh sea air, a waft of peppermint as you pass the rock shop. There’s candy floss - as you walk through the funfair - and it all settles down to nice vanilla ice cream.

This is the only fragrance that I have ever purchased a sample of that when I first smelled it, it made me literally giggle. Wtf?! How can a fragrance actually do that?? This fragrance reminds me of a holiday as a whole. When I smell it, I almost get flashbacks of being teens, early 20s, not a care in the world, warm summer days, eating mint ice cream on a whim, lying out by the pool or at the beach, summer nights at a carnival with my friends, and riding in a convertible at night with the top down. I love love love a fragrance that evokes so many memories
