The Way You Were

from Clipart.com

For a fun element to try in your marriage (especially if you’ve been married for a few years), wear the same cologne or perfume that you wore when dating. Don’t tell your mate what you are wearing, but see if he or she detects fragrant memories and traces them exactly back to those early years.

Different smells are often equated with fond memories. Think about some smell you really love and why you feel that way. What memories do you think about when you smell rain, an ocean beach, oatmeal cookies baking, baby lotion, or a clean house? That’s why candle companies use these scents for frangrances.

Don’t be horribly disappointed if your spouse doesn’t place the scent with those earlier years, but give it a try to see what happens.

What do you think? Do you have a special aroma you think of from the early years you knew each other?
