Scents of my youth

When I was in grade school (in the 80s--haha!), I remember everyone in my school used baby cologne. Somehow as we all got older, we graduated to designer colognes and perfumes. I distinctly remember 3 brands which we used to buy at Tickle's or Regina's in old school Greenhills Shoppesville Center - Nenuco, Para Mi Bebe and Denenes. These are all Spanish brands and they smell oh-so-clean, fresh and baby-ish.

So here I am, over half a lifetime later and I find myself forgoing the designer brands. I find them quite strong for my nostrils lately. Or maybe it's just the extra sensitive pregnant sense of smell. I have been using this for the past year.

C.O. Bigelow Lemon and Lime Body Tonic. As the name suggests, it smells very lemon-y, but not so lemon-y that you smell like Lysol or Pledge. I love it. And supposedly it also helps tone your skin. Well, whatever I love the scent especially for after bath.

I got this while I was in Chicago a few weeks back.

Zara Eau de Cologne for Baby. There's actually quite a few of them--Baby Girl, Baby Boy, Teen Girl, Teen Boy, Baby baby. At about $13, it was a bargain. I completely regret not getting more. But it's ok, I'm sure I'll be back there in at least a year or I can always have my cousin or friends get some for me. Hehe!

So back to tge scents of my youth, I did some research and found both Nenuco and Denenes online. Happiness!!!! Although, I don't think I need to buy them just yet, I'm just glad to know that they are available for purchase.
