In the last flask was the final product, Absolutely Blooming, which married the notes in an exhilirating combination. I could finally smell them all! Now, there’s probably no real need for actual research to prove that scents are closely linked to memory. In fact, I bet that you would’ve already discovered this quite early on in life. Even if it doesn’t bring the past to mind, a scent is the perfect mood-setter to create new memories with. So, the other members of the media and I got curious: For someone who knew smell so well, what was François Demachy’s favourite scent? I expected the name of a flower, or a complex absolute (or Absolutely Blooming, even). Surprisingly, his answer was simple and laden with emotion: “My mother’s perfume.” If you close your eyes and think back to your own childhood, I’m sure you’d come up with the same answer, too.
