The Soartful prompt this week is 'Fragrance' but rather than use the image provided, I decided to use an image related to the first 'proper' perfume that I was given, Dioressence. My dad travelled a lot in his job and came back from trips to the US in the 1960's and early 70's with a transister radio, a cassette player, at a time when these were unknown locally, and lots of lovely dresses for me and my sister. As we got older buying clothes was not such an easy task and so he started to buy duty free perfume in the airport or on the plane. The first bottle he bought for me was Dioressence. I loved the smell of Lily of the Valley, although it always made me sneeze! Pefume still makes me sneeze, but I continue to wear it.
The image is from a vintage Dioressence advertisement, which I have chopped, duplicated and generally messed around with! Over that is a scribble overlay from the Scrappin' Cop and underneath a pic of lily of the valley.
