Walking into old houses sometimes reminds me of visiting favourite relatives in my younger days. And what is more welcoming than walking into a friend's house greeted by the wonderful smell of freshly baked bread or chicken soup simmering on the kitchen stove? Or how about walking through the perfume section of a department store or past the open door of a candy shop, flower shop or fast food store? All of these places have distinctive smells associated with them that conjure up either pleasant or very unpleasant memories.

Very few ladies in our modern age have time to be pampered, let alone enjoy a decadent beauty and grooming ritual like our counterparts of yesteryear.
