Grownup Perfume

In high school the first perfume I bought was Jungle Gardenia in an effort to duplicate the unforgettable, heady scent of my gardenia prom corsages. But, later when I was working as a college intern I decided to pick out a perfume to match the woman I had become. It was L'Air du Temps in a beautiful Lalique bottle with a bird on top. Today when I smell the blend of gardenia, musk, rose, carnation and sandalwood it takes me back to that day when I chose my first 'grownup perfume'.
