The Scent of Barb
While talking with a friend recently about cologne, I recalled how our family's good friend Barb wore Emeraude. She had a lovely vanity in her bedroom where she lined up her colognes and perfumes. One that she wore often was Emeraude by Coty. The spicy, yet flowery scent was rich. I recall sitting at the little stool in front of the vanity's mirror, thinking that when I grew up, I wanted to be just like Barb and wear Emeraude. My mom loved cologne and always wore some lovely scent or another. I, on the other hand, am a complete bore, opting anymore not to wear any cologne or perfume at all. But, a part of me is still that same little girl, admiring Barb's line-up of colognes and perfumes and thinking that the epitome of womanhood and femininity was to wear Emeraude, so I could be just like Barb.
