I love the idea of vintage perfume bottles. A single scent can bring back a bouquet of memories. It can send you spinning into a feeling, a place that you thought you had completely forgotten. Imagine the number of memories held within a single vintage perfume. Imagine the hundreds or even thousands of people who wore this scent, their spouses, children, and friends who could identify them by one smell. Imagine the number of memories held within one bottle.

"As perfume doth remain In the folds where it hath lain, So the thought of you, remaining Deeply folded in my brain, Will not leave me: all things leave me: You remain.”Arthur Symons
