Sarah Has Owned This Spray For 26 Years!
It's hard to believe it's been 26 years since 'Santa' left this Sweet Dreams room spray. It's to help you get a good night sleep. Somehow, I've managed to keep it all this time...and it's still half full.
I was still living in Germany when I got it. I had forgotten all about it and was surprised it survived the overseas move. After unpacking it, I put it in my bathroom and would occasionally smell it. The smell would trigger happy memories from Germany: where we lived, my old room, my friends.
When I moved out of my parents' house, I packed it with me...and it's just always ended up in my medicine cabinet. Over the years, I seemed to look at it less and less...but always knew it was there. Several years passed and I decided to smell it. The smell turned from pleasant to an acetone type smell. But after that strong odor dissipates, I can get a slight whiff of what it once was...and suddenly I'm 13 again.
It's been 26 years that this botanical spray, from Smith & Vandiver, has been in my possession. I just can't bring myself to throw it out. According to their website, they don't seem to make it anymore.
