Rushing in to quickly post a question. So much busier than I thought I'd be. Hope you are all doing well :)
I'm currently having a salad with "garden herbs" (it's a ready-made salad with chicken and potatoes) and lavender is one of them. Every time I bring my nose near to my salad, I am reminded of herbal perfumes (especially with the lavender!) and find myself losing my appetite.
Is there anything that you have associated with something else so strongly, that it now puts you off when in its original form (or vice versa)? An example could be something/somewhere you associate with someone who passed on, or someone who betrayed you.
For my fellow perfumistas, are there notes in perfume that put you off the actual ingredient? Or vice versa (eg I cant take cardamom in perfumes as I use a lot of it in my food)?
While you think about it, here are some images I took last week :)
