The strong smell of flowers…
Last night I was in bed and just about to settle in to sleep. I had just watched a movie. I don’t think the movie matters but I will mention it. I watched “Rock Star.” So, I was laying in bed and the most wonderful fragrance of perfume came over me. The strong smell of flowers. I was smelling the air, the comforter, the sheets. It was a great smell. I thought, wow—this is so nice but what does this mean? I didn’t feel afraid or unhappy at the time just that I liked the smell. I fell asleep.
She smelled just like the strong smell of flowers I smelled last night.
So, today I had a dentist appointment at 7:30am. The dental hygienist who I’ve never met sat next to me to work on my teeth. She had the fragrance on. I thought to myself this is crazy, she smells just like the wonderful smell I smelled last night. I wasn’t going to mention this but I just had to. I asked her, “What are you wearing?” She replied, “Oh is it bothering you? I never put on fragrances in the event of clients being allergic.”
“I’ve never had this kind of experience happen to me before.”
Then I told her about last night. I told her I didn’t want her to think I was a nut, but I’ve never had this kind of experience happen to me before. Again, I want to mention that I have never met her before and that she is new to my dentist office. We’ve never crossed paths!
Final note: I don’t have anxiety going to my dentist. So, going to the dentist is not a factor in this situation. What do you think?

Thanks for sharing your story, Denise. Smell is a common and powerful theme in true paranormal stories. Some of my early memories of moving into a new home include the smell of pipe tobacco. I came to learn the previous owner would light up in the den after dinner.
