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.
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.
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?

One day I was at my barn cleaning up my horse corral. I don’t live on this property, just rent a small barn for my horse, I live about 8 miles away. I’ve rented this barn for 5 years and have never once smelled anything like this… When suddenly I smelled the beautiful smell of roses so strong in my face I looked around and nothing was around me that could cause this. Another day this happened but inside, the barn dog started going crazy and would not come in the tack room where he normally likes to hang out.
A few weeks later I awoke to the same smell and at this point I have to say I got a little scared. It’s almost as if someone followed me home from the barn.

(February 15) as I walk in for work at 6:45am I smell flowers or potpourri all day at work. I thought maybe my part-time cleaned or something, so I went home and lay down on the bed for a nap before softball practice with my daughters and I told my husband I smell flowers again. I didn’t know until I posted (about smelling things) on Facebook, when a friend said it’s my dad around me.
My dad passed away Nov. 30. My grandma passed away Jan. 28
Crazy cause after church Sunday on valentines we are going to eat with my husband and he changes the radio station and my favorite song Luther Vandross “Dance With My Father” came on and I just started to cry so my husband says, “Do you want me to change the station?” I told him no!!
