‘Oil of Evening Primrose Rich Moisturising Cream’ the label reads. It sounds like it should have a strong smell and that’s all I care about. It doesn’t have to be a nice smell, just a distinctive one. I’ll make sure I use lashings of it every day I’m away, then never use it again. I need another jar for when I come back. I’ll keep that second jar for at least a year before I open it, then when I do, and I smell the smell, the memories of the week I’m about to have will come flooding back. Not just the memories. I’ll be able to recreate the actual experience and my feelings and everything. But I mustn’t do it too often or I’ll become immune. That’s how your sense of smell works. Zena says. So Evening Primrose, you are my chosen memory agent. I am taking you to the counter to pay for you in preparation for the most important week of my life so far. Shame Zena isn’t coming but that’s her own fault.
