name: Laura Bronson, Mother
height: 5′ 7”
weight: 136 lbs.
hair color: gray (was chestnut)
eye color: gray/blue
- Channel #5
Father used to buy her a bottle on her birthday
- Virginia Slims cigarette smoke
- Finesse Moisturizing Shampoo
6.15.1997 – Switched from Suave to Finesse
- Maybelline Lipstick
Since before my birthday, I suspect since 1955 judging by family photo albums
- Stale coffee
Although Mother takes Chamomile tea in the evenings, she takes 5 cups of Folgers coffee a day. Mother always says that taking coffee keeps the mind keen and alert.
- Mild halitosis
I suspect from gingivitis. She brushes in the morning, but she does not floss. Mother has used Crest for as long as I can remember, but it is not part of her smell profile because the coffee masks any hint of it.
- Talcum from rouge
Also Maybelline, though I’ve found the talcum powder is the core smell of all powder-based rouge products
- Downy April Fresh Fabric Softener
6.15.1997 – Began using fabric softener. Switched to Finesse Moisturizing Shampoo on the same day (on the one-year anniversary of Father’s death)
- Moth Balls (colder weather)
Mother keeps moth balls in the coat closet. This is also an important component in our house profile (Profile #5)
Mother moisturizes her hands every night with ointment and then puts on her sleep gloves.
- Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream
for removing her makeup right before taking her Chamomile and ginger snaps.
- UPS (Unique Personal Scent). Somewhat acrid, just a hint of salt pork, tiniest bit of mushroom, boiled cabbage, motor oil.
see volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the complete notes for Profile #2. I believe this profile to be complete. No pending elements. Scent simulation very accurate.
