Memories Are Like Doves

Ever since his mission, Jaren has been searching for Dove body wash in Calming Night. A couple weeks ago, he finally found it at Big Lots. I opened the lid and took in a whiff. I didn't recognize anything. However, when I used it later that day, an overwhelming feeling washed over me: I know I have smelled this scent often in my childhood, but I can't remember where or why ( I know mom wouldn't have bought the body wash since this was $3 for a smallish bottle). If any of you (my family, or anyone else I guess) could help me, I would greatly appreciate it. The only catch is that you have to buy and use the body wash to be able to properly smell it. Thanks!

P.S. I know the bottle says, "calming scent of sandalwood" on it, but I hate the scent of sandalwood, so it must be something else.

Yes, I know what it is you're remembering. When I pass gass, it always has "the calming scent of sandalwood". Mystery solved.

I had a pen that was carved out of sandal wood. I don't know what happened to it. The whole pen was carved in some ornate shape. I think it was animals or something. I got it from my 5th or 6th grade teacher after she went to Africa on vacation.
