My Dad smells of … grapefruityafter-shave. Of toast and butter at breakfast. Of clean laundry... But sometimes he smells of the cat blanket, of the soggy mop, or the dustbin.

My Mum smells of... nappy cream for my baby brother’s bottom. Of flowers picked from the garden. Of holidays in the sun. But sometimes she smells of burnt pizza,of dirty laundry in a heap, or chlorine from the swimming pool...

And sometimes they don’t smell of anything at all.

They smell of vanilla, like the all the family!
