I grew up with P&G. When my mom used to tuck me in…. I could smell her enter the room. The last thing she did before she went to bed each night was cover her face in what was then Oil of Olay – now just Olay. I could still pick the scent out of a line-up if asked to try. It just smells like home to me. I now use the same cream, though an updated version and I wonder if my sweet girl will have the same association. I bet she will.
I also bet she will automatically reach for Tide and Charmin, for Crest and Vicks, for Cascade and Pampers. All of the brands I gravitated towards long before I knew they were P&G. I brought them into my home because they WERE home to me. I grew up with them, I trusted them and knew they did everything I expected, from cleaning my clothes to whitening my teeth to fighting my cough.
This past week, I spent a little time in Miami with P&G learning even more about these brands. I know…. MIAMI. I do so love it there…. (what’s NOT to love?? and yes it was 80 degrees the entire time!)
I digress…. I wasn’t there for the scenery….. though I did have some beautiful time to reflect. The purpose of my trip was a P&G event called, “Have You Tried This Yet?” Hosted by Celebrity Stylist, Irma Martinez, I, along with media and a handful of other fabulous bloggers (Audrey McClelland, Vera Sweeney, Coleen Padilla and Ashley Nuzzo) spent one full evening being treated to demonstrations of the newest P&G products.
Let me take you there….
