The smell of plastic

"I know that I can definitely remember a lot before the age of three and a half because that was when my father died and I remember I think this is possibly my first memory. I was standing in the front room of our house when my father walked in. He had been away and had brought presents. He gave me a little plastic pinny. The thing I recall is the smell of the plastic. Whenever I smell that particular plastic smell I am immediately taken back to that incident."
