Scent of the Day

This blog depicts my interpretation of a chosen scent. I write a description and then list the notes and illustrate with a painting or photograph.

    The perfect scent for a warm day.
    Softly wrapped in loose white linen, I dream.
    Sweet lemonade is the ideal companion

    Deceptively simple, lingering clean scent of soap.
    It must be the geranium that gives this a sense of wonderment.
    Tangy and gentle at the same time.
