    Kumquat's garden
    Profumum-
    Rosae Mundi, EDP

    The memory of a garden, long ago,
    many summers now, the dolls on the porch
    and some strawberry jam.
    Raspberries. Were there raspberries, too?
    Fat and glossy; warming in the sun.

    We played in the sprinklers
    while the robins danced.
    White-hot rays glazed the
    bobbing blossoms on the pink tea roses.
    I can taste it now;

    John Singer Sargent
    Serge Lutens-
    Vetiver Oriental

    Spring rushes forth in this cascade of moss and gold.
    A brisk, sparkling tingle brightens the afternoon.
    Lazing in the grass with a good book, some fine wine and
    charming companions, it might be a perfect day to fly a kite.
    Creamy and unisex, this delightful blend is as sensual as it is poetic.
    Men and women appreciate one another ; yin and yang.

    Guerlain - Shalimar

    Undulating woods layered with dense vanilla;
    a chorus of amber throbs throughout.

    Named for the gardens of Lahore,
    we are transported to ancient times of incense,
    golden veils and velvet pillows in a palace of beauty.

    Exotic flowers grace the bodies of the fair maidens;
    luxuriating in the ancient oils and spices of their
    wondrous world.

    Bessie Coleman, 1892-1926


    Caron-En Avion

    One can feel the rush of the props
    and the cool air as it picks up the scent of violets.
    Clouds scudding by in the azure sky;
    weightless, yet filled with the promise of a glorious day.
    The wind sings in the struts
    as we bank gently over the fields.

    Light leather stirs up from the
    supple coat and gloves,
    while garden flowers
    ...

    Annick Goutal-
    Eau d'Hadrien


    A soothing burst of lemon
    from the sparkling island of Cyprus.

    The fragrant cypress trees possess the lemon scent
    within their craggy branches.

    A swinging hammock;
    my face in the cool shade
    under the great trees.

    Hot sand between my toes,
    a fresh dip in the sea
    and a picnic lunch with dry red wine.

    The crisp
    ...
