Guidion, thanks for the fine words about the forum. As a mere member myself I'm very glad to have you here and happy to share thoughts and the board with you. I hope you'll be here for a long time.
About a standard or banner I have to say I like the idea, but it doesn't lend itself to smells does it? Our standard should properly be something we make everyone smell, instead of see, as our legions arive on the field. An incense we throw into buckets of burning coals that we carry, perhaps?
Otherwise, when smells are made into visual images, as in when poop on the sidewalk is drawn in comic books, I love the little squiggling lines that radiate out from the blob to show that it smells. Maybe we can use squiggle lines in a similar way. No poop though.
Post more, Guidion, your thoughts are fun to read and think about.
Thanks Chris. Well we could have a shield with the most preferred flower or Herb leaf on it, a Vetiver root perhaps, with a few other embellishments. Heraldic symbolism is quite structured and there are symbols for everything really.
The Motto can be in any language. We are used to Latin , which I always think sounds appropriate for a motto but since fragrance is quite a lot inspired by France maybe a French Motto might issue from the daring Francophiles.
I had an English one so far;
' Fragrance The World Knows'...no apologies-- its a Motto after all.
