Early spring evening



I was out picking herbs yesterday evening and I discovered the BEST smell combination. Fresias + Rosemary + Woodsmoke. If I was a freaky 18th Century perfumer, this is the exact combination of fragrances I would combine to capture a memory of the first days of spring.

    I love freesias. Those are really cute duck bowls.

  4. Now that’s spooky… freesia and woodsmoke are my two favorite scents. I’m trying to imagine a hint of rosemary added into the blend, and I think I like it.

    I have a huge vase of white freesias on my kitchen bench at the moment too and the perfume is superb. I love Spring! And yes, I agree those duck bowls are sweet.

    The smell of spring/summer will always be lilacs and honeysuckle to me, after the rain. Now if that was a perfume, I’d wear it everyday…

    I did a similar thing yesterday evening though my combination was violets, oregano and freesias.I have wee vases filled with jasmine scattered around the house too.

    I love, luff, lurve spring.

    Oh you should so pitch that to a perfume company, sounds just like something I’d wear!

    OH MY, I can imagine that scent, freesias are my favourite flowers and rosemary is a very underrated accompaniment to a floral bouquet, both have such beautiful scents! I haven’t experienced woodsmoke before but i can imagine its musky.
