I was reading an interesting article about the sense of smell. (Don’t Bail on me yet. This gets FUNNY~!) Smells can take you mind traveling in no time flat. One whiff of a campfire, and your mind can be transported to another place. The article I was reading was suggesting that people can pay attention to smells and heighten ability to smell things. It also said we can harness this sense to make ourselves happier~! Imagine that~! Walk near the grapefruits at the supermarket, and get a blast of joy. Smell the honeysuckles while riding a bike, and feel better about the ride. Walk into your Mom’s house, and imprint the smell in your heart (well, if you love your Mom… and I do~!).
One of the interesting things I learned about made me decide I HAVE TO blog on the sense of smell. It is this: THE DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY~! Holy Moly~! I’ve never heard of such a place. There are 244 different smells available…. and some are pretty weird. So, get ready to laugh, or at least tilt your head to the side, quizzically. I wish I could smell some of these. I am SO CURIOUS about a bunch of them, and would enjoy many of the others, even if they are fake smells. I’m gonna guess that some of these are pleasing scents, but HMmmmmmm…….. (All of the photos are links to the shop… for your amusement. You can read the perfumer’s descriptions of the products. )

OK, I’m poking some fun. I bet a lot of these smells have something nice about them. I bet I’d actually like dirt and black pepper. I can truly imagine liking some of these. But, I do say, I think I would prefer some of the others, like lemon, cucumber, many floral scents, and fruity smells. WOW~! What a collection~! There are 244 scents to choose from at THE DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY. Which would you like best? Better yet, which make you laugh the hardest. Best of all, which are you the most tempted to spray on your own body, or in your home?
