I love it!
This morning, I could still smell it. I've always loved the smell of gardenias. When I was younger I loved the scent of roses and white and yellow ginger. There was also Pikake (Jasmine) and Plumeria (Frangipani).
A long time ago, I actually found a store in Chicago that had a cologne that truly captured the smell of the ginger flower. I used to spray in on our bed. I don't know how much Art appreciated it, but I loved it. Then they discontinued making it. Art was probably glad.
My daughter found a hand cream they made later that had the ginger scent, but it wasn't quite perfect. All those bottles of floral tropical colognes that they sell in the tourist locations don't smell anything like the flower. I know because I keep trying them out to see if anything comes close to the scents I love.
My favorite time is when it's plumeria season. When I open my windows at night, the scent of the plumerias from my neighbor's tree comes wafting into my room with every breeze.
What is your favorite floral scent?
