Scents

It's hot again here today. And dusty (again). Damn construction.

Is there an Aveda convention in town or something? Do they do their training here? I walked down Hoyt and through a group of women exiting a building, each of them carrying an Aveda bag. They all smelled good, though. And not in an overwhelming sort of way: lavender, citrus, peppermint, rosemary, jasmine. I was oddly tempted to follow them, breezing along in a little sea of olfactory bliss. But I didn't.

Fortunately, there were lavender plants right in front of Oblation. So I stroked them, and now my hands smell like lavender. Mmmm. Was talking yesterday about the connection between scent and memory, between scent and emotion. Lavender has associations for me now. Good ones. Tinged with the smell of grass and of clean, sun-warmed hair.
