5 Uplifting Fragrant Quotes
“Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting,
yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains,
another, a moonlit beach,
a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes, during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town.
Smells detonate softly in our memory, like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years.
Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once.
A complex vision leaps out of the undergrowth”Diane Ackerman
“I hover over the expensive Scotch,Nick Harkaway
and then the Armagnac,
but finally settle on a glass of rich red claret.
I put it near my nose and nearly pass out.
It smells of old houses and aged wood,
and dark secrets,
but also of hard, hot sunshine through ancient shutters
and long, wicked afternoons in a four-poster bed.
It’s not a wine, it’s a life, right there in the glass.”
“I went out into the gardenMoses Ibn Ezra
in the morning dusk,
When sorrow enveloped me like a cloud;
And the breeze
brought to my nostril the odor of spices,
As a balm of healing for a sick soul.”
Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of Spring,
that delicious commingling of the perfume of arbutus,
the odour of pines,
and the snow soaked soil just warming in to life”Neltje Blanchan
Smell is a potent wizard
that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.
The odors of fruits waft me to my southern home,
to my childhood frolics in the peach orchard.
Other odors, instantaneous and fleeting, cause my heart to dilate joyously
or contract with remembered grief.
Even as I think of smells, my nose is full of scents that start awake sweet memories of summers gone
and ripening fields far away.”Helen Keller
