Scents

Writing Challenge: June 4, 2017

Prompt: Write about some scents you love.

Vanilla and coconut- soft, sweet, musky, and soothing. They remind me of my mother; they were always her favorite. They are like her: Blonde, light, soft, and soothing, but still strong and resilient.

Rain- heavy, musky, wet, and fresh. I think of thick drops hanging from broad, green leaves. It smells like my childhood and rejuvenation. It smells like a second chance.

Night air- it’s relaxing, clean and pure. Something about the night makes everything seem clear, peaceful, and silent. Like everything can change. Everything can be better.

Lavender- a recent scent I’ve come to appreciate. Before it always reminded me of old age and endings. Now it is relaxing and mature.
