Scent of a……

Scent of a......

The fairest things have fleetest ends,
Their scent survives their close:
But the rose’s scent is bitterness
To him that loved the rose.

~Francis Thompson~

They say that the strongest tie to a memory is through scent! I completely agree! Nothing can take me back in time quite like a smell, even the smallest whiff can bring back memories, both good and bad!

The smell of a lunchbox is timeless! I smell that and it takes me back to when I was in grade 1 and broke the glass liner in my thermos! I cried….I couldn’t drink my chocolate milk!

I love the smell of diesel exhaust! It’s a smell that people either love or hate….and I’m a lover of it! It reminds me of an early morning truck stop, in the winter…all the idling trucks with their drivers quietly sleeping! I’ve always been a morning person, so I was always up early to get the day started! Ah…I love the smell of exhaust in the morning!!

I adore the smell of rain on soil! I think it’s a farmer thing! It freshens the air and smells like nothing else in this world! It represents spring to me…the end of the long winter, when the moisture coming down from the sky is rain instead of snow!

The smell of popcorn popping takes me back to when I was young and it was a Friday or Saturday night and we’d make popcorn. We’d get the old aluminum pot out….it had scorch marks on the bottom from when we left it a little too long and burned some! We’d watch it pop until the lid lifted up and we shook it like heck to keep it going! Good times!

This time of year brings out all the school supplies and they collectively have a smell all their own. I love school supplies and really wish I had someone to buy them for! I usually pick up a few things every fall just to enjoy the smell and feel of it! There’s nothing happier than having all the pens, pencils, and erasers in a pencil case and perched atop a pile of notebooks and Duo-Tangs! Ha Duo-Tang……I love that name!

And now, on with the show! I’ll start with the Laced Pants in rainbow from =Pooch= Store! They’re the latest group gift and is compatible with the classic avatars, plus the Maitreya and Belleza mesh bodies! Everyone needs some standard applier clothes in their inventory! There’s never an issue wearing boots, and no problems with mesh clothing not overlapping well, so if you’re looking for original and unique applier wear, make =Pooch= one of your regular stops! Oh..and the group is free to join….Yay!

The newest release from GLAMISTRY is the HIBISCUS Heels and they’re a great pair of shoes! They’re SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza compatible and with the new pricing at GLAMISTRY you can’t beat it!

You’ll have to take a close look at this fantabulous tattoo! It’s the Exposed Ribs from Pimp My Sh!t and if that’s what I look like inside….I’ve got some major problems! Absolutely LOVE this one!

The Leign Bustier is from a previous round of Luxe Box from Blueberry!

The Lilou hair is from KoKoLoReS!

I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

Poses by Le Poppycock!

I took these pictures outside the Neurolab Inc. main store.
