Daily Prompt- Perfume

Attempt 1

I think, it’s a blessed day today for my blog πŸ˜‰ As I’ve ignored my blog, writing and reading in long time, today is the day when I not only passionately wrote and published a post and decided to start a series of my wedding experiences; I’ve also participated in Daily Prompts Challenges. And to add, I read month on month posts of one of my fellow bloggers, whose posts were so captivating that I kept on reading and reading. So this is going to be my second post in a day.. round of applause and beating drums… πŸ˜€ The idea of this post had crossed my mind this evening when i came back home and while i was going through various blogs and saw the Daily Prompts Topic, I couldn’t resist myself from writing this and hence, two posts in a day. So kindly bear with me πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Perfume, Aroma, Fragrance, Bouquet, Odor, Scent, Stench, Stink can all be used to describe smell and what are those distinct perfumes, aroma, fragrance which makes us happy and nostalgic.Β Here are some of my favorites-

  1. The sweet smell of boiling milk (one of the primary reasons which triggered the idea of this post πŸ™‚ while i was making tea this evening)
  2. Not to forget and high on ranking- smell of wet soil during rain
  3. Smell of agarbatti, diya and kapoor (camphor)
  4. Aroma of ghee and havan which fills and purifies the atmosphere
  5. Ghee ka Tadka in Daal either using jeera (cumin) or rai (musturd seeds)- super nostalgic. I instantly start to miss my mom and her food 😦
  6. Smell of a new born baby and Johnson’s baby products. I love its fragrance πŸ™‚
  7. Smell of my husband’s deo/perfume πŸ˜‰
  8. My own body smell πŸ˜‰
  9. Aroma of brewing coffee… ahhhh.. so fulfilling… πŸ™‚
  10. Rose water- It’s so freshening
  11. Smell of lemon and cucumber salad
  12. Aroma of delicious and lip-smacking Chicken Kosha/Curry by Hubby dearest πŸ˜‰
  13. Smell of freshly cut onions and when you stir fry them along with garlic; fresh coriander, curry and mint leaves, raw mango, lemon, mere thought of mango and lemon are enough to make my mouth water! πŸ˜€

At the moment my thinking capability is limited to only these many points. I think, we all have this love and hate relationship with perfumes, aroma, smell… etc etc. They have this instant capability to take us back to memory lane.
