its raining outside.. i took a deep breath (as i have always loved the smell of rain) and suddenly, the smell of it reminded of me home again (i have been thinking of going home the past days.. :( ) in so doing, i thought that writing about my favorite scents in the world would help ease the sudden loneliness i have inside my heart now.

the morning air. together with the sight of the beautiful mt. isarog, you serve as good morning pop ups before i go to work.

ivory soap. it was still innocence when i fell in love with you. your scent always brought me to a world of gentleness and mildness.  night baths are the bests because of you.  

freshly cut grass. one thing i love about adnu is your once a month party.  the smell of your greens are like stimulants to me (hehe.. addict).

everbilena's blackwater (for men) aqua scent. you are peace and serenity to me. you are contentment and security to me. your scent is home, is refuge. i love it on my sheets. every sleep is like lying on clouds, and dreaming of happy things and bestest sighs. can i keep you?

night beach. its always a gift to smell you and at the same time enjoy the sight of my moon and its stars.  you are witness to every love-story-turned-pale in my life. and you always placed high hopes on me to hear me utter the words "next please."

toasted sipao, chicken skin, corned beef, badi. how do i love thee, let me count the ways. 

elizabeth arden's green tea. the smell of citrus, peppermint, and soft musk never fails to excite my nostrils and my spirit. 

mama's scent and clothes. its weird that even if she changes colognes or perfumes, its like the same scent that i keep smelling since i was a kid.  amazing grace.

its only now that i realized that the scents i love the most are very much associated with where my home really is.. i look forward to discovering new scents here in my new heaven.  in time...

  1. hhhmmm... reminds me of this quote from the episode Memorial Essence of the anime boys be:

    "Nice memories have their own scent. Whenever you are veiled in its scent, Your heart can always return to your unforgettable past. Together with your own scenery that will never fade."

    I guess memories aren't just all about what our brains have stored inside. hehehe. ;)

  2. elizabeth arden's green tea --- meron ako dito ate. halos paubos na nung binigay sakin ni mama. hehe u want?

    miss you!!!
