Signature Scent


She said it is her signature scent, just words left in the air, yet stayed on my mind.

Coco’s scent captured in sparkly bottles, her scent was No. 5.

What is your signature scent?


What memories does your signature scent leave lingering or send forward?

The olfactory senses are powerful like melodies in music.

Glory is in each scent God has made like that of lavender, sandalwood, myrrh, and gardenia.  There are warm citrus invigorating scents even found among the moss.


At dawn, a blue bird perched atop a verdant tree outside my window.

Singing as autumn leaves began falling.

Chirp, chirp, the blue bird continued with its calling.

Listening. I did so listen.

On and on, at last I heard the song.


Is the scent of truth and wisdom hidden in the costume closet?

Is it masked with Jazzy Jasmine?

I wondered… as the morning dew drops glistening with perfection caught my eye.


Shall the signature scent be found in a vulgar dance dripping of counterfeit sweet spices and frankincense?

Does it slither with a smile concealing a dagger beneath the scent of cinnamon and vanilla?

Does it need to scream and shout from an altar?

Gladly, the petals, the trees, and herbs surrender to us such heavenly secrets for our pleasure.

Heavenly treasure. 

Nature’s beauty brought to shame their ethereal scent lost in deception.

Sadly, often carelessly, flung across the river like a cheap candy wrapper.


A signature scent may not be hypnotic; it may not shout at you like neon lights yet … ever so gingerly your soul’s spirit senses an awakening.

You know it, you feel it, and are one in harmony, mind, body & spirit.

Your heart flutters, your mind may wonder how such magnificence of the purest essence arrived.
