Today from the 'Weenies: Halloween Los Angeles
Beth did a series of scents based on memories of the places she's lived at Halloween. I chose Halloween: Los Angeles since most of my girlhood was spent in the beach cities of LA, and this description resonated:
The sky on fire: a strange incense of burning brush, junegrass, tumbleweeds, chaparral, and wild sage.
In the decant: Hm. Smells musty, like a musty steamer trunk.
Wet: Smoky sage.
Dry: Wow, this really does smell like LA during hill fires; that smell hangs over the whole basin.
Verdict: I'm not sure if I want to smell like Malibu in the average autumn, but damn, she sure nailed it. How do she DO that?
