It is that time again, the time of year where I get all mushy about my favorite spring smell – the beloved, somewhat naught daphne. If you haven’t lived through my rantings every spring about the daphne, well, trust me, you’ll have to listen to it again if you stick around.
Every spring, and I never know if it will be in April or in May, I get out of my car and catch the most beautiful scent in the world – the first scent of spring, which for me is my daphne. It is sweet and pure, but sometimes has this dirty undertone that takes my breath away. Right now, with the first blossoms, it is all sweet. As the blooms age, then they get a little more rank.
So what to do when I fall in love with my daphne – again? Go drag out Parfums Delrae Wit, which is one of the most perfect daphne scents — okay, it’s about the only daphne scent made. Napa Valley Cielo was pretty great daphne, but they don’t make it anymore.
So that’s my Snoopy Dancin’ spring is here scent. It signals that winter is really going or gone. This year is so early for the blooms, which usually means we’ve got another foot of snow coming. Yeah, it’s Denver, we get a late snow even in June.
What scent do you catch that is your Snoopy Dance spring scent?
