Sniffing Away…with Jasmine and Ginger!
Have you ever had a sniff of something wonderful….something so irresistible that you just keep sniffing and enjoying, over and over the beautiful fragrance?
I know…you are probably thinking I am a bit weird and for those of you who follow my Blog….you would be right!
Well, that happened to me last week.
I was actually browsing one of my favorite shops…The World Market, searching for tall drinking glasses to match my shorter drinking glasses.
I am preparing for another dinner party (and it is coming up fast on my calendar)….or I would have ordered on line, as that is my preference.
Not finding the desired glasses…I couldn’t help but wander the rest of the shop, which luckily…was not very crowded.
As I passed the “bath shop”….there was a display of lovely soaps, and there it was!
That beautiful, wonderful fragrance that I just couldn’t stop “sniffing”.
However, the display had several fragrances and it was up to me to determine which of these bars of soap was calling out to me.
It didn’t take me long to discover it was the Jasmine and Ginger bar.
Can I tell you that I stood there sniffing through the cellophane…. just like a kid in a candy store.
As I held the cake of soap in my hand…close to my nose…eyes closed, I was already seeing the picture unfold before me.
I would be immersed in a bubble bath, strains of Clair de Lune playing softly in the background….you know my connection to the moon!
No, my mind raced through my favorite instrumental music and Obsession Confession by Sting on the Spanish Guitar… which was played at the wedding of Me and My Captain….came to mind.
No,…. the romantic music should be Lonely Island by the great pianist Ernesto Cortazar, also played at our wedding.
Well, it would be one of those lovely melodies.
Yes, that would be the background and I would sit this French Bar of soap…right beside my glass of wine and let all the cares of the day drift away!
Well, I decided I had to have this bouquet of Jasmine and Ginger for my aromatherapy.
I have Jasmine and Night Blooming Jasmine growing in my Secret Garden… and Ginger on my Lanai in a huge pot…never thought of the combination! 😉
I looked at the price and stepped back a bit, but laid it gently in my basket anyway. 🙂
After arriving home…..I had to tear a little corner of the wrapper off so I could completely be engulfed in the “sniffing” of my new favorite.
Have you my dear readers ever been enamored with something as silly as a bar of soap?
We really do need to stop and smell the roses…or the Jasmine…or the Ginger!
Right now I have a closet to clean out….;(
If you would like to hear the lovely relaxing and soothing piano strains of Ernesto Cortazar…just click on the “featured video”, upper right corner of my Blog. 🙂 Yes…it is romantic! You know me…..
