Lanman and Kemp's Florida Water reminds me of my now passed older brother who brought it back after a trip to Cuba right before it closed to American citizens in the 1960's.
Cracking open the foil seal
his musk, tan skin that he liked to peel off as a sheet of map with his crooked smile and fisherman muscles
cinnamon, joyous neroli, sun-bleached hair lemon
bergamot, settling clove, sensitive heart whom I adore
lavender that I grew well with inherited green-thumb
rose - family pets were buried under their bushes
jasmine – an eternal favorite shared in tea
All in a bottle ! Instant! Sniff !
