31 Scents of October, #19: BPAL, Against Idleness and Mischief

Against Idleness and Mischief

Against Idleness and MichiefThis is a good smell. I mean, it smells…like niceness. If The Nutcracker was a smell, it would smell like this – praline and marzipan and sweet wine at Christmas.

It isn’t quite foodie, and not quite feminine either. It’s a transient beauty, dying quickly on my skin, and I wish, I so wish that so much more of the honey-cake, carby-flour happiness would last on my skin. But it doesn’t, and this makes me sad.

Instead, on me, it dies down to a sweet powder. It’s not at all unpleasant – it’s lovely, actually, like the memory of sweetened bread hanging in a kitchen. But it isn’t the actuality of the bread itself, and I would so love the cakey reality.
