Maybe the best thing about summer

I was on the way back to the kitchen with a tomato I'd just picked and wondered why the scent isn't used more often in perfume. It's sharp, like a citrus, sweet, a little spicy, very fresh. A little like basil or grapefruit, but also grassy. It would probably be hard to place, and blend well with other odors. I'd wear it.

have you smelled this?


i wore 'memory of kindness' for a while, and it does indeed smell like tomatoes on the vine.

I love that smell. Demeter makes a "Tomato" fragrance . It has that initial hit of tomato vine but the scent doesn't last.
