Inhale, sublime heaven
Allow me to introduce you to the Mimosa Tree.
They're currently putting on quite the scenty show here in sunny California.
The blooms are fluffy looking little pinkish powder puffs resting on neatly patterned dark greens. Lovely sight. However, the visual pales in comparison to the scent. Go find one, stand under it, breathe deep, faint, repeat. Intoxicating, sweet, heady, the feel good buzz after a tickle, the time you got just what you wanted for your birthday, all that rolled up in a sensual whiff, ah. A mini vacation in a single inhale.
Mimosa tree AKA Albizia Julibrissin, by any other name would smell just as sweet.
