Lilacs!! When I was growing up in the country we had a line of these in our backyard. Every spring the winds would blow (as they happen to do so here) and the scent would fill our house. And they don’t last very long, just a few weeks then you have to wait another year before you could smell the relaxing scent again.
So you could imagine how happy I was to find out that my new residence had some lilac bushes! 🙂
Also, my mom informed me that they purchased a new lilac tree! Here is a shot from my mom’s tree!
I have found it is extremely difficult to replicate the lilac scent. So many products try but can never quite perfect it. Every so often I will find a product that makes me feel as if the real thing is near by and will purchase it, but that is few and far between.
