A recent stroll through a Sunday market, with the scents of green produce. From bunches of herbs, to aromatic fruits, and the light stems and petals of fresh cut flowers.
“On the weekend I get up early to go and see the local produce at the farmer's market. I love to see what's in season. Throughout the year the colors, and scents change with the season.”
“There's a florist at the local market who sells just iris. They're exquisite. If you buy one, he spends a minute or two delicately wrapping it up before presenting you with the precious stem. It's such a treat.”
Basil: A green herbal note that contributes a freshness analogous to mints (in fact, basil is part of the greater mint family).
Garden Mint: A freshening aromatic classic, the cleaner side of a herb garden.
Water Hyacinth: A green floral that adds a watery aspect that is soft and relaxing.
Cilantro: An aromatic herb with orange facets on top with a spicy, woody-resinous, clay-like background note.
Cucumber: A fresh green note, that is lightly sweet and watery like dew in the morning.
Fig Leaves: Green, slightly bitter note, with a unique scent that brings to mind earth dust, shadow and foliage.
