Maybe lemon.

While at the spa 2 weeks ago, I noticed the delicious smell of lemons
permeating the air. Wanting to smell this again and again, yesterday I
purchased lemon (and lemon grass) essential oils. At home on the dining
table, I placed a lit candle under the lemon oils in water, which heated
the water filled the room with a light hint of lemon scent. I also
purchased new hand moisture for the kitchen sink, which smells of
lemons. To top it off, I filled a spray bottle with purified water and 20
drops of the lemon oil to mist around the living room. Mind you, the lemon
sent is delicate and invigorating. Just enough of a hint to uplift the mind.

I was looking at the blown glass sculpture you gave us some years ago at
your first stay here. It is so beautiful. I would like a fragrance bottle
made out of blown glass - in a perfect square shape with an elegant
spiraling shape inside which contains the perfume. The bottle would rest
on an angle, on a small but sturdy black iron stand - matte black (although
chrome smooth), modern with fine simple lines. The color would be green, a
soft and almost translucent emerald.

(Lemon Grass - A tropical grass (Cymbopogon citratus) native to southern
India and Sri Lanka, yielding an aromatic oil used as flavoring and in
perfumery and medicine.)
