Don't come near me then; I'm allergic to citrus fruit. I've taken many a lemon-grass scented young lady back to my place to sneeze all night, when I was a youth.

    Something bright and clear - maybe with a hint of citrus?

  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.

    As for a container, why not something like a chaosphere?

  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.
