Scented flowers

Hyacinths and a Christmas rose in my porch at home.
 Isn't it nice when you pass someone in the street and they smell nice? If someone or some place smells nice we want to linger and enjoy the moment. I like natural smells - fresh flowers and sea breezes. 
We are constantly being urged to use our other senses - look at this! taste this! feel this! hear this! but most of the time we're not really aware of our sense of smell. Towns smell neutral.
Yet some smells linger in the memory. I remember my mother's Madame Rochas perfume from when I was a little girl.
