Fragrance is magical....
We remember past moments and also some special people when a fragrance wafts in at unexpected moments.
I have many special memories associated with many different fragrances. The smell of a new books inevitably takes me back to school going days. Jasmine smell reminds me of those marriages I had attended and reminds me of many blushing brides.
I read about Aromatherapy recently and came to know about how fragrance can be used for our benefits.
