There’s a magic time that announces summer has arrived. It’s not the warmer weather or the ending of another school year. It’s not embarking upon of a long awaited vacation or even the ding-a-ling of a neighborhood ice cream truck.
Summer arrives at a special moment when the sun begins to lower in the sky, the night starts to seep in and the air is humid and warm as breath. At this very moment, heady scents on the evening breeze meld together in a brew of ambrosia. Like an organic pheromone tantalizing your imagination that laid dormant the rest of the year.
This scent, this aromatic vapor invades the body like a succubus, seducing mundane thoughts into anticipated adventure and conjured fantasy. This scent plays and blends with temperate fertile earth and stirs together with sweet blooming flowers, herbs and hidden honey combs.
It’s a sensation that hints you might have stayed dormant too long and spurs in your stomach a butterfly tingle of curiosity. Your anticipation is heightened by a cool trickle of sweat on your neck as the first summer scent wafts under your nose and introduces the magic of summer.
