Random Thought To Ponder: Amortentia

So… in Harry Potter, there’s this super powerful love potion (Amortentia) that smells different to every person depending on what they like.

It’s similar to Sebold’s description of heaven in The Lovely Bones.

Anyway, ever think about what your potion/heaven would smell like?

Mine would be… jasmine flowers and Love Spell perfume and conditioner and Old Spice and salt air and sunscreen and green tea and the waxy lipstick smell. All that mixed with books. And by books I mean the fresh crack, ink-and-paper, new book smell, as well as the musky, moldy, has-a-life-story smell of old books. Both are so intoxicating-ly delicious.

Like I said… random thought.
