In concert with Indieperfumes.com, which is a record of my olfactory enthusiasms, this site will be for many of the associative kicks I get every day from all the beauties around me.

perfume renews all its references to nature over and over with each wear.  But there is this….

The Rose de Jéricho (Anastatica hierochuntica) is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water.
