Pomegranate & Eucalyptus

4711 cut glass flask with silver cap and red and gold label, and box with pomegranate vine.

Shirley Temple cough drops–medicinal grenadine, sweet and mentholated–that fade by the time the lozenge melts.
The combination shouldn’t work. Camphor and red fruit should be dissonant, but here they ring bright and clarifying and joyful.

I love it–not to wear, it’s too ridiculously cheerful–but my entire house, my linens and my gifts will all smell like this next holiday season.


John Wick and Wednesday both sample Vivaldi’s Four seasons.
It’s still winter here.
