Springtime = Lilacs
Lilacs mean spring to me, and while they haven't started blooming here I'm ready for them. There used to be a HUGE row of lilacs at my bus stop in jr. high and high school and before the bus came my friends and I would just smell them. yum. (Though the people who moved in since high school trimmed back the massive hedge, they're still there.)
I am especially excited for them after smelling the new (to me at least) scent from Pacifica Perfumes. French Lilac smells like sticking my face in a hedge of lilac, and it is amazing.
I recommend sniffing the candle/perfume/lotion next time you see them. I am allergic to perfume, and the scent might be too much for a body wash, but if I burned the candle for just two minutes I'm sure I'd be transported into the lilac hedge of my youth and it would be delightful.
