How to use scent in a sentence?

  1. Victor Hugo:

    Separated lovers cheat absence by a thousand fancies which have their own reality. They are prevented from seeing one another and they cannot write; nevertheless they find countless mysterious ways of corresponding, by sending each other the song of birds, the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighing of the wind, and the gleam of the stars --all the beauties of creation.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.

  3. Joe Sliwkowski:

    You want (that) to be the top layer, it's the scent you want on top.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The most favorite perfume, for gentlemen and ladies alike, has been the "New Car Perfume" by far. Interestingly this new-car-like-smell is nothing but the floating volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your new car, which aren't good at all for either the humans or the environment. I often think that the best fragrance must be Petrichor, the exquisite earthy smell that often permeates in the air, right after the first intimate union of fresh and purest rain drops with hot and awaiting thirsty ground. No fragrance can ever match the attractive and seductive scent of Petrichor, in my view.

  5. Rooma Mehra:

    Nature’s serenity is there for us to see, hear and feel in the majesty of the mountains, the vastness of the sea, the whisper of the whistling wind, the incredible scent-of-a-quenched-happy-earth after rain.. it makes my heart glow with a happiness unparalleled by any other joy… sends my tired senses into a meditative trance.. the earth is a kaleidoscope of dreamscapes.
