How to use scent in a sentence?

  1. Colin Grant:

    I love 3-D movies...that's exactly what it was like. you could be following a jet ski...they could add scent. They could add mist.

  2. Jules Verne, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Chapter 34:

    Scent is the soul of flowers, and sea flowers, as splendid as they may be, have no soul!

  3. 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.

  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. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    The scent of the morning is prepared by the night; the scent of the night is prepared by the day; everything helps everything!
