Fragrance Quote for November Mystery of the Conifers-by Ellen Burns Sherman

Romantic Landscape with Spruce


Who, again, for any mercenary values would surrender his memories of forests, where hemlock, spruce, pine, balsam and woodland blossom mingle their incense with woodland mystery?
Related in its wholesome purity to the fragrance of the morning and the forest is the fresh odorless odor which one brings in on one's clothes and person after a long walk on a cold winter day. What white is to the colors, this fragrant freshness is to the more positive perfumes. Windows that have just been washed and linen dried in the wind and sun also acquire this wholesome redolence, a redolence which one might reasonably fancy is psychically duplicated by the aura of a clean soul.
