SOTD: Mulch


OK, this is straying away from the perfume theme. I'm obsessing about gardening lately. I have more garden space, though only temporarily. And an itty bitty greenhouse--that's permanent. So the most exciting smell I'm experiencing lately is the dusty, damp smell of mulch and potting soil as I walk into the greenhouse and shut the door.

I'll be back to perfume soon, no doubt. Meanwhile, I wonder if Christopher Brosius has ever considered creating a Garden Shed perfume?

I love the smell of mulch! We get ground pine bark here, and it smells of earth and wood. If you leave the bag in the sun for awhile, it steams from decomp and the steam condenses, dampening it and adding a musty smell.

That would be a great idea. Wet fertilizer is the bomb.

Hmm...his Dirt in the Demeter fragrance library series is a good approximation of gardening, rich fertile earth. You'd need more elements for a gardenshed though. Rain is also very good, maybe the too combined?

Yo, Olfacta! Ooh, nice. I don't think I've ever smelled pine bark mulch.

ChickenFreak said...

Hey, Joan! Yes! Should I actually Suggest it to CB?

Howdy, Perfumeshrine! You're right about that. And the dirt in Black March is nice, too, before those flowers start to clutter it up. I'm sure that he could make a very fine Greenhouse perfume.
