“There’s something about the aromatic lure that can take our mind off of things, even if for one moment.”
– Trace Le
What & Where:
Musician and writer based in Los Angeles, CA—Silver Lake to be exact.
When I smell Sandalwood, I think of my preferred months, the colder ones, in a thick warm coat on a long walk where my face is cold, but I’m happy. A friend made me a personalized scent with Sandalwood that I carried with me through Paris in the fall a few years ago. The last couple of times I visited, I would be sure to have it on me, in my pocket alongside a warm croissant or two. This scent is a combination of a faraway home meets anonymity, hints of comfort with a lot of curiosity, and a pretty close to a complete contentedness kind of feeling.
Perfumery as Medicine:
The first thing that comes to mind is focus. There’s something about the aromatic lure that can take our mind off of things, even if for one moment. And so, it does serve itself as a medicine of sorts in that it heals and distracts and makes you feel better.
