Ese’s Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Scent

Ese has picked a great theme for her Weekly Shoot and Quote challenge this week – scent.

Scent resonates with me, there are so many memories tied up with smell/scent/fragrance, however you want to describe it.

However, for this challenge, we need quotes…and I found those a bit thin on the ground. At least, the ones that hadn’t already been used…..but there is one scent (and, of course, the accompanying flavour) that is close to my heart – that of wine.

So, here goes, from a celebration in the past – with the scent of a rose chucked in for good measure:

The scent of wine, oh how much more agreeable, laughing, praying, celestial and delicious it is than that of oil!
Francois Rabelais

Wine, and a garden rose

Wine, and a garden rose


  1. The rose, the rose is what makes it special.

  2. Delicious…AND beautiful! 🙂

  3. Ahh, now I thought of this quote too, Sue 😉 Sipping a glass of wine is such a refined way to spend a bit of time.
