What’s That Fragrance?

When I saw today’s one-word prompt, “Fragrance,” the first thing I thought of was that infamous scene from the movie, “Apocalypse Now,” where Robert Duvall said, “I love the fragrance of napalm in the morning.”

I thought, “Well, that was easy.” Then I Googled “fragrance of napalm” to find a video clip of that scene to put in this post. Imagine my surprise when I watched the clip and saw that Robert Duvall never actually said, “I love the fragrance of napalm in the morning.” Nope. What he did say was, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”

Now all I smell is the fragrance of embarrassment. Oh well. My bad.

Okay, it’s time to rise and shine and to start up the coffee grinder/brewer. Because there’s is nothing like the fragrance of coffee in the morning. It smells like victory — for having survived yet another day.

    I love the fragrance of freshly ground or brewed coffee. And cotton candy (though, I don’t like eating it) just smelling it and wanting to eat it.

      Those ARE some of the best smells, next to new born babies – pre stinky poop.

    When I was younger, I used to love the fragrance of a woman’s hair. Now that I am older and wiser, coffee does the trick! πŸ™‚
