Do you know the "Lush" soap shops? They sell hand made soap made of vegan ingredients.
Well, soap doesn't sound that interesting, does it? Ha - it's quite the other way round.
The brilliant thing about a Lush soap is that it doesn 't look like boring soap but like a small cake, jello, a piec of coal or like dried mud.
I stumpled into the shop because the smell floating out of the open door worked like a magnet for my nose.
It was great to see the customers standing around concentrating only on their sense of smell for a change after have seen a piece they like.
A serious looking guy holding his nose on a black something that looks like a coal is very funny, believe me.
Exploring the world only by scent could be very thrilling and enlightening. Damn, how to make a nose more sensitive for scent?
The explore-by-scent-thing comes into my mind from time to time. Sometimes I take notes after intense smelling moments.
[ Here ] are some of my eight year old notes from August 2000 from a smelled afternoon (in German language).
What smells do YOU connect with special moments or places?
PS: The Lush shop in Nuremberg is just opposite to the main portal of the Lorenzkirche. Try it!
