As a gift for Andy in honor of a recent rescue mission, I picked out a bouquet of light pink hyacinths, on the verge of blooming. They’ve lasted for over a week, stretching and filling the family room with their pungent fragrance, always verging just short of cloying, and in close proximity perhaps surpassing such a point. They’re more than welcome at this dire time of the year, especially with some more snow on the horizon, and sometimes just the slightest whiff of a spring bloom makes all the difference. Incidentally, out of all the new Tom Ford Jardin Noir collection of Private Blends, the selection I was most enamored of was the Hyacinth-based one – Ombre de Hyacinth. As a rule, I’m not a fan of floral frags, but this one spoke to me because of my fondness for Spring, and the happy correlation to one of its most delicious scents.
