Winter blues

It was fun making a list of summer fragrances, but here in Brazil the weather is not helping much. It is cold, wet and windy.
The winter in Sao is not like the snowy winters of the US or Europe. We have sunny and warmer days intercalated by cold gray-ish ones.
I am a winter creature. I just love the fact that we can put layers of clothes, wear nice sweaters, long boots and feel the cold air enter the nostrils in the morning.
Hot soups (minestrone), cappuccinos and herbal teas are my favorites.
I put a lot of pepper and salt in my dishes and most of all, I eat tons of ginger.
In my neighborhood you can smell the scent of burning wood which is amazing, despite the fact that burning wood is not an eco friendly attitude. But still, it is the smell of winter!
So, freezing here in Sao, I decided to make up my lonely list of fragrances that will bring a warm sensation, a feeling of being in a warm bed, of cocooning or heating up the spirit.
I hope you will enjoy my choice's!!

Excelente descrição sensorial sobre o inverno...muito boa mesmo!me lembrou muito a literatura de Ernest Hemingway que era inigualável em descrever as sensações em suas obras literárias.
