Poetry inspired by the perfume Hinoki from Comme de Garcons.
I promised to build us a cedar home
But then life took us to different places.
Your love eases me every step we go
‘til we reach that Hinoki Oasis.
I love the smell of cedar – it reminds me of working in the gardens as a child (I was also on trimming duty for the cedar shrubs). When I smelled the cedar-like Hinoki, I immediately felt peaceful. It really takes me back.
Am I the only one who grew up pruning the cedar shrubs?
