Laurier~Reglisse (Aqua Allegoria, Guerlain)
I enjoy the sweet spicy scent of laurel leaves and reglise ~ to this luscious duo, add some violets, just a touch of orange blossom and amber ... the result is an elegant refreshing scent.

Reglise (licorice) is also popular in tea blends and there is a powdered form used to flavor ice cream. The natural root is nothing like the black rope candy sold in the states.
The laurel leaves and branches pictured are from the only indoor tree we have ~ it's grown like a weed and often needs trimming.
