All I can do is put my perfume in the books I give you with high hopes that you begin to see me as a beautiful fantasy, like one that might unfold on the pages.
That sounds really intimate.
I myself have sprayed hints on my cologne on my love letters. He’s a lucky one.
I'm just a supporting character in his story for the time being. My strategy was to pass onto him a terrible book (with just the slightest bit of sweet smell) so we could have a lighthearted conversation when he too detected how repulsive it is. He brought it back, agreeing how terrible it was of course haha. I made it up by handing out my favorite, in full bloom. Fingers crossed that it leaves an impression.
*clarification: when he detected how plain bad that story was, not that he detected some rancid perfume
i love this
i leave a little trace of perfume whenever i get the chance
