Harry Potter MotW #82

What Would Your Amortentia Smell Like?

...
The Ocean - The salty tang soothes my soul.
Fresh Raspberries - My favorite fruit.
Wintergreen - Similar to Mint/Spearmint but much more appealing to me.

I'm not sure what those combined aromas would get me, but here's hoping they'd be as enticing put together as they are separately ;P There's something about the idea of Amortentia that's so cool, isn't there?  I mean, I would never use the thing, but I love how it smells differently for everyone, according to what attracts a person.  JKR really is a genius!

    Oh, I love the smell of the ocean, too! Good one! =D

    My favourite fruit is mango, but I prefer tasting it to smelling it. (Yes, yes, I know that taste and smell are practically the same sense--but if I smelled a mango but couldn't taste it, I'd hardly be happy! =P)

  2. Because I'm an island girl, I think mine would smell like coconuts, and the ocean like yours

  3. I love breathing in ocean air! I totally agree that it has a very calming effect. I was lucky enough to go on a work-related outing right by the Atlantic Ocean a few months ago, and smelling an ocean breeze for the first time in years was just heavenly. :D

  4. Oooooh good picks! Mine would probably smell very similar! I love the seaside and the smells (minus the fish markets :X), and mint I just adore! :D Maybe some fresh mowed grass or rain after a hot day... :D Too bad it's only 3 smells!

  5. OH! I like your combination of smells. The Ocean is a great one! The salty air, I can practically smell it now. And fresh raspberries are a good idea too. :D

  6. What a great post. I love Harry Potter.
    I'm not too fan of the smell of the sea. I don't dislike it, but I am so used to it that it's not special anymore. Mine would probably smell like rain after a hot day or my moms pizza dough (I know... it's weird, I have no excuse).

  7. I would love to see how your combination would smell! Mine would definitely involve coconut & vanilla, I love that combination, homemade cookies :D, and perhaps something flowery on the background.

  8. Hmm... you will have to get some essential oils and see what that would smell like. Although... I don't know what you'd use for the ocean breeze. As a kid I used to lock myself in the bathroom, plug the sink, and fill it with everything smelly I could find and make "perfume". It was a horrific concoction of shaving cream, cologne, soap, mouthwash... literally anything that had a scent to it when into my mixture. LoL I definitely shouldn't be mixing fragrances together. HaHaHa

  9. Ooh fun! I'm really not sure what mine would smell like though... probably chocolate-y, heh. And I don't know, I think those scents of yours might combine quite nicely!
