Scents of Spain

By Adlin Pinto

Imagine a morning’s walk on a mountain hillside in Spain at the start of a heart-warming summer’s day. The light has just come up and the day begins with its morning aroma of First Light. You smell the wild aromatic mountain flora with rosemary and pepper rock. You hear the birds chirping, as you walk past the lush greenery all around you and the sun rays glistening the panorama and warming your skin. The scent is intoxicating so powerful you could almost taste the greenery fruity and floral freshness that surround you. Imagine and read more here in Scents of Spain

Passing fields with orchards the magnificent scent rising is from the ripe and luscious fig-trees, in the beautiful Fig Grove, one that sits alongside a nearby cascade of wild jasmine. Slowing moving letting the warmth kiss your skin further towards your local village crossing warm stones, stones as old as the mountains they sit in, past the church where the door is open.

Noting the waft of coffee, brandy, and black tobacco, laced with leather and incense that reminds you of Alfredo cafe just nearby, so you stop there. But the rain decides to join you so you pause inside for some coffee as you breathe in the aromatic smell of roasted beans.

Rested and fulfilled and as the sun appears after the rain you greet that distinctive scent of lavender, lemon, and lime from the Cloudburst, that sun after rain scent. Further through the village, you mosey until you see some beautiful architectures and you pass a rose garden where you feel the smell of velvety roses with warm geranium, orange blossom like only Sacred Roses can smell. You start the slow uphill climb through wildflowers and bushes towards home because now it is siesta time, you garden sofa is calling you reminding you of the scents of warm summer afternoons when you sit between sleep and wake to rest your bones in warmth surrounded by a lullaby for your senses of lavender, juniper, and thyme ready for Siesta time.

Rested you cook, eat and then read a book and watch the sun go down over the mountain into a cooler evening when different scents of the night including jasmine and tantalising hints of rose rise into your nostrils reminding you of Galán De Noche. Finally, this beautiful gift of a sunny day in the mountain ranges of Spain comes to an end, and how grateful you are for the scent of your own personal arena.
