     One of my very favorite scents is Orange blossom. In Florida, at a certain time of year, it's everywhere. It is especially strong in the night -- it is pleasantly surprising to be riding around and pass a grove in the dark, and be overpowered by that smell. It's intoxicating. Whatever you were thinking about just slips away, and you find yourself feeling happy.
     All the tourist places sell orange oil. While it smells pretty, believe me it is not the same. It can only remind you of the ghost of a haunting, seductive memory.
     A person can get lost in that scent.
