Winning Treasury Challenge #80

Some words from Labiblioteca...

Wow. What a week! I had so, so much fun seeing all the places my little crackled glass bottle went. From a date with Fred Aistaire, to the bottom of the ocean, to many bedroom boudoirs, gift guides for mom, a reading with Gatsby, and bohemian playgrounds. It always astounds me as to how much vision and talent is on this team. I absolutely love participating week to week and this being my second time around winning the challenge, I look forward to continuing on with even more challenges. The treasury I chose as the winner really grabbed me from the first moment. I loved the title, the theme, the picks and just the overall "feeling" I got from Lesa's "The Emperor of Scent". Each thing really does evoke the magic and mystery of the olfactory. From the figs, to the coffee, to the blueberries - I wanted to smell it all! It also reminded me that I really need to read Perfume by Patrick Suskind, which has been on my to-read list for some time now. Thanks so much to everyone who participated and especially to Marmen of FrenchAtticFinds for choosing my treasury in the last challenge. Gracias!!
