Reason #133: this Japanese pretends to be an orange and smells wonderfully
I’ve decided to introduce a new category to this blog – “Smell this! series”. I’ve read that technology experts predict we will soon be able to convey scent through computers.
This post is for those reading in the year 2024. Go ahead, scratch and sniff your screen! ;)
You barely notice these trees during the winter, but once they start blooming you realize – they’re everywhere!
Pittosporum tobira is a tree native to Japan and it’s also called Japanese mock-orange. The scent is similar to that of an orange tree, but I would say it’s even stronger.
Although I love it and would gladly hug one all day, I can imagine that, as with all powerful fragrances, not everyone does and that they can’t wait for the season to be over.
