It takes an effort to think of a scene or person and match it with a single scent. But catch even the slightest whiff of a poignant smell, and you'll be flooded with memories and associations so vivid you can almost taste them. A Mother's Bouquet pairs that chemistry and emotion with a charming collection of stories, factoids, literary excerpts, recipes, and quotes about mothers and grandmothers - all with an olfactory glow.Readers will revel in the evocative fragrance of the four scent patches scattered throughout this book- apple pie, talcum powder, gardenias, and perfume. These universally appealing maternal aromas enhance the sensual text and whimsical illustrations for a winning combination of warmth and nostalgia. Also included are mouth-watering recipes for comfort food favorites, from Mom's chicken soup to chocolate chip cookies, and quotes from literary sources such as Rebecca Wells's Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood."The scents of a mother - from her face cream to her favorite flower - envelops us from the moment we leave the womb; reassure us as children; bring us back to a safe, warm place whenever we catch a whiff of Chanel Number 5, marinara sauce, cheap white wine, lavender, expensive wool, or whatever scents evoke our own moms," reads the text. Mmmm,
