Jameel: scented djinn fantasy

File:James Tissot - Holyday.jpgJameel is ready to go on a postprandial stroll, so he calls ringingly out to his friends with a fresh green citrus shout! Once they have all convened, he opens the hike through the southern Mediterranean citrus groves with a brace of bitter petitgrain or neroli,  but then, just as quickly, he kicks up some dust, then squats down in the middle of the dirt path. He Isn’t going anywhere till he gets his lemonade. And a brandy and a cigar. For he is a well-travelled and coddled sophisticate, this Jameel, even if he is a bit indolent.

  4. Oh Ines! I am sorry! I need to get a different email up! That one doesn't work very well! I apologize--I'll find those emails and get back to you!

  5. Michael, the scented djinn is a niche natural perfume line--if you've run across the blog "oh true apothecary"--that's written by the perfumer, Justine, who is a pretty cool person, it seems....

  10. Thanks, all! I was a bit worried about this one--it's a bit abstract, but that's what I saw, and I try to be true to my impressions....
