“Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.” —W. Somerset Maugham

Does the blossom sniff the bee
In their pollinating ecstasy

If we breathe the scent of goodly grass, the fragrance of spices, the aroma of good fruits, we pronounce a blessing over the pleasure.

Shmuel Yosef Agnon

Does the rose smell sweet Romeo
Below Juliet’s balcony

If you are possessed by an idea, you find it expressed everywhere, you even smell it.

Thomas Mann

Like pheromones fertile and fruity
Flora emit esters of beauty

You can pick wild strawberries with your eyes closed, locating them by smell.

―Hope Jahren

A nose for beauty rambling and in rows
Senses the odor of an ode

Behave so the aroma of your actions may enhance the general sweetness of the atmosphere.

Henry David Thoreau
