    I like the smell of fresh honeysuckle

    and sometimes when it is listed in perfumes I like them, but I tried some honeysuckle cream (for body or face) once and it was quite strong and a bit musty and old fashioned...so other than that I like the smell of it!

    Smells Like Summer to Me

    My backyard shed was covered in the stuff and I would always go out and pull the flowers apart and suck on the sweet nectar on the ends. I would make necklaces and watch them fall apart as I run off and play in the dirt. I sat under a tree and watch the hummingbirds play around...

    ...and the Taste.

    It was part of my life until the last 16 years.  I've always had it growing somewhere in the yard, so that it's always pretty to walk by, so that the scent fills the yard in the evening, so that the house smells of honeysuckle when the windows are open, so that you can pick...

    Honeysuckle, Sweet Honeysuckle

    Oh Honeysuckle! That is one of the many things I miss from my old home. I used to love sleeping with the widow open in the summer because you could smell it in the morning.  Honeysuckle grew everywhere there, behind my house, in the woods around my house, by the parks...

    Takes Me Back

    Everytime i smell honeysuckle I remember when I was a little girl  in our backyard. That was a happy time before my parents split and my great-grandmother died. So whenever I smell it, Honeysuckle is not only a great scent but reminds me of better days.

    Both I and the Hummingbird Love the Smell of Honeysuckle

    At Home

    We have honeysuckle at the bottom of our driveway. The scent hovers there and I get to enjoy a whiff of it when I leave and when I come home. When walking to the mail on the weekends I can't help but pluck a flower and taste the sweet drop inside the flower.

    Breathe Deep

    Many many years ago, we used to have a fence that was covered in honeysuckle. When I was mad or upset, I would go outside and push my face into the plant and just breathe deep. It was always so beautiful and relaxing.

    Wish I Could Find a Perfume

    Honeysuckle is the most gentle, graceful, feminine fragrance I've ever smelled. It's sweet and mild, but it still has just a bit of spice--perfect for a perfume. If I could go through life smelling just like a honeysuckle, I'd be a much, much happier and self-actualized person...

    Good Memories.

    When I was living and being raised in New orleans, some of the only memories of my mom and dad and I all together and happy were when they would take me out to a pasture of sorts and we'd pick them and eat it. Hahas there were other reasons my parents wanted to go there... but I...

    I love to take a drive in the springtime, usually around mid-May.  I roll down my windows and enjoy the scent of newly-bloomed honeysuckle.  It's a sure sign that spring has arrived and the long, cold winter is over!

    I like to walk around the block sometimes and on opposite side of the block that my house is on there is a huge bush of honeysuckle and the scent is so beautiful. I wish they made a perfume that was honeysuckle scented. I'd wear it.
