smell this…burnt orange

burnt1Singed sweetness emanates from the aroma burnt orange. Bordering on the rich brown characteristic of caramelized sugar, this whiff of orange is all about boundaries. At what point does sweet turn to spice and when do we know when we have had too much of a good thing? When fruity zest turns to flambéed fantasy, the fun lies in trying to pinpoint the moment of metamorphoses. Like a desert sunset over the day’s scorching sand, this whiff of orange stretches our senses as far as they will go before taking them to another frequency. For the duality in us all, and for the exploratory psyche that loves to take that one more step, this aroma is a perfect fit.
