I walked by this lilac bush and the scent was so powerful the first thing I did when I got home was order a lilac-scented Yankee Candle. Lilac is one of my favorite fragrances. I was surprised to smell them outside actually, because when I buy a bouquet of them they usually have a very weak scent. I remember when I could buy one bunch and their scent would fill my apartment. It was wonderful! As was walking by the ones here (Madison Square Park).
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
