A 'Weenie a Day: Askalaphos

BPAL's description: "The daimon that tends the orchards of the Underworld: pomegranate, wonder-flowers, asphodel, and black soil."

My reaction: I get a wisp of pomegranate, a wisp of a heavy floral like rose and a big strong punch of high-quality dirt. In fact, this reminds me of Ace Hardware's store brand of topsoil, which is the best I've found in 15 years of gardening. It's certainly evocative, but since I can smell like this by rolling in one of my flowerbeds, I won't be buying a bottle!
