Last week Tom and I drove through Laurel Canyon, a road that goes through the hills, connecting Studio City to West Hollywood. Night had just fallen, we had the windows down and driving into the hills a powerful floral scent embraced us. The fragrance wrapped its arms around him and I and all we kept saying was, "what is that smell?"
New to LA, we learned this pungent flower blooms all over LA starting in February and as a result the place smells fantastic. Not what you would expect amidst the car culture here.
