P is for Petra
Paying homage to one of my favorite artisanal perfumers, Meredith Smith of Sweet Anthem Perfumes, and Petra, my favorite out of her many gorgeous creations. I still have a tiny bit of this (no longer available) perfume left, and I wear it in special occasions. Like today. While I was drawing this.
When I smell Petra, I am transported back to my fourteen year old self, lying on the floor listening to sad pop songs, filled with an inchoate longing, while tendrils of cherry incense smoke slowly permeate my room.
