From ancient empire to contemporary people's life, Osmanthus is always a popular plant in gardens. The flowers are used to produce osmanthus-scented jam, tea, sweet cakes, dumplings, soups, liquor, candies, flavors, essences, perfumes, soap and even medicine. You don't need to know where Osmanthus is, but you can smell its fragrance. I like to look for these small flowers while walking, then pick and treasure some in my little scent bottle which is a pendant made of reticulation silver and enameling. My ideas come from mazes and copper mirrors of Han Dynasty. Tracing the fragrance is like to walk in the labyrinth. Treasure the sweet memory.
