Sweet Syringa

Leave a comment

There’s one fragrance that captures Oslo on an early Summer’s day, it’s the Syringa vulgaris (or Lilac bush). Its heady sweet aroma fills air.

They seem to be ubiquitous to gardens here. You can find lots of dark pink or cream flowered varieties. They are just beginning to flower now and will have begun to fade by the time of the summer equinox, so now is a perfect time to enjoy their intense perfume against the backdrop of a wonderfully long summer’s evening in the city.
