Cool fragrance


We Indians love our kitchen masalas and powders. These powders are typically eaten with hot, boiled or steamed rice and a dash of ghee (clarified butter). There is a whole range available to choose from – coriander powder, curry leaf powder, lentil powder and many other delicious flavours.

One of my friends recently went to India, and picked up a selection of these powders for me.

After she got back from India, I had the plastic bag picked up from her house.
It was a rather busy week, and I did not have the time to empty the contents, so I put away the plastic bag in my freezer.

My dear friend had bought me a gift ( a perfume bottle and a moisturizing cream), which she had put into the same plastic bag.

As I had not opened the bag at all, the perfume and cream were in my refrigerator for a good week, till I met my friend.

When I thanked her (for the powders), she asked me, “Did you like the smell?”

I was quite puzzled. Why would she ask me about the smell of masala powders ?

I told her that I had not opened the bag yet, and she left it at that.

A few days later, I opened the packet to empty the powders and found her gift. Everything made sense.

I called my friend and we had a good laugh!

  2. Oh yes, pretty funny and reminds me that I believe many incense stick scents derive from India, am I right? My sister and I used to particularly love nag champa.

    Sometimes it is an oops moment… πŸ™‚

    I got a book as a gift and left it in one of the zippered pockets of my travel bag and forgot about it. After a month the friend asked me if I liked the book… I was like which book?! I felt really bad. I found it, read it, and sent an elaborate thank you note. πŸ™‚

    I’m curious as to whether the freezing of the perfume and the cream affected them. I’m assume they were still ok?
