Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    A person without Character is like a beautiful flower with no fragrance, IMHO. Beauty, knowledge and wealth become worthless in the absence of Character. Life loses its meaning forever, once the Character is lost or compromised.....just like a beautiful flower that has no fragrance.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    You're always known by the company you keep" - taught my parents in my childhood. As I grew up, I realized that being in the company of nice people is like being in a fragrance mart. Whether you buy any fragrance or not, you'll always come out refreshed and smelling absolutely fabulous. So my parents were right; it's always nice to be with nice people.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The most favorite perfume, for gentlemen and ladies alike, has been the "New Car Perfume" by far. Interestingly this new-car-like-smell is nothing but the floating volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your new car, which aren't good at all for either the humans or the environment. I often think that the best fragrance must be Petrichor, the exquisite earthy smell that often permeates in the air, right after the first intimate union of fresh and purest rain drops with hot and awaiting thirsty ground. No fragrance can ever match the attractive and seductive scent of Petrichor, in my view.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After the extended period of heat and dry weather, comes the first rain shower of the season creating an exquisite eloquent fragrance in the air - an earthy sweet smell that permeates and floats all around us, refreshing and rejuvenating our lives. I love that powerful seductive scent - emanating from the long awaited sensual union of soft and gentle rain drops with dry and thirsty waiting ground, instantaneously instigating an intense intimacy in the air. This elegant enchanting fragrance is called "Petrichor"; a composite word from Greek language, where "Petra" means ‘the stone’, and "Ichor" means 'the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods' per Greek Mythology. In my view, Petrichor is the most elegant and divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power to us. If my life were a perfume, I would surely like her to smell like Petrichor, that exquisite earthy fragrance after the first rain.
