GLEE in 'GLICINE'

glicine, or wisteria in english, is everywhere right now. climbing on walls, covering verandas and filling the air with its divine perfume. it is an incredible challenge to try and describe the scent of wisteria. to me it is sweet and bitter, citrus and honey, cool and penetrating.......curious fact: it belongs to the pea family!

i love it too! there's nothing quite as dramatic and romantic as a veranda covered in drippy wisteria.
