Oliver Clock has everything arranged just so. A steady job running the family funeral parlour. A fridge stocked with ready meals. A drawer full of colour-coded socks. A plan (of sorts) to stay trim enough for a standard-sized coffin. And in florist Marie, he’s even found the love of his life—not that she’s aware of it.
When a terrible tragedy takes Marie out of his life but leaves him with her private journal, he discovers too late that she secretly loved him back. Faced now with an empty love life, a family funeral business in trouble, a fast-approaching fortieth birthday and a notebook of resolutions he’s never achieved, Oliver resolves to open himself up to love—and all the mess that comes along with it.
One of the people Oliver (he runs a funeral home) meets is a woman who makes memorial candles for the family and friends of the deceased. She combines various scents that each of us possess as our own unique smell. What would your candle smell like - in other words, what smells or scents do you think people associate with you? (TBG said for me, it would be onions, zin wine and Opium (the scent. for him, it would be Colgate toothpaste, Royal Lyme (aftershave) and chocolate).
What scents do you associate with other people whom are/were close to you?
Or is this all too morbid to even think about?
