Mystery Found Fragrance
While hunting for bottles on the beach last month I came across this tightly capped mysterious bottle filled with liquid. I opened it right then and there and smelled a faint floral fragrance amidst the brackish seawater. I tucked it in my bag and proceeded to scavenge and only opened it later when I was home and sorting through my finds. In the comfort of my home it smells more like dirty seawater than heavenly floral but still a faint trace of its original contents remains. The sediment on the bottom could be fragrant matter that separated from the alcohol once water was introduced. Or it could simply be debris from the ocean floor. The bottle has no markings and is such an industry standard design that it could be almost anything. Mystery indeed.
