Divine Fragrances

"If one asks how it is such divine fragrances came to be, the answer is that mother earth has adopted the scent of Sri Krsna’s body at the time of His bath. When mother Yasoda removes His cloth, allowing it to fall to the ground, the assimilated scent of His limbs, which resembles a mixture of sandalwood pulp, camphor, musk and aguru, is immediately plundered by Prthvi devi, and then distributed to all her associate like the trees, bushes and flowers, who then transmit them to their offspring, the flowers. Each flower, according to its qualification, will receive some portion of this aroma which will then be known as its own bouquet."
Venu Gita by Sivarama Swami
