The Perfume River flows through the heart of Hu, imperial capital of Vietnam. Long ago when the orchards above the river were in bloom, the petals from the flowers would fall into the river and float down through the city. So abundant were the flowers that the river gave off the scent of perfume. In the Perfume River series, I imagine what this might have looked like flowers floating by the gilded city in the late afternoon sun along with the leaves and grasses that float by today.
