I grabbed hold of him and could smell the sweet scent of..
This is for a story I am writing as my narrative so please can someone help me. :)
I guess it depends on the context you want it to be in. You could go for something literal, like aftershave or a breath mint. Or you could go for something literal but a bit more dramatic, for example "I grabbed hold of him and could smell the sweet scent of perspiration that exuded from him". I know that sounds a bit odd, but it depends on the character you're writing as. Also, you could try a metaphor - "I grabbed hold of him and could smell the sweet scent of the life that I'd lived - the life now hanging in the balance." Finally, people often refer to "the sweet smell of success" - you could work that in and play around with it a bit.
Ths story sounds interesting. Can you upload it when its done? x
