Title
Who was Melusine?
For some, she is a character from ancient legends – a sorceress whose body from the waist down was a snake or dragon’s tail. For me, raised in Poland, she is the heroine of a song about an unhappy, scorned love from the cult children’s movie “Travels of Mr. Kleks”.

When I first heard the song about Melusine, I was literally a few years old. I loved it – I often stood in front of the mirror and sang it at full volume to a deodorant pretending to be a microphone. Although I didn’t fully grasp its meaning, I felt incredible emotions and “shivers” all over my body.

Years later, I imagine Melusine as a mermaid who once in a while leaves her underwater kingdom. Thanks to magic, she gains a fully human form for a few hours and goes out on land. Probably she does this during a full moon.What drives her? The inaccessible scents of spruce, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper in the deep? She might have known them when she witnessed the disaster of a merchant ship that lost its cargo in a storm.
But the smell is too little to expose to danger or ridicule. Unless… it is inextricably linked to a strong feeling.
