What does your garden office smell like?

An unusual question but one that was posed to shedworking author Joanne Harris by Nathalie Atkinson at who asked the novelist if she ever deliberately scented the room to suit what she was writing. Here's her reply:
"My shed has lots of strong ambient smells anyway. Because the inside is made of green oak it smells very strongly of wood and I sometimes burn things in there like sage and candles and things,” she said. When she wants to remind herself more explicitly, “I’ve got so many boxes of powders and cedar wood and sandalwood! And I have some suppliers of incenses that send them over from North Africa, which are nicer than the ones you just buy in hippie shops, which all end up smelling more or less the same."
