I think I read once that floral scents, such as lavender and rose, were once considered masculine or at least neuter and were quite popular in men's cologne. That said I like your use of scent to illuminate the subtle and nuanced relationship between the two boys.

On an unrelated and somewhat nitpicky note, I noticed that you said that Jules was reading a Latin translation of Plato. Wouldn't it he be reading it in the original Greek? Schools in that time period would probably have taught it along with Latin as part of their obsessive focus on classical languages and literature.
