Embers and Musk (Aftelier) | Perfume Poetry

Poetry inspired by the perfume Embers and Musk from Aftelier.

In the aftermath
The red embers of affection
That once burned so strong.

But dig down, search deep
Love is so softly hidden
Blooming like the sun.

Fires burn strongly
And yet hearts are delicate
Your heart is delicate.

Scented with smoulder
Evidence of the fallout
Loves still blooming underneath.

Love grows strong like a pine
Passion fueled attraction
Two deer in the woods.

But dig down, search deep
Love is so softly hidden
Blooming like the sun.

  1. Pine Tar with added honey, my compliment because it is the perfect remedy for the cough and the flu and untoward ailments for those chilly days and colder nights. If i recall it also has a liquorice flavour which gives it very pleasant flavour. Ok im completely off topic….we talking fragrance

    Pine and Tar, honey aside, but musks, who can refuse such a deeply felt love.
    Yuzu and apple, sour, still fragrant, would do well in a great bake, though unusual, to be appreciated.

      1. It’s a brand here called Stearns , a cough syrup that’s been around here for as long as i can remember. The notes of the fragrance jolted my memory, this is why i slipped it into my note, for interest sake. There is also a Grays Pine Tar and Honey. Available off the shelf, I don’t think there was a time that a household would be without it during the cold winter months.

      2. I also learned along the way that peppermint is a hybrid mint, a cross between watermint and spearmint. There was a time that spearmint was very popular and then i never heard of it again.

      3. Great, there was a time when folk confused the two – spearmint and peppermint – even considering them the same, but there is a difference. I remember i like the spearmint candy.

    I love this line. Sometimes the pain we cause each other lingers despite moving on after a fight, but so does the bonds of love remain even during any argument. Your poem is beautiful, Delicate, deep and hits it’s mark. πŸ’–β€οΈ.
