Percival by Parfums de Marly is Fragrance Poetry.

Poetry inspired by the perfume Percival from Parfums de Marly.

writing fragrance poetry perfume life love percival parfums de marly

Are you just a tale Wrapped up in legend?
A knight riding in, saving the dying?
Or how a Phoenix doesn’t have an end,
But ascends translucent, form-defying?

Stop me from descending in endless deep.
Life has led me in dark, unchaperoned.
I count the days that my lonely soul weeps.
All before I noticed I was alone.

Then, all of the sudden, I breathed you in.
You struck my branches with your rays of sun.
You punched my mind to an awakening,
Like an orange tree waiting for fruit to come.

Still, I know the sun won’t shine every day.
When sunset arrives, I still call your name.
