Fragrance Poetry inspired by Aqua Divina from Bulgari.
An Aqua Divina swept me away. . . She was soft, salty with a splash of spice. I’m not sure sure how I fell for her this way, The one just sharp enough to still be nice.

She’s soft. Soft but salty Like the unexpected mouth full of sea water While swimming at the beach. She’s pungent, Like the fruit on the counter That’s so ripe, its scent fills the house. She has a ginger-like snap: You’re not sure if she’s being spicy or not. And she’s just a touch of white florals, Like a girl who just wants to act Just A “bit” like a lady (but not too much). Yes, Her sweetness is there, It just takes a minute to shine through.
I don’t know how I fell for her, But she’s swept me off-to-sea and back Like an aqua divina. And I now lay stranded, Left to basque in her sun (Or to dry-out and wither?).
