Fragrance Poetry inspired by Cuir Gardenia from Aftelier.
You’re a fauna among flowers.
Seldom to settle down.
Both wondrous and wild.
Making men mad and madly in love.
At times, I plunge into your petals.
Soft, satin and smooth.
You’re a Garden of Gardenia.
And I’m inebriated in nectar.
But your dichotomy is dramatic.
You’re not frail and feeble foliage.
Pull your Petals and you will Prick.
Even, arguably, animalic.
To end, your allure is honored.
Your charm, cherished.
Your delicacies are delightful.
And your ferociousness, feared.
