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.

Oud Luban (Aftelier) | Perfume Poetry

Poetry Inspired by the Perfume Oud Luban from Aftelier.

I combed the earth
To find a cure for my wounds
[I am the broken hearted-man].
I roamed past
The lign aloes [planted by God],
And the giant cedars
Reaching to heaven.
Nothing could ease my pain;
Neither khus oil,
Nor the fruit of the goodly tree
Could return my joy.
I prayed for a sign. . .
. . .for a miracle. . .
But I came to the Boswella tree
and swung my axe in faith,
As incense swings through the air
[while smoke ascends like a prayer].
And where blade met bark,
From there’s came the healing milk,
And so the mending
Of a broken heart.

So Calmly
Underneath my radar. . .
Time to strike?

Heart Blossoms
Dark green with red patches. . .
Well disguised.

Mellow smoke
Slowly burning passions. . .
Simmering.

Thick Venom
In darkened aloeswood. . .
Such is love.
