I fell into a girl named Vanilla
As I tripped into a dream late last night.
She was pink, petite and perfectly sweet.
Down-to-earth with a delicate, soft light.

Have you lolled, half-awoken, in your bed
Smelling cookies baking in the morning?
An aroma gentley flirting with you,
With such anticipated desiring. . .

This is how Vanilla stirs me from sleep:
Like a silky incense raising a prayer:
If this girl that I dreamed of could be mine.
But when I open my eyes, she’s not there.

Girls like Vanilla, they never last long.
Once you want her more, she’s already gone.

Black Orient (Bulgari) | Fragrance Poetry

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Black Orient from Bulgari.

Like leather laced with lava-lake,
I bit into the bitter bud.
It yanked my youth of yesterday
To Make a man from mud.

Riddled with resins and rum,
I swallowed the sachet of spice.
Once dredged and drained, was done,
Lifting this leper to life.

By fire, free-men are formed:
Chasten a cherished child.
Through tears and terrors, he’s torn.
But after smoke and smolder. . . he’ll smile.

I just wanted to say I had a lot of fun writing this one. I like to play around with difference styles of poetry, including free-form. But I threw a bunch of techniques in this one – rhyme, rhythm, alliteration and symbolism. A nice contrast from the one I wrote before this – “Wood Essence” – which was barely written as poetry. But hey, why not change things up?

Unfortunately, Black Orient from Bulgari was a limited run and now discontinued. So, my poem may be the only way you can ever experience it. Read Secret Garden from Aftelier. © 2020, except where noted otherwise. All rights reserved.

Don’t let me fall in love tomorrow;
I’m not prepared for another heartbreak. . .

You’re so uncomplicated – innocent.
My reputation’s of one rotations.
I love to go out strawberry picking
But it leads to sticky situations.

Please don’t wear that sweet perfume that I love –
Those little glasses and pink, pink lipstick.
Please conceal those baby-blue iris eyes.
If hearts collide, then what will happen next?

Please don’t let me fall in love tomorrow;
I’m not prepared to break your heart again.
