Fragrance Poetry inspired by Aqua Divina from Bulgari.
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?).
On their website, Bulgari describes this fragrance as one of insight and sophistication – attributing to it the name “Gyan” – as well as the use of the Blue Sapphire, representing the same. However, When I smell patchouli, the overwhelming affect I get is one of mysterious attraction. I decided to tie two themes together – but with a twist – writing a poem of mysterious romance that – although being created by God (for our enjoyment!) – can also never be truly understood.
Proverbs 30 [NLT]: “There are three things that amaze me— no, four things that I don’t understand: how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman.”
