Full Incense (Montale) | Fragrance Poetry

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Full Incense from Montale.

Swaying incense imitates pendulums.
The back-and-forth, swaying like memories.
Priceless moments, suddenly expired.
It leaves a lot left to be desired.

Your classic aftershave signature scent.
The varnish on the pews. . cedar ceilings.
Soft, grey skies. Long-lost relatives’ faces.
How stalled thoughts drift to new and old places.

I slide down to the brown kneeling cushion.
Life keeps ticking like the incense swinging.
Familiarity often brings peace.
But I’m saying “Goodbye” down on my knees.

Here, at a funeral, hearts convalesce.
Lost in thought by the scent of “Full Incense.”

Complimentary –
The Pleasant and Unpleasant,
Catch a Memory.

There’s so much to say about this fragrance, yet so little I can say. . .A mix of leather and fecal aromas. . . Translated “Oud Leather of Arabia. . .” Even though it may not be a pleasant smell by itself, like the smell of a camel, it can bring you back mentally to happy times – perhaps on a farm, or on a trip where you got to travel to an exotic place (exotic to those like myself in the USA) where you were surrounded with camels.
