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.”

Is it blue, is it bleu, or is it blurred?
Certain things make me feel sad and centered.
. . .mais la vie est belle. . .

I stand tall, imitate the masculine,
just to discover incitement run thin.
. . .mais la vie est belle. . .

Debating with feelings leaves me unsure.
Like I’m stripped down by hot soapy water.
. . .mais la vie est belle. . .

I can only fight emotions so far.
My heart’s been crushed by “L’Invasion Barbare.”

. . .mais la vie est belle. . .

Recipe of a Man (Brioni) | Fragrance Poetry

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Brioni for Men.

Old, dated notes sometimes hide a secret.
I found this stuffed in my father’s suit-coat.
A recipe, if you will, on leaflet.

‘To begin, add a light touch of citrus.
Every man should uplift his family.
Next, mix in some mellow, floral bouquets,
To know when to be soft and satiny.
And last, most important, hard wood resin.
You’re the foundation: Support naturally.’

The final tip to this scribbled tidbit:
‘Don’t assume outfits will make you a man.
But it’s the real man that makes the outfit.’
