Ode De Parfum

Well not quite an "ode" (it's just that title amused me), but poetic none the less.

I found a tiny little leaflet inside the gorgeous Alien perfume which my husband brought me back from his latest travels. It delighted me enough, with my new poetic outlook on life, to share it with you all.

Firstly there is the tagline for this range of perfume which goes:

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet - a good motto for life perhaps?

Anyway the leaflet reads:

"A woman from elsewhere, radiant and hypnotic: mysterious and yet so close to us...
Her energy has crystallised into a magnetic stone revealing hope,
A luminous sensuality born of the unique marriage between an imaginary amber with its legendary perfume and a solar flower, Jasmine Sambac."

Sounds romantic and ethereal, let's see if it'll make me radiant and hypnotic... I suspect not.

Poems on tour

Those of you with eagle eyes might have spotted a link in my bloglist to a poetry site, which has just posted a new poem for me.

I'll not post here because, well, I've posted it there.

But feel free to browse... warning it's a bit miserable!
