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.



  1. if it smells as good as it sounds...

  2. Uh! Interesting line on a perfume bottle.

  3. Wow! Poetry in a perfume bottle!!!! I love it! ~Janine XO

  4. Poetry is all around us, but only a few of us ever see it. :)

  5. Love it- would love it more if it smelled good.

  6. I like it! I think it may have the desired impact on the one who whiffs it as you pass by and your scent lingers. You underestimate the power of it :), perhaps.

  7. Never mind the perfume- look at that bottle! Frabjous!

  8. Purpletastic and it does look sort of like an alien...
