Day 7: NaPoWriMo 2021

The Anatomy of Scent

Eau de Evening in Paris.
That was the perfume
my mother’d wear.
Her best dress perfume.

I can’t recall its scent
but it’s lingering in me
with nursery rhymes
and bedtime stories.

Can a scent turn and turn
back childhood’s pages?

  1. I have never heard of the scent that sent you. Mrs H used to wear one called Charlie back in the day. She wears things a bit more sophisticated (I think that word means pricey) these days.😂

    • My little sister, then a toddler, took a liking to the scent, and drink the whole bottle. Turned her pee purple. You can still buy a Evening in Paris in France. 100ml costs a couple hundred dollars. 😳
