Perfume, scent, aroma, smell, fragrance
call it what you will
If subtle and sensuous my nose twitches
and my brain centre is on sniff alert

If slightly illusive I’m compelled to investigate
but if strong or pungent the sneezes start
offended by the invasion of my senses
my sinuses over react and I sneeze it back

What scent arouses you?
The aroma of fresh brewed coffee
or the bakery as the trays come out
the fresh sea air clears my mind

or the bush fragrance right after rainfall
a freshly bathed baby
a certain incense, not too sweet
or a well cooked curry, what a treat

Daily Prompt:  Perfume
