Guido Reni, 1575-1642 Eau d'Italie-Paestum Rose
Somewhat dry, this scent echos its namesake in Italy.
I imagine it to be sunny, warm and mellow,
although I have never been;
cool in the dusty shadows.
Like a sumptuous tapestry, the perfume unfolds.
The scent of the rose is slowly revealed
from the depths of many colors.
Pepper and coriander, peony and currant buds;
flowers and spices amuse and bewilder.
Traveling through time with this delightful elixir.
