    Default a fragrance addict's epitaph

    i don't mean to be grossly morbid, but i was thinking a lot last night about addiction, which lead to thoughts about relationships, loneliness, death, and dying (and other such depressing topics). out of this "contemplation", i got to thinking about what a trip it would be to come up with my epitaph. the discussion around here recently has been about addiction and obsession with fragrances (scents, perfumes, what have you), so i thought it might be fun to try to come up with the best fragrance addict's epitaph.

    here's a go:

    "he was rough bastard, and a lying, cheating twit, but he always smelled nice."

    not great, i know, but it's a start. so, let's have a go at this, shall we?

    (by the way, i'm hoping basenotes member Quarry will partake. i just love her wit, and i know she'd come up with some great ones.)

    He was ferried across the river by Charon
    With nothing from the upper-world but a bottle of Caron.

    Saint Laurent’s child lies in this grave,
    A just man fair to every Creed.
    His scents remain, his body fades,
    A hundred fragrant plants to feed.
