    Journey - Don't Stop Believing

    A singer in a smokey room
    A smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on and on and on

    Somethin' Stupid by C. Carson Parks

    "The time is right
    Your perfume fills my head
    The stars get red
    And oh the night's so blue

    And then I go and spoil it all
    By saying something stupid
    Like I love you..."
    "He was some kind of a man... What does it matter what you say about people?"

    I so wish these song writers were into fragrances like we are--I'd like to know which perfumes they're finding powerful enough to mention. Enough of this generalized "perfume"-yakkity yak, all song writers out there, let's follow the brand name thinking like the lines about Samsara and Fahrenheit!

    No particular perfume mentioned, but the whole atmosphere of one of the most hautingly beautiful songs, ever, is set up by scent.

    The Lamia -

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near,
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier.
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange.
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye.


    Inside, a long rose-water pool is shrouded by fine mist.
    Stepping in the moist silence, with a warm breeze hes gently kissed.

    Thinking he is quite alone,
    He enters the room, as if it were his own,
    But ripples on the sweet pink water
    Reveal some company unthought of-

    Rael stands astonished doubting his sight,
    Struck by beauty, gripped in fright;
    Three vermilion snakes of female face,
    The smallest motion, filled with grace.
    Muted melodies fill the echoing hall,
    But there is no sign of warning in the sirens call:
    Rael welcome, we are the Lamia of the pool.
    We have been waiting for our waters to bring you cool.

    Putting fear beside him, he trusts in beauty blind,
    He slips into the nectar, leaving his shredded clothes behind.
    With their tongues, they test, taste and judge all that is mine.
    They move in a series of caresses
    That glide up and down my spine.

    As they nibble the fruit of my flesh, I feel no pain,
    Only a magic that a name would stain.
    With the first drop of my blood in their veins
    Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains.
    The fairest cries, We all have loved you Rael.

    Each empty snakelike body floats,
    Silent sorrow in empty boats.
    A sickly sourness fills the room,
    The bitter harvest of a dying bloom.
    Looking for motion I know I will not find,
    I stroke the curls now turning pale, in which Id lain entwined
    O Lamia, your flesh that remains I will take as my food
    It is the scent of garlic that lingers on my choclate fingers.


    Looking behind me, the water turns icy blue,
    The lights are dimmed and once again the stage is set for you.

    It doesnt mention a specific fragrance but the first verse of Lupe Fiasco's "I Gotcha" could be a Basenoter's anthem.

    They call me Lupe I be a new day
    They wanna smell like me they want my bouquet
    But they can't they accented like the UK
    Turnin' Uday Lupe to Pepe L'peu spray
    flagrantly fragrant and they cant escape it
    my perfume persued them everywhere that they went
    You dont wanna loan, leave my cologne alone
    It's a little to strong for you, let me put it on
    Trust me, I say this justly
    I went from musty to musky and y'all cant mush me
    I warn y'all cornballs I hush puppies
    The swans in the pond called my duck ugly
    But now they hug me because its lovely
    They love the aroma of, aroma of the world
    Got the shakers, and the skaters, and the players and the girls
    Keep the fakers and the flakers and the haters in a twirl

    "Find the River" by R.E.M. is one of my favorites off the "Automatic for the People" album.

    Hey now, little speedyhead,
    The read on the speedmeter says
    You have to go to task in the city
    Where people drown and people serve.
    Don't be shy. Your just deserve
    Is only just light years to go.

    Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
    Ocean storm, bayberry moon.

    I have got to leave to find my way.
    Watch the road and memorize
    This life that pass before my eyes.
    Nothing is going my way.

    The ocean is the river's goal,
    A need to leave the water knows
    We're closer now than light years to go.

    I have got to find the river,
    Bergamot and vetiver
    Run through my head and fall away.

    Leave the road and memorize
    This life that pass before my eyes.
    Nothing is going my way.

    There's no one left to take the lead,
    But I tell you and you can see
    We're closer now than light years to go.
    Pick up here and chase the ride.
    The river empties to the tide.
    Fall into the ocean.

    The river to the ocean goes,
    A fortune for the undertow.
    None of this is going my way.
    There is nothing left to throw
    Of Ginger, lemon, indigo,
    Coriander stem and rose of hay.

    Strength and courage overrides
    The privileged and weary eyes
    River poet search naivete.
    Pick up here and chase the ride.
    The river empties to the tide.
    All of this is coming your way.
