    Each of the following perfumers was sent a copy of this 1913 Ezra
    Pound poem:

    In a Station of the Metro

    The apparition of these faces in a crowd;
    Petals on a wet, black bough.

    Each perfumer then imagined how he or she would turn this poem into a
    perfume, what notes they might use, and what elements of the poem made
    the greatest impression on them as perfumers. The resulting
    contributions will be posted on Memory and Desire
    ( ) over the next two weeks, culminating in
    an extraordinarily special giveaway on March 31. Please read today's
    post for more details:

    I hope each of you will have a moment to stop by the site and see what
    these extraordinarily creative minds have graciously shared with us in
    response to Pound's beautiful, short poem.

    Warmest greetings to each,
    Heather Ettlinger

    Oh I remember that poem from my American Poets class at uni. I always thought that there was something very Japanese about it.
    I shall check it out.
