    Default Let's get creative - a poetic game.

    Hi everyone, I thought it was time for a new game.
    I suggest you all try to write a HAIKU poem (that's 5 syllables followed by 7
    followed by 5) about a scent you know, without actually mentioning its name.
    The next person has to guess what the scent is and write their own perfume haiku.
    If people miss-guess it doesn't really matter, althought the original " poet " can say whether
    its been guessed correctly or not.

    I'll start you off with an easy one:-

    Aldehydic rose
    Blue-black stripy canister
    South Bank of the Seine.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
