    The Basenotes chap does sound beguiled
    Too bad the goats have to be wild
    Or one as a pet
    Would be a good get
    I imagine this has already been trialed?

    The scent of this terrible year
    Was of cabbage and rather stale beer
    But as the clock chimes twelve
    A friendly old elf
    Will spray you with Goodness & Cheer

    What's this now? Hold up, hold the phone:
    Some new year's cheer from Lyon?
    Douse yourself in Caleche
    Get some beer fresh
    And you can start the new year in the zone!

    YSL made a scent named Champagne
    But were soon forced to change that name
    Now I wear Yvresse
    In a cocktail dress
    Some say I'm not quite the same...

    A Basenotes member once did boast
    On being stuck on 69 posts
    A sexy position
    Is the tradition
    But don't try it whilst eating toast

    The new name is fine, and doubly,
    We're talking perfume, and not bubbly
    And the dress is no change
    So those comments are strange
    Although it might not look right when you're stubbly

    Interesting meta-analysis
    No need for post count dialysis!!
    It's the tip with the toast
    That'll help me the most
    For you, I fear posting paralysis (sad face)

    Posting paralysis be damned
    It's gotten way out of hand
    'Toast's out', they say?
    Hmm..I shout, 'No Way!'
    I'm a fan of yeast breads, darkly tanned.

    So now the rec has been cancelled out!
    I'm going to go into this thing full of doubt.
    I'll get bread for the toaster,
    And decide when it's closer.
    Or maybe a third vote will show me the route. (undecided emoji)

    Doubt not, my good friend Bevard
    The process is not very hard
    To carmalize bread
    In a toaster, it's said,
    Brings a smile as wide as a yard.

    Mr Toast (somewhat of a nutter)
    Sought a wife smelling just like butter
    What a great pair they'd be
    Over Darjeeling tea
    Just the thought set his heart aflutter

    Limerick rhyming for perfume:
    Mushroom, Khartoum, volume and bloom
    Brigadoon, baboon
    Volume and bassoon
    But beware, there isn't much room!

    A butter-soliflore is surprisingly rare
    Perhaps the demand just isn't quite there?
    If he were into vanilla
    He could fill a whole villa
    And there wouldn't a room left to spare

    A brief word today for my Gucci
    Yes-having to borrow to buy it was moochy
    But we're like peas and carrots
    Whenever I wear it
    Nice and scrumptious a la Stanley Tucci!

    What perfume colour do you choose?
    I'm put off by anything blue
    Amber seems quite right
    And green a delight
    But bright pink just gives me the blues!

    Once sitting with a perfume Svengali
    She doused me with Salvador Dali
    'Some say it is gothic
    But I'd say erotic...'
    Then pulled me towards the back alley

    OMG, Paco Rabanne La Nuit
    Don't invite her 'round for high tea
    A ouija board session
    Or voodoo procession
    Is much more her cup of tea

    A spritz, maybe two does suffice
    Puts my fragrance lust on the ice
    But I certainly say
    In a most humble way
    To bathe in your juice, is it nice?



    With scents named: 'Le Vetiver Bluff''
    Worse maybe there's : 'I Am Tough'
    Or: '...La Juicy Nice Stuff',
    'With Love-Hillary Duff''!
    'Truth or Dare'...haven't you had quite 'Enough'?

    To bathe in one's juice is obtuse
    More so if you smell of wild goose
    But a spritz on your bits
    From your feet to your tits
    With perfume will make you a Zeus

    'Black Opium Zebra Collector'
    Got past the Perfume Name Inspector
    And she lives with the shame
    For this god awful name
    But she mustn't let it affect her

    There once was a perfume bandit
    Whose heist went just as he planned it
    He swapped all girls' scents
    With those of the gents
    Now Jason loves smelling like Janet

    So are you happy then, or more melancholy?
    That your influencer is actually a Svengali?
    They can all be repressive,
    And her recs are agressive.
    I guess it depends how much you like a hot tamale.

    A bit harsh on bathers, "obtuse."
    There's joy when you set the juice loose.
    With a little overspray,
    It can last the whole day!
    On the morning train, just ride the caboose. (thumbs up emoji to indicate problem solved)

    "Away with that Flanker, you sog!"
    Cried m'lady, whilst petting her hog
    Though I"d made it with love
    Thought it fit like a glove
    Said she, " 'Tis wet hair on the dog!"

    The musk coming from the muskrat
    Does not smell, at all, of wild cat
    It smells of wet dog
    Coming home from the fog
    With an undertone of doormat

    "Sweet Jaysus!" cried Flynn, much in pain
    "Don't spritz on that damn stuff again!"
    " 'Twas on discount," , she offered
    "A scent by Joan Crawford:
    'Mommie Dearest's Toilet Water Of Spain' "

    'Sweet Jaysus!', the first celeb perfume
    Was created in A.D. 42
    Made from pure nard
    In someone's back yard
    The emperor had a bottle or two

    The rather tweedy Monsieur Rochas
    The epitome of warm class
    An elegant farmer
    In fresh pressed pyjamas
    With a bright and jovial laugh

    Another Rochas, it's Moustache
    Hesperidic blast from the past
    Twinkling lemons
    Sent from the heavens..
    And all that powder, whoa, what a blast!
