The Scent of a Women by Shirley Maya Tan


She bathes in beauty

Like the blossoms of flowers

Her scent lingers

Like her enchanting smile.

Never close enough to touch

Just near enough to breathe in

Her intoxicating aroma

It fills men’s hearts with desire

And drive their minds mad

With longing.

A woman’s scent is delicate and sweet

Designed to lure and dazzle

Much like the loveliness

Of her lustrous figure and face.

No two women share the same fragrance

Each feminine scent is unique as it is exquisite

Much like their colourful personalities

When was the last time you got hit by such a whiff?
