A terza rima poem on the proper use of fragrances to facilitate dating and courtship.
Like lavender and lovely, red roses,
they’re meant for your immaculate sweethearts
and their fine, little delicate noses;

not to damage the most sensitive parts
or overwhelm the olfactory senses,
bedaub with the finesse of the fine arts,

as love’s a game of great consequences.
Dates decide on the mere whiff of a scent,
so smell good or lead to major offenses.

Too much strong scent is wholly unpleasant;
a little hint on the neck and the wrist
is enough to smell attractively fragrant.

Don’t offend like a face that hits a fist:
if you heed these lines you will get the gist!
