Although it’s said ‘The thought’s what counts’
It only counts for small amounts.
A gift, however good th’intent
Is not received, unless it’s sent.
The scent I send my lady friends
Is often sent to make amends.
Unless I wish to give offence
It’s priced in dollars, not in cents.
The odour’s most expensive sounds?
‘Eau de Cologne’ – it costs me pounds.
They all are rare and most intense
I wouldn’t call them common scents.
