All you meant to me
was a way to get the ladies
not knowing in my youth just how much you were my matey.
To smell you made me gag
when I was a lad
you were nothing more to me than a passing fad.
1 spray was not enough
to catch a lady’s love
and now i know that 5 sprays was simply way too much.
I stopped wearing you for a while
but it didn’t make me smile
for my early years were lacking a certain style.
I found a fragrance that I liked
you were manly and just right
you were more than just a fragrance for the night.
But I still failed to see your worth
so I gave you a wide berth
and avoided you as a dieter fearing chocolate to his girth.
One Christmas day it happened
several gifts had made me gladdened
the sight and smell I had only ever imagined.
Not only one or two but three
fragrances that delighted me
they were bottles of Eau de Toilette, far from the fragrances of Brie.
I once heard it said by a woman
the mark of a fully dressed true man
was the fragrance from his cologne which made him grand.
Now that I am older,
wiser and much bolder
I simply do not feel quite dressed without your fragrance that makes me smoulder.
So here’s to you and here’s to us
from a time I wasn’t fussed
I now know that to be fully dressed you simply are a must.
