Is that maple syrup I smell?
No, there are only legumes here.
Are you sure it’s not caramel?
Only seeds from a pod, you hear?
That’s the magic of fenugreek,
A Mediterranean plant;
If increased lactation you seek,
Maybe it helps. Maybe it can’t.
It feels at home in the kitchen—
As a spice, it mimics curry.
From cow feed and folk medicine
It’s moved into perfumery.
I’m stumped. I haven’t smelled any marketed perfumes that contain fenugreek that I remember. From my previous experience playing with it in a blend, I know it’s a strong and dominant note. Do you know and love any perfumes featuring fenugreek?
