Stench of Betrayal

     Her fake perfume smelled of cheap musk,
             tobacco and passion flowers,
    the stench of betrayal lingered long
                after she had shiftily backpedaled  

Musk is a class of aromatic substances commonly used as base notes in perfumery. They include glandular secretions from animals such as the musk deer, numerous plants emitting similar fragrances, and artificial substances with similar odors.    Ewwww.....who knew?  No wonder. 

Wikipedia of course.
