perfume riddle 3

440px-IngresOdipusAndSphinx Welcome to another installment in my new feature here on Hortus Conclusus, in which a perfume bottle sings a little riddle, and it’s up to you, dear readers, to guess which bottle of perfume is riddling. Which of you will be the first to guess this one, I wonder:

There once was a girl from the boonies

whose antics were often quite loony.

and then she made me

so others could see

taste as childish as the Goonies’

A perfume she made with vanilla

and sugar—it was somewhat Godzilla.

By that I mean hairy;

I’m so sweet it’s scary,

SO if I’m a dream, I’m a killah.

For reverie is what I’m named after,

but you may receive this with laughter,

for I come in a bag

with a confederate flag

and sequins that look even dafter.

The girl who named me is not named Candy

Or Cindy or Jessie or Mandy

but she became famous,

then married an anus

have you guessed my name? it’s : _______!
