perfume riddle IV

800px-Franz_von_Stuck_Sphinx

Welcome to the fourth installment of my new feature here on Hortus Conclusus, in which a perfume bottle sings a little riddle, and it’s up to you to guess which bottle of perfume is riddling. Hark! The bottle speaks:

Although I delight in barroom raunch,

I’m not recommended to those with a paunch.

You must be quite lean,

and perhaps somewhat mean,

to wear me; I pack quite a smokey, dark punch.

That is the problem, and also the solution,

but also, my white flowers suffer no dilution!

They swim side by side

with the ciggies so snide,

I’m retro-ironic-- t’was my author’s intention.

Who am I?
