Etat Libre d'Orange - Rien

Sorrowful liturgical censer/bonfire/leather fragrance, akin to witnessing the arson of a Norwegian stave church by black metallers in corpse paint.

Rochas - Audace (1971/72-1978 version)

A bit like a Guy Bourdin photo gone horribly wrong - broken fluorescent light tubes, lacquered scarlet lips, tanned glistening thighs, neatly trimmed bush, bloodspattered high heels. Prussic acid chypre that fills me with a vague sense of dread.

Lacoste - Touch of Pink


Dsquared2 - SheWOOD


Robert Piguet - Fracas

Holding a tuberose in front of myself. Projecting something other than me, not me at all.


Whorish maneater.
Patchouli, smoke, and rosepetals stained and bruised.
