With steam still rolling out, you step out of your bathtub. Towel wrapped around your naked body, you dive right into your crisp and laundered bedsheets. Naked, you snuggle in for an afternoon nap.

A collection of ingredients throughout religious history in both the East and the West; put together into one single concoction.

A satirical take on modern female perfumery with heavy use of gourmand, fruit, and floral accords, with a twist of lychee and pear notes and a touch of my favorite pink pepper.

Cigarettes, whiskey, and a salacious night of escapism. I imagine a setting sun, a spray of perfume, and a dance with the devil until the sun rises once more.
