“This fragrance captures the arousing danger of a car crash - the leaking gasoline, luxurious leather seats, a hint of her sweat, and the smell of the trees and flowers in the wind passing in her memories as the car whirls around her out of control. Its all about seeking pleasure among chaos.” — Nathalie Benareau
