» Their are several elements and moments in the film Blow-up that resonated with me deeply and that prompted me to create an olfactive response. From repeating textures of wood in the photographers car and loft, antiques, chemicals in the dark room, dusty feathers, green leaves in the park and marijuana. However, the moment that resonated with me most and served as an inspiration for this fragrance is the scene with the oil painting. The oil painting becomes a metaphor reality vs fantasy. « — Mark Buxton
