» The woody earthiness of the fragrance was inspired by an image of a woman sitting on the wooden bench naked, her fingers are in the soil, creating bridge for insects to begin crawling onto her skin. There is also a unique, scratchy note in the fragrance that gives the sensation of the ants beginning to crawl and amass all over her naked body. « — Evelyn Boulanger
