“This scent was inspired by the contrast of a hard sewing machine agains soft fabric. Piercing black pepper evokes the feeling of the cold, sharp metal; a vinyl accord represents the rubber; rose and raspberry are the delicate red silk being pushed through the sewing machine and the growing arousal of the designer as the needle pierces in and out the fabric. A hint of creamy musk lingers in the background, capturing the sensuality of the arousal.« — Christelle Laprade
