“A film carried by Jazz music; I like this ambiance. The flowers play a strong role (water lily) the film which starts gay and luminous and becomes very dark! The fragrance is based on dark woody notes with a lot of incense, which represents the Jazz music for me. There is a short passage where you smell the light. The chamomile and red pepper give rhythm and movement to the accord.”
