“The vibrant fruitiness on top conveys the energy and excitement one gets from smelling alone. The heart of the fragrance gets a little dark, representing the moment when the sense of smell is lost, while the strong, sweet and animalic dry down symbolizes a sexual arousal when the sense of smell is finally regained” - David Apel
