“This fragrance captures the sexy anticipation of sneaking around to fulfill an erotic craving. Like the dirty secret one keeps from his/her lover, while sneaking out of bed with a laptop, the porn magazines hidden in the bathroom and vintage VHS tapes. This fragrance is dark, naughty, secretive and sexy.” — Maurice Roucel
