“The cedar wood, patchouli, and oak moss together formulate the smell of an attic where erotic phone calls are made. There’s a dated floracy in the fragrance that aims to duplicate an 80’s feeling with the plastic dial-telephone and carpet rendering the environment of an arousal evoked by the unknown image of the person on the other end of the call.” - Lucas Sieuzac
