“The cinematography inspired me to render a scenery, landscape and feeling of a couple isolated in a forest. A location where two people are restricted to love, yet fall in love. In the coldness; WIND, DAMP WOOD, LAKE and FOREST LEAVES they find WARMTH. In the danger and darkness; the ANIMAL and BLOODY undertones they find COMFORT and LIGHT. This is a fragrance that is ultimately HERBAL, GREEN, WET, DARK, ANIMAL and WOODY, and twisted with a bouquet of WILD FLOWERS to represent the society they left, the new one they found and will soon leave again.”
