Inspiration: The deepest and darkest of red scarlet drips and melts, saturating the velvety petals of a rose, swirling around a core that conceals unspoken desire.
Fragrance story: Passion that veers dangerously, Cruel Intentions, tempt me exposes floral rose absolute to a primal pitch, its thorns padded with powdery violet. Papyrus, gaiac, vetiver and bergamot essences lend a sexy quality–the sound of leather lashing on wood.
Key notes: Bergamot, Rose, Gaïac
Olfactive Family: Narcotics - From rose to tuberose, from orange blossom to gardenia… Kilian flowers are composed like a narcotic dependence.
Perfumer: Sidonie Lancesseur.
