Why shouldn’t Eve have the situation in hand? She has put herself at risk. And she has no problem with that. The serpent thinks it can wrap itself around her. Wrong: she’s the one who’ll control the embrace. This is how the perfumes in this venomous collection work – Playing With The Devil, Good Girl Gone Bad – with their sensual, insistent intermingling; an animality sweetened by Arabian jasmine, Opoponax resinoid. Fruity but not mawkish, with the tang of spicy and woody notes. A sort of irresistible, narcotic, disinhibited stupor. An almost palpable evocation, a tactile emotion. These sillages run through centuries as swiftly as sin.
