The heat between their bodies was equivocal to the humidity of the rainforest.

A stolen moment dancing outside the confines of the law, she strode with grace. He strides with pride. She cared so little for the brief case carrying, credit card loving, whiskey drinking fool she felt forced to marry under societies head mistress’s hand. She fell into her lover’s arms. Line osmosis, she drew each molecule of his Nubian perspiration into her. The hotel balcony was deserted, but curtains twitched. She would never leave Rio de Janeiro after that evening.

This scent builds in with harmonious base accord grounded in Obsidian leather, Rainforest Soils and Guaiac Wood. Tropical flower fallen like road kill adding an unusual sweet rot. This scent moves up into the heart notes : night jasmine muted by the breeze. Then sweet stained rings on the hotel tables from discarded Caipirinha glasses, lime carcus and lipstick napkins. Sexual portrait in forest green and black with animalic eyes watching intently.
