“Spite Eau de Parfum takes place in an imagined garden, a hyperreal timespace where a group of spiteful spirits have gathered for the day. They meet below a lattice dripping with molle jasmine vines, interlaced and connected like synapses, as connected as these congregants are to each other.

EP 6: Unearthing The Essence

Here we have a fragrance of mystery, one for the ages in fact. From England it's Centauri's Dendera (the nose: Peter Carter). You just might find yourself in an old chapel in a desolate town.
