Paris. She Met Him in Secret.


"I was inspired to create the souvenir of a French kiss – a bit forbidden, always romantic.  A mysterious dark iris accord captures the feeling of her perfect black dress and the shadows along the Paris streets. The scent of her cherished lipstick, tucked in a luxurious clutch – sensuous, powdery, leathery – is left on his skin, the memento of a stolen moment.”
