Exquisitely beautiful and deliciously sticky by 

“Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.” ― Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

“She was indeed a girl of exquisite beauty. She was one of those languid women made of dark honey smooth and sweet and terribly sticky.”
― Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

  • Loved to create it. But as you mentioned was merely a study. Nowadays I am quite dissatisfied with the works I create, like the new one I did yesterday. But there are still people who seem to like it very much. Thanks for your visit! Greetings from Holland
