An intemperate intoxication of galbanum, laudanum accord, tonka bean, vetivert root and narcotic wormwood swooning into an euphoric delirium of opium poppy, poet's jasmine, and french lavender.
"Opium expands without boundaries, extends the limitless, depths of time, deepens voluptuous delight, fills the soul beyond its capacities, with the pleasures of shadow and of darkness. Nothing equals the poison that flows from your eyes, your green eyes, lakes where, my soul trembles in a mirror… and my dreams flock to quench their thirst in the bitter stream. None of that equals the terrible wonder of your saliva’s venom, that plunges my remorseless soul into oblivion, a vertigo rolling towards the shores of doom!" --- 'Le Poison' by Charles Baudelaire (translated)
