Description Love Exposure is inspired by the 2008 Japanese film of the same name directed by Sion Sono. The film focuses on a young man raised as a strict Roman Catholic who begins taking upskirt photos. Perfumer Mark Buxton was inspired by the film's themes of love, lust, violence, sex and religion. These elements coalesce into a woody, musky floral fragrance with a unique character. The fragrance opens with a delicate magnolia accord, touched by the faintest hint of ylang-ylang and brightened by verdant neroli and cassis. It isn't long before this seemingly clean floral fragrance is joined by animalic notes of costus root, indolic jasmine, cumin and ambergris, which add depth and character. Violence is represented by an accord of bucchu, bay and metallic notes, which work together to produce a blood accord. Base notes of musk, vanilla and sandalwood create the illusion of hot, wet skin and a touch of amber an incense symbolize the recurring theme of religion.
