By Kilian Playing With the Devil
"A fruity animalic fragrance built on a set of contrasts and oppositions to express the wink expressed in the name. In the opening, an overdose of fruity notes: Blood Orange, Blackcurrant buds, White Peach and Lychee, combined with hot spices, Black Pepper from Madagascar and Pimento Berries, bring an olfactory "forbidden fruit" signature.The heart is a woodsy accord: Cedar, Sandalwood, Patchouli, dressed by the femininity of the Rose of May and the more sensual femininity of the Jasmine Sambac from India.In the dry down, Cistus and Ambrarome were overdosed in a classic oriental accord: Tonka Bean, Benzoin, Vanilla, to bring out the animalic sensuality."

Beauty Trend - Point Blanc
White isn't always angelic. Take, for example, Alexander McQueen's 1999 fall fashion show, "The Overlook," which featured ivory fur and fake snow -- and was inspired by Stanley Kubrick's horror classic The Shining. Now, the palest hue is one again playing against type: At Alexander Wang's resort show, the models' milky-nude lips and haunting, blushless complexions were anything but innocent. To get in the spirit of the season, reach for icy eyeshadows, frosty shades for lips and nails, and a subversive scent. (By Kilian's unassuming white bottle contains a perfume called Playing With the Devil and comes in a snake-wrapped box.) It may only be November, but as they say in Game of Thrones, "Winter is coming."
