LIFE IS A PERFUME AD
And desire is it scent. Nowhere to be seen. Instantly filling the room. Full of want. To be someone or be with. We buy objects, to make our stories real, to become richer as we spend.
We look for oysters in far corners. We despise its salty taste, until we realise, this must be the taste of freedom. Oceans ahead.
My name is Stefan M. Gerard. You don't quite know what it is I sell, but I can tell your are buying. That fiery sensation you feel in your upper chest? That, right there, is my trade.
I sell Desire.
