A protest perfume to narrate dystopia.

An unsettling but compelling perfume with sharp green hits of galbanum joined by warm and woody sandalwood. This earthy blend keeps you on your toes, aware of your surroundings and the sillage of labdanum you leave behind.

You’ll love this if you like:
- Earthy fragrances that develop throughout the day.
- Devil’s Nightcap perfume.
- Keeping people on their toes.

Of all the Volume 2 perfumes, The Bug is easily my favourite. I was first drawn to it by the labelling alone - I anticipated a dusty, chemical scent, that evoked memories of the first part (my favourite part) of Orwell's 1984. And that is exactly what I got. I opened the bottle to a rich and dizzying smell that was both nostalgic and dystopian. It was like the scent of the past's vision of the future. My imagination conjured up a mild burning sensation as I put it on my skin. It felt dangerous, yet empowering and compulsive.

This is one of my favorite fragrances but I can't even ship it to the US because the smaller bottle isn't offered. The price is very steep as well. Sigh.
