Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.85:1 ratio widescreen color. It looked very solid in almost every scene, even the dark scenes with great looking fleshtones and minimal grain. There was a problem with the dvd displaying micro-freezes from time to time (this was a mastering problem with early Evil Angel dvd's too) but it was only a heat-reducing problem in one scene. The audio was presented with a choice of either 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround French or 2.0 Dolby Digital English. Both tracks sounded solid with a good mix between the vocals and music.
Body of Review: For a few years now, Wicked Pictures and Marc Dorcel ( A French company) have had a partnership to release each other's movies in their respective markets. Both companies strive for high-end feature porn so the deal makes a lot of sense. My only concern with Dorcel releases is that the extras, when they have them, are in French without subtitles. Their latest release on dvd is a movie called The Scent Of Desire (Le Parfum Du Desir). It had a slight plot concerning a sexually inexperienced woman (Melanie) and a trip with her friends to the mansion of a pal who just inherited a lot of money. The women looked very good, the sex was fun and I enjoyed the experience quite a bit. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Melanie, a cute blonde, and Philippe, outdoors in a field. This was a short but sweet and erotic scene. Oral and straight sex only but warm.
Scene Two: Lea, a super hot blonde, and Titof, had a scene in a wooded forest. She hasn't looked this good in a long time and the scene was very warm.
Scene Three: Sheherazade, a dark-haired beauty, and Ian, had a scene in a car in a deserted area. The two had an erotic scene that ended in anal sex. There did appear to be some chemistry here and they looked good together.
Scene Four: Tiffany, a blonde, warmed herself up in a shower before asking Pascal to join her. The scene was pretty good except that there was a problem with the dvd (causing it to skip for a moment, twice). The sex was energetic and warm, ending with a pop shot to the chest.
Scene Five: Monica, a true sweetheart of a gal, Mark, and Philippe, had a threesome on a bed. The sex included a DP and was good but short.
Scene Six: Lea and Titof were back at it again but this time in the wine cellar. This scene was as good as their first together and had plenty of heat. Yum!
Scene Seven: Valentyna, Mia, and Tutus, had a scene in a 1930's setting while Melanie watched them. This was another erotic scene with some warmth.
Scene Eight: Monica and Melanie started off with a lesbian pairing until Philippe joined them on the bed. The sex was well done and included anal action.
Summary: While I wished for more extras, I can't deny the appeal of all the positive aspects of the movie. Attractive gals, good sex, and high-end production values made me rate this as Recommended although fans of the cast will likely consider it a "must have". I just hope the mastering problems for the dvd are fixed before future efforts.
