Gossipmongers say he gives humans nightmares. No, he makes them dream lovely things, but he doesn’t show himself because he’s not exactly Mister Universe. He draws near after you’ve closed your eyes and sends you a fluid, which – strange but true – has the bouquet of Schioppettino, which it seems he especially likes. When you wake up you can still smell the aroma of this nectar. Your dream? Well, that’s your business.
