3.0 Paper wasp: Caustic & burning. Distinctly bitter aftertaste. Like spilling a beaker of Hydrochloric acid on a paper cut.

Man lets himself get stung by a large variety of insects and rates the pain… quite poetic, like little haikus about pain, life, love?

    1.0 Sweat bee: Light, ephemeral, almost fruity.
    Fragrance description.

    3.0 Red harvester ant: Bold and unrelenting.
    A wine.

    3.0 Paper wasp: Caustic & burning. Distinctly bitter after taste

    4.0+ Bullet ant: Pure, intense, brilliant pain.
    ….love prior to being jaded.

    an additional thought to Bullet ant:

    Love is not always followed by jaded. There is just love in a pure state with “brilliant pain (depth)”. Not a rule that it is to be followed by the “distinctly bitter after taste”, of the Paper wasp symptoms.
