If surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us, then Etat Libre d’Orange are the best gift-givers ever. What other brand would think to name a perfume Fat Electrician and base a new scent on inspiration from “a real story driven from the hazardous life of a young gigolo in the 70’s in N.Y.C.”? And who else would be able to make this perfume so incredibly attractive and endlessly wearable? “White vetiver splattered on the asphalt of Time Square”, the fragrance juxtaposes the dry, earthy transparency of vetiver with the sweeter, balsamic smokiness of opoponax and myrrh. As the scent develops, it metamorphoses from the green, slightly salty gauze of a smell into something substantial and solid. Vanilla, opoponax and myrrh lend the scent a comfortingly fleshy, well-rounded quality. A unique and surprising take on vetiver, a treat for the many lovers of the note.

ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE
ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE
Perfume is dead, long live perfume!...or so declares the irreverent d Etat Libre d'Orange in their Declaration of Independence. The Free State of Orange is a land of olfactory liberty where there are no taboos, or constraints on fragrance creation. Headed up by the mercurial Etienne de Swardt, Etat Libre captured our interest upon its inception in 2006. Who else would dare create a fragrance based on incense and bubble gum, or a hotel madame? Insolence? Perhaps. Subversive? Most definitely, but it is rare to see anyone these days push the envelope so far with a fragrance, much less an entire line. We love the adventurous spirit and unconventional approach and we applaud the results. Les parfums et mort, vive les parfums!
