Floral, Spicy, Fresh

Made in collaboration with Rossy de Palma, this magic potion, this instrument of transformation, could only be made by the crushing of armfuls of roses. Roses with thorny stems that yield lavish blossoms, lush petals, outrageous, puffed-up fantasies, trembling with the sweat of impatience and desire. Roses, red with blood, a piercing note leaving the flavor of fire on lips that suck the finger pricked by a thorn.

 

FULL DESCRIPTION

A bleeding rose. A candy rose. A rose that tastes of fresh milk, a talcum powdered baby’s bottom, a wealth of sugared kisses. At Etat Libre d’Orange, the Virgin rarely wanders far from the Whore. Perhaps she is one and the same. Warmed by the fire of this woman, the noses have embraced a fanciful vision. They have created for her a perfume of protection, a refuge on the battlefield of love. Defensive yet transparent, Eau de Protection conceals as it reveals. For her, a caress is demanded, while those around her are struck with awe. The noses have extracted that which is most profound in her, the essence of her. They have distilled her honey and squeezed the juice from her heart.

MAIN NOTES

Black pepper, ginger, Bulgarian rose, bergamot, jasmine, benzoin from Laos, blood accord, patchouli, incense, cocoa

My 3rd bottle - I have nothing else to say other than I absolutely it.

Perfectly distinguished, enticingly dangerous

This is a captivating fragrance. Upon application there is a stabbing punch of pepper and it’s right hand man ginger but it simmers down almost immediately. The person who wears it is ever so slightly unapproachable but once quick Parisian pecks on cheeks are exchanged they become almost immediately welcoming and admirable. As soon as the aforementioned top notes settle into a flirtatious conversation with the dominant middle & base notes of rose, benzoin, and blood accord it becomes clear this scent is not one to be taken lightly. The person wearing it knows who they are and knows what they want and isn’t afraid to kiss or to kill to get it. Lingers long after goodbyes have been muttered or trysts have been lovingly satiated, longer than a few other ELdO fragrances I've tried honestly. Utterly entrancing and smells like the women at the opera who have left their rich husbands at home. Bizet’s Habanera in a bottle; “Si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime. Si je t'aime, prends garde à toi!”

Recently I visited Paris and one of my friends took me to the Etat Libre D'Orange Store on Rue des Archives - the sales associate was absolutely amazing and honed in on scents that would work with me right away and educated us as to the story of the brand and different scents provided. Learning about how narrative the different perfumes are and each's story was fascinating. I took two samples to try and ended up purchasing both online at a later date. I alternate between the two and they've become my signature scents.
