FULL DESCRIPTION


500 YEARS By the rose, I remain.

For twelve years, Etat Libre d’Orange has been celebrating enlightenment
through an awareness of beauty, goodness, sensitivity and intelligence. Our house has welcomed humankind
 in all its forms, as long as they try to contribute to The Perspective – the Renaissance concept of three dimensions in art which allowed for more realistic and profound depictions. And this perspective can be interpreted to extend beyond paintings.

Five hundred years ago, merchants confronted the two established orders :
the Red (priests) and the Black (soldiers). They created a third path, cleansed of dictates, for the proliferation of the arts – and perfume. Etat Libre d’Orange honors the sons and daughters of the Renaissance by offering a trail of insight and alliance for their skin.

Think of Lucifer – from the Latin roots, lux (light) and ferre (to hold) – the shining one, light-bearing, like Venus when appearing as the morning star. Half a millennium to wear on the skin, and in its wake the majestic memory of the rose, the power of spices and the sense of something precious. The story of mankind delivered to you in a perfume.

Evokes sensual memories of more than one lifetime

It's definitely a very interesting scent that evokes sensual memories of more than one lifetime. The initial impression was of freshly laid tarmac on a hot summer's day and the quick thought that maybe I'd made a mistake. But patience allowed it to evolve on my skin to the delicious memory of early morning armpit smell of the wealthy Asian lover I had years ago.

Warm and Sweet

500 Years is warm, spicy, and sweet. It has a good sillage and excellent staying power. I wouldn't have necessarily picked out chocolate or roses in the notes, but the cardamom and saffron are present. Overall, this is a nice spicy scent for cooler weather. Leans feminine, in my opinion, but could be unisex.

Uniquely haunting

Unique with a pleasant dominant scent that i notice off and on throughout the day. I like that, figure others might too!
