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.

I really liked this scent. It has something under the spiciness that I can't identify. Not for me but very nice

Love the fragrance, and I have a weird ability to turn any fragrance into something less than attractive, usually ending up smelling like someone bathed in bug spray. 500 Years somehow transcends this issue, and remains true to it's scent. I love it!! So will you.

500 Years is a transcendent and extraordinary fragrance. It is deep, warm, spicy, a little dirty and incredibly sensual. Haunting. Narcotic. Frankly I'm not sure why anyone is saying it smells like an 'old person', or old fashioned in any way. It doesn't smell old -- it smells ancient, and that is a very different experience. This is the fragrance of a god. Do you want to smell immortal? There is only one door. It is 500 Years.
