EAU DE PROTECTION

FG icon
$4

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

lustful, graceful grandeur bottled

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. Once the aforementioned top notes settle into a flirtatious conversation with the dominant middle 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 tbch. Utterly entrancing and smells like the women at the opera who have left their rich husbands at home. This scent is who I imagine my best self to be. I’m obsessed and impatiently await the day I snatch up a full size.

Smells sweetly and a bit spicy. Not sure how to describe it, but it has a very unique smell, not the typical sickly sweet perfume.

Smells like a love potion

Lush. Mysterious. Dark.
Not overly feminine, though i’d definitely say it’s on the feminine side of neutral.
I adore this scent, it’s very me.
I like it by itself, but i also tried it mixed with “spice must flow“, and liked that as well -- tones down the floral elements while keeping that sexy dark feel.

This is the stuff.

Defies description, but I’ll give it a go- deep, dark floral. Complicated hints of spice and “animal” notes. Sexy, adult, above it all. Anxiously awaiting a restock, I’ve found the one I’m looking for.

I wanna preface this by saying that I’m only 19 and that at least on me, this wears pretty young. It’s floral and dark, but has some sweetness that makes it good for both daytime and nighttime. It is also good for younger people. I hate sugary sweetness that you typically find in young-adult fragrances and with this perfume you will not get that. It performs amazingly on clothing (while doing laundry I could still smell it on my clothes days later!), although by the end of the night it seems to have rubbed off on my wrists. You can definitely smell the wood and incense in it, and the rose is a nice touch paired with those scents. All in all, I think this might become my signature scent
