A tribute to Marquis de Sade, the father of sadism, the man who wanted to attack the sun and ignite the world, liberate us from our preconceptions, break down the barriers which keep us from accepting our own desires. We identify with him, because we try to do the same.  The pleasure and the pain of Labdanum.

 

FULL DESCRIPTION

To attack the sun, to drive it from the universe, to create perpetual darkness – what an outrageous proposition! But Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de Sade, was an outrageous man. He took on many roles: writer, revolutionary, philosopher, libertine. He disdained the social norms and he demanded unrestrained freedom. He questioned every assumption about love, beauty, even violence, and he ignored the taboos.  He wanted to attack the sun and ignite the world, liberate us from our preconceptions, break down the barriers which keep us from accepting our own desires. We identify with him, because we try to do the same.

Which is why Etat Libre d’Orange has chosen to celebrate a man who celebrated extremes. We have invited the Marquis de Sade to join our family of outrageous perfumes. He has accepted with pleasure . . . and maybe a little pain.

Etat Libre d’Orange and the Marquis de Sade. It’s a marriage made in heaven, or possibly in hell.  Either way, it works. Together, we launch an assault on the sun.

To read Sade is to take a risk — one is suddenly forced to face one’s self, exposed. It’s a wonderful risk to take if you want to plunge yourself into the heart and the body of humanity. Because Sade liberates.
He pushes us to imagine and to desire, far beyond the boundaries which saturate our perspective.

"How many times, dear God, have I not longed to be able to attack the sun, snatch it out of the sky, create a general darkness, or use that star to ignite the world."

As a creator of perfume, how could I open my perspective, imagine beyond my limitations? A very personal question. The cistus! One of my paradoxes. One of my gray areas.

I have always recoiled from the cistus, I’ve avoided it or hidden it under thick layers of vanilla and amber as a way of escaping it. This is why I have made myself confront a radical formula: the cistus, exposed, and in all its states.

My dear Marquis: here’s to your suns, to our volcanoes!

Quentin Bisch, perfumer

                                         

From the depths of his prisons, Sade constantly reminded his contemporaries
- and all men - of his injunction to go beyond compromise, to overcome conformity, and to always put freedom rst.

To be yourself, without suffering the judgment of others; to be yourself and to live as you want to live... "All human happiness is in the imagination," Sade reminds us.

Sade was the freest man who ever lived. Sade is desire and passion, strength and tenderness, provocation and sensuality. His scent is the same: in nitely volcanic.

Like his perfume, Sade cannot be banished, reduced to silence, made to disappear.
He is there, always there: unforgettable. This is an eternal fragrance that endures just as his thought endures, beyond time.

— Hugues de Sade

Obsessed

To say I'm obsessed with this fragrance is an understatement.... This combination of scents sends my imagination in overdrive.
I've never been a fan of girly smells. In fact all of my scents are slightly on the masculine side. Every time I wear this it grabs someone's attention and almost always opens up an interesting conversation.

My favorite ELDO scent

This is my favorite evening/going out/going on a date scent. I love the strong incense note that it starts with, and how it gradually sweetens and opens up. Super sensual scent, and my wife loves it too.

Piney

I spray this piney, woody scent on myself as part of starting a sadomasochism scene. It's kind of silly that I'm a top and like to hit people - if they ask very, very nicely, of course - and that this thing called "Marquis de Sade" smells good on me, but here we are. It's deep, it has a rich, woody/herbal scent, and it lasts a long time (even in the midst of heavy exertion, such as swinging a cat of nine tails or a strap). I love the hell out of it. It's everything Stetson Sierra wanted to be when it grew up.

Absolute perfection!

I picked this fragrance out of the almost complete collection box, and I knew right away.. this is the one!

Marquis de Sade is a long lasting, attention grabbing fragrance. It reminds me of an incense called dragons blood, which holds fond memories for me. I absolutely love it!!

Please make more of this fragrance! (It is currently sold out!) I need a bigger bottle!
