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.

Love the scent, way too expensive

Gorgeous scent. Lasted all day, and if it were a reasonable price, I’d buy the full size. But I wouldn’t pay that much for perfume even if I could afford it.

As volatile yet sturdy as the Earth itself

Aptly named, the fragrance is evocative of ancient memories from various past lives mingled. The scent is like a mood ring of a fragrance, a little different with each spray upon the skin yet always still “itself” with a deep tone.
