Ever since its inception, Etat Libre d’Orange has been an oddity, a deviation from the norm, an eccentric in the world of perfumery.
They don’t fit the patterns, and don’t follow the traditions.
Etat Libre d’Orange is a study in contradictions; light and dark, decadent and nice, romantic and cynical, honest and ironic. No one knows what to expect from them. Sometimes they don’t know what to expect from themselves.
Etat Libre d’Orange is an anomaly. They are different, their fragrances are different, their stories are different. They value this distinction and celebrate it. And honor that difference with a perfume.
This is who they are.
"This perfume is the result of something unexpected. I played with Carto*, Givaudan’s AI-powered tool for suggesting formulas. I gave it beloved and familiar notes. Carto suggested an overdose of two ingredients. I took care of the rest."
