Etat Libre d'Orange Remarkable People- Notes: Grapefruit, champagne, cardamom, jasmine, curry, black pepper, labdanum, sandalwood, lorenox.
Tawny micro-globes of sunlight rise from a grapefruit mimosa, is this early morning shower fresh indulgence or early morning after a cosmopolitan night painting the town red and enjoying the sunrise with a tuft of the hair of the dog that bit you? The dawning sunlight citrus fuzzes with warmth and muffled spice that ushers in the sly jasmine, clement under the persuasion of pepper and cardamom and curry. These notes sound piquant and brass and thunderous on their own but all are finely milled like talc and blend into the flesh like memory. The sable tones of labdanum and leathery amber lorenox smudge just a little darkness under bedroom eyes. Still never sure if the gaze is pre or post assignation.
I bought this 0.16 ounce travel spray for $12.00 at Sephora. It is a seductive, eloquent and beautiful scent. A people pleaser that won't stretch anyone out of a comfort zone but just a little something extra to remind you it is not your average fragrance. I will be seeking out a larger bottle. Adam approves. And Adam rarely approves.
