Etat Libre d'Orange: Remarkable People

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.


  1. I am loving my sample pack from sephora, I didn't know you could buy them individually. I am contemplating buying the Histories de Parfums discovery kit. I recently picked up a bottle of Molecule 01 and I can't stop wearing it! I am glad I got the 3.4 oz, its also great as a layering scent Take care, Ellisa

    1. Isn't it great Ellisa?! I only noticed that this one was available as a larger sample spray. I bought the Histories de Parfums Discovery set and it was nice. I ended up liking a few but not sure if I would buy a full bottle. Let me know what you think when you get it. I want to try Molecule 01. I hear great things about it.

  2. I found the spray vial on the website. I order the HDP kit along with shisedo cotton so I could get the perfume samples and nude sticks eye pencil.
