Sink The Pink Pop up Store Launch It's in the basement of Etat Libre d'Orange, 61 Redchurch street, that really posh fragrance shop. We're bringing the chaos there! As we're in the basement I'm calling our shop the slut drop! I will be pretending to be a shop girl named Mich whilst Jonbenet will be Shelle, and we'll basically...
Greg Lauren for Barneys New York ~ fragrance review But what about the fragrance? I'm a longtime fan of Ralf Schwieger's fragrances, and we know from his work on Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée and Etat Libre d'Orange Fils de Dieu that he has a sophisticated touch with vanilla. It was Schwieger's name, not Lauren's, that made me want to try...

The Monday Mail ~ help Nicola find a wedding perfume Her short list of favorites includes L'Artisan Parfumeur Iris Pallida, Comme des Garçons Avignon, Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarettes, Guerlain Mitsouko (the old formulation), and the first ten minutes of Penhaligon's Juniper Sling (she finds it dies on her after that).
Etat Libre d'Orange The Afternoon of a Faun ~ fragrance review
The Afternoon of a Faun is not strange or quirky but it's beautifully composed and, to me, addictive (and my favorite perfume from Etat Libre d'Orange...as of today). My only warning would be: you must love immortelle to appreciate it.
Etat Libre d'Orange The Afternoon of a Faun Eau de...
Perfume: the best of 2012 I enjoyed Diptyque's Eau Roseso much that I added a small bottle to my collection, and I'm still savoring my samples of L'Artisan Parfumeur's Séville à l'Aube (a limited edition, alas!) and Etat Libre d'Orange's Bijou Romantique and Fils de Dieu.
I also found two new niche perfume lines to...
Top 10 Fall Fragrances 2012
Etat Libre d'Orange Encens et Bubblegum: Working a similar juxtaposition between girly sweet and austerely cool, Encens et Bubblegum is perhaps not a crowd pleaser. The average fun-lover will likely be put off by the peppery wisp of incense ash running throughout the thing and I know at...

Lady Gaga Fame Perfume Bizarrely, this again has already been done by another niche brand, Etat Libre D'Orange with their 'Secretion Magnifique' who also have a hooker reference in their line-up with Putain des Palaces. And if that's not quite enough, erm, hommage, to niche brands, Lady Gaga's blood sample is...
Ys Uzac Pohadka ~ fragrance review
Pohadka reminds me a little of Etat Libre D'Orange Like This and Christian Dior Eau Noire not just in its use of immortelle, but in how cleverly it mixes freshness and warmth with unusual character. Like This pulls it off by adding clean musk to its thick pumpkin flesh. Eau Noire works it...
I was browsing Luckyscent and other fragrance sites recently and realized that I'd never tried anything by Histoires de Parfums, Heeley or Etat Libre d'Orange (and there are probably more that just didn't register with me, but I'll realize later). I hadn't made a conscious choice to avoid...
Etat Libre d'Orage Bijou RomantiqueEtat Libre is a house that has grown on me over the years. They started out with ones that I liked but never quite fell for, like Rien, They added ones that I really, really liked, such as Like This. They always come about thisclose to getting me but somehow I just never quite go all the...
Etat Libre d'Orange Fils de Dieu, du Riz et des Agrumes ~ fragrance review"
Etat Libre d'Orange classifies Fils de Dieu as unisex (to me, it's feminine in character); it has average strength and sillage, 50 ml for $80.

The Monday Mail ~ help Anastasia find a new fragrance
Perfumes that didn't work for her include:
Etat Libre D'Orange Tilda Swinton Like This: This would have been a great fall scent but the immortelle ruins it for her.
Lolita Lempicka L: Again with that immortelle!
L'Artisan Poivre Piquant: Pepper shaker.
Lush Twilight: The lavender...
Etat Libre d'Orange Bijou Romantique ~ fragrance review Got all that? (If there's also a sexual double-entendre in the name or concept, as there often is for Etat Libre, I may be missing it.)
So, what do we have inside the bottle? Bijou Romantique is a rich, feminine, oriental fragrance that feels, dare I say it, almost classical. Overall, the...
