If surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us, then Etat Libre d’Orange are the best gift-givers ever. What other brand would think to name a perfume Fat Electrician and base a new scent on inspiration from “a real story driven from the hazardous life of a young gigolo in the 70’s in N.Y.C.”? And who else would be able to make this perfume so incredibly attractive and endlessly wearable? “White vetiver splattered on the asphalt of Time Square”, the fragrance juxtaposes the dry, earthy transparency of vetiver with the sweeter, balsamic smokiness of opoponax and myrrh. As the scent develops, it metamorphoses from the green, slightly salty gauze of a smell into something substantial and solid. Vanilla, opoponax and myrrh lend the scent a comfortingly fleshy, well-rounded quality. A unique and surprising take on vetiver, a treat for the many lovers of the note.
