The land of olfactory magic and beautiful collaborations.
Etat Libre d’Orange is like a fairy-tale; fictional world where everything is possible. But, that’s the premise of ELdO, the pillar of the whole story. It all started as radical/provocative perfumery born in Paris under the creative mind of Mr. Etienne de Swardt. He has very interesting personality and appearance, some would say he is extravagant, but actually, he is normal, intelligent guy about whose perfumes I went crazy. It was my desire to make an interview with Etienne and I politely asked my dear friend, Chandler Burr, to introduce me to the ELdO team. I believe that the encounter was fabulous, both for Etienne and me. Finally, I happened to meet Etienne in Florence six days ago and I think that is a beautiful start of the adventure with Etat Libre.
