UFA film studios, Berlin; Paramount – Hollywood and Paris… the glamorous gleam of black & white, luminous blue cigarette smoke filtering through the glare of the klieg lights, the scent of jasmine on warm white skin.

Etat libre d'Orange is the creation of the South African born but truly international, and very conceptual, Etienne de Swardt. "Perfume is Dead! Long Live Perfume!" is his war-cry, celebrating a new No Man’s Land of perfume where literally anything goes, where “provocative” does not just mean saucy teasing but cocking a shocking snook at authority and the establishment, and advancing the frontiers of olfactory science, art and discovery.
The brilliant team of Noses flaunt their sexuality in their creations, but however avant-garde, Etat Libre d'Orange's standards of craftsmanship and quality are second to none. Their materials are of the finest quality, their inspirations are challenging, amusing, and sometimes disturbing.
