Inspiration

"My mother, she was an anomaly, she was brilliant, she was loved but she paid a huge price." - from an Interview with Lisa Simone, in What Happened Miss Simone?

"I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, it can only be attributable to human error. This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye." - HAL 9000 iconic quote in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

These remarks could summarize our new perfume, a marriage of Nina Simone and Stanley Kubrick. This fragrance is dedicated to them, to celebrate their talents, their deviations from the norm, from the theoretical value, from the expected. This disparity comes with an excess, from a 'computer malfunction', forcing the dose on the iris and musk, and this sublime jeopardy has sprung up to become a perfume, carved by Daniela Andrier. A singularity. A difference. This perfume was necessary.

- Etienne De Swardt

“This perfume is the result of something unexpected. I played with Carto, Givaudan’s AI-powered tool for suggesting formulas. I gave it beloved and familiar notes. Carto suggested an overdose of two ingredients. I took care of the rest.

- Daniela Andrier, perfumer (Givaudan)

Etat Libre d'Orange
Etat Libre d'Orange

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 eclectic; their fragrances addictive.
