Much like the brand Etat Libre d'Orange itself, Attaquer Le Soleil is a scent created to embrace desire, darkness, and risk; to liberate and challenge conformity.
Young perfumer Quentin Bisch confronts a material that he has always recoiled from - citrus labdanum. Instead of hiding it under amber accords and vanilla tones, here he exposes the material and faces it: a single accord of labdanum created in a singular and complex manner to evoke the atmosphere of one of the most turbulent and amoral periods in French history.
50ml / 1.7 fl.oz Eau de Parfum
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.
