Etat libre d'Orange is the creation of the South African born but truly international Etienne de Swardt, a handsome charmer and devilishly skilful conceptionalist. Fascinated by all things erotic and adventurous, seeking to love and be loved, intrigued by the bizarre and the perverse, de Swardt is the ideal ringmaster for this veritable circus of scents. "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. In Etat Libre dOrange’s Declaration of Independence, Etienne stresses that primarily he sees perfume as a tool of seduction, a means of exploring and stretching the senses. His 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
