You Or Someone Like You is an elegant olfactory fantasy inspired by perfume maven Chandler Burr's novel of the same name. A story of modern Los Angeles: and now a scent that perfumer Caroline Sabas and Chandler Burr have created for the heroine of that novel, Anne Rosenbaum. 'The raw materials are completely irrelevant..' Chandler Burr. Having said that, You Or Someone Like You draws on every aspect of the feverish atmosphere of the City of the Angels. It's everything you ever imagined in that city of breathtaking talent, turquoise swimming pools, sun-drenched heartbreak and wasted dreams. Green, fresh, sunny, mysterious, electric and strangely like You.. or, someone like you..Millions like us.
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.
