As a perfume addict, I am very happy we are getting more niche brands here in Singapore. Especially for Etat Libre D’Orange – a brand I’ve seen in various magazines and have admired their fun, outrageous spirit.
Etat Libre D’Orange came to Singapore recently earlier this year, and I attended an intimate launch party where I got to meet Etienne de Swardt, the founder of Etat Libre D’Orange
It was my first time testing out these perfumes and I have to say, it is definitely everything I imagined. The scents are the most unique, strange – strange is good in my world – scents I’ve ever tried.
The inspiration behind each scent, too, is so refreshing. (I mean, how many times have you heard a perfume be “inspired by spring”? BORING.) As Etienne told me, the brand explores “the risky side of perfume”, and is all about “sincerity, joyful attitude… and a whole lot of nonsense.”
