EAU DE PROTECTION
The opening is bright - very bright. Kleig-light bright. I acquired this in a swap a few years back, and, while intrigued with the scent and the notes, and 100% loving the Rossy de Palma connection, it soon went to the back of the cupboard because of its somewhat brassy opening notes. About a month ago, for a reason that I cannot now recall, I took it out and tried it again. It was when I got whiffs of the dry down - the nicest, warm, dry, cocoa-patchouli snuggle, that I really fell in love. I have been wearing it so frequently lately I had to order another bottle - 100mls this time. Now I fully appreciate all the stages, from the "wake me up!" opening with its bright and rasping bergamot and ginger, all the way through to one of the best dry-down in all of perfumery.. Another masterpiece from ELDO.
In fact, UK Etat Libre is not in uk - the link takes you to USA and subsequently you pay £60+ import duties and tax! This despite the prices given in English £. I am trash is wonderful as are all the Etat Libre perfumes - I suggest you also check out Exit the King and Fat Electrician. But buy them from perfumery in Knutsford where you will get a fabulous service.

As an ex smoker I adore the lazy evenings out sipping Champange this fabulous scent reminds me of...A BIG THANKYOU to ALL involved in the preparation and execution of the Whole Range of ACE Delights !!
You remember how a cigarette used to smell, say on a warm summer day, outside, when you were about seventeen? You weren't even the one smoking it - but as that aromatic, slightly acrid blue smoke wafted past your nose, it carried with it the aroma of adventure, excitement and glamour. You were wearing bell-bottomed, hip-hugger jeans, a yellow halter top, and your wavy brown hair fell halfway down your back. Those were innocent days. Let's say you were also under a jasmine tree in full bloom. Summertime at its best.
I bought the perfume almost straight after the launch of the flagship store in Paris back in 2006 and it became my signature scent for years, to the point friends of mine could tell “she was here”, “she must have arrived”! Despite its name, it’s a very elegant, yet distinct scent, and many times I’ve been asked by strangers what was my perfume (sillage is pretty strong and longevity -at least on me- lasts until the following day). I think it’s become an iconic perfume!
I love it. I mix it with other perfumes to come up with my own as it works really well a base. Have received constant compliments!
Get compliments wherever i go. This is truly just a beautiful scent.
Arrived in good time, great combo of a classy scent with a provocative title.
This is the best perfume I have ever worn! It smells delicious and it is super long lasting. It is light and fresh enough for day and has musky/woody notes to also be suitable for night. I highly recommend!
i really enjoy this perfume. it is sweet, fresh, minty, almost a little earthy or grassy, clean. very unique. i feel that this is a warm-weather scent. i’m still wearing it every day in the cold
Ordered the fragrance sample set, and chose You, Or Someone Like You. Found a few I liked, but loved the citrus sweetness, and had to buy it. Service has been fantastic.
