Have you ever thought about how the end of the world is going to smell like? We haven’t, but the creative minds behind quirky, post-modernist brand État Libre d’Orange have and they came up with “La Fin du Monde”, which by no means smells like the literal interpretation of its title. This is pure fantasy, a destruction movie watched from the safety of your cinema seat in total silence. A mute Armageddon developing in slow motion and as such almost poetical.

The cool iris heart is a central piece to this perfume, surounded by a gentle floral, sweet, almost caramelized buttery haze. There are also very subdued hues of something mineral hoovering about the edges, and they help keeping the sweetness in check. The perfume, strangey enough when you think about its name, is a delicate, comforting blur of warm notes with just the slightest unnerving touch, like a muffled gunshot of which you can’t be too sure if it is real or just a figment of your imagination.

Try it and experience comfort against all odds.

Etat Libre d’Orange (“Free State of Orange”) is a French perfume house founded by Etienne de Swardt in 2006. With a motto of Le parfum est mort, vive le parfum! (Perfume is dead, long live perfume!), the house has quickly established a reputation for its daring and unusual compositions with controversial names and images.

Citing the year of their foundation as “Year Zero of perfumery”, Etat Libre d’Orange drafted a company “Declaration of Independence”, with six articles that outline the company’s creative approach, commitment to high-quality materials, simplicity in packaging and subversiveness of concept. The fragrances are genderless and were initially packaged in identical bottles bearing the company name and logo, though fragrances with distinct packaging began appearing in 2007 with Tom of Finland. The company has partnered with a number of celebrities, including Rossy de Palma, Tilda Swinton and the Sex Pistols to produce special edition scents, and has commemorated Tom of Finland and Josephine Baker with fragrances as well.
