Find the perfume that loves you...

Etat Libre d'Orange is an eclectic and daring collection of unusual and out of the ordinary perfumes. Its fragrances often use contrasting ideas and raw materials that lead to unknown places and original formulas.

Etat Libre d'Orange creates perfumes that respect the traditions of artisan perfumery, but with a contemporary flair that ruptures rules and abolishes stuffy style exercises.

"Our fragrances have a potential that transcends the boundaries of time."

The story of Etat Libre d'Orange perfumes

Etienne de Swardt is the founder of Etat Libre d'Orange. After seven years and seven perfumes at Maison Givenchy, in September 2006 he created the first realm of olfactory liberty, freed from all taboos and recognising originality and olfactory eroticism as its only sovereigns.

Etat Libre d'Orange has the optimism of madness, the sweetness of tyranny, a disgust for conformism, and a cult for contradiction.

It is proud of its unfettered and audacious fragrances.

Being an alternative Maison in niche territory, it can afford to take risks. This is why it has become an authentically charismatic presence in the perfumery sector.

Declaration of Independence: olfactory liberty

Anyone who wants to be part of this state must know that a Declaration of Independence has been drawn up, proclaiming the birth of a free realm, recognising as its only sovereigns originality and olfactory eroticism.

To create original fragrances, the imaginations of their creators must be given free rein: this is what Etat Libre d’Orange's Declaration of Independence undertakes to respect with its "free noses". 

Perfumers who work for Etat Libre d'Orange are given total creative freedom in the composition of their fragrances. This libertine approach allows them to develop vibrant, authentic, pure olfactory expressions, unhindered by price limitations because over 50% of its budget is allocated to the quest for innovative formulations and raw materials.

Here we have a return to the essential sources of perfume-making, to its animality, its erotic charge, its evocative power, its physicality and its surging impulses.

The principle is simple: the freer the theme, the bolder its interpretation. Not at all a question of shocking for the sake of it, but of a simple provocation of the senses.

This olfactory initiation becomes an incitement to pleasure and abandon, so the most intimate desires, secrets and obsessions may unfold. The goal is to bring joy to the skin, as you would by caressing it with a rough diamond

Those who choose Etat Libre d'Orange perfumes are people with the urge to express their uniqueness through the choice of a perfume, to stand out from the crowd and to rediscover the thrill of perfume as a means of seduction.

Etat Libre d’Orange proclaims the rarity of the raw materials it uses, together with the passion and talent of its "noses". It thus becomes a gallery of avant-garde perfumes, a platform of olfactory innovations that people must discover for themselves.
