 Etat Libre d'Orange Like This Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml
Etat Libre d'Orange Like This Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml
Notes: Yellow tangerine, ginger, pumpkin, immortelle flower, Moroccan Neroli, Grasse rose, vetyver, heliotrope, musks "I have never been a one for scents in bottles. The great Sufi poet Rumi wrote: If anyone wants to know what "spirit" is, or what "God's fragrance" means, lean your head toward him or her. Keep your face there close. Like this. This is possibly my favourite poem of all time. It restores me like the smoke/rain/gingerbread/greenhouse my scent-sense is fed by. It is a poem about simplicity, about human-scaled miracles. About trust. About home. In my fantasy there is a lost chapter of Alice in Wonderland - after the drink saying Drink Me, after the cake pleading Eat Me - where the adventuring, alien, Alice, way down the rabbit hole, far from the familiar and may be somewhat homesick - comes upon a modest glass with a ginger stem reaching down into a pale golden scent that humbly suggests: Like This." Tilda Swinton

I tried this as part of the taster set from Etat Libre d'Orange and this was my favourite. It transports me to faraway lands where it's Christmas every day and the world is full of gingerbread houses! A lovely light yet deep & complex scent-starts off with a very 'orange' scent, reminiscent of Tilda Swinton's hair! Then dries down to a lovely soft, sweet musky scent with cloves, cinnamon, black pepper & pumpkin. I can't wait until it's winter again so I can wear it. If you love gourmand scents you'll love this.
