By the rose, I remain.
 

For twelve years, Etat Libre d’Orange has been celebrating enlightenment
through an awareness of beauty, goodness, sensitivity and intelligence. Our house has welcomed humankind
 in all its forms, as long as they try to contribute to The Perspective – the Renaissance concept of three dimensions in art which allowed for more realistic and profound depictions. And this perspective can be interpreted to extend beyond paintings.

Five hundred years ago, merchants confronted the two established orders :
the Red (priests) and the Black (soldiers). They created a third path, cleansed of dictates, for the proliferation of the arts – and perfume. Etat Libre d’Orange honors the sons and daughters of the Renaissance by offering a trail of insight and alliance for their skin.

Think of Lucifer – from the Latin roots, lux (light) and ferre (to hold) – the shining one, light-bearing, like Venus when appearing as the morning star. Half a millennium to wear on the skin, and in its wake the majestic memory of the rose, the power of spices and the sense of something precious. The story of mankind delivered to you in a perfume.
