A perfume is a mixture. A mixture like miscellanea that clashes between words and materials to explain just a little, without explaining too much, the why of a perfume. Frustration. Frustration, the eldest daughter of renunciation and the sister of perfume, since perfume proceeds like frustration in the game of love. It gives by taking up, a fullness never satisfied, an enjoyment started but never achieved, an infinite movement of desire without completion, without apotheosis, an installation that excites, seduces, lulls, dominates and annoys like a Bolero by Ravel. Frustration. So take a vanilla bean, a garden rose with swollen red petals, some old rum exploding with amber woods, a bourbon vetiver, and bring each of these materials to your senses. Frustration. This is the love game of perfume. And it is so much the better because satisfaction kills whereas desire makes you live by creating movement through the ever renewed distance.

Made in France

With this fragrance, Etat Libre d’Orange asks us to become intimate with frustration, understanding that frustration is very much a part of life - and indeed, perfume. The best perfumes frustrate in the same instance that it pleases us, asking us to wait. Raw materials take time before they can be procured, and novel aromamolecules feel more like chance discoveries than they are creations. There is as much pleasure in anticipation as there is frustration - and this fragrance beguiles with a hedonistic and gourmand blend of rum, vanilla, cinnamon, and generous lashings of chestnut grounded with the nutty, woody, and smoky tones of vetiver. Cumin adds warmth that spreads edge-to-edge in this fragrance. Altogether, we chase the lure of Frustration, without knowing where we’ll go or where we’ll end up. It definitely has surprises. Point being, the measure of a great fragrance is that, in spite of frustrations, it results in a valuable experience - and pleasure leads the way all along.
