What do Tilda Swinson, fat electricians and cigarettes have in common? They’re all unexpected inspirations for scents by kooky French perfume house Etat Libre D’Orange. I’ve been obsessed with their irreverent yet yummy-smelling concoctions ever since I discovered them at Min New York (if you haven’t been I highly suggest a visit!). My favorite is Jasmin et Cigarette, which is luckily more sweet than smokey with notes of apricot, tobacco, cedar wood and musk. Other noteworthy (if funny-sounding) options include Fat Electrician, Vraie Blond and Secretions Magnifique. They’ve also partnered up with Tilda Swinson and The Sex Pistols on special-edition perfumes. Who says the French don’t have a scents of humor?
