Etat Libre d’Orange’s fragrances are messengers of light combatting darkness and ignorance. They have evolved from the cult of merchants into what is most beautiful –
the exchange among humanity’s brothers and sisters. It’s all about merchants, and in order to remember their open roads of spice and silk, as opposed to the obscurantism that all too often condemns us, we praise the merchants by dedicating to them this new fragrance. The spice becomes cosmic, mystical, enchanting, and it carries the echo of your name to the brightness of the stars. A universal fragrance.
Editor's Notes: Shift your perspective, and oppose obscurantism, darkness, and ignorance. This has forever been Etat Libre d’Orange’s perfumed quest, who welcomes humankind in all of its remarkable forms. Is this what we value most? In Frank Herbert’s sci-fi creation Dune, ‘the spice’ heightens one’s awareness and projects them into the future: it is the most valuable commodity in the universe. This is the source of the fragrance’s name. Why spice? Because historically spice has travelled along and traded on open roads, where perspectives collide. Spice Must Flow is a cosmic melange of spices ranging from precious saffron, cardamom, dusty cinnamon, ginger, and pepper all at the behest of powerful Turkish Rose – it too spicy, delicate, and bewitching, rubbed with a pure and clarifying incense note, drying down to something almost leathery in character. This is a Soft Oriental at its absolute spiced best.
