Take a deep breath and swoon! Let your lungs be filled with the clean air of a summer garden on a misty morning. Let your mind be filled with an instant sense of calm and serenity. Let your soul be filled with clarity and light. Keep breathing and “You or someone like you” will certainly work its magic, because it is one of those rare fragrances with peppermint as their central ingredient which manages to fully deploy its wonderful refreshing and therapeutic properties with none of the more prosaic connotations.

The brain child of perfume expert and writer Chandler Burr, “You or someone like you” was inspired by his novel of the same name, and more precisely by its central character, an Englishwoman living on the rarefied heights of Hollywood. Mr. Burr wanted “You or someone like you” to smell like the perfume he imagined she would wear. An avid gardener, a woman content in her own skin, intelligent, sensitive and cultured, a woman of success. Combining herbs, mint, and dewy roses “You or someone like you” is cooling, reviving and soothing. There’s this sense of stillness and poise about it though which brings it a notch above the simple, invigorating feel of a traditional cologne. “You or someone like you” is more meditative and complex, a grassy, hazy shimmer modulated around various fresh moods, from the exoticism of an eucalyptus and palm trees jungle to the urbane chill of luxurious, air conditioned environment. A tranquil, refined wonder.

Etat Libre d’Orange (“Free State of Orange”) is a French perfume house founded by Etienne de Swardt in 2006. With a motto of Le parfum est mort, vive le parfum! (Perfume is dead, long live perfume!), the house has quickly established a reputation for its daring and unusual compositions with controversial names and images.

Citing the year of their foundation as “Year Zero of perfumery”, Etat Libre d’Orange drafted a company “Declaration of Independence”, with six articles that outline the company’s creative approach, commitment to high-quality materials, simplicity in packaging and subversiveness of concept. The fragrances are genderless and were initially packaged in identical bottles bearing the company name and logo, though fragrances with distinct packaging began appearing in 2007 with Tom of Finland. The company has partnered with a number of celebrities, including Rossy de Palma, Tilda Swinton and the Sex Pistols to produce special edition scents, and has commemorated Tom of Finland and Josephine Baker with fragrances as well.
