This scent is inspired by the Marquis de Sade, an outrageous guy who questioned everything. That questioning nature inspired perfumer Quentin Bisch to ask: Why not make a scent built around cistus labdanum? It’s piney, green, dry, and incense-like, and that sounds like the the basis for a great fragrance. We’re thinking that the Marquis would approve. Notes begin and end with cistus labdanum, the resin that comes from the rockrose plant.
État Libre d'Orange, or Orange Free State, was created by Etienne de Swardt to be a provocative, intelligent line, each perfume with a point of view. In the Free Orange State, there are no constraints and nothing is off limits. As the company declares in its manifesto, "Perfume is dead. Long live perfume!" Fils de Dieu was created for État Libre d'Orange by perfumer Quentin Bisch.
