Etat Libre d'Orange

Frustration Sample

  • This is a 2 ml spray sample . Find the full bottle here. 

    The depth of this fragrance draws you in as it opens up with a sweetened vintage rum and sultry bourbon, stored in casks for decades. Released only for special occasions, the distiller pours it over slightly roasted, warm chestnuts that have been spiced with cumin and cinnamon. Your concoction is dazzled with a scrumptious vanilla pod, cut open to release the most inviting, soul-soothing and utterly decadent vanilla aromas. And the drydown, it just gets deeper and deeper. The only frustration in this blend is that it doesn’t come in a bigger bottle.


    Notes include Cumin HE, Cinnamon HE, Pure Rhum Jungle Essence™, Pure Vanilla Jungle Essence™, Vanilla Absolute, Ciste Absolute, Chestnut Wood Accord, Bourbon Vetiver HE, Vinyl Gaiacol – MANE Biotech.
