Etat Libre d'Orange

The Ghost in the Shell

  • Try a sample first! 

    A highly synthesized fragrance of advanced biotech and natural origin materials, this new launch from ELDO is meant to take you to the future where nature and technology meet and complement each other. It opens with citrus freshness paired with juicy fruitiness of peach and pear (Hexyl Acetate); a metaphor for human flesh. Clean skin meets beautiful heart with metallic jasmine laying upon a milky skin-like vanilla accord. The woodiness of amber and the minerality of smoked moss to us, represent the path we walk along on Earth. Existential in theory, there’s a beauty to The Ghost in the Shell that represents a sense of peace and calamity, a cut through the chaos, of this life and the one ahead of us. A clean, futuristic, mossy-floral skin scent with an edgy vibe that we expect from Etat Libre d’Orange.


    Notes include Aqual™ (ozonic accord), yuzu HE, hexyl acetate (MANE biotech-smells like pear), jasmine absolute (Mugane™), milky skin accord, moss accord, vinyl gaiacol (MANE biotech-smells like amber and vanilla), and orcanox™ (ambroxan).
