Une Amourette is the result of a collaboration between Etat Libre d'Orange and French fashion designer Roland Mouret. Une Amourette is a dreamy scent that is subtly, sensually designed to draw attention your body as it drapes on your bare skin. Complex and quietly dramatic, Une Amourette is a perfect creative collaboration.
The opening is a peppery, citrusy, slightly camphorous rush followed by darkly spicy florals. The woody iris recalls the earthiness of patchouli. Une Amourette evokes a matte image, both muted and bold. Is it modern? Is it retro? Depends on how you look at it.
Notes include neroli, iris, akigala wood (a special distillation of patchouli), jasmine, and vanilla.
- 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!"
