    Fils de Dieu du Riz et des Agrumes by Etat Libre d'Orange

    have tried this at les senteurs two weeks ago, it is probably the only fragrance in which i can stand the coconut and the rice notes but ultimately it is way to sweet for me, veering towards the feminine, also quite innocent and inoffensive, after the usual releases from eldo which some can be quite controversial, this strikes me as.. well, bland.
    i still like it but i don't think i can wear it. i do have to give it another try though, les senteurs did not have samples for this yet, have only tested it once on my wrist. also, i guess that etat libre d'orange have given in to the political correctness and have changed the original and experimental name (albeit only temporary as i have been told) that they've had for this fragrance, which was 'filipino houseboy'. hmmm.. doesn't have the same sound as the incomprehensibly french 'fils de dieu du riz et des agrumes', loosely translated in english as 'son of god and citrus rice'.
