    What do you think the new perfume from Etat Libre d'Orange? Are you interested of it? First teaser was named as Popcorn apocalypse, but now it has (probably) name La fin du monde. Have you smelled it? Please tell your first impressions.

    I think it sounds extremely intriguing. I am a fan of well made gourmands, and to this date the most popcorn-ish fragragrance, Jeux de peau, belongs tightly to my top 20. I adore the smell of fresh popcorn, feeling good smelling like one, although at the same time it's easy for me to understand that not everyone wants to smell like that stuff, even if they liked the way it smells...  :)

     

    It is interesting to see how this newly graduated nose (Quentin Bisch) will turn this one out.

     

    Love this video: http://vimeo.com/64878959

    Popcorn note (with seed oils) sounds lovely, but how about the rest of it. Vetiver, sandalwood and iris are all great notes, but they do sound little bit more like L'Artisan than Eldo. New nose has probably lot to show for. So that will probably quite interesting.

    Am I the only one to get strong Dr Strangelove reference from teaser?

    A good reason to visit the new Etat Libre d'Orange shop in London!

    Yes! You don't now how long I've waited for a nuclear popcorn accord!

    Hope that they will have major campaign and they send samples for their former customers.

    Sounds utterly horrid; I think the smell of popcorn is vile.

    I am absolutely with you David re. popcorn . I can't stand the smell of it. Target store cafes here in the US reek of popcorn ..or something they coat the popcorn with.

    This is just another cross-over of the flavour end of the aroma chemicals industry.  That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I think it may have limited appeal.  I’d still love to smell it of course.  My guess is that without the cue that there is a popcorn note in this fragrance, that you probably wouldn’t even think of it while smelling it otherwise.

    I bet the atomic portion of PA will manifest in a nitrile. It has to be so. And then I will buy it, and laugh at your wrinkled noses.

    It is actually quite easy to create the smell of Popcorn.   There are several chemicals called Pyrazines which smell like Popcorn, and are found in Popcorn.   So easy to create the smell, the question being why anyone would want to.

    Definitely. Hell of a lot more interesting than all the speculative mental masturbation and 99% of the other crap on this site.

    I haven't smelled any vile nitrile popcorns. Those around here smell buttery and somewhat fresh bread-like. 

     

    People seems to have strong opinions about Eldo, but isn't it too soon to bash perfume when you haven's smelled it yet?

     

    Even smell of rose can be produced with one or two cheap molecules or with high costs with natural oils. We don't know yet what's is the case here. Even then the cost or origins of molecules isn't same thing as quality. Simplicity can be beautiful too.
