    Default Etat libre d'orange

    I have just smelled several ELd'O fragrances but they don't seem to last. I love Divine Enfant but I don't know if I'm ok with it's lasting power. Does it last on you? What do you think about it? And also which one is the most long lasting? Thx

    If you haven't tried Rien, you're in for a shock and Vierges et Toreros will certainly not be a forgetful experience.

    They last a minimum (minimum!) 24 hours on skin and forever on clothing. So lasting power is not an issue.

    I did not enjoy Rien (bone dry incense) but own V&T which rates among my top five.

    Would LOVE to try Divin Enfant but it's not available yet in Montreal where I live.

    Divin Enfant is my favourite ELdO fragrance, very sweet and still manages to be very sexy at the same time.

    I dont have a problem with the lastability on me, would rather wear this than a lot ofother fragrances out there!!

    I like Rien, but not enough to purchase---a little too much tar for me. I agree, super lasting power and monster sillage. Eloge du Traitre is my favorite ETAT, but it's so similar to Yatagan, I can't see purchasing it when the cost is 3 or 4 times as much as Yatagan.

    I am the type of person who prefers fragrances that only last a short while (more volatile scents are a sign of being naturally derived i.e. more expensive, and of higher quality, more likely to be phtalate-free, and permit changing perfumes with moods). This said, I own Vierges & Toreros, which does last a while, conceived as a men's perfume but I wear it as a woman and find it sexy and grounding, love the frankincense impression. I am getting "Je suis un homme" for a man in my family (and may borrow it here and there). I also think Tom of Finland is great, very masculine and fresh (that birch, pine, and pepper combo), but I find the gay muscle-man picture on the box obnoxious (don't google Tom of Finland like I did). Etat Libre d'Orange is a VERY FUN line, and I find their work addictive.

    Bijou Romantique and Charogne are complex and fabulous, though Putain des Palaces is too sweet and heavy for me. I was disappointed by Afternoon of a faun, which reminded me of celery or a brothy potion. I have yet to check out some of the other fragrances.

    Tom of Finland is actually a hommage to an artist specialized in gay porno comic/illustration called...well...Tom of Finland. The picture on the box is one of his works. While the fragrance is nice, I feel that it is too safe and fail to exude the daringness and raunchiness of his works
