    Default Afternoon of a Faun

    Persolaise's review of Etat de Libre Orange's Afternoon of a Faun has sparked my interest in the fragrance.
    Has anyone had the chance to smell this?

    Nice to hear. But was it nice in typical nice or unexpected nice fashion?

    Nice but not one of their best, IMO. I was looking for something else, I guess, and more leather.

    Did it fulfill the role of a classic chypre?

    This is a funny one. There's really nothing to dislike, and there's really nothing enticing to want a bottle.

    I just got a sample of The Afternoon of a Faun and... Air freshener anyone? Not sure why but this gives me the impression that it was made to be used as an air freshener for the home or the car and not as a perfume. Weird one as usual by Etat Libre d'Orange!
