    Default Latest Etat Libre D'Orange - The Ghost In The Shell!

    https://www.basenotes.net/threads/50...=1#post5525854

    Have any European Basenoters tried this yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

    Sure blind buy for me.

    Looks too feminine. Bottle is cool, but it doesn't match the name. I don't think anything could dethrone Fat Electrician from their house. Tried most of their frags, and they're pretty bad, with the exception of a few hits, and maybe 2 or 3 that are bottle worthy,

    Agree that it does look feminine.

    Lily of the Valley is really making a comeback in new scents.

    I've noticed that also.

    Interesting name, the notes make me think it will skew feminine.

    As a fan of both the Ghost in the Shell series and ELDO, I'm very excited for this release. Jugding by the notes posted by ELDO, I guess the fragrance will focus on the note of lily of the valley (the captive Mugane of MANE). I hope there is still some interesting facets in the actual fragrance and it is not just another muguet/lily of the valley fragrance.

    ELDO highlights the use of the captive Mugane from MANE in their official notes listing so I really do hope the Lily of the Valley is prominent in this fragrance. I have a preconceived notion that muguet fragrances are often fleeting and ethereal (Muguet Guerlain, Muguet Fleuri Oriza L. Legrand, Cavatina Parfums Dusita, Diorissimo Dior) so if ELDO can manage to create a muguet fragrance that is punchy and agressive I would not be mad.

    Sounds good to me. I wear so called feminine perfumes all the time, and have no issues pulling it off.

    No hidden meaning. Just saying a confident man can wear many feminine perfumes.

    From notes it looks like Synthetic Jungle built on the base of Mitsouko instead of No 19.

    Does anyone know what "Orcanox" is? Given the whale-ish name, I'm guessing some kind of synthetic ambergris?

    Whenever I see a synthetic name like this I’m always tempted to find some and test it as a “molecule fragrance”. Wonder if I can get it.

    Was "Orcanox" a villain in the movie/graphic novel?

    Found:

    What are your five favourite smells in the world?
    • Orcanox, a form of white amber, because it smells like warm skin.

    Ha! That would have been very ELDO-like.

    Whoa. Interesting name for sure. Could have been something I’d expect from Oliver & Co (Avantgarden). But the notes…? I’m already put off by ‘milky skin accord’.

    The childrens ones by Guerlain (pink and blue labels) had that creamy, milky, nutty skin accord

    I'm optimistic! It sounds wearable for sure
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
