French niche line Etat Libre d’Orange has launched Frustration, a new fragrance.
Found on the 9 Rue des Archives, Etat Libre D’Orange explains that much of its inspiration comes from its location. Located on a quirky corner of Paris’ artistic and vibrant Le Marais quarter, the perfumery brand crafts eccentric and bold scents like the Frustration fragrance. A blend designed to awaken the strength of your inner child, it’s infused with cumin and cinnamon and closes on chestnut wood accord along with bourbon vetiver.
Additional notes include rhum, vanilla, ciste and vinyl gaiacol*.
Etat Libre d’Orange Frustration is available at Selfridges in the UK, £205 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
* Per The Good Scents Company, "4-Vinylguaiacol is an important constituent in distilled spirits (whiskey, rum) where it contributes to the overall sweet smoky background notes. It also contributes to the flavour of Tobacco. Used in Coffee, Chocolate, Spice, Vanilla, Tea, Whiskey, Rum, Tobacco, Roasted Peanut and Strawberry flavors."
