Etat Libre d'Orange The Afternoon of a Faun Eau de Parfum Spray 100ml


A sensual demonstration of virility, Etat Libre d’Orange Afternoon of a Faun Eau de Parfum is a fragrance dedicated to the faun, a passionate, mythical creature.

Inspired by the relationship between suggestive fantasy and seductive reality, this fragrance explores the carnal subtext of Mallarme’s poem La Faune, and the scandalous ballet danced by Nijinsky. Half lucid and half in dream, the Faun cannot help but be allured by the forest nymphs. As the he lies bathed in sunlight, he does not know whether the encounter was fact or fancy.

A spirited opening of bergamot is made sensual with pepper and incense, while a heart of rose, jasmine and orris is joined with the languorous beauty of the immortal flower. The enveloping dry down of Namibian myrrh, moss, leather and benzoin evokes the earthy sensuality of the forest and its hidden delights.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Pepper, Incense

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful French Chypre The House of ELDO has come up with a delightful Chypre style scent by the talented perfumer Ralph Schweiger. The juice is brilliant indeed; what makes it so good for me is the skilled use of immortelle and incense notes. Good Longevity and moderate sillage. Thumbs up! February 21, 2014
