Etat Libre d'Orange Archives 69 Eau de Parfum Spray

£82.00 - £115.00

Archives 69 is a scent of sensual liberation, the very essence of Etat Libre d’Orange. A unification of the masculine and the feminine; a perfume designed to free the senses, to open the heart to all possibilities. It is an invitation to pleasure, an ode to seduction, and it is your to do with as you wish – no rules or restrictions.

“It is an odd one, this scent, a barely tenable paradox, as candid as a lick of vanilla ice cream and as ancient as the burnt offerings of mankind to the gods... The droplets prickle her skin like snowflakes' they trail the faint reminiscence of the first grown-up perfume she was ever given. Crisp as a freshly laundered white shirt - too white not to mess up. She will. A hot flash: pepper, as pink and red as a hungry kiss. This is a cruel feast, got and cold, suave and biting.”

A scent that symbolises both pleasure and pain; the evolution of time and memory. Everything must come to an end, but this end signals a new beginning. No regrets, just the expectation of glorious memories yet to be created. That is the promise of Archives 69, an all-consuming feast of heaven and hell, the terrible and the beautiful.

Etat Libre d'Orange Archives 69 Eau de Parfum Spray is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not going to recommend it to anyone. I like it too really different. sweet but a little bit dirty. Appeals to both sexes in an almost subliminal way. I don't want to share.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Incense That Makes Sense With a name like this one might have expected Etat Libre D'Orange to be wanting to lead us by the kaftan down some day-glo Summer-Of-Love hippie trail. Far from it. 'Archives 69' turns out to be a smoky, vegetal little number whose dry incense notes speak more to the echoing aisles of ornate Italian Baroque church interiors than it would to the Woodstock Generation. Rather Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers than Jefferson Airplane! Somehow archaic and simply beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmth and spiciness, ideal for Autumn nights... Recently purchased this after ordering the sample set (mainly to try Secretions Magnifique!). After testing everything in the set, I was torn between 69 and 'Like This' for full bottle purchase, but this one kept drawing me in, like a constant whisper. The incense note is wonderful, not overdone (not too churchy), and the floral balance is divine. It reminds me of Andy Tauer's L'air Du Desert De Marocain, but much softer, and a little like Theorema, but then Christine Nagel is the nose behind both of these beauties. Definitely recommended for colder days - stays close to the skin, but lasts well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Church The first note is incense (Frankincense), heavy church incense. It smells like Christmas Mass, there is a whiff of candle. A light pepper scent. This reminds me off one of those expensive shops that sells scented candles, bone china mugs, cushion covers and room sprays. It is probably better suited to a candle than a perfume.
