Etat Libre is a house that has grown on me over the years. They started out with ones that I liked but never quite fell for, like Rien, They added ones that I really, really liked, such as Like This. They always come about thisclose to getting me but somehow I just never quite go all the way.
Bijou Romantique doesn’t quite get me there either.
It’s very nice mind you, perhaps one of the quietest and most conventionally pretty scent I’ve smelled from them. It’s a lovely iris scent that oens with a bright burst of bergamot and finishing with a buttery vanilla that for all the world gives it a hint of white chocolate in the drydown. It’s subtle, lovely and ethereal and it’s something I wouldn’t wear in a million years.
$99 for 50ML at Luckyscent, where I sampled.
