You Or Someone Like You by Etat Libre d’Orange




Hi Lovers of NEW!

Yesterday we chatted about You Or Someone Like You by Chandler Burr + Etat Libre d’Orange 2017. It’s brand new, only just appeared at LuckyScent and Chandler sent me a bottle. Suddenly last night after the review went live I thought, how churlish I am not offering a GIVEAWAY! So though we don’t post here at APJ on Saturdays anymore I thought maybe I could make an exception so some of you could get to try it too.

    I’ve sampled a few but I’ll go with Jasmin et Cigarette. I remember this one particularly because I was standing in Sydney Sephora handling the bottle and trying to avoid the stampede of teens vying to get their faces and fingers into the cosmetic counters! Indolic jasmin, smokey tobacco – tick, tick! No ash for me thankfully. I haven’t spent a lot of time with this house but it’s been on my list. would love to try this one.

    Hello and thanks for the opportunity. I follow by email.

    I am yet to sample this house, but Portia’s review of this one certainly captured my interest, and I would love to work my way through the house. I think that would take real guts!

    Jane’s review above of Jasmin et Cigarette sounds very appealing, but I’m a little scared of the Fat Electrician.

    I had a decant of Rien around 3 years ago. I liked it cause it was different, not so floral. Follow by email. Thanks!

  5. Jackie b says:

    This is such a polarising house, some I sampled made my eyebrows disappear into my hair, but I really like Putain des Palaces. Such a great name…

    Thank you for the opportunity. I follow by email. I love NOEL AU BALCON. The honey is so natural in this fragrance.

    I have and love Putain des Palaces and I like Fils de Dieu. This one sounds fascinating and, once more, the name is brilliant. I follow by email.

    I did like the Cigarettes and Jasmine ELDO perfume, can’t remember the name.

    I liked Burr’s book The Perfect Scent.

  12. Neva says:

    My favourite ELDO perfume is The Afternoon of a Faun and I follow APJ by email.

  13. Koyel says:

    Shamefully, I’ve read nothing by Chandler Burr. I’ll have to fix that. I think the only ELDO I know well enough to like is la Fin du Monde. I have a sample of Hermann I ought to spend some quality time with, though. This one doesn’t sound like I would enjoy wearing it, but it sounds so interesting that I definitely want to try it.

    I follow APJ by e-mail. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  17. Ingrid says:

    I just picked up “You or someone like you” from the library the other day and have 2 more books by Chandler Burr on order. Would like to sniff “Fat Electrician” (refreshing name in a sea of ‘noir’ and ‘nuits’). Hopefully get a chance while in Sydney in May.
    I follow by email.

    I read The Perfect Scent and it made me fall for Jardin sur le Nil! Follow by email. 🙂

    Hi Portia, I follow via email.

    I guess YOSLY can be not really my style but it’s my chance to try and find it out. Although, I never win anyway lol
    I love such perfumes by ELDO as Like This, Fat Electrician and Tom of Finland.
