Remarkable People by Quentin Bisch + Cecile Matton for Etat Libre d’Orange 2015


Post by Portia


Hey there Australian Perfume Junkies,

It’s excellent having an Etat Libre d’Orange online here in Australia with the whole range. You can buy some in Sephora if you’re in a big city, or Peony Melbourne, but Etat Libre d’Orange Au will ship Australia wide. How freaking exciting is that?

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Grapefruit, champagne, cardamom
Heart: Jasmine, curry tree, black pepper
Base: Labdanum, sandalwood, lorenox

Sweet champagne with a grapefruit twist and a herbal thread woven through? Remarkable People opens a bit like your first sip of champagne punch at a garden party. Simultaneously tart and warming, you can even smell the anticipation in the air. The fizz is maintained into the heart and the smell of sun warmed skin mingles with the woody smell of a BarBQ being organised and the first sizzle of spices as marinades hit the grill.

Remarkable People smells like a lavish reinterpretation of the cologne style of fragrances. A bit warmer and more engaging, unisex and the citrus seems to follow the resins into the base as a pithy, white musky cleanliness. The most close resemblance in a fragrance is Royal Bain de Caron but I wonder if I am being led by the idea of the champagne note. Lorenox is a Mace accord (according to fragrantica) and it has some leather/amber/woodsy facets.

The dry down is pretty, wearable and though no big new reveal it is interesting for a few hours before fading out. I think Remarkable People will be a hit for ELdO because it’s totally wearable and smells very nice. Remarkable? I think yes, if you smelled someone walking by with it on.

  1. Hi Portia. Thanks for the link! . My fav from ELDO is Fils de Dieu… as I love the savoury feel to this one. I will be honest and say I haven’t tried all of the range but I also like La Fin Du Monde a lot too. Hope your trip is going well x x x


  2. I love ELDO. I’m wearing La Fin du Monde today. I also have a few others. I love Rien, Like This, Putain de Palaces, Eau de Protection, The Afternoon of a Faun. The list goes on and on.


  3. Hi gorgeous.
    Hope you are having a fantabulous trip so far.
    I’m a big fan of ELdO… My first was Rien and I have since acquire many (many) more.
    The output of this house are, more often than not, a little different and my favourites are Rien, Tom of Finland, Jasmin et Cigarette, Vierges et Toreros and The Afternoon of a Faun.
    So glad that you can get them in OZ now.
    XXX… T
