Don’t Get Me Wrong Baby, Yes I Do by Antoine Maisondieu for Etat Libre d’Orange 2016




Heya Frag Hags,

Recently I was over at my mate Bronwyn’s house. She has so much going on with new Gascoigne & King candles, a brand new concept I can’t tell you about and the exciting release in Australia of ELdO’s Don’t Get Me Wrong Baby, Yes I Do. There are plenty of rumours flying about but I haven’t heard anything definitive about what’s happened to the original but perusing the Etat Libre d’Orange site it has been taken off the shopping list.

Don’t Get Me Wrong Baby, Yes I Do by Etat Libre d’Orange 2016

Don’t Get Me Wrong Baby, Yes I Do by Antoine Maisondieu


Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Orange blossom, lily-of-the-valley, patchouli, jasmine, aldehydes, amber, cacao pod, marshmallow, musk

The note list has not changed between the old and new but I’m wondering if they have tweaked the formula at all. The good news is I have a bottle of both here so I can do a fragrant throwdown. Let’s do it together.

Yes I Do v I Don’t Swallow

Firstly, the new bottle is so bloody pretty. Shimmery, like an old fashioned nail polish. Match that with the gold sticker and it’s all very budget line from a high fashion company, aimed at the young. It feels very Love Moschino, Juicy Couture or Lauren Ralph Lauren. The fun, affordable brands aiming directly at the market I imagine this will also hit.

Both open with a sheer soft focus Lily of the Valley (LotV), sweetness added by the marshmallow and a very youthful, clean jasmine/orange blossom. If you like your LotV Diorissimo style then you’ll be disappointed. Here we have a much less strident rendition, no screech, just pillowed clouds. The two fragrances smell pretty similar to me, not much change. They may have added, tweaked and subtracted some stuff but it hasn’t changed the ultimate ride. I do like spritzing from the new bottle better though because it’s so fun.

Personally, I don’t get a lot of the oft hyped funk that this scent was purporting to display. All I get is a bit of plasticky patchouli, some extra depth and warmth coming through towards the end but I’m still smelling soft wafts of LotV which keeps the whole scent fresh, youthful and prim.

Sephora will have Yes I Do in Australia
Etat Libre d’Orange has €85/50ml (Shipping to the world only €15)

Want to check the difference for yourself? I’d love to hear if you think it has changed.

  1. Hi Portia, and thanks for the giveaway. I follow by email.
    I like ‘Yes I Do’ … because it could mean anything.


  2. I don’t understand what this swallow angle has to do with perfume, but YES I DO want to win this prize. 🙂 I follow by e-mail.


  3. I follow via email and Facebook.

    I prefer the name Yes, I do, but if you ask me which I personally prefer to do, I would say, I don’t swallow. TMI. LOL


  4. I follow via email. I like the new version for both the bottle and the name. Yes I Do! Thanks for the giveaway.


  5. Frankly I find both names very crass, but they are the people who gave us Putain des Palaces, so I should have expected nothing else. I prefer the old name because it has more spine.

    I follow by email. Thanks for the draw! I’ve been quite curious since the new one came out. Not sure I like the bottle, though.


  6. I find the newer name better because the swallow part in the older one is a bit, I don’t know, cheesy maybe. I follow APJ through email and Facebook.


  7. Yes I Do sounds better to me, I would have a hard time telling someone the name of the fragrance I am wearing is called I Don’t Swallow! I follow by email!


  8. Yes I Do sounds so innocent unless someone knows the full name of the original. I’ll go for the original in recognition of ELDO’s deliberate cheekiness when they started up.
    I follow by email. Thanks for the draw.


  9. Follow by email, I prefer “Yes I Do”. The original was cheeky and cute for a bit, but then got a little tired and not so cutting-edge anymore. Thanks! Xoxo


  10. Yes I Do. The other one has got sleazy connotation to it even if unintended. I follow via your BLOG and email. Cheers Portia.


  11. I follow via email and i would prefer ‘Yes I do’. I think the original is more ELDO. I actually wore it the other day. Such a cheeky name for a scent that is so innocent!


  12. I kinda prefer the ‘shock value’ of original name…..just tickled my fancy
    I follow via Twitter and facebook.
    Thank you for the opportunity to try each perfume.
