The Afternoon of a Faun by Etat Libre d'Orange

A sylvan dream mixed from oakmoss, resins, orris and sparks of cinnamon.


Inspired by Vaslav Nijinski, created in collaboration with Mx Justin Vivian Bond

In 1912, when Nijinsky danced the story in Paris, he created a scandal.  Shameless, the critics declared. The carnal subtext of Mallarme’s poem had become an explicit expression of a sexual appetite. The ballet went beyond the sensual to a demonstration of powerful virility.

In this scent, find the relationship between the suggestive fantasy and the seductive reality. Then go ahead and make your own scandal.
