True Lust: The Absolute A to Z of Desire
Etat Libre d’Orange, the Parisian surrealist perfume palace has decided to combine the most seductive and devilish aspects of two of their most sensual perfumes (Putain des Palaces and Dangerous Complicity), to distill their essences down to a stunning fragrance entitled True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux (True Lust the Violet Ray of Your Eyes.)
Why This is a Good Thing:
Etat Libre D’Orange, despite their jack-in-the-box, funhouse mirror approach to high perfumery, make some of the most memorable and spectacularly sexy perfumes around. If they decide to blend the formulas of two previous perfumes, the result can only be, well, a drop-dead gorgeous French model who can shoot violet rays of pure lust out of her eyes.
Or, as Etienne de Swardt puts it:
“We have taken the best of two exquisite formulations, combining the explicitly seductive powers of rose, violet, and powder with the implicit perils of rum and patchouli.”
Another Reason Why This is a Good Thing:
True Lust packs over a dozen distracting, silky, and sensual notes into this perfume. It’s like a wearable dictionary of human desire.
Here’s the full list if you need to keep score: Rum, ginger, violet (for the lust-emitting eyeballs), rose absolute, coconut, osmanthus absolute, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rice powder (hello, warm, snuggly skin scent!), amber, leather, “animal notes” (hush – you know you want them), patchouli, and sandalwood.
If you still can’t find your sensual side after wearing this perfume, perhaps you should see about finding your pulse. True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux gives you 14 sultry and undeniable reasons to unleash the superpower of your sexiest (and implicitly perilous) attitude on the world.
