"Don't Get Me Wrong, Baby I Don't Swallow" and "Hotel Slut"...no, not cheezy porno flicks, but fragrances from the provocative French fragrance company Etat Libre d'Orange (The Free State of Orange). Never heard of them? It's probably because they are relatively "underground" and available in few specialty stores stateside. Amongst perfumistas, however, they are the stuff of legend - especially since 2007 when they introduced their first celebrity scent with Pedro Almodovar's muse/fetish actress, Rossy De Palma: Eau de Protection, a spicy, dirty rose.
And they recently unveiled their latest collaboration with de Palma's pal Tilda Swinton, she of the fiery hair and eccentric style: "Like This" - named for a love sonnet by mystic Sufi poet Rumi. (To hear her reading the poem, CLICK HERE.)
