Etienne de Swardt founder of Etat Libre d'Orange in an interview given to The Star has announced that a new fragrance called Tom of Finland created in partnership with the Tom of Finland Foundation specializing in erotic art will see the day later this year......
"No libertine, de Swardt is a non-smoking father of three. As a teenager he was inspired by The Road Less Travelled, a bestseller about spiritual growth. As an adult, turning 37 in August, he describes his politics as moderate. Nonetheless, he has taken a radically open-minded and inventive approach to fragrance. Working with perfumers from Givaudan, one of the world's major suppliers of scent, de Swardt has already introduced 15 fragrance creations."
We also learn that Antoine Maisondieu is the grandson of Albert Camus and that Antihéros was in fact inspired by the iconic novel L'Etranger.
