Independent perfume house Etat Libre d'Orange will launch a new unisex perfume from June 2011 called Philippine Houseboy. It will be signed by perfumer Ralf Schwieger of Mane Creations for whom it will be the first collaboration with the brand. The teaser-announcement is somewhat allusive and cryptic, as it should be...
But there are familiar echoes as the new creation is in line with the interest in erotica of the house. Ralf Schwieger is known in particular for his opuses for Frédéric Malle Editions de Parfums, Lipstick Rose, Hermès Eau des Merveilles and YSL Baby Doll. More recently he authored Orange Sanguine (2010) for Atelier Cologne.
"As an awkward Prelude to Ralf Schwieger ‘s erotic Vision of PHILIPPINE HOUSEBOY, Son of God and Citrus, the new fragrance to be launched in June 2011, Etat Libre d’Orange is now housing a Totem of the Guardian of Saliency cornered between rue des Archives.
An authentic Guide for an Olfactory Cruise on the South Pacific Ocean…."
