État Libre d'Orange - Secretions Magnifiques

Ahhh, the infamous Secretions Magnifiques! Awarded 5 stars by revered critic Luca Turin in the Guide for, we assume, sheer chutzpah, this is a scent that sets out to capture all the salty, metallic, and milky notes involved in human secretions such as blood, sweat, semen, and saliva. Perfumer Antoine Lie says that the azurone in Secretions Magnifiques "smells a bit like saliva when you lick and then smell your skin."

It's about as lovely as it sounds. Seriously, though, this is an experimental perfume that will test your boundaries and expand your olfactory repertoire. One might say that it's an education for the nose. Some find it unbearably animalic, whereas some find it comforting and sensual. Here is the stirring description of the scent by its creators: "Masculine tenseness frees a rush of adrenalin in a cascade of high-pitched aldehydic notes. The sensation of freshness is gripping. Then the fragrance reveals a metallic side, precise and as sharp as unappeased desire. We are on a razor-edge... skin and sweat mingle, and tastes of musk and sandalwood. The slightly salty marine effect stirs, arouses, and sets your mouth watering. Tongues and sexes find one another, pleasure explodes and all goes wild. Confusion reigns supreme. A subversive, disturbing perfume. It's love or hate at first sight."

Notes: iodized accord (fucus, azurone), adrenalin accord, blood accord, milk accord, orris, coconut, sandalwood, opoponax
