ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE is an ambitious and bold niche perfumery brand, created by Etienne de Swart in 2006, with its newest fragrance released in 2023.

ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE perfumes are made in collaboration with several perfumers (Antoine Maisondieu, Christine Nagel, Quentin Bisch, Antoine Lie, Mathilde Bijaoui, Shyamala Maisondieu, Violaine Collas, Nathalie Feisthauer, Cecile Matton, Ralf Schwieger, and Caroline Sabas).

ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE is considered a different perfumery, with a liberated and free perspective to love and be loved.

ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE is considered a whimsical perfumery that uses irony to perfect the names of its fragrances. An energetic perfumery that shakes prejudices and arouses ambiguities. A perfumery that plays with ideas and reinvents the pleasures of scent, through sublime juices, composed of living matter that merges with the skin, therefore, they can only belong to the person who wears them.

Perfumes made without restrictions or compromises, designed to tempt, seduce, and continue to seduce. Perfumes created to expand the boundaries of perfumery, to surpass the forbidden, to break the rules, to rebel. To finally exist.


ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE currently presents a collection of over 30 fragrances. Emphasizing originality, audacity, authenticity, and freedom of expression, ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE offers surprising olfactory compositions, without limitations of creativity or raw materials.

It is a perfumery house with its uniqueness, its sincerity, unexpected, sometimes ironic, often subversive, and always elegant.


When Etienne de Swardt created his perfumery house in 2006, he named it ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE to honor his birthplace and what it represents.

In South Africa, Etat Libre d'Orange (the Free State of Orange) was a land of astonishing beauty, color, and unforgettable scents, a nation of contrasts, strong feelings, and mixed emotions. The multicolored mosaic of people and cultures gave it an unpredictable, sometimes wild nature. Unity, beauty, and freedom are the hallmarks of ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE, which always seeks freedom.


The bottles of ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE are simple, sturdy, serious, and attractive bottles that contain true creativity.

The three-color rosette is a symbol of freedom. A proclamation of difference. It appears as a seal, a commitment, on the edge of all bottles.

The bottle fades before the perfume it contains inside, the superfluous gives way to the essential. To the essence, which is what endures over time.
