French fragrance house Etat Libre d’Orange has released its first new fragrance of 2022. Frustration is a unisex fragrance that finds itself in two olfactory categories: Woody and Amber.
Etat Libre d’Orange Frustration follows the same general bottle shape that is used in the rest of their fragrances. The bottle itself is a stunning, transparent blood red that covers the entirety of the bottle. The cap is painted metallic gold and a similar coloured stamp is embedded on the corner of the bottle.
The fragrance utilizes top notes of Cumin, Cinnamon and Pure Rhum Jungle Essence to produce a spicy, boozy accord. Below in the heart is Pure Vanilla Jungle Essence, Vanilla Absolute and Ciste Absolute. The Vanilla and floral accords pair with the base to add a Woody element. In the base are Guaiacol, Vetiver and Chestnut Wood.
“Located on a quirky corner of Paris’ artistic and vibrant Le Marais quarter, the perfumery brand crafts eccentric and bold scents like the Frustration fragrance. A blend designed to awaken the strength of your inner child, it’s infused with cumin and cinnamon and closes on chestnut wood accord along with bourbon vetiver,” explains Selfridges.
Etat Libre d’Orange Frustration is currently available in a 100ml, atomized spray bottle and is concentrated at the Eau de Parfum level. You can find the fragrance on Selfridges, as well as the companies website soon.
