Scents of humour

By Georgia Collins


Once in a while a product comes to my attention that I just have to shout about. It could be because it’s beautifully packaged or because it gives my skin a youthful rosy hue or it could just be because it is almost too genius to bear. Case in point a fragrance that’s just landed on my desk by luxury perfumers Etat Libre D'Orange. It is called Fat Electrician. I kid you not. Described as a semi-modern vetiver the scent is not a cloying mixture of sweat, dust and cups of milky tea (and let’s face it you could be forgiven for thinking just that) rather it’s a creamy blend of vanilla bean and smoky myrrh.
