ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE - LIKE THIS BY TILDA SWINTON


"I have never been a one for scents in bottles. 


I have always located my favourite fragrances at the doorways of kitchens, in the heart of a greenhouse, at the bottom of a garden. Scent means place to me : place and state of mind - even state of grace. Certainly state of ease. My favourite smells are the smells of home, the experience of the reliable recognisable after the exotic adventure: the regular - natural - turn of the seasons, simplicity and softnessafter the duck and dive of definition in the wide, wide world."


Tilda  Swinton

Composition: Yellow tangerine, ginger, immortelle flower, Moroccan Neroli, Grasse rose, vetyver, heliotrope, musks...

"When  Mathilde Bijaoui first asked me what my own favourite scent in a bottle might contain, I described a magic potion that I could carry with me wherever I went  that would hold for me the fragrance - the spirit - of home. The warm ginger of new baking on a wood table, the immortelle of a fresh spring afternoon, the lazy  sunshine of my grandfather's summer greenhouse, woodsmoke and the whisky peat of the Scottish Highlands after rain. I told her about a bottle of spirit, something  very simple, to me : something almost indescribable, so personal it should be. The miracle is that Mathilde made it.


The great Sufi poetRumiwrote :


If anyonewants to know what "spirit" is,
?or what "God’s fragrance" means,
?leanyourheadtowardhim or her.? 
Keepyour face there close.
Likethis.


This ispossiblymyfavouritepoem of all time.


It restores me like the smoke/rain/gingerbread/ greenhousemyscent-senseisfed by. It is a poem about simplicity, about human-scaled miracles.  About trust.  About home.


In myfantasythereis a lostchapter of Alice in Wonderland - after the drink saying Drink Me, after the cake pleadingEat Me - where the adventuring, alien, Alice, way down the rabbithole, far from the familiar and maybesomewhathomesick - comesupon a modest glass with a ginger stem reaching down into a pale golden scentthathumblysuggests : Like This…"
