You or Someone Like You Eau de Parfum
Inspired by author Chandler Burr’s novel of the same title, You or Someone Like You is a contemporary creation built around timeless materials. It embodies the women of LA – someone like the heroine Anne Rosenbaum: cool and crisp; once foreign but now indigenous; very exposed to Hollywood’s silver screen dreams yet untouched by its materialistic machinery. Anne finds comfort in literature, and the garden of her home which nestles in the hills overlooking downtown LA.
Does Los Angeles have a scent? It’s impossible to say. But Chandler Burr knows Los Angeles. And Chandler Burr knows perfume. So Etat Libre d’Orange decided to collaborate on a fragrance that an LA woman might wear. And we gave it the name of Chandler’s novel, set in Los Angeles.
You may be clever or naive, innocent or sophisticated, sexy of chaste, curvy or thin, tall/small, sweet/dangerous; you may be a blonde, brunette, redhead, bald, or coiffed in some interesting blend of primary colors – but whoever you are, this is a perfume made for you…..or someone like you.
“It should be clear that You Or Someone Like You is not some kind of olfactory landscape painting. Anne is a serious gardener — I wrote a trellis of roses into her garden, I wrote in mint and wild grasses though the individual raw materials are in the end irrelevant. What You is is whatever you find it is. A scent you transplant to yourself. Synthetic and natural beauty. Possibility.”
— Chandler Burr
