Undressed is not the same than naked
Prostitution is a professional field with so many areas and levels of specialization that one single perfume might probably fail in representing the entire range of prostitute types.
Smelling Putain des Palaces maybe i could get the "for sale" vibe, but if so, it is certainly not for a cheap price. Precisely, Etat Libre d´Orange is very clear, for this is the type of professionals you can see in the lobbies and bars of five stars plus hotels and earn in one month what i do in one year.

The opening is a fresh bouquet of flowers: i catch mostly rose and a bit of lily of the valley/lilac with a sugary leather. The flowers step back a bit, and the leather/make up/orris steps forward... it turns warmer, like a superfine smooth suede, a skin scent, slightly musky. The flowers are delicately caramelized. At this stage is a very easy, sexy yet elegant fragance.

Drydown is skunkier. Just between you and me, i couldn´t tell if there is pussy in there as some say, washed or unwashed (if there is, i like it after all) but the leather, caramel and violet intensifies and tempering the sweetness there is a slight bitterness that make me think of heliotrope or almond. The perfume smells warmer and more ambery. The skin feeling is more evident. If this fragance had a color, it would be many hues of nude.

A great example of how classy and sexy can go together without taking from each other.

Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
The first 10 minutes of PdP on my skin are deliciously skanky ... like I've been 'taken advanage of' in the back of a limo :). Of course, this is a Maybach, with delicious caramel leather upholstery and a gift of deliciously fragrant roses, violets and muguet tossed carelessly aside on the facing seat :). The couture is Westwood, no doubt, the cigarettes are Gauloise and the city is Paris. Leaving the Haute Couture shows of Fashion Week we are on the way from a bar in the Marais to my suite at Hôtel Scribe ... he's at least 15 years younger than I ... there I will become Putain des Palaces.
Intense immagination is a power granted by the fragrances of Etat Libre d' Orange.

Call me a "Hotel Whore"--if you must!
It took me a long time to recover from my testing of Etat Libre d'Orange Sécrétions Magnifiques and to muster up the courage to test more perfumes from this line, but I am happy that I did. So far I have encountered some very worthy creations--some more worthy than others, but all interesting in their own right. (Except for SM, of course)

My latest pleasant surprise is that I quite like PUTAIN DES PALACES! The opening evokes memories of Frédéric Malle LIPSTICK ROSE, which I also love (and own), but after that the two compositions diverge somewhat, with LIPSTICK ROSE becoming more of a waxy rose perfume, while PUTAIN DES PALACES becomes more ambery and dark, with a leathery edge. The violet and rose are still detectable in the drydown, but they are buttressed by the darker components. I would not describe this scent as "skanky", and to those reviewers who compare PUTAIN DES PALACES to the smell of dirty private parts, well, I'm not sure what to say.

One concern is that if some people really do perceive it in that way, then should it be worn only in private contexts, just to play it safe? Or should we throw caution to the wind, and not worry what other people think? Well, in any case, I certainly think that PUTAIN DES PALACES smells great.

Call me a "Hotel Whore"--if you must!

:-) Well to me this is a mix of a nice and warm powdery scent but at some point through its development it has a urine note that diminishes step by step. Most certainly an interestng scent!
