Afternoon of a Faun By Etat Libre d'Orange 100ml
BRAND: ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE
THIS ITEM IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER.
The faun awakes from his mid-day sleep, and contemplates his morning’s encounters with some nymphs. In his reflections, his pursuit of the alluring creatures takes on libidinous proportions as he seeks to satisfy his desire. It is a beautiful memory – but did it really happen? Reality fades, and confusion reigns until overcome by sleep – which can open the door to more dreaming.

In this scent, find the relationship between the suggestive fantasy and the seductive reality. The Faun, a simple, passionate creature of sylvan life, wakes in the forest. Fleeting memories of the preceding afternoon tease his brain. Here and there, the images of alluring nymphs, each with her contrasting fascinations, drift through his brain, but he cannot assure himself whether these are actual memories of beings, or mere visions of imagination. Surely there was one lovely nymph- and yet more- tender, shy, bold, provoking, yielding- only to recapture events! but he cannot. One after another, images take life before him, only to elude him. He strives to discern whether it be a swan in shining flight down by the lake, or naiads playing in the water. The delicious sensations grow more vague; fact or fancy he will never certainly know. If he could but put substance into his dreams as he blows out empty grape skins. It is impossible. He forsakes the vain attempt. The rich sunlight enmeshes him in langour. The grass is lush and soft. He turns lazily to sleep again and dreams, since waking blurs the actuality of his visions.
