If Etat Libre d'Orange had set out specifically to make a fragrance that would delight us here at Luckyscent, they still probably couldn't top You Or Someone Like You. Dedicated to our hometown of Los Angeles? Check. Creative directed by our good friend and collaborator Chandler Burr and named after his L.A.-based novel? Check. And most importantly, the kind of fresh, crisply cool niche scent that's oh so wonderfully easy to wear in any situation, yet distinct and head-turning? In a city where deals are made poolside and boardroom meetings might feature more denim than Italian wool, that's a big, important check. While they're keeping the official notes a secret, we're buzzing off You Or Someone Like You's sharp, fruity opening and ultra-fresh mint and floral body--it really does evoke one of our favorite L.A. experiences- sipping a drink on the wraparound balcony of a party palace in the hills, taking in our big, weird, wonderful city.
Come to think of it, did ELDO and Chandler make this scent just for us?
