Frustration is a perfume to awaken the strong child in the fragile adult or the fragile child in the too-strong adult. A perfume for a regressive journey to the dominion of vanilla, rum, and vetiver. An extraordinary state of orange that you have to reach in order to live passionately between the child and the adult with the memory of what's missing.

Inspiration: Etienne was walking a few summers ago in Barcelona when he listened to a song by Rare Bird, an English band of progressive rock from the 70's. Song was called Sympathy, and the chorus was "and sympathy is what you need my friend, and sympathy is what you need my friend cause there's not enough love to go 'round, No, there's not enough love to go 'round..." There, in that moment it struck him that the word FRUSTRATION is much more appropriate, more vast, more true, more sincere.

Not bad

It's a nutty vanilla that's not sweet. It's a complicated scent, lots of spices. It stays close to the skin, no real projection, and lasts maybe 4 hours.

I was excited to try this fragrance; but surprised once I got it that it really didn’t go with my body chemistry. It’s sweet and soft with a bit of wood scent. This may wear well for some, not me.
