MARQUIS de SADE Perfume
ATTAQUER LE SOLEIL
To attack the sun, to drive it from the universe, to create perpetual darkness what an outrageous proposition! But Donatien Alphonse Francois Marquis de Sade, was an outrageous man.
He took on many roles: writer, revolutionary, philosopher, libertine. He disdained the social norms and he demanded unrestrained freedom. He questioned every assumption about love, beauty, even violence, and he ignored the taboos. He wanted to attack the sun and ignite the world, liberate us from our preconceptions, break down the barriers which keep us from accepting our own desires. We identify with him, because we try to do the same.
Which is why Etat Libre d'Orange has chosen to celebrate a man who celebrated extremes. We have invited the Marquis de Sade to join our family of outrageous perfumes. He has accepted with pleasure... And maybe a little pain.
Etat libre d'orange and the Marquis de Sade. lt's a marriage made in heaven, or possibly in hell. Either way, it works. Together, we launch an assault on the Sun.

THE MARQUIS' SKULL
Who wants the Marquis' head ?
THE MARQUIS DE SADE'S REAL SKULL
On Friday, December 2, 1814, at the Hospice de Charenton, Donatien Alphonse, François Marquis de Sade, died at the age of 74. Buried in Charenton, the body was exhumed a few years later, when the cemetery was moved. On this occasion, the young Doctor LJ Ramon, who had accompanied him in his last hours, had the Marquis's skull handed over for the purpose of studying it. Dr. Spurzheim, a disciple of Dr. Gall, father of phrenology, borrowed the skull and moulded it. The skull travelled to England, America and Germany to illustrate lectures on this topic. When Dr. Spurzheim died, the skull was gone. The only thing left is the moulding that is in the Museum of Man (musée de l'homme).
According to phrenologists, the skull of the Marquis de Sade "was in every respect similar to that of a father of the Church".
This bronze of the skull of the Marquis de Sade was made from authentic moulding. This work of art was performed by the Master founder of art Avangini in May 2012. Each bronze is signed with the initials of the Marquis de Sade.
They are numbered from 1 to 99.
As you will have understood, this numbered moulding is rare. However, of the 99 copies in this series, there are still a few.
