Fat Electrician is a perfume by an eccentric, creative, affordable and quality niche perfume brand Etat Libre d’Orange. It appeared in 2009 as a modern interpretation of a classic male scent note – vetiver.  From the first sniff, it is obvious that creator Antoine Maisondieu was successful in it. Instead of traditional green and woody interpretations of vetiver, he gave us the spicy, gourmand version that thrilled and enchanted me from the very opening until the last evaporation of scent notes from my skin.

Before we start analyzing perfume composition of Fat Electrician, let talk about the name. The name is not that different from other Etat Libre d’Orange creations – Carcass, Hotel whore, Magnificent secretions are just some examples of wacky but very successful creations. In the sea of Pinks, Energies and other similar titles, Fat Electrician is really an interesting conversation topic. I can already imagine something like this:

  1. Oooh, what smells so nice? Fat Electrician.
  2. Everybody tells me I smell like Fat Electrician. And you know what? They’re right.
  3. And so on…

Perfume composition

Fat Electrician perfume composition is delightful from the very opening. Numerous fans of Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de L’Homme might find another perfume love in Fat Electrician when they smell the sweet reformulation of their favorite perfume. Also, fans of the new direction off perfume scene will find a much-sophisticated version of Paco Rabanne and Armani editions in this perfume and at a price that is not that expensive if it is at all.

Fat Electrician opens with juicy gourmand notes of vanilla and chestnut. When I first put it on I imagined a bowl of the tastiest, creamiest chestnut puree with sour cream. I enjoyed this olfactive dessert for hours while it gradually transformed into a spicy, gourmand vetiver. So beautiful and seductive that even Guerlain would envy it. Ladies, I believe this is the perfume for your ideal man – he is sweet, smells nice and knows how to fix things. What more can a girl want?
