    Chergui by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    I really wanted to love this fragrance; however, Chergui was a disappointment. The pleasant opening smells like Avon Skin So Soft and conjures up childhood memories. After five minutes, the boring powder arrives. Then again, maybe my skin chemistry transforms something attention grabbing into an uninteresting honeyed powder puff. Also, Chergui seems incomplete, as though 2/3 of the recipe vanished in the hot desert wind. Maybe someday I will revisit this fragrance and experience lounging camels and complex “spicy intensity”. Maybe.
