    If you're sampling some from Lutens you might also want to try La Fille de Berlin.

    Re: What's a good skin scent?

    You might want to check out some from Hermès, or by Jean-Claude Ellena in general. He is good at making lighter fragrances that are still high quality and interesting. Examples:

    Re: Worst flacons in your collection?

    It's not ugly per se, but the Omnia bottle doesn't work very well; the liquid usually comes out in more of a squirt rather than a spray.

    Also, ironically, the Voyage d'Hermès bottle doesn't seem...

    That could be. I just checked French Amazon and French eBay and didn't have any luck. Do you speak French? You could do the same thing kumquat said for the French eBay website too.

    Hello, and welcome to Basenotes!

    I googled this perfume, and apparently production of it has been discontinued. This is probably why it's been so difficult to find. I checked a couple discounter...

  12. Re: looking for affordable complements to SERGE LUTENS SA MAJESTE LA ROSE

    I think Perfumer's Workshop makes a scented lotion version of Tea Rose. Maybe that would work well? I know the fragrance is super affordable, so I'm assuming the lotion would be too.
