    Default Serge Lutens Exclusives at Christmas...

    In a previous thread a while back, people were talking about how this year, the Lutens non-exclusive available outside of Paris is going to be Chêne.

    Does that mean that there is just one exclusive going to be available this year or is that the only non-export that will be available that wasn't available before and they're going to release all the previous ones (Fumerie Turque, Vetiver Oriental and Chergui), plus Chêne?

    Is only one released each year or one new one plus the previous limited exclusives? Which was it last year? I was saving a little to pick up some Chergui by then, but maybe I should be looking on ebay instead?

    Thanks!

    I think it's just one per year, though some shops my still hold stock from previous years.

    Thanks. That's too bad! Does anyone know what was released when? Which one was 2006, 2005, 2004, etc?

    Well I know it was Fumerie Turque this year and Chergui last year, but I've seen Chergui in some of the shops that carry SL.
    Can't tell you about 2005 - maybe someone else can help?

    Here comes:

    2003 - Un Lys
    2004 - Vétiver Oriental
    2005 - Chergui
    2006 - Fumerie Turque
    2007 - scheduled for Christmas: Chêne

    I hope this is of any help. I checked some sites and although some still have these limited editions shown on their lists, they are "out of stock".
    And we all now what that means when it is a 'limited edition"

    Sorry Caesar. Maybe you will have some luck on eBay.

    Yes, that is the one I tried also. They have a remarkable policy, it seems. Only when you click on 'add to basket' you will get the message that the bottle is 'out of stock'. But the Fumerie Turque is 'in stock'.

    Maybe they are hoping that some day, somehow they will be able to get stock from other shops

    But searching Aedes now, I found to my surprise that they still have Vétiver Oriental and Un Lys.

    ::sigh:: UPDATE. Checked the shipping policy of Aedes. Quote from their site: "At this point, we can only deliver within the United States.
    Due to recent difficulties with Canadian customs we cannot accept orders to Canada. Fragrances are considered hazardous goods and we are not able to ship outside of the United States at this moment".

    Ceasar, return to Rome! You then can order everything you want from Paris.

    Yeah, I was all excited to see Chergui, but then as soon as it was in my basket, it was out of stock! Chergui goes for absurd prices on ebay, though one recently went for a reasonable price and it even came with a Cedre box which I need, but I missed it...

    I guess I will have to march on Rome again. Maybe it's better if I reconquer Gaul and haul the whole Palais Royal back to Montreal with me!

    Surprisingly alot of places still have Vetiver Oriental. It's not very popular, gets bad reviews here and on some blogs. It's one of my favourites though. Smells like vetiver wrapped in suede and I'd recommend it. They still have it at Perfummeshoppe.com in Canada if anyone's interested.

    Hey does un Lys smell like Stargazer Lily?

    I think they still carry Chergui at Barneys in NYC. I picked up a couple of bottles from there back in Feb. Perhaps someone there can help get a bottle to you. It's retail price though.
