    Default Help me select nineteen Serge Lutens for a Poll

    Hi,

    I just started a thread on the men's forum looking for nineteen Lutens to be included in a poll.

    Please help me whittle it down to just our favorite favorites.

    Thanks,

    Two

    My hero! I am always in for something Lutens. I would suggest:

    Chergui
    Arabie
    Ambre Sultan
    MKK
    Cuir Mauresque
    Bornéo 1834
    Santal de Mysore
    Douce Amère
    Fumerie Turque
    Un Lys
    Sarrasins
    Chene
    Iris Silver Mist
    Datura Noir
    Tubéreuse Criminelle
    Encens et Lavande
    Rahat Loukoum
    Un Bois Vanille
    and Féminité du Bois as the mother of the "Bois" scents in the line

    Based not only on my faves but on those I see most often worn and discussed on BN.

    The 20th and final selection has been reserved for "My favorite Lutens is not Listed"

    Iris Silver Mist (my favourite and very different from the rest)
    Cuir Mauresque
    Tubereuse Criminelle
    Fleurs d'Oranger
    Feminite du Bois
    MKK

    Of the ones I've tried I think these all kind of stand out as unique. I haven't actually listed all my favourites here, but rather the ones that I think make a statement or represent something.
    Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

    Chergui
    Fleurs d' Oranger

    Good luck with the poll!

    Spicie, Tworoads opened his first poll already, on the guys' side. He decided to split it between exports and non-exports, therefore almost every Lutens will be covered
