    Default Which is the sweetest Lutens fragrance?

    The subject of sweet Serge Lutens fragrances has been discussed frequently, but is there one or more that stand out as the sweetest to you?

    Miel de Bois, maybe? (But I haven't tried many of the Paris exclusives...)
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    Of what I have tried I'd say Louve. I love it but found it just too sweet for wearing. Was stopped regularly by people wanting to know what gorgeous perfume I was wearing when I did wear it though.

    Fumerie Turque is also sweet but has so much weirdness going on as well and that detracts a bit from the sweetness.

    Definitely, definitely Rahat Loukhoum (I probably spelled that wrong).

    I agree! If it was any sweeter, it would give you toothache. The spelling looks good to me.
    Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

    Ditto. So sweet it's almost painful - definitely a fragrance for candy-lovers only!

    It actually doesn't come across as sickly sweet IMO. It's very woody, flowery and has an incensey touch that balances the honey (which seems a bit bitter almost).

    I don't really get "pee" from it, but there is something animalic in there...

    I suppose it's a matter of opinion or chemistry if it really does have a urine smell.

    I remember sniffing a bunch of Serge Lutens while shopping with my daughter and she sniffed MdB and said "Mum why would anyone want to smell like urine?" LOL I wish I got woods and honey from it. Eye watering amonia instead.

    I found that one too heavy on the musk...came across more vanilla-dryer-sheet than expensive perfume.

    As far Miel goes - it's truly a fascinating creature...I never want to wear it, but it lives up to its reputation.

    So much for our "subjective measuring". What is the definition of sweet and how do we measure it?

    Hard to really tell. Like comparing chocolate with ice cream.

    Experience?

    Maybe more of an association with taste? Not sure. Good question though...but I don't think anyone has thoroughly explained how we smell in general (has Turin's theory been proven yet?)

    I agree with the majority: Rahät Loukoum

    Good news for those of us who loathe the extreme sweetness..I tried a bunch of new batch Lutens (Chergui, Arabie, Rahat, etc.) and it seems that the overt sweetness has been reduced by around 20-25%. Sure, they are still sweet, but not as extremely sweet as they once were.

    That makes sense. I was kind of baffled by all the gourmand descriptions of Chergui. Sweet? Yes. Gourmand? Not really. London, Ambre Narguile, Tobacco Vanille - all sweeter.

    I thought Datura Noir was also pretty sweet.
