    So far... Muscs Khoublai Khan. I own it.

    I have also owned Chene. Great fragrance, but it bores me after about an hour.

    I owned Chergui. Somehow I like the wax samples better than the spray. I had to let it go.

    I like Ambre Sultan a good deal. I have a mini of it. I don't reach for it often though.

    Also no specific order: Fourreau Noir, Bois Oriental, Gris Clair, Iris Silver Mist and Vetiver Oriental - lately I've found the most wearable one out of all the Lutens lineup is Fourreau Noir.

    I have only tried a few (L'Eau Froide, Vitriol d'Oillet, Fourreau Noir and Nuit de Cellophane). From these 4 the best is Fourreau Noir with its buttery combination of lavander and tonka beans. The second one is Vitriol for it's spiced carnation. The other two are good, but not really.

    Lately, I've been obsessed with Cuir Mauresque. It changes a lot from the topnotes to the drydown. I get mixed results on it. I've encountered a few people who may have perceived it negatively, and on the same day also got more compliments than I could count.

    I'm also a big fan of Fumerie Turque, Douce Amere, Ambre Sultan, Chypre Rouge and Fille en Aiguilles

    Probably my favorite SL-- and it's impossible to find in the US-- is Encens et Lavande. I wish they'd make that an export for a limited time. It would sell like crazy. Beautiful stuff.

    Many wonderful, crazy stuff in serge lutens line. It really boils down to preference.

    Iris Silver Mist, Borneo, Chene, MKK, Tubereuse Criminelle, Fille en Aiguilles and Fumerie Turque are the ones I appreciate the most. From the ones I've tried.

    1. Tuberose Criminelle - Although too femme for me to wear, I LOVE the topnotes.
    2. Borneo 1834 - wonderfully "boardroom", yet still every bit as gourmand as A8men.

    Chergui, Gingembre, and Arabie are nice too.

    Sadly, I have only tried 2 SL. I really liked Feminite Du Bois.

    I want to try: La Myrrhe, Un Bois Vanille, De Profundis, Ambre Sultan..and many others.

    So far I haven't liked any of the ~20 Lutens I have smelled. Much too heavy, thick, and opaque for my taste.

    From the handful I've been able to try, I liked most of the SL line however, Daim Blond was a stand out for me.

    I would love to try MKK and Ambre Sultan.

    It's seems the more 'popular' ones (as listed above) are harder to locate in Sydney

  42. #42

    Default Re: Your favourite Serge Luten...

    Cuir Mauresque and Fumerie Turque are my favorites.

    Chene is a very interesting boozy/woody composition best worn on cold days. I don't recall much of Ambre Sultan (time to resample), and while I liked Chergui, it felt too loud, spicy and sweet to wear in most situations. Borneo 1834 is a great, richer alternative to Coromandel.

    I'm hoping to try 5 O'Clock Gingembre, MKK, Bois et Violettes and Fille en Aiguilles soon.

    I have also been getting into Cuir Mauresque lately - it finally turned up here with a couple of the new ones and I was really pleasantly surprised - I like the L'Heure Bleue touch up front. I haven't tried any Paris exclusives but favourites from the export line: Filles en Aiguilles, Chergui, Daim Blond, Fumerie Turque and Arabie (which I only wear at Xmas but is such a unique classic).

    I'd fallen in love with my sample of it-- the way it goes on so industrial and heavy with styrax and floral notes-- then starts to warm to a golden glow of soft smooth ambery sweet leather. I got my bottle today and spraying it for the first time, I was surprised to see how quickly these industrial notes disappeared-- and I was a little bit saddened by that. Still, going from dab to spray and back to dab, it's common for perceptions to change a bit.

    I completely love Cuir Mauresque. Wearing my sample was a strange experience. One day I dabbed some on and walked by a coworker and I swear I heard a "phew" that one would hear if somebody forgot to take a shower-- but then a few minutes later, a few different female coworkers noticed it and gave me compliments telling me it was the best cologne I've ever worn. I think some scents are like that; Antaeus is one; Some people perceive it as funky and unpleasant, while others find it to be a turn-on.

    I guess the civet and cumin in Cuir Mauresque scare me a little precisely because I don't really detect either one strongly. I think I wear this one pretty well, but I hope I don't put anyone off by wearing it to work. I got a few wrinkled noses when I wore Chypre Rouge and Arabie-- I swear cumin/curry is my worst enemy because I don't really perceive it to be nasty and BO-ish the way others do. But when I wear scents with this note, people don't always react positively.

    I find Cuir Mauresque really only has that strong curry accord for the first 20 minutes.
    Then it goes sweetly leathery.
    Then, after a good 8 or so hours it gets really dirty.

    Love it.
