    This. Smelled it on paper and was blown away. Managed to restrain myself from buying a bottle there and then. I settled for longer experimentation with a small decant instead.
    The ones I've tried so far are often a bit too sweet for me, but I've only really tried a small cross section.

    So far, a very tight competition for me between Ambre Sultan and Chypre Rouge

  11. #11

    Default Re: your favourite scent from Serge Lutens?

    Between Borneo and Fille en Aiguilles for me... beautiful use of Patchouli in the former and a brilliant Frankincense in the latter; they'll both be seeing some action over the next couple of months.

    Sheldrake is a great perfumer, but I rarely wear anything from this house anymore.

    I usually prefer most of these on other people:

    Rose de Nuit
    Sarrasins
    Bois de Violette
    La Myrrhe
    Muscs Koublai Khan
    Ambre Sultan
    Tubereuse Criminelle

    Lately I love to wear Chergui, though. Goes great with the cold, crisp outdoors and good cigars. Same with Cuir Mauresque.

    Right. I became a little bored with Iris Silver Mist, and prefer the older Feminite du Bois, but it's hard not to include them. Excellent fragrances.

    Too many to count, but Cuir Mauresque, Fumerie Turque and Chergui are up there.

    Second to these are Bois de Violette and Vitriol d'Oiellet.

    I've only ever tried Ambre Sultan, Fleurs d'Oranger and Un Bois Vanille, but AS is definitely one of my all-time favourite scents, so it wins by a long shot.

    Tubereuse Criminelle... Followed by Fille En Aiguilles, Rose de Nuit, and Arabie... Then followed by a dozen or so other favorites.

    I've tried a bunch, and none were worth getting the wallet out for. many were nice in a generic sort of way,
    Fumerie Turque Nice tobacco fragrance, but I wouldn't buy it.
    Cuir Mauresque a SCRUBBER, smelled like a public lavatory.
    Arabie Too sweet
    Ambre Sultan generic smelling
    Chergui I had High hopes from all the hype Too much powder, Smelled like a teenage girl powder.
    Datura Noir Tuberose and floral, smelled nice, just too feminine for me to wear

    This is my favourite house. The variety and quality is amazing. They don't smell like 'any other' fragrance.
    I like the florals most. They are perfectly unisex and do excellent in the tropics.

    Fleurs d'Orange - orange blossoms
    Tubereuse Criminelle - tuberose
    Gris Clair - lavender

    There are many I haven't tried yet....but I think I will also like jasmine, rose...

    Fille en Aiguilles is another excellent fragrance. Not floral, but pine based.
