    Ambre Sultan or Five O'Clock au Gingembre

    Personally, I find Ambre Sultan to be the more versatile of the two.

    Sarrasins (and) or De Profundis.

    I'd ditch the Chergui, to be honest and add El Attarine in there instead.

    Chėne, it is one of the most uplifting scent from the line and also very versatile.

    Smell like oak and rum.

    Chene (if you can find it). One of my favorite that is highly underrated is Un Bois Sepia.

    I tried online at Barney's.com, but it is no longer available. I'll try calling the store (or better yet have my friend pick me up a bottle and send it it me). Thanks for the tip!

    For a second Lutens, different from Chergui, my vote for Arabie (fruity, bitter, herbal) in the export, or Sarrasins (leathery jasmine) in the exclusive.
    But really, the choice is hard, there are so many good ones.

    and the mighty

    Vetiver Oriental

    Nobody masters sweet scents like Lutens does.

    Default Re: Two picks from Serge Lutens

    Fille en Aiguielle or Chene.....Serge Noir if you want something challenging but rewarding

    probably my favorite house, but I don't like Arabie that much

    But even the ones I don't like are fun to try

    Sarrasins and La Myrrhe are my personal choices but they're not for everyone

    Yeah, same with Fumerie Turque - it's a good one, but good luck finding it anywhere. I've been on the hunt for this one for a few months now... :-(
