by March It's been awhile since I annoyed readers with a quote from Perfumes: The Guide, so here's one for today, regarding Serge Lutens, taken (and condensed) from Luca Turin's review of El Attarine: I detect in many of the recent Lutens fragrances a growing impatience, a rising tone of...

) Long story short, I respect Serge Lutens from a distance, but the house's aesthetic just doesn't fit me. On the other hand, Nuit de Cellophane sounded like the type of sweet floral that usually appeals to me, and if it turned out to be a non-Serge-like scent, as many diehard Lutensians...

Serge Lutens will launch De Profundis, the latest addition to the exclusive range, in September. The fragrance was reportedly inspired by death, and named for an prose letter written by Oscar Wilde in prison. De Profundis is a floral unisex fragrance based on chrysanthemum; other notes...

Here you see my very own Serge Lutens collection. is one of my favourites. We spoke French during the interview and I have to admit that there is something so magical about his French language that any attempt to translate his answers into English almost fails to fully capture their...

Serge Lutens is nothing if not a man of surprises. Don't be surprised when his fragrances turn out to be the same. Bottle: A rectangular glass vial; filled with liquid the colour of a donut's jammy filling, or something more sinister. Fragrance notes: Gingerbread, gunpowder, tangerine,...
