Smelled up close, L'Eau Froide is an enjoyable twist on a unisex summer fragrance, and it probably has enough heft to take it into spring or fall as well. It's clean, but it isn't as relentlessly clean as L'Eau Serge Lutens. Still, from a distance, the early stages teeter dangerously close...

Lutens is trying to tell us (who is ever sure of that?) but there's a yearning in a language I don't speak, both lovely and maybe a little sorrowful. Bois de Jasmin's review referenced the same two Lutens scents I did; both these reviews are insightful. Do Ilike Jeux de Peau? I don't know....

Nuit de Cellophane was released by Serge Lutens in early 2009 as part of the brand's export collection. The press release for this fragrance includes a typically Lutensian snippet of prose-poetry and dialogue, but the sample-vial card offers a more concise description: "The night embodied in...

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...

Serge Lutens Vitriol d'Oeillet has decent lasting power and minimal sillage; I find it feminine in character. It is available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, $140. 1. See the Grain de Musc blog for an interesting explanation of this perfume's name and an interview with Serge Lutens re: Vitriol...

Like many of the Serge Lutens fragrances, Cuir Mauresque kicks off with a surprising note that offers a freaky insight into the rest of the fragrance. For Tubéreuse Criminelle , for instance, that note smells almost like gasoline, and once you've smelled it you see tuberose a whole...

Coming in February from Serge Lutens will be Jeux de Peau ("Skin Games"), a new unisex addition to the export range. What we know so far: it was inspired by the smell of toast with butter, a smell dear to Lutens' childhood, and it might be a woody oriental. According to Osmoz , the notes...

I personally like an open-faced sandalwood fragrance in my perfume 'arsenal' and Santal Majuscule doesn't qualify. Still, I enjoyed wearing Santal Majuscule and recommend it to those who want an "ornamented" sandalwood fragrance...accent on the ornaments, not the santal. Serge Lutens Santal...

Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we'll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. What Serge Lutens thinks it smells like: "L'Eau Froide gives you the...

) I didn't expect the Holiday-inspired fragrance by Serge Lutens, Une Voix Noire (a black voice), to have the impact of the iconic singer. Who knows what Holiday smelled like? I can only imagine the scents of cigarette smoke, booze, sweat, make-up and perfume that surrounded her in the warm,...
