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...

Imagine! Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau Eau de Parfum (definitely unisex, decent sillage, long lasting on skin) is $120 for 50 ml; for buying information, see the listing for Serge Lutens under Perfume Houses. Note: top bread images (pain au levain, brioche, and boule, all altered) via...

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...

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...

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...

) 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,...

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...

If you'd handed it to me in another bottle I'd never think it was a Lutens at all, certainly not one that's "a burst of fragrant spikes" that's "fraught with anger". It's the Lutens for people who don't like Lutens, and I'll pass. $140 at Aedes and LuckyScent, shortly to be at Barneys as...
