"Traveler in time" - an expression that could very well define Serge Lutens. He is also an architect of dreams, for it is indeed as an architect that Serge Lutens has constructed for more than 30 years an oeuvre with a style so powerful, it opens us up to a new world - or rather, worlds. It is as a visionary that he details an extraordinary olfactive universe for which he imagined, down to the smallest detail, Les Salons du Palais Royal, a veritable jewel box dedicated to the perfumery of Serge Lutens.
Serge Lutens reveals through his perfumes the essence of the myths that populate our dreams and live in our imagination. His creations are neither reconstitutions nor dependent on ancient formulas. Instead, Serge Lutens captures the spirit of perfume, combining in subtle harmony the rarest, most authentic essences. He constructs a universe of perfumes that is liberated from conventions and explores forgotten territories, territories abandoned by contemporary perfumery.

-- Serge Lutens

Serge Lutens - Sa Majeste la Rose Eau de Parfum - 50 ml
This fragrance, just like the rose whose petals have a soft and dreamy texture, is refined and delicate.

Serge Lutens - Tubereuse Criminelle Eau de Parfum - 50 ml
SPECIAL EDITION RELEASE!

Serge Lutens - Vitriol d’Oeillet Eau de Parfum - 50 ml
No more ghostly than a train, nor more sudden than death, nor quicker than the opening of a grave, my vitriol is distilled from carnations. After a moment of hesitation, the carnation – alias the clove pink – is what I am in every sense: this fragrance fraught with anger is my riposte. Its petals, laced with
tiny teeth, hold out the solution: a burst of fragrant spikes. Would it make you smile to know that the wallflower packs a real fragrant punch, that the pepper comes from Cayenne and that the scent of cloves lies deep within this composition? Yet the carnation is an obsessive and intrepid flower.
Serge Lutens - Jeux de Peau Eau de Parfum - 50 ml
Jeux de Peau is a "play on skin" as well as the senses. It's a warm and comforting scent that explores a palette of notes drawn from Serge Lutens' childhood memories: coffee, crème brûlée, licorice and warm baguettes. A remedy for solitude. Warm, freshly-baked bread.
A return to the essentials...
A breathe of pure, embracing mountain air...
A sensation of freshness that lasts for hours...
Pure, clean and fresh with notes of clarysage, white mint and a trace of magnolia

The name "Bas de Soie" came to Mr. Lutens "...lightly, like a whisper. It was not a product of reflection and cogitation but, as sometimes happens, the obvious choice.

"South Morocco. Miniature tornadoes improvise a ballet, dancing across the sands, roll, turn and then vanish. They usher in the Chergui, a dry wind from the East. Round and full, its persistent gusts crystallize the flora. Trees, bushes and berries crackle, dissolve and render their final ransom; the unknown treasures, saps, resins, essences. Night descends on a still burning memory, leaving a wake of fragrant aromas: of amber, spice, cooked fruit, created by the alchemist, Chergui."
- Serge Lutens
