Serge Lutens, the man behind the brand, is considered an artistic legend with creative endeavours that include photography, filmmaking, perfume art-direction and fashion. Serge Lutens draws inspiration from many sources, from his beloved Marrakesh, where he lives part of the year, to literary and visual descriptions of fragrances that move him.
His exclusive boutique Les Salons du Palais Royal, in Paris is considered by many to be the most beautiful perfumery in the world.
"A unique place in the world where one would come as an enlightened being to define oneself through one's perfume, in order to stand out from the identity-free crowd which previous times had imposed upon us." - Serge Lutens
Gris Clair Eau de Parfum
"Like pollen blowing over a lifeless city.
As grey as ashes floating through a sky of sunbeams.
Lavender, then, to add grey to clarity, I added incense. I'm crazy about it! In every sense, incense makes sense to my senses."
Bapteme du Feu Eau de Parfum
Bapteme du feu the visual shows a shooting gallery, which for monsieur lutens is a reference to the atmosphere of the local fair and his memories of the funfair in northern France: the stalls, the smell of gingerbread, marshmallow and sugar.
It is a gourmand fragrance with a joyful, carefree side (the sweetness and gentleness of childhood).
L'eau Froide Eau de Parfum
L'eau froide is true to its function: icy on application, this Eau keeps its cool.
The spectral quality of its intangible aura serves to magnify this impression. The sensation of cold fulfills the promise of the name L'eau froide, lingering on a breath of air.
L'eau Laine de Verre Eau de Parfum
A confrontation with its other half. It is clear: There is rivalry, but if this eau is the result of a conflict, it is still no less pure.
A disagreement between femininity and masculinity does not mean a breach; it shatters and a necessary condition for every task becomes an agreement
In this way, it is only after he had been penetrated by the winter that, laying down his arms, the Lord of Glass came to place at the feet of the Lady of Wool flowers and ferns which had frosted on him.
L'Orpheline Eau de Parfum
"Fragile but whole. Its name hints at a break but before the fissures show, its first two syllables conjure Orpheus, a poet who could charm even stones."
-- Serge Lutens
La Fille de Berlin Eau de Parfum
She's a girl who goes to extremes.
When she can, she soothes; and when she wants ... !

Santal Majuscule Eau de Parfum
Sandalwood written in capital letters, full scale and life sized!
Oboedi silentiis meis non imperii: "Do not obey my orders, obey my silence."
Turning powdery under the influence of bitter cacao, the sandalwood plunges deep into a velvety trap.
Vitriol d'Oeillet Eau de Parfum
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.
Jeux de Peau Eau de Parfum
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.
L'eau Serge Lutens
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 clary sage, white mint and a trace of magnolia
Bas de Soie Eau de Parfum

Its Character: Sensual, Elegance and Surrounding.
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. If I dared, I would even go so far as to say that it slipped into my mind. And once that happened, no other name seemed right for the fragrance."
Fille en Aiguilles Eau de Parfum Haute Concentration

The swirls of oriental grey enrich the twilight with depth and intensity while windswept memories hint at the beauty of transformation. An ode to everlasting beauty under cover of night's rich plumage"
- Serge Lutens

Fleurs d'Oranger Eau de Parfum
