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."
Why we're addicted: It's botanical composition is of Hyacinth, Iris and a mix of grass. Sensual, Elegance and Surrounding.
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, the man behind the brand, is considered an artistic legend with creative endeavours that include photography, filmmaking, perfume art-direction and fashion.

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
