So many other Serge Lutens fans here...terrific! What's everyone's favorite? Or would this go in the Etc Etc of Perfumes, Fragrances thread?

I currently smell very natural, from gym, not too appealing...in a bit I'll wear Christian Lacroix and Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental.

Good idea for a new thread!

I seem to wear Fumerie Turque the most... but I also love Cuir Mauresque and Muscs Koublaï Khan.

Lutens/Sheldrake are the Jagger/Richards of fragrance.

If you were to give the lovely gift of one of Serge Lutens' fragrances, to start someone off which would you give?

Ohhh... I adore Serge Lutens scents, they are all so distinctive...

I have fallen hard for Chêne, I believe that scent is simply tailor-made for me.

I am wearing it right now..

I got Barneys newest beauty catalogue today. *Sigh* I want everything but three pages in, a page for two new Serge Lutens fragrances.
Serge Noire
Truly original, a fragrance of twilight with mysterious notes of amber, laurel, leather, cistis labdanum and resinous smoke.

Borneo 1834
Indonesian patchouli, still as startling as when it first arrived in the West, mixed with cardamom, incense, cocoa and rosewood.

I'm not too big on patchouli, though I do have one or two fragrances with it in it..but I want the Serge Noire!

mmm! think i read something positive about serge noire on basenotes. borneo 1834 sounds like it would be a little more polarizing, but incense and cardamom!

side question: does anyone know of any warm, vanillic shampoos and conditioners? i love amber-y, oriental, smoky, leathery scents and wish i didn't have to "interrupt them" with the soapy/shampooey smell of my hair. that said, i like my hair to smell good. how do you avoid "clashing"?

Borneo 1834 is really nice; the patchouli is not sweet and heavy, but herbal and aromatic. The combination of cocoa and patchouli is interesting!

I haven't worn Noire so can't comment on it.

demimondaine, I like Lush's Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo; I find that the smell of it complements the amber-y, oriental smoky leathery scents very nicely!

as much of a beauty addict as I am, I have never heard of them.

Does anyone want to recommend me something?

I only have 3 SL samples and only love A La Nuit - but I am a jasmine lover! The other two I am not a huge fan of - Arabie and Daim Blond. I especially disappointed with DB... I think I will try Fumerie Turque, Serge Noire and Un Lys whenever I can get a chance
