Serge Lutens

It was through his creation of Féminité du bois and Les Salons du Palais Royal in 1992 with their dreamlike décor, that Serge Lutens led his first true olfactory revolution in the field of perfume.

Fragrances like Ambre sultan, Tubéreuse criminelle, Cuir mauresque… have since become indispensable, writing a new page in the History of Fragrances.

The logical culmination of this came in 2000 when Serge Lutens created the brand that today bears his name and establishes his uncompromising style. Perfumes and makeup (“Nécessaire de beauté”), his expressions in this area, are marketed through specialised and selective distribution and more confidentially at the Palais Royal-Serge Lutens. His innovations in this field have received many prestigious awards, including several FIFI awards from the Fragrance Foundation.

As the stories goes, Lutens, who had yet to launch his Salons du Palais Royal line, dragged the Shiseido and Quest teams to Marrakech to make them understand just...

Serge Noir

Price ZAR990.00

* Box Damaged or Missing Serge was used to make cassocks and school smocks. It is a twill weave whose name has since been given to the man who dedicated himself to all things feminine. An ethereal woodiness with a smoky sillage, therein lies its ambiguity.
