The mystique of frankincense; in L’orpheline, the many shades of grey symbolise his break with the past and the stripping away of the layers of the fine dust which veil his memories.
"Fragile but whole. Its name hints at a break but before the fissures show, its first two syllable conjure Orpheus, a poet who could charm even stones." Serge Lutens
A perfume line created by Serge Lutens in his own image. Minimalist, straight lined, angular and uncompromising, each of these bottles with their refined style reflects the exacting nature and character of their creator. A sobriety which enhances the richness and sumptuousness of the perfumes, whose scents and colours are as numerous and as nuanced as precious stones and our personalities.
In his now iconic olfactory creations, the perfumer Serge Lutens has for over 20 years been producing strong alcohols with Proustian accents. From “Féminité du bois”, to “Ambre sultan” and “La fille de Berlin”, each perfume tells their own exceptional story and has their own unique signature. Perhaps even yours?

Serge Lutens is an iconic figure in the world of perfume, coiffure, cosmetics, photography and style. Now, tireless and still revolutionary at nearly 80, he has dominated the world of cutting edge fashion since the 1960s. These were the heady days when he took Vogue magazine by storm and created maquillage for Christian Dior; then later for Shiseido. In 2000 he launched his own luxury perfume line which revolutionised the concept of niche perfumery.
Modest, enigmatic, elusive Serge has lived for decades in Marrakech, city of his inspirations and obsessions.
