I'm challenging myself to wear only samples and decants of scents that I've never worn for over a few hours. So, today's fragrance is Serge Lutens Chergui thanks to the fabulous Barbatia!
Chergui is an oriental fragrance. The website says the following of Chergui: Chergui of the name of a dry and hot wind in Morocco. An elixar of honey, musk, skin, incense, tobacco leaf, hay sugar, amber, iris, rose, santalwood. Divine, magnificent, bewitching, fatal, lashing.
This is not a fragrance that I would typically wear but I find it incredibly haunting and sexy andI would find this equally nice if worn on a man. I could only envision myself wearing this during fall or winter because I'd be afraid it would be too heavy for spring or summer. But, this would make a very sexy fragrance on cooler nights when the weather is warmer!
Because Chergui is part of the exclusive range, it is only sold at the Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido
, decants and the occasional bottles are found on Ebay.
