Fragrance News: Chergui Added to Export Range

If you are like me, i.e. a fan of Serge Lutens Chergui, a honeyed composition of spices, tobacco and iris, then the news of it being added to the export range should make you stop craving citruses. Escentual, a UK based site, will have the fragrance available from mid September. (from escentual news.)

  • Victoria: I especially like the fact that now I can have an oblong sprayer bottle, because I do not like dabbing. I will not have to decant it into small sprayer bottles anymore. July 26, 2005 at 8:48am Reply

  • Felicia: Hi V –

    I always think of you as a ‘floral’ gal. Do tell me why you favor Chergui so much. I am intrigued. BTW – thank you for the news. I wonder how much longer the exclusive range will remain *exclusive*. Do you know the last time he released an *exclusive* fragrance?? It seems that most of the latest releases have been for export.

  • MC: Chene is an exclusive, released September last year. Borneo 1834 is the latest addition to the exclusive range: It will be available this autumn.

    I haven’t been counting 🙂 but I make that one exclusive, two international and one exclusive bumped to international each year. That’s a lot of perfume! July 26, 2005 at 10:36am Reply

  • Victoria: Hello F and M!

    I do love my florals, especially jasmine and tuberose, but dark compositions appeal to me too. Maybe, it is because I have always loved learning of the Middle Eastern history, reading Persian poetry, studying Persian art. My stepmother is Azeri, from Baku. I have not traveled much in the Middle East though, with the most East I have been being India, Central Asia and Turkey. At any rate, I find Lutens’ fascinating with the Middle East very appealing, because in some ways it mirrors mine. Chergui smells like honey over tobacco leaves about to be wrapped for paan, with a whiff of dark smoky tea leaves and warm skin. It always changes on my skin, which I like. I never know what to expect from it. One thing is true–it is a scent to wear when temperatures go down. I am not strong enough to bear it in the summer, nor would I want to inflict it on anyone else right now.

    The last time Lutens released an exclusive fragrance was in 2004, Chene. The next one will be Borneo 1834, in November. I do agree that releases for export have been more common, but it is a good thing in my book. 🙂

    Mike, yes, that’s a lot of perfume. However, you will not hear me complaining! July 26, 2005 at 10:43am Reply

  • mreenymo: Hooray! Finally an SL that I like in the export range! Could Rahat and TC be far behind? :):)

  • Victoria: I would love to have Tubereuse Criminelle too! Tired of having to carry an armload of those large bottles from Paris. xoxo July 26, 2005 at 11:35am Reply

  • mreenymo: My darling, if I could be so lucky as to have an armload of those beautiful bottles…and from Paris no less. :):) I would love to be in your predicament! July 26, 2005 at 12:18pm Reply

  • Victoria: LOL! Yes, it is hardly a predicament, but can be if you like to travel light like I do. However, I can bear just about anything for Lutens! July 26, 2005 at 12:31pm Reply
