Serge Lutens – Chergui

Perfume: Chergui
Perfumer: Serge Lutens
Source: Swap – Coconut
Size: 2mL

Perfume Court Notes:honey, musk, incense, tobacco leaf, hay, sugar, amber, iris, rose and sandalwood

Date: 4/30/08 Weather: 46 degrees, sunny, breezy

Comments: Starts green and powdery. In 15 minutes, develops a creamy vanilla syrup note with the green and powder. My allergies are bothering me so I’m not able to pick up much more detail than that. I can tell I smell pretty. About 90 minutes later – picking up lotion and incense notes along with some green and the creamy vanilla syrup. In 2.5 hours – goes woody and very faint. Fades in and out for the next 6 hours – mostly as a skin scent. I need to smell this when the nose is up to speed.

Date: 11/24/08 Weather: 45 degrees, damp, evening

Comments: Tobacco and hay with a spicy note. I can now see what the fuss is about. Some green, very little powder – almost snuff-like.

Date: 1/5/09 Weather: 43 degrees, clear, evening

Comments: Tobacco and hay, green, spices and vanilla. Really catching the incense on this wearing – particularly at the 45 minute mark. Also significantly sweeter this time – especially on the drydown. Holds up nicely in smoky areas. Gone the next morning.
