Brand Serge Lutens
Chergui is named for the dry, desert wind that tears through Morocco in summer and brings life to a standstill. Like all of Lutens’ magnificent scent creations, Chergui is high art captured in a bottle, a magical elixir that can instantly turn the most elegant of wearers into slavish wrist sniffers. It’s everything you’d wish for from a perfume named after a legendary wind…sandalwood with a touch of hot incense, honeyed leather and tobacco leaf, it’s quite sweet yet dry, spiced and mysterious. No wimpy, cloying flowers or sticky, humid sugar here – Chergui is full bodied and complex and has a sweet spiciness that’s miles away from something girlish or cute. It’s true poetry in a perfume… a hot and breathtaking fragrance that’s not tame and not at all familiar (and oh-so-gorgeous because of it).
honey, musk, incense, tobacco leaf, hay sugar, amber, iris, rose and sandalwood
The opening is a strong Hay- powder smell but the dry down is nice. On my skin I smell amber-vanilla-Tobacco- honey-incense. I didn't like it the first 2 times I wore it, but it has grown on me and now I like it. No more than 2 sprays!
Baby powder but a black licorice pipe tobacco kinda way, masculine seductive and unisex
Baby Powder ... Yuck... Oh but wait.. The dry down is beautiful. So the initial baby powder almost had me curse the reviews... but shortly after, say about 15 minutes it becomes a masterpiece. So I hate and Love this fragrance. 5 sprays will last me about 5 hours. It is one of those fragrances you need to get your nose on before purchasing.
If Johnson's baby oil had a smoky smell to it, you could confuse it with Chergui.
