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).

I appreciate the quick shipping and great packaging on this sample. Thank you! The perfume is really lovely, but probably a bit too powdery for me.
I love Scent Split. My two samples came with no issues in a nice little box. The fragrances are legit and didn’t smell like they were knockoffs (based on my own Nordstrom strolls and testing). They label the fragrances and offer a good portion of sizes to make owning some of the best fragrances easier on the pocket. If you’re a collector with multiple items then 30ml even 10, will go a long way.
My only con is the atomizers. I would really love for them to upgrade the atomizer game and use some standard ones. Even if they used cheap atomizers that were thicker and wouldn’t buckle easily, that would still be better. My chergui bottle has a small buckle in it which alters the full spray. I have to finesse it, and/or use the atomizer from my Creed Origina Santal sample. I would have given 5 stars otherwise. I still highly recommend them!!!
I really like the fangrance. It fits well nto the family of Oriental scents and has a subtle Tobacco base and rich spice notes.
The scent is very pleasant but it didn’t have the sillage or longevity that I was expecting. The last time I wore it I put on more than 10 sprays and Chergui was a distant memory two hours later.
