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
A YouTuber convinced me to sample this after raving about how spicy this was but it fell flat for me. I don't hate it but I would probably only reach for it if it were a last option. It lacks the character I was hoping for. Kind of smells like a person after they walk out of a cigar lounge.
Very nice opening, pleasing sillage to the nose. The honey and incense works very well together in this one!
This scent is spicy and warm. Note it is too mature and a little heavy for daily wear thus might use sparingly .
