"The Nun". Serge Lutens has a habit of visiting his childhood for memories and invocations. She is of course dressed in black and white. So are we pairing the innocent, virginal white jasmine flowers with the dirty, dark and carnal animalic notes of civet and musk? Is it saints and sinners? Well, there's more than a religious nod there too with the underlying incense. But of course, a "Religieuse" in French is also a choux pastry cake, perhaps another favourite memory of childhood.

Letting all symbolism wash over us, this fragrance is actually a very wearable and highly desirable musky floral. The jasmine is sweet and fresh and the musk, civet, incense undertones provide just the right amount of contrast to balance the creation beautifully. Another Serge masterpiece.
