Serge Lutens

French born in 1942, Serge Lutens forged a career in fashion and photography and became an artistic director for Christian Dior in 1967. To instant applause, his first enigmatic perfume, "Nombre Noir", was created 1982 for Shiseido, the Japanese cosmetics house. He conceived the "Les Salons du Palais Royal", the showcase in Paris for his own scents, in the early 1990's.


In a recent interview, Serge commented that his first ever perfume was too tame. "They told me this couldn't be done, or that couldn't be done...so I was simply not brave enough" he says, a comment that certainly sets the tone for his huge
output of now extremely distinctive creations, that for others, less brave, "could not be done".

Now living in Marrakech, Morocco, Serge's flights of oriental fantasy that dominate his collection continually draw upon the sounds, sights and smells of the enchanting "Red City" as well as his earliest childhood memories.

I believe that from the age of eight everything is done - that is to say, everything is filed away. The rest is to be remembered. After this age of reason...what we have seen, what we have loved, it is all the same. These memories are found. Creation for me is not an idea. Ideas are nothing...

...One doesn't make perfume uniquely from raw materials. A perfume is a composition of the mind, it's a personal experience, unexpected. It's not created in accord with society - it should be something that expresses a different view...
