Christmas is near – exclamation mark! This year I will start buying presents extra early. I have a new strategy: I buy whatever I see and love and in the end I decide to whom I will give the selected pieces. The rest is for me. I guess this is a good strategy.
The first thing for my Santa bag is Serge Lutens‘ Le Vaporisateur tout noir. A puristic black metal travel atomizer. Until this year there were only refills of Féminité du Bois and Ambre Sultan available, now you can also buy Fourreau Noir and Iris Silver Mist. I hope there will be refills for all Serge Lutens perfumes as everyone loves another one.
Iris Silver Mist of course is fantastic. Amber and sandalwood soften the extremely earthy iris. After – I call it the ‚carrot stage‘ – the scent gets incredibly chic. In some iris perfumes the root just smells like carrots fresh from the garden. Some musk adds this je ne sais quoi, benzoin calms the scent even more down – et voilà. Somebody said that Iris Silver Mist smells aristocratic. Absolutely.
“A purse weapon – totally black – must be reloaded. And with what, if not perfume, the best way to trigger seduction?” Serge Lutens
Into the Santa bag it goes!
