Rumour had it that Serge Lutens was preparing to launch a new fragrance based on almond. Well the rumour has been confirmed, together with the announcement of yet another creation to be also expected in the fall, in September of 2007. One is named Louve (She-Wolf), which centers on a soft balm-like bitter almond note "white like a snow castle atop a mountain". The other one is a velvet-like floral called Sarrasins (Saracens) inspired by Moresque culture and showcases a "petrifyingly beautiful jasmine, gloved in black ink the color of bats."......
Sarrasins will be exclusive to the Palais Royal Shiseido while Louve will be available in the export range in department stores and exclusive perfumeries.
Louve High Concentration edp will retail 95 Euros for 50 ml. Sarrasins edp will retail 105 Euros for 75 ml.
In other news, Moscovites will rejoice to learn that a Serge Lutens corner will open at the Tsum in July of 2007.
