Santal Majuscule - Noire Collection - Eau de Parfum
Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule is built around a creamy note of sandalwood, which smells of warm milk and dried roses. Sandalwood is a striking perfume note full of contrasts, and Lutens, in collaboration with perfumer Christopher Sheldrake, treats it as both a wood and a flower.
Santal Majuscule unfolds on the skin in layers of crimson roses, lightly dusted with chocolate. As the roses soften over time, the sandalwood takes over. What started out as another Arabian Night fantasy now feels tender and serene, a caressing cashmere wrap. The classical slender rectangular bottle has an understated elegance. Its simplicity belies the intricate fragrance it contains -- a dream in a bottle.
