Dubbed by many as the “The best tobacco perfume”, Chergui by Serge Lutens’s intricate composition makes it difficult to replicate. Emanating the nuances of the desert wind, the fragrance opens up with a dry rose along with hints of carnal honey and tonka bean. The citrussy opening is followed by the punchy tobacco notes that’s abetted by the incense note and subtle grassy touches. The robust presence of hay only adds to the whimsy that wonderfully balances itself when the base notes of sandalwood kick in. Our impression - Velvet Ember - avoids the common mistake of duplicating it. Instead, we offer our interpretation to this exquisite perfume.
