Fille En Aiguilles

Christopher Sheldrake

for Serge Lutens

2009

Pine needles, Vetiver, Sugary Sap, Laurel, Fir Balsam, Frankincense, Candied fruit and Spice - Rich, resinous woods, lively incense and deeply hued fruits encrusted with sugars and saps. And all this enclosed in a rain of freshly dropped pine needles. This scent makes even the air seem edible.

Structure

Emphatic perfume which wastes no time flirting with the wearer, drops directly to the forest  floor and lies face down in a heady mix of woods, foliage and sappy greenness. Not for the timid.
