Sadly my skin broke in a little bumps/acne in areas I usually don't have any issue with impefections. So I can only attribute it to this. I stopped using it and my skin seemed to return to normal.
Smells like a hot sweaty tropical jungle....and dung! The last SL sample I tried was Sarrasins and that also had a strong "toilet" smell to it. Lets just say I'm no longer that impressed with Mr Luten. I appreciate the craft that he puts in and I also respect him for trying new approaches to perfume. But he can't be serious this one. Stay well away ladies.
Reminds me of chewy gellatin candy you get in the UK. Nice and sweet but why would I pay $$$ for a perfume that smells so cheap?
Bleugh...metallic medicine smell. Instand heachache. Not for me!
Very similar to Un Jardin Sur Le Nil which I love. Fresh summery and very expensive!
Liked this at first but after a week it smelt quite cheap and sickening to me.

Nothing special. It does seperate lashes and gives a long flirty look but does nothing for volume or thickness. No clumping which was a plus but just doesn't feel like its worth the money.
Feels to me like they stopped working on it half way through and said "good enough, they'll buy it anyway". This could have been a beautiful perfume but its a sorry excuse for a chanel fragrance. Lasting power is non existant, dissapears have 10 minutes.
On the fence with this, its very hard too describe fragrance. Its dense, modern and does have a certain uniqueness, but still not a classic. I wouldn't put this in my favourites list but I might pick it up again at future time to try again.
Wish I hadn't spent so much time tracking down a sample of this. Generic 90s perfume, not worth anyones time. Smells like any cheap drugstore scent.
First sptiz is a lovely sweet vanilla but very quickly dries down to just an "okay" smelling scent. Not much strength to it either.
I love the original Opium but this a even stronger version than. Really not worth the bother.

Sorry to ruin the perfect 5 lippy score, but I found this really dull and ordinary. Far to weak a scent to bother with.
Vetiver normaly gives me an instant heachache, its too sharp and maculine. I found this to much easier to wear and less heady than regular vetivers. Its a lovely fragrance but for the price of a Serge Luten I expect something that will really wow me. I can't justify the price for something thats just "nice".
Whenever I read about long discontinued fragances that are still talked about and people fight on ebay for a rare bottle, it can't help but spark my interest. I got a hold of a sample and was very excited to try it. But...meh, this is just a pretty boring floral oriental fragrance. Theres nothing offensive about it, its just dull and forgettable.
