This is my compliment getter. Rather my comment getter. I always get asked what I'm wearing when I have this on (usually only December to March, definitely a cold-weather scent for me) I suppose...

Chergui has been my go-to evening scent for many years now. When I was young, in the mid to late 80s, my mother wore Obsession. I mean, she WORE Obsession. She piled it on in the summer months,...

This gives me terrible headaches. It is very sweet with strong tobacco notes. Quite a unique scent, but isn't for me.

I bought a decant of this first because some reviewers said this smelled like moroccanoil which I love. And it does so I bought a whole bottle. I don't need much and this is definitely a winter...

Thanks to a generous sample at Sephora, I've been wearing this for a couple of days now. I like it but it's a little too sweet for me in the end. I smell amber (which I don't like normally, but...

I love this scent! Nothing gathers more compliments than this for me. Amber, honey, hay...deliciously sweet and spicy notes. One tip: try to find the old version made by palais royal du shiseido...

Mmmmm this is so divine. I adore this one. On me it is all sweet warm tobacco with a hint of honey....rich amber, a bit of powdery iris, a mixing of incense and hay and a teeny bit of Sandalwood....

I have been sampling a generous decant of this over the past few days, and I must sadly report that I am underwhelmed. Is body chemistry really so different that a lush symphony of scent on one...

Note: I find Andy Tauers Vanilla Flash- Tauerville in rollerball format more coherent, less acrid powdery, less cloyingly sweet, easier to wear than either Fumerie Turque (vanilla flash is...

Sadly, I have no idea what a real marketplace in Morocco smells like, but in my westerner's mind's eye, somewhat in the vein of the orientalist paintings of the 19th century, Serge Lutens Chergui...

I really wanted to love this fragrance; however, Chergui was a major disappointment. The pleasant opening smells like Avon Skin So Soft and conjures up childhood memories. After five minutes, the...

I just could not get down with this fragrance. It smelled like Skin-So-Soft on me and nothing more, which to me, translates to cheap. I read other reviews that said it got better with time, but I...

I was given a sample of this at Barney's in Scottsdale and I was exceptionally skeptical because Lutens can be a bit over the top, and not in a good way. This spicy, leathery, creamy and very...

Complex, intelligent, evocative, smouldering, desirable, exotic, deep. That's what I smell like to me when wearing this fragrance. And my husband wanted to bed me straight away. Chergui is...

Drat. This sounded completely like something I would love, but on me it carried the dreaded over-sweet baby-powder note. Bugged me enough that I washed it off. Won't dissuade me from trying more...

Oh my...not fruity, suh-WEET, sugary, powdery, flowery, girly or nice in any fashion. This is not pastel, pink, floral, eyelet, or ankle socks. Chergui is a WOMAN'S scent. You'd better be a...

Such an interesting fragrance. A few weeks ago a friend of mine smelled delicious, a mix of roses, smoke and vanilla so I had to ask her what she was wearing. She told me that she had also smelt...
