An ink,
A choice
made in the first person,
The dot on the I,
A weapon,
A courteous gesture,
Pat of the instant,
A consequence.

  1. Thank you for “reminding” me of Serge Lutens. Sometimes in one’s busy life, one forgets all those things from one’s past that were inspirational and got one to the present moment. As a child, this designer was in awe of so many advertisements from the 70’s and 80’s, and I remember vividly the sharp, sleek world that Shiseido projected. Looks like I have another coffee table book in my future!

  2. A year ago, at Bergdorf Goodman, I tried on a mixture of “Daim Blond” and “Amber Sultan.” It was a dream come true perfume to me. You’ve reminded me why I still hope to afford it someday. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention.

  3. stunning, legendary.

  4. incredible work.

  5. Serge Lutens ia a great artist and i love his fragrances, but those pictures are awesome!

  6. I’ve always loved the elusive Serge Lutens imagery and scents – he is a very complete artist. I remember reading somewhere that he knew the instant a woman walked into his Palais Royal boutique if she should be there or not… I think those images and make up are not about transformation, but about revelation.
