Serge Lutens La Vierge de Fer is the exclusive launch from Lutens for 2013, Here is the (always amusing) background information from the company:Let there be light! And darkness no more. He who wishes does not have a black soul! “I will come as a thief …” said Christ; certainly in silence and probably, for him, wearing shoes. To deserve his title, the Thief must act under the wide-open eye of the absent owners. In this case, it is not that tenuous eye with which Cain stares without regret, but another, which in some way will make an accomplice of Abel. If the fetishes, idols and charms of the Museum of Man, in Paris, had not met the 20th century, everyone would have missed that incredible mockery of Eros which The Young Ladies of Avignon certainly is. “The Negros had understood that everything which surrounds us is our enemy”, the wizard Picasso said to his paintbrush. Who, if not one of them, decided on life, by death, would dare, to unclench the teeth of this sex of the world: fear. Since it is the fruit of our entrails, it must be elevated. For that, not fearing incest, we will embrace it. In this way, she will give birth to our most beautiful monsters. That is how, a little rusty by dint of doubts, my steps have rejoined La vierge de fer (the Iron Maiden); that lily amongst the thorns.

Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule features notes of sandalwood, honey, cocoa, spices and Arabian attar rose. Santal Majuscule is described as a study of sandalwood but it's different from other Lutens' sandalwood scents in that it is not the overtly masculine sandalwood of Santal Mysore nor the softly sweet santal blanc - but a tender gourmand sandalwood; honeyed, slightly fruity, sweetly spiced, with rose attar and cocoa.

The swirls of oriental grey enrich the twilight with depth and intensity while windswept memories hint at the beauty of transformation. An ode to everlasting beauty under cover of night's rich plumage"...Serge Lutens
Tubereuse Criminelle has got to be the most talked about Serge Lutens fragrance of all. I hesitate to even try to describe it because it's so odd and wonderful its simply an enigma.
The description from the Serge Lutens website is simply this:
"The carnal and intense fragrance of the tuberose"
Tubereuse Criminelle is an experience. It begins with whiffs of gasoline, menthol and rubber (really, it does). Eventually these oddball notes give way to the most beautiful and ethereal tuberose ever created. We've noticed that for those who love Tubereuse Criminelle they usually report that they've begun to adore the very strange beginning...
Notes are black tea, rosewood, bergamot, cedar, oakmoss, vanilla, amber, sandalwood, and musk.
Tubereuse Criminelle is in the exclusive range, not available in the United States.
