Why We Love It:

The storytelling in Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens is pure perfection. It transports us to Marrakech with the exotic spices and deep, seductive resinous scents of the souks.

It’s comforting and inviting and very much one for a wearer that leans in to those luxurious orientals.

The dry-down is really where it’s at for me. It’s all about the golden, luxurious, warmth. It’s beyond beautiful.

What They Say

Evoking a fragment of amber resin picked up by Serge Lutens during a wander through the souks of Marrakech, which lay forgotten for years inside a thuja wood box, this perfume marks a return to a focus on the identity and authenticity of unique ingredients.

“This fragrance is not an Oriental, but an Arab and a Lutens. That being the case, don’t expect it to fit in. The point of departure was a scented wax, found in a souk and long forgotten in a wooden box. The amber only became sultanesque after I reworked the composition using cistus, an herb that sticks to the fingers like tar, then added an overtone that nobody had ever dreamed of: vanilla.”
