You can win Serge Lutens fragrances

Every week for the next month we’re offering fabulous prizes through our Twitter account including perfume from the world class perfumer Serge Lutens.

Serge Lutens’ perfumes are famous for their individuality, authenticity and rarity. Although born in Lille, France, Serge Lutens draws inspiration from his adopted home, Morocco.

His scents are pure and intoxicating yet anchored in reality. They smell of the things you recognise: places, skin, sex, people, even bread.

Lutens’ newest perfume Jeux de Peux is said to be inspired by childhood memories of warm, crusty bread. Other popular perfumes include Ambre Sultan, Fille en Aiguilles and Daim Blond.

Enter our Twitter competition throughout May and you could discover for yourself the beauty of Lutens’ fragrances.
