Santal majuscule by Serge Lutens
Olfactory memories from school days
Santal majuscule is the third sandalwood fragrance Serge Lutens has dreamt up – after Santal Blanc, a rather gentle scent, and the spicier Santal de Mysore. To a certain extent, there’s even Jeux de peau, which Santal majuscule is somewhat like. The fragrance is reminiscent of Serge Lutens’s school days, when he entertained himself by embellishing the capital letters (“majuscules,” in French) of his essays with all sorts of doodles.
Hard to categorize, Santal majuscule opens with spicy and syrupy notes. In the heart, sandalwood intertwines with a strongly present rose, before giving way to a sweetly woody trail with a chocolaty effect.
Spicy Notes, Syrupy Notes
Woody Notes, Chocolaty Notes
