L'orpheline Perfume by Serge Lutens, This complex scent is a study in contrasts, at once cool and warm, offering transparent floral notes as well as a veil of incense. Frankincense and myrrh mingle their resinous , earthy aroma with aldehydes to create the impression of fresh, outdoor breezes touched by warm oak. Cashmeran with its velvety musk also offers a strong floral component. Labdanum and amber lend their lush, deep aromas to complement green notes from patchouli and coumarin. The fragrance has moderate to high longevity and moderate sillage.
L'orpheline was introduced in 2014 by French artist Serge Lutens, whose career encompasses hair styling, fashion and fragrance design, photography and filmmaking. In 1980 he began an association with Shiseido that placed that company on the world stage, and in 2000 he established the company that bears his name to distribute both fragrances and makeup. Nose Christopher Sheldrake has collaborated on all of the fragrances released by the house.
