Reviews and Problems with Serge Lutens Fille En Aiguilles
Showing 1-10 of 23
Another Dense and Intense Event Scent from le Grand Serge
22 January 2013
Summary: After taking a few months off from my journey through the land of Serge, I decided to continue my search for the perfumes of this house which might work for me. So far I have not had all that much success, although I probably will be acquiring one of the triad FEMINITE DU BOIS, BOIS ET FRUITS and BOIS DE VIOLETTE at some point in 2014 (once my self-induced austerity campaign has come to an end).
Summary: The sappy, resinous pine notes of Fille en Aiguilles take me back to my childhood in northern Minnesota: climbing pine trees and having the smell of pine tar and sap all over my hands. As Fille en Aiguilles it also develops a wonderful, campfire smokiness. Actually, the smoky aspect of the fragrance is, initially, one some may find challenging. I've heard its onset described as the 'burnt sugar' accord.
Summary: I love all Serge Lutens frangances. They are unique fragances that always draw comments from people. They are long lasting and because they are very concentrated with good fixers, last a long time. Fille en Aiguilles is a fairly new frangance. It is totally unisex, although maybe it is slightly more in the masculine range than other SL frangances.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Elegant with spice notes, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: While there are better scents from the house, I did indeed enjoy sampling Fille en Aiguilles from Serge Lutens. It starts off with a nice coniferous pine note mixed with semi-sweet candied fruit. The pine quickly recedes and the fruit remains, mixing with bay leaf and other spices along with incense. The candied fruit starts to turn almost caramelized, resembling wet tobacco leaf. That is how the scent remains for the duration to my nose... Dark, semi-sweet and incense.
Summary: This proved to be a more subtle and lingering fragrance than I expected. It wasn't a one-note novelty. Yes, there was a definite hit of pine forest at first, but as it dried down my next reaction was "churches." There's an incense note in there, and -- odd as this might sound -- hot solder. (Solder, the kind you use on electronic circuit boards, might not sound like an attractive smell, but it has irresistible incense undertones.
Summary: This fragrance plays with contrasts. It changes between brigt and dark, light and shadow, fresh and warm. The fresh, balmy pine notes becomes sweet. Later, when incense and spices take their part, becomes smoky and difuse. The deep lush green develops into a impenetrable and dense black forest plenty of sheer sensuality.
Summary: As the name suggests it is a pine fragrance and that pretty much all you get! There is no change in the smell throughout its life which is great if you love pine but it can get abit 'air freshener' after a bit.
Summary: Fille en Aiguilles is amazing - it smells like a pine forest on a hot day, with sap covered trees. You can smell the needles, spiced fruits and greenery, I can understand why not everyone would like it, but to me, this is love.
Summary: Puhh, mein erster Kommentar und das zu einem gar nicht so einfachen Parfüm, denke ich mal. Ich komme gleich zur Sache: über den Duft hatte ich schon oft gelesen. Getestet -und gleich gekauft- habe ich ihn zum ersten Mal heute in einem Münchner Laden. Und meine Assoziationen gehen auch natürlich in Richtung Wald. Zunächst einmal. Aber keinen deutschen Wald.
