Fille en Aiguilles

Posted in

Christopher Sheldrake is one of the most talented perfumers out there. He does most of his work for Serge Lutens, which is one of the reasons why I am such a fan of the brand.
Fille en Aiguilles is a top-notch piece of work. It opens with a hit of pine and vetiver – medicinal, resinous, camphorous and earthy. Pine on its own can be too astringent, too cold, but here it is warmed with frankincense and cumin and is sweetened with a note of dried berries.
Evocative of a fir forest – a bed of pine needles on the forest floor, a whiff of dried wild berries, dappled warm sun – Fille is hauntingly beautiful.

Notes: Pine needles, vetiver, laurel, balsam fir, cumin, frankincense, berries.
