Santal Majuscule

Eau de Parfum
The Scoop
Now that Santal Blanc has been shifted to the exclusive Palais-Royal collection, Serge Lutens’s export line was bereft of a scent showcasing one of the major materials of his oriental palette. Santal Majuscule, which means “sandalwood with a capital letter”, plays on the secular harmony of this creamy, smoky, almost floral note with roses. The unexpected twist is the addition of cocoa – not the dry, powdery type matched with patchouli in Borneo 1834, but a smooth touch of chocolate that marries with the milkiness of sandalwood in a subtly gourmand accent. A tender, subtle rendition of the note: in “majuscule”, you could read “magic” – as in the magical world of a little black-eyed boy called Serge, who put capital letters to words like “Gold”, “Fire” and “Flowers”.

I didn't like this on first try, put it aside for a few weeks and now I have used up a large smaple wearing it every day. The only thing that gives me pause is the thing that everyone else seems to love about Jeux de Peau-- the butter. One small spray at 7am this morning lasted beautifully all day; I get the impression of wood from the top and hours thereafter. To me it is like an abstraction, like floral perfumes that smell like an ideal of a flower, not a specific flower. Now hours later, I get buttered bread and I miss the 'santal' from top and middle. I wish I got more of the chocolate and less of the butter. I keep coming back to it, though, so I must like it. Like other Lutens frags, longevity is good. Which means that the top and middle last longer than the entire lifespan of most other frags I try.

What a dissapointment! Serge Lutens is my absolute favorite; he speaks to me with his essences. Upon hearing that my very favorite Santal Blanc is no longer going to be sold in the US, panic drove me to buy his new fragrance Santal Majescule. Nothing to compare! Serge has 2 modalities, exceptional and forgetable. This is definitely one in the forgetable category. No staying power, nothing complex, just forgetable. What a shame! To loose my very favorite and to have something so mundane to replace it. What a loss!

oh wow this DOES smell strikingly similar to jeux de peau , i mean after the opening to jeux, maybe at the 30 mins+ mark of wearing jdp. santal majascule is less buttery bread (which i find is only prominent in the opening to jeux) and is a tiny bit of rose but i think theres def a strong similarity and i own a full bottle of jdp. i cant give this a low rating tho cos i love jdp but ... idk i was hoping this would be completely unique in the serge line which it isnt . still , this smells ver nice

Very beautiful! What a combination of sandalwood, rose and cocoa. More beautiful than I imagined. Slightly gourmand; smooth; creamy.

I'm having trouble with this and the new L'Artisan perfume. They smell almost EXACTLY like something already in the line. This is amazing, don't get me wrong but it smells almost identical to Jeux de Peau. Now I happen to be quite obsessed with Jeux so it's not that it's bad....I just can't find a reason for this perfume in the collection. If all you got was toast from Jeux, maybe this will add a certain something for you personally (a little rose maybe) but for me it's downright identical.

I have quite a collection of perfume, including other Serge Lutens, Montales, Amouge, and Kilian among others. However, I have to say that this is my gem. It puts me in mind of Rose Aoud by Kilian, but it is softer and more wearable in any season, especially I think for autumn. The sandalwood and rose pair so nicely as in a very good attar, but the cocoa sets it apart. The dry sweetness puts me in mind of an incense one would delicately prepare with the finest ingredients to offer to Our Lady. Not to say that this isn't for men, I am a man, and I think this scent works equally well for either gender. Take my word for it, this is definitely worth the money and more for a full bottle. Thank you Serge Lutens.
