“Arabie” is the first perfume I've sampled from the renowned house of Serge Lutens.

Fruits, spice... and everything nice.
This is a fragrance with a personality! I really love how the fragrances of Serge Lutens manage to challenge me constantly. To me that is a sign of a very good fragrance you don't want a fragrance which is too predictable or similar to the same trends time and time again. Instead, here I find a... Read more

Nice gourmand dries down not-so-nicely
Arabie certainly has clove in it, but the clove doesn’t overpower the rest of the notes, although very noticeable. In a small way, it reminds me of L’Artisan’s Piment Brulant, but only because they both share a clove note. Arabie is definitely gourmand, while PB is more like a vegetable... Read more

Difficult to understand this fragrance
Dried or old fruits? Maybe. Hard to use? Yes. Unique smell? Indeed. Arabie must be worn for several times in order to be understood. I did hate the first times, and now i do recognize a unique and wonderful smell on this. Lots of dried fruits, cloves and nutmeg all over a resin... Read more

sweetie, darling
Arabie makes me understand the attraction of the dessert or gourmand fragrance, a category that otherwise doesn’t captivate me. Granted, Arabie is spared from the gourmand category by its emphasis on woods, but it is also sweeter than many gourmands, so the distinction seems weak. Yes,... Read more

Super intense spiciness
I adore this fragrance, although it did take some getting used to. Arabie is one of those deliciously strong and potent spicy orientals that you can't stop admiring. It's also borderline gourmand, having a fascinating syrupy accord that really adds to its appeal. At first, Arabie reminds me of... Read more

A spritz of Christmas chutney shouldn't smell so good
I am not a big fan of cumin notes in scents....or rather I am not a fan of BIG cumin notes in scents. Kingdom was just too troublesome & stomach-churning for my tastes. Luckily, Arabie is not a cumin-criminal on my skin...just a pseudo-exotic, candied fruit & spice-bomb with good bone... Read more

Cumin Fruitcake, Anyone?
"This smells familiar" was the first phrase out of my mouth upon applying Serge Lutens ARABIE. Then it only remained to determine what, precisely, I was reminded of by this intoxicating—or is it suffocating?—perfume. With the help of many able reviewers at various locales across the... Read more

What a long, strange trip it's been
This is one amazing whirlwind of a scent. There are so many aromas swirling in this perfume. Sweet stewed fruits, rich resins, warm spices and something that somehow evokes the image of a wild nocturnal animal in a dark forest. I imagine that what I am picking up is reminiscent of the natural... Read more
