Memories of Clove Cigarettes
I’ve had a few weeks to spend cozying up to Chergui. The reviews and various online forum opinions are so polarizing. To be frank, the notes are a bit intimidating. I was at once curious and trepidatious about trying Chergui. However, nothing beats testing perfume to skin. And how glad I... Read more

The king in Serge's perfumes chess screen
I would like to write this review as a tribute to one of my top 10 favorites perfumes. Chergui means "Eastern", so you should expect kinda Eastern scent from this masterpiece, which is not only very rich but also so attractive and dusty like historical Eastern ruins. The perfume opens as... Read more
Definitely my favourite Lutens, so far and by far the best Tobacco fragrance I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. Incredibly rich, opulent, and masterfully crafted - Tobacco, Amber, Honey, Hay, Iris, Rose, Incense....all gloriously blended into a magical potion of epic proportions. There's a lot... Read more

They are sitting in an obscure room,all of them with their cigars lighten up.The smoke is filling up every corner even though on the left side there's a window opened.Doesn't matter too much,cause all it comes in is hay smell,not disturbing,even nice if i think better.The red courtains are moving...

A Wind from the East...
Chergui is a beautiful fragrance. The name itself means "Eastern" in Arabic (????), and it is the name of a wind that sweeps across the Sahara desert and into Morocco. The idea here was to evoke that same wind, and all the various smells from the desert and the surrounding... Read more

I dream of genie
Chergui is my spoilt brat perfume, a perfume reflecting a lifestyle of pure luxuriousness, NOT compulsive, mindless consumption though. A life where the possibility of two weeks' of holiday to travel in Morocco and amongst other things, experience this desert wind that blows hot in summer and cold... Read more

This fragrance opens with the sweetness of honey and the smokiness of tobacco leaf. The tobacco note is well-balanced and therefore adds only a certain edge to the fragrance, but does not overwhelm it. The tobacco keep it from getting too sweet as well. The head honey note gradually softens as the... Read more

The hot desert wind
Wow! A thousand times wow! It is not often that I immediately am captivated by a fragrance, let alone a niche fragrance. I'm usually quite picky but when I received this bottle in a swap (thank you again Tomaz) just now and I took the bottle out of its very carefully packaged box, I got a very... Read more

Chergui - A mixed bag
At first try, the incense (or is it hay?) knocked me out and gave me a headache. The second time, it was still mostly incense but not overwhelmingly so. The third time, reapplied directly after the second, was LOVE. I don't think I have a lot to say that others haven't said already. But I... Read more

One of the best Lutens
Tobacco and honey. Then a bit of incense and amber. Now you have this brilliant scent. Chergui is one of the easiest Serge Lutens to wear. Great for colder seasons, it's unisex in my opinion. Pleasant and very well blended, it's lasting power is around 10 hours. Projection and sillage... Read more

some of its parts
Chergui is apparently one of the best sellers in the Lutens line. When I test it and read the list of notes, I'm a believer more or less. I can make out the notes I'm told are there. Yes, there is hay, tobacco, musk. But lord know I've nearly derailed going too far into the madness of a 'list of... Read more

Hay, This Is A Good One...
Chergui opens with a sweet dose of sugary hay. The heart notes appear shortly afterwards, showcasing a deep pipe-like sweet tobacco amber combo, with clove-laced honey and incense accents. The scent winds down with the tobacco and amber combo receding, while joining a pleasant musk base finishing... Read more

I'll never underestimate hay again
Most of the notes here seem sort of expected for a sweet oriental unisex perfume with massive sillage and longevity - the amber, leather, musk, tobacco, incense, etc., but I feel like the hay is responsible for that interesting little twist in Chergui's personality that makes it instantly...

A hot, dry desert wind
One thing that I love about Serge Lutens scents is that so many of them paint a scene so vividly in my mind. Chergui evokes the image of a ghosttown somewhere in the arid expanse of the American west, where a hot dry wind blows dust and tumbleweeds through deserted streets and abandoned... Read more
