Created by Jean Kerléo in 1972, 1000 is from the generation of perfumes that followed the dictum of “more is more,” and you have to be prepared for it. You have to like the starchy crinkle of aldehydes(starched linen crossed with overheated metal, the buttery richness of rose and iris, the heft of creamy woods, and the inky darkness of oakmoss. It skimps on nothing, which makes it both fun and challenging.

1000 has an unpromising opening of strong aldehydes and green, crushed leaf notes, which smells plain old-fashioned. But this phase is immediately taken over by the dark violets and sandalwood, which give 1000 a soft, rich feel.

Top notes are coriander, green notes, bergamot, tangerine and violet leaf; middle notes are iris, violet, jasmine, chinese osmanthus, lily-of-the-valley, rose and geranium; base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, patchouli, civet, oakmoss and vetiver.





Evoking a fragment of amber resin picked by Serge Lutens during a wander through Marrakech, this perfume marks a return to a focus on the identity and authenticity of unique ingredients. From the fragranced world of an esteemed french perfume house, this is a oriental scent fit for a king if you fantasize of what it would be like to be a sheik, this would be your scent.

Ambre Sultan is the antithesis of the golden, powdery ambers you may be familiar with. This stunning fragrance is deep, resinous scent, loaded with spices, deep amber, earthy patchouli, dark resins and quiet vanilla, all of which combine to make a visceral and raw scent experience. The fragrance features amber, coriander, sandalwood, bay leaf, patchouli, angelica, resins and myrrh. It is deep and mysterious.

It's a trip to a Bedouin tent in a desert far away and stealing a look inside…thick incense burning on coal with spices filling the air, mysterious eyes flashing and a very real feeling that you've never smelled anything like this magnificent amber perfume before.






This limited-edition aroma was released in 2016 under the guidance of the Japanese fashion designer Hanae Mori. As the first Japanese woman to present her clothing on the Paris runways, this illustrious artist has made a name for herself across industries.

Finally, light powdery tones finish off the fragrance with a light and airy grace for a delectable and flirty perfume you’ll be delighted to spritz on your skin repeatedly.
