Santal Majuscule was released late in 2012 as a sandalwood alternative for Serge Lutens’ export line, meaning it would be available worldwide. Created by Christopher Sheldrake, it is a scent that is supposed to be all about fairytales with a long video (read by Serge Lutens) about a little nine-year old boy in armour on his horse who brought life to gold, flowers and fire. On his website, Serge Lutens more succinctly describes the scent as Santal Majuscule by Serge Lutens is wrapped in mysterious magic, which definitely has to be unraveled. This perfume is unique because of the unusual combination of shades of sandalwood, coffee and cocoa. This unisex fragrance will certainly become one of your favorite scents.
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”.
What is a Perfume Oil? Perfume oils are fragrance components, natural or synthetic, in an oily base rather than an alcohol base, and can be used directly on the skin.
What to expect? Expect a 5ml or a 10ml rollerball of concentrated perfume oil based on your order. The fragrance will be absolutely same as that of the perfume which you have ordered. This perfume oil can be easily applied on the skin and clothes.
Unlike most spray fragrances, perfume oils are alcohol-free, so they tend to be more highly concentrated and longer lasting. A 10 ml Rollerball of perfume oil generally lasts for more than 2-3 months of regular usage A 5 ml Rollerball of perfume oil generally lasts for more than 1-2 months of regular usage
