Serge Lutens L'Orpheline is described as "Fragile but whole. Its name hints at a break but before the fissures show, its first two syllable [sic] conjure Orpheus, a poet who could charm even stones." A contrast between fougere and incense notes, L'Orpheline studies contrasts and the tiny things the bind one thing to another. A unisex fragrance that is perfection to wear. Cool but not austere.
Fragrantica - "I love love love L'orpheline, it's such a gray fragrance for me. It also has a rather dark or should I say lonely story behind it.. Picture dusty, green incense with a bit of musk and woody notes.. An exceptional beauty, wonderfully grey, perfect for rainy days, and so hauntingly lonely."
Fragrantica - "L'Orpheline feels like the comforting hands of darkness are grabbing you and pulling you into the abyss yet you call the abyss your home. It is a mountain spirit, a ghost, a shadow, a cry of pain. But that is her world, the world of the L'Orpheline. Austere, grey, bewitching."
Fragrantica - "No, it's not a show-stopping fragrance with commendable sillage, nor does it demonstrate otherworldly longevity. This perfume is subtle, quiet, selective; she speaks no louder than a whisper and only to those whom she deems worthy."
