Description

 Serge Lutens Sarrasins described as ""a sumptuous jasmin which smoothes its fur... a sigh of time" and "a stunningly beautiful jasmine, gloved in jet-black ink," this is jasmine served up feral and skanky (this is a good thing!), at least a little.  If you prefer your jasmine unsanitized, this is the jasmine you want. There are a couple more indolic out there, but this is one of the best. While not as dark and feral as I would have loved it to be, it is the jasmine scent I find myself reaching for often.  Sarrasins is in the Floral fragrance group. 

Reveiws of Serge Lutens Sarrasins from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose. 

from boisdejasmin - "Beautiful jasmine though it is, Sarrasins neither breaks new grounds in perfumery nor offers the same unexpected juxtapositions and exaggerations as other Serge Lutens’ fragrances. I see all of its shortcomings—the slight synthetic feeling of the leather notes, the relative linearity of its structure, the presence of commercial jasmine bases already familiar to me. However, the total is not just a sum of its parts, and the effect it has on me cannot be reduced to its lack of innovation on a technical level. I smell it, and I see jasmine in all of its simplicity and clarity."

from profumo - "Sarrasins is THE reference indolic jasmine scent. First I was disappointed as it's not as animalic as expected. Rather very wearable which can be a good thing:) People around me say it's floral but more I wear it, Sarrasins feels like highly unique, non-sweet fruity leather. I love it, one of the best scents from Lutens."

    "When the deep purple falls..."

    I want to love Sarrasins, really I do, but it just keeps going all wrong on me. It starts out promising, with an interesting combination of jasmine, something like hyacinth, and... grape bubble gum? The color of the perfume itself might be influencing me, but this really is a 'purple' smell. Sadly, at some point it becomes a melancholy, old-fashioned purple smell, reminding me of dimly lit antiques shops and cracked tea cups painted with violets. In the end, it makes me feel... blue.

    Finally a Jasmine I can wear

    This is a divine floral with a very grown up jasmine undertone; or one could say overtone. No overly sweet untouched virgin here, but a woman who has touched and felt what the world has to offer; and extend her wrist - for more, more of this lovely scent.

    Not for the timid.

    Sarrasins opens with an atypical jasmine that is harsh to my nose. I then smell apricot, which I like, soon followed by liquid floor wax. The scent is very lasting and does not change much during the ensuing several hours. It persists on my skin until next morning but retains an uncomfortably jagged sharpness all the way to the end.

    Dark and gorgeous

    This is a deep, dark, but not totally feral jasmine, sort of like a wolf that just might walk by your side for a while. I find it hypnotic. Can't get enough of it. The light, creamy, virginal aspects of jasmine (and they do exist) aren't here, they're in some other bottle. This is jasmine for adults only.

    jasmine and purple ink

    A magnificent purple fragrance. The beginning of the jasmine is going osmantus breaker then becoming fruity odor, the Sillage is great. Yet the result is a jasmine perfume on much more wearable than the jasmine soliflor "A la nuit"
    The downside is that is strangely perfumes and spray hood, perhaps they realize it's much more wearable than others of the export house.
