The Serge Lutens Flacons de Table collection gets a new limited-edition. It’s named Tareb and is available exclusively at Harrods from November 20 on, announced as ‘a golden lustre to outplay the contrast between light and shadow’.
The character of the Serge Lutens Tarab Eau de Parfum is best explained by discovering the meaning behind its name. In Arabic, ‘Tarab’ refers to a trance-like state in which the body is lost in dance, the senses heightened by music which seems to take flight. This evocative feeling is translated into fragrance form via sensual notes of Turkish rose, Cambodian oud and cypriol.
Tareb represents an interpretation of a 300-year-old perfume from India called ‘Shamama’, as well as Serge Lutens’ version of the combination of agar wood and rose. Woods, resins, smoky notes and the unique scent of candied fruit form this aroma which contains the official notes of oud from Cambodia, Turkish rose and cypriol. The additions of cedar, pine needles and patchouli highlight different silhouettes of roses.
Note the luxurious golden flacon, complete with a curvaceous design and apothecary stopper, which reflects the golden glow that changes with light, and in a wooden box in a North African style.
