Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan Confit de Parfum Review

Review of Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan Confit de Parfum

Ambre Sultan fans, Serge Lutens has created a sensory new way to experience your favourite fragrance! The Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan Confit de Parfum is the same best-selling fragrance, but it now features a new oil-like texture that hugs the skin to heighten Serge Lutens’ amber-filled scent. Discover this innovative way to intensify and prolong your scent now..


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The Ambre Sultan Confit de Parfum eludes the same popular unisex fragrance created by Christopher Sheldrake in 2000, but in a more sensory, intimate setting. The oil starts with the sweet cosiness of warm, sticky amber which joins a heart of creamy, boozy vanilla. Once it’s sunken into the skin, the scent leaves behind an earthy patchouli tone, which joins the resinous amber nuances and addictive vanilla facets for a sense of ultimate indulgence.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

A unique take on oriental fragrances, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan is inspired by long-forgotten sticky notes that cling to the skin:

”The point of departure was a scented wax, found in a souk and long forgotten in a wooden box. The amber only became sultanesque after I reworked the composition using cistus, an herb that sticks to the fingers like tar, then added an overtone that nobody had ever dreamed of: vanilla. Why? Because vanilla is sticky, too, and it clings to my memory.” – Serge Lutens.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the best-selling Serge Lutens scent and you’re looking for a new way to experience your favourite perfume, you’ll love the sensory texture of this Confit de Parfum. The gel-like concentration prolongs and intensifies the fragrance, taking you straight from morning to night in one application. If, like me, you find your Eau de Parfum doesn’t quite last as long as you’d like, you’ll love that a little goes a long way with this perfume; a gentle touch is enough for each application.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

For fragrance lovers, this Confit de Parfum has a similar warm vanilla woodiness and sticky amber tone as Tom Ford Amber Absolute. Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan reminds me of a creamy, delicious vanilla cocktail, infused with the warm comforting feel of sweet, dark rum and topped with shards of sticky honeycomb.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Surprising! The Confit de Parfum emits an intense scent and boasts a prolonged wear that lasts around six hours on the skin.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

It’s a bottle that mimics the sky at night with a purple and black ombre effect. The glass flacon is a handy 25ml size that slips into any bag for quick refreshes throughout the day. Plus, the black pump makes application easy and mess-free.
