Serge Lutens Palais Royal Exclusives at Bergdorf Goodman?
Yesterday I had a pleasure of meeting Tom (who is as handsome and as dryly-humorous as I always imagined him to be) and two wonderful friends from makeupalley (Who totally made my day with their beauty and humor and warmth. "Perfume people" are the best.). According to Tom's account - or rather according to a SA from Bergdorfs- the bell jars are coming to Bergdorf Goodman, exclusively, in November. ALL of them. Right now Bergdorf seems to have testers (?) of Bois Sepia and Bois et Fruits, and the SA kindly made Tom samples of both. According to yet another SA who talked to my makeupalley friends, only TWO exclusives will be coming to Bergdorfs, the aforementioned Bois Sepia and Bois et Fruits, and they will be in the export style, 50ml, bottles. Whether the rest of the line will follow, remains unclear.
The realist in me tends to believe the second version of the events. The perfume-maniac in me wants to believe that soon all of the bell jars will be gracing the shelves at Bergdorf. And yet something else in me is strangely saddened by this turn of events. I don't know why would I rue the -alleged- end of the exclusivity, but I do. It feels like the end of an era. The rumors that Sarrasins and Louve will be Lutens's last creations have been circulating for a while, and now I am starting to really believe them. I would be very excited to be a street and several blocks away from "bell jars"...but I will miss waiting -with excitement, with baited breath- for new Lutens releases.
If you have any more information on the Lutens exclusives at Bergdorf Goodman, please share!
