a journey of the senses by FLACONNEUR
Les Salons du Palais Royal – Serge Lutens is located in Paris, France and is the brainchild of the creative mind of film maker, makeup artist, fashion designer, photographer and perfumer Serge Lutens. He has put his creative touch to every inch of his beautiful Art Deco inspired boutique. The interior design of Serge Lutens salons were based on one of his fragrances called Féminité du Bois that was released in 1992. You enter a dimly lit room with the central focus around a beautiful iron spiral staircase surrounded by display cases filled with Serge Lutens fragrances. Many of the design elements are historical in nature and nod to many design references from the Art Deco period. At the top of the spiral staircase you are greeted by a Moroccan themed room. Lutens’ love of the Moroccan culture is present in the decor. He finds many influences with the Moroccan culture that inspire his fragrances, so that seems fitting. The room is decorated in warm tones of red and yellow, quite the contrast to the more modern mauve and purple tones of the main floor.
The boutique has a very knowledgeable staff that are versed in not only Serge Lutens perfumes but also their makeup line. Don’t worry about how bad your French might be because the staff can accommodate you as well with their bilingual capabilities. The Les Salons du Palais Royal-Serge Lutens is located at Jardins du Palais Royal, 142, Galerie de Valois, 75001 Paris.
