Must Read: All My Perfumes are Sixty Six Years Old

"Inspiration is not something that comes in a flash. It is there within us and belongs to all. Nothing is less inspired than a suddenly inspired person! The components are already there inside you: elements, scents, colors, shapes… and when they express themselves you realize they have always been present. In fact, all my perfumes are sixty six years old!"

From Serge Lutens' interview for Victoria Forlova of Bois de Jasmin.

Another interesting quote from the interview: "The great problem of commercial perfumery is that people keep buying it!"
