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!"
