Rousse reveals a ‘dry and noble cinnamon wood, discreetly adjusted with spicy, fruity and floral notes’.

At a glance

A spicy wood, as noble as a head of flaming-red hair


Rousse is an elegant, sparkling, sweet and sensual skin scent. Serge Lutens’ inspiration for Rousse came from childhood memories of grandma baking and making jam. Rousse highlights cinnamon, ‘spicy, almost prickly, as though it were composed of miniscule starbursts’. A spice that’s also a tree bark that ‘remains singular, though it shades from beige to reddish-brown’: ‘an imaginary cinnamon (…) that wants to hold onto an image of the color of her hair, weaving it into a spice that is so often overlooked’. Available from the Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido and in selected perfume shops.


Eau de Parfum 1.7 fl. oz.


The rectangular house bottle, with it’s luxuriously pure design.

    Une cannelle douce, boisée, épicée que j'ai plaisir à porter de temps en temps. Cependant, j'aurai tendance à m'en lasser un peu vite...

    Now the "same olfactory scent" is showing Youth Dew by Estée Lauder. I believe Youth Dew to be the worst fragrance ever made. It's so powerful I can almost be overcome with fumes and fainting.

    I can't find Serge Lutens here! It is obviously a specialty fragrance only sold in Europe. I love the smell of cinnamon bark. This has been grouped in the same olfactory group as Trouble by Boucheron which I tried - found interesting - but ended up buying a bottle of Giorgio.
