January Scent Project continues to impress us with new spins on familiar themes. With Serin we are introduced to a lighter side of amber that is rarely, if ever, seen. Like Lutens’ Ambre Sultan, Serin is an herbal amber that, rather than going the darker route, takes a delightfully surprising, effervescent turn. And unlike Lutens’ amber, Serin is positively doused in herbs. The feel is that of Little Red Riding Hood gathering herbs in the countryside on a crisp but sunny autumn morning. We can’t get enough of this beauty.
