L’Orpheline is the new fragrance by Serge Lutens, now available at Lutens' Palais Royal boutique in Paris. 

After Laine de Verrewhich was dedicated to his motherL’Orpheline pays an olfactive homage to another feminine figure, which Lutens describes as the abandoned part of his identity. Growing up fatherless and feeling abandoned by his mother, Lutens turns a painful, intimate past into a scent. The narrative involves the perfumier's two-sided essence: "The Vanquished" (girl) and "The Victor" (boy).
