If scent can be digitised and sent as an attachment via email or downloaded from a site, I would definitely want to download or be emailed the samples of a fragrance named after Borneo, the world’s third largest island where I was born.

borneoThe Borneo 1834 by Serge Lutens seems to be so unique that the smell can only be described if one utilises fully all the writing techniques he or she may have in his or her disposal.

One reviewer, for instance, wrote that Borneo 1834 “takes the sweet winey effervescence of patchouli and layers it with silkiness of chocolate and darkness of resinous woods.”

Another reviewer says Borneo 1834 has “something that has been long-forgotten, bone dry but still powerful…”

The perfume is Paris-exclusive as of 2005, the year the perfume was created by Serge Lutens.

However, there have been reports that the perfume will ship for the export market sometime in the fall of last year, which is sometime during the third quarter of 2008.

Still, I think the brand is too exclusive to make to the mass market, let alone to the remote island it is named after.

Perhaps there is indeed a bottle or two of the fragrance, tuck away somewhere in the mansions of the rich and powerful in Borneo.
