Seductive and mesmerizing, this takes the familiar theme of white flowers, coconut and vanilla and puts a dark and mysterious spin on it. It is still an enchanted tropical isle, but it is midnight and we’re not sure exactly what is waiting for us in the deep blue shadows. A wickedly insistent blend of datura, osmanthus, heliotrope and tuberose beckons us to go ever deeper into the dark heart of the jungle. Voluptuous tonka and vanilla lull us into a dreamy haze, while unexpected touches of bitter almond and myrrh keep us wary and on the lookout for danger. Serge Lutens Datura Noir does not reveal itself as a straightforward journey, but as a series of flickering impressions: one moment purely floral, the next apricot sweet, and the next richly gourmand. Somehow they all fit together beautifully, like the elements of like a particularly wild and vivid dream. We know that the treacherous datura is a hallucinogenic, but this reminds us of a different altered state – that of being madly, wildly, obsessively in love. Like the song you can’t get out of your head, or the face you cannot stop picturing – this is a fragrance you cannot forget
Rebottled by an independent bottler (Perfumista), the fragrance is taken from the genuine product and is entirely independent of the original manufacturer. Products are not supplied in the retail bottles shown in the main image. Bottle information of the product that will be received can be found in the ‘our bottle’s’ section.
All products are produced to order. We typically specify two clear working days from the date of order for production and dispatch on the third day for ALL orders. This is intended as a guide and production can slip during busy times of the year. If your order is time sensitive, please contact us for an accurate production and dispatch time frame.
Occasionally we may not have sufficient volume from a single bottle to complete your order. To avoid mixing bottles, we will wait until we have sufficient stock to produce all your order from a single bottle. Again, you will be notified by email if this is the case, and a full refund will be made if this creates an unacceptable delay for you.
