Datura Noir fragrance notes

Reviews of Datura Noir

If Datura Noir were a person: Loretta, sixty-something, Las Vegas. She puts on her dress (classy, but showing quite a bit of her ample cleavage) and heads down to the casino. It's one of the older casinos, a little divey, but the drinks are strong and the men are nice to her. She can still turn heads, even if the heads, like her, are getting older. She has a fantastic time, getting louder and more bawdy as she drinks...

So what does Datura Noir actually smell like? Loud, minty tuberose with coconutty ylang over powdery soapy white musk, with a dark cherry cough syrup note that starts upfront but ends up as a dark undertone once the tuberose pushes it out of the way. From a certain angle, this does simulate datura (angel's trumpet), but is, at its heart, a big loud bawdy dame halfway between Fracas and Black Orchid.

I sampled it and bought it directly. It’s like a mix of Hypnotic Poison and Poison Girl, without the strength of the first one and the sweetness of the latest. It’s perfect almond, tuberose and vanilla without being cloying. It’s clean and dark. Gorgeous.

Such a jumble of notes - floral, fruit, nut - and yet no one note overcomes the others. It is certainly well balanced in that respect.
The heart notes, as read, when combined under a different hand, might halt an army miles distant. Here they smoothly work in harmony to produce a light, feminine floral, warmed by the vanilla-like properties of heliotrope, tonka, musk, and vanilla itself.

The "tropical" is suggested, rather than part of the actual composition. All that said, the scent itself does not impress me. I get the effect of an attempt at creating a L'Heure Bleue with modern combinations of oils that doesn't quite come together.

It is certainly not bad, nor loud, nor "trashy," as Lutens described it, but it is too quiet to be lauded. Very nice, pleasant, but unremarkable.

Sweet, Honeyed Floral...

There is something so intoxicating about this one. Like a narcotic flower which seduces with it's sweet decadent aroma. Datura Noir reminds me that Serge Lutens knows how to make astonishingly rich, decadent floral compositions. I'm taking about A La Nuit, the jasmine tuberose powerhouse, and my personal favourite, Fleurs d'Oranger, a heady mix of orange blossom and tuberose.

Here, the main flower is tuberose, coupled with almond, heliotrope and vanilla (a trio which compliment each other perfectly) and coconut, which adds an exotic touch to an already deeply exotic perfume.

If you are a fan of heady, tropical florals, then in my opinion you cannot beat a Serge Lutens perfume like this one. Why? Because not only does it smell fantastic, it actually smells natural too. It is as if you are in a tropical greenhouse full of rare, indolic, organic tropical flowers in full bloom, and you put your nose up to a huge white flower, and the smell knocks you off your feet. If you like sweet, green, natural and tropical (not to mention realistic), then give this one a go!
