I'm a bit slow on the uptake, but in case any of you chaps wanted a translation of the OP's link from a native French speaker, it reads something like this:
"What else could the great Serge possibly come up with for 2011? The year got off to a promising start with Jeux de Peau, the perfume with a hallucinatory note of toast and brioche. So you might well ask what he's dreamed up for the second half of the year. Flowers, but not any old flowers. Fans of pepper, clove and nutmeg: this "angry perfume" is for you. Woody notes (will it be cedar? rosewood?) lend a masculine edge to this flower which, the creator reminds us, is traditionally worn by men (ideally dashing young rogues) in their jacket buttonholes. The base is powdery and balsamic, and it takes a little while before Serge's carnation truly blooms, olfactively speaking.
Which is not at all the case with the second perfume, De Profundis, reserved exclusively for the Salons du Palais Royal. This is a true floral - no sugar, no balsam, no marshmallows. Then again, with such a name, that's hardly surprising. De Profundis is in fact a perfume inspired... by death. Yes, that's right. Its mystical name means something like "from the depths". "From the bottom of the dark crevice," as Baudelaire would put it in his poem of the same name. "In prison, crushed by anguish," wrote Oscar Wilde in his own De Profundis. Lutens locates himself squarely in the tomb, where the deceased can sadly no longer smell "the gladioli, chrysanthemums and dahlias" delivering their fragrance. This perfume is green, almost aldehydic, delicately sombre with its notes of camomile and faded peony. "Death is clearly a woman,"Lutens explains. But De Profundis, with its shades of wood and hay, is not a perfume solely restricted to female use. As Lutens explains: "courage [le courage], suicide [le suicide], dizziness [le vertige]" - these are masculine words. As for the juice, it is tinted in resplendent violet. A colour of mourning, of course.
Anger and mourning? Don't worry, Serge is fine. His mind is already on future creations. Phew, we're delighted." - Nicolas Olczyk
Hope that helps
I got my sample of Vitriol D'Oeillet today, and I must say I'm enjoying it. Peppery spicy carnation with a lovely translucent feel. Tons of clove (which I'm not normally a fan of, except in carnations). Balsamic drydown. Pretty much delivers what's promised. It is a lot less dense and rich than many of his other creations, but I find it charming and unusual enough to warrant wearing, though not FB-worthy.
I'm saving my pennies for Tubereuse Criminelle - my obsession! Does anyone know when it's going to be released for export?
