    An angry carnation, huh? Sounds rather dandyish, but this is going to be a must-sniff for me.

    Dammit, I had long planned on creating a fragrance called De Profundis. I guess I shouldn't have spent so much time napping. Arrgh.

    Agree with the others here, a Serge Lutens spicy and angry carnation sounds like it could be pure genius. De Profundis (from the depths) also sounds, to quote Wednesday Addams, "nice and gloomy."
    There hasn't been a new Serge in quite awhile that has truly excited me. I find Jeux de Peau, Nuit de Cellophane and Bas de Soie to be rather forgettable.

    +1 and you kind of add Boxeuses, which is nice but nothing supposedly butch or tough to me.
    Thanks for sharing, mon-petit! I wonder whether Serge Lutens can add anything to carnation that outdoes Caron's En Avion or Tabac Blond and others. I'd be quite interested in the Exclusive, so maybe they will send out a sample???, which would be greatly appreciated, but less likely for the Exclusive I fear.

    What is the Grand Serge was well able to find us again for 2011? The year started well with games skin, the haunting fragrance notes of toast and brioche. So for the second half of the year, one might wonder what was going to be able to pass through the head. It will be flowers, but not just any. The first is a pink 'vitriolic', dealt with an angle ultra-spicy. Fans of pepper, cloves and nutmeg, this' angry perfume is for you. Some woody notes (it would be cedar, rosewood?) Masculinize this flower, as recalled by the creator, is worn on the lapel of suits by men. Preferably the 'young and handsome rogue'. If the substance is powdered and balmy, it takes some time for the eye of Serge really become a flower, olfactory speaking. This is not the case of the second perfume, De Profundis, reserved the Salons du Palais Royal. There is a real flower, sugar free, balms or without marshmallows. At the same time with such a name, it should not be too fancy. De Profundis is indeed a scent inspired by the death .... Yes, yes. His name, sounding somewhat mystical means 'from the depths'. 'From the depths of the dark pit' would Baudelaire in his eponymous poem. In prison, crushed by the anguish in his Oscar Wilde wrote De Profundis him. In the tomb, frankly, for Lutens. Where the deceased can unfortunately no longer feel 'gladioli, chrysanthemums and dahlias, which release their fragrance. It is green, aldehydic almost delicately dark too, with its effect chamomile / peony faded. 'Death is a woman is clearly explained in the creator. But De Profundis, with woody tones hay is not restricted only to women perfume said Lutens' courage, suicide, dizziness, many words are masculine. As for the juice, the color is a gorgeous purple. A color of mourning, of course. Anger and grief: Serge goes well, do not worry. He is already thinking about future designs. Phew, we rejoiced.

    I too have Aramex links in the US & UK and have tried having perfume shipped to me.
    I bought Pure Malt from Nordstrom or similar. I got an email from Aramex 3 days later saying Perfume freight is against thier policy and I had 3 choices, they return to sender, destroy it (means they'll keep it lol) or FWD to another address in the US.
    But I have heard of instances where people have gotten by. I think Nordstrom may have stated the package contained perfume.

    From nstperfume.com:

    Serge Lutens will launch Vitriol d’Oeillet, a new woody floral perfume in the export range, in July.

    The new ‘angry carnation” will feature spice notes, including cayenne, black pepper, pink pepper, nutmeg and clove, and is described as slightly powdery.

    Serge Lutens Vitriol d’Oeillet will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Blind buying this one for sure. I really hope this new direction of "literary inspiration" at the Serge Lutens palace doesn't jump the shark.

    Jeux de Peau was quite disappointing, so I hope this pissed off carnation makes up for it.

    The carnation sounds wonderful, I'm not so sure about the other one.

    The last two releases, Boxeuses and Bas de Soie were okay, but they didn't grab me. I want a bottle of Jeux de Peau, but I will probably just get a decant this fall/winter.

    It start with plenty of pepper/clove, after it settle down you have the flowers: some rose, a timid carnation with a hint of powdery violet and a woody basenote.

    I think I'm not an oracle by predicting we are in for big surprises in the sense of disappointments. It is not only the eugenol we are talking about. Reformulations are currently happening and it will have an impact at least as severe as the oakmoss restrictions.

    My vitriol sample arrived today... this gives me a good laugh... Serge is doing the extremely successful Amouage thing. This smells similar to Memoir Woman with the same indefinite white flower/tuberose accord. Sorry, this does not smell of quality to me. What worries me most is that it is really dawning on me what new releases and brandnew reformulations I have smelled this year... if this is the product of IFRA 2010 this s going to bother me much much more than oakmoss. Ah yes, one more peppery frag and I'll go crazy. Are people's lives so dull out there?

    Default Re: Next Lutens to be released: Vitriol d'oeillet and De Profundis

    As others have stated... too timid and characterless... soft carnation, some pepper and other spices, some violet and woods in the base. Not interested in it. Was expecting something more from this house.

  52. #52

    Default Re: Next Lutens to be released: Vitriol d'oeillet and De Profundis

    So here's my try on Vitriol d'oeilet:
    + first spray: nothing stands out
    + 2nd spray: ok, there're definitely peppery and spicy things in the opening before smoothening into a soft floral until it settles into a nice (maybe too nice) slightly powdery woody base. It took me sometime to "feel" it better, but not quite clearly.
    I must say I was disappointed in VdE, after reading the wonderful interview article on grainedemusc.blogspot.com.
    Maybe the "angry carnation" lacks its necessary aggressiveness, or/and even, it's character. The peppery and spicy topnotes need to bite harder instead of just tingle.
    But the juice over-all is nice and plush. That's all I can say.

    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?

    Thanks for the update! Now I'm really curious about De Profundis. Chrysanthemums have a very odd, not really floral smell, so I was thinking they might pretty it up into blandness. Sounds like it's not!
