Serge Lutens Bourreau des Fleurs is a unisex oriental fragrance with notes of caramel, sap and resin and contains NO floral notes. It is Serge's symbolism of his relationship with his mother - both love and hate, the executioner. It is a pure perfume and was launched in 2017.
Serge Lutems Bourreau des Fleurs is a luxury line from Serge Lutens. It began with the launching of L'Incendiare ("The Arsonist") which was the first pure parfum from Serge Lutens as well as his first foray into the use of oud in one of his fragrances. This line was named Section d'Or (Golden Section) to describe a breakaway, a separation from his current line of fragrances. This exclusive collection is the brand’s ultimate creation and when it comes to choosing the ingredients to be used in each of the scents, only the finest quality is used, no expense spared. This is Serge Lutens at the culmination of his art.
from parfumo - "Bourreau des Fleurs behaves largely in a linear manner and is dominated by this lavish sweetness of immortelle. At around 90 minutes in, the spicy cumin aspect of immortelle suddenly makes a surge and then looms at the periphery, completing the olfactory profile of immortelle. Towards the later dry down, Bourreau des Fleurs sometimes makes me think of an almost resinous honey tobacco, but it eventually feels more like an illusion of immortelle."
from pierredenishapur - "I was serendipitous to meet Bourreau des fleurs. What a delivery! A nifty rendered gourmand, politely piercing spicy, softly vulgar fragrance that coalesces around a heart of immortelle.
It unleashes with burst of spicy weather paired with peculiar culinary waft and - most probably - spiky honey that confirms we are in Lutens' chamber. Immortelle immediately looms and spreads massive shade all over the scene."
