Description

Serge Lutens Boxeuses retains some of the original bedrock notes from this house in Feminite du Bois and the rest of the Boisees - fruit, plum, violet, cedar - and adds leather and a little licorice.  Boxeuses is in the Leather fragrance group. 

Reviews of Serge Lutens Boxeuses from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose does. 

from Kafkaesque - "Boxeuses opens on my skin with a bouquet of notes that are so dark purple, they verge on black: plum molasses; violet cherry cola; black licorice; leathery, black fig compote; and sweet dried fruits topped by heaping dollops of prune over a richly resinous, smoky base. Birch tar is a huge part of that base with its tarry, smoky character. It’s a hard aroma to describe if you’ve never smelled it, especially as it’s quite different here from the way I’ve encountered it before. It’s not mentholated, not like eucalyptus, not like diesel, not like rubber, and not chilly — and, yet, it almost feels like all of it. It never seems like pure leather to me but, rather, like extremely gooey, black, resinous molasses, filled with a dark, pungent, almost sharp smoke that has a diesel-like undertone to it. The molasses smells like the thickest concentration of stewed prunes, plums and black figs. I have no idea if black figs are actually in Boxeuses, but something about that sticky foundation smells like the grainy, densely sweet, slightly spiced, slightly leathered, earthy aspects of thick, Black Mission fig jam."

from cafleurebon - "The first jab is a full shot of leather right to the nose. This leather accord is exquisite and as both Denyse and Victoria have commented previously very like Chanel Cuir de Russie but then, what is becoming a trademark of the best Serge Lutens perfumes, an intense dark fruit note arrives to go with the leather accord. I think each wearer of Boxeuses is going to identify it slightly differently as the ionones and damascones joining the leather will come off slightly different. Denyse and Victoria had different experiences and it looks like mine is also different but closest to Denyse’s. I get what I would identify as a rich date accord pungent and candied slightly sweet with a fruity intensity. It is that intensity that we all agree on and I think that might be the brilliance of Boxeuses. Every wearer will experience the rich Russian Leather similarly but as the leather mellows it will almost become a fragrant Rohrschach test to see which fruit appears in the boxing glove. The one thing I am sure of is everyone who loves leather and dark fruit is going to find Boxeuses their kind of perfume, with a capital P."
