Serge Lutens Cracheuse de Flammes - "Seduction is a weapon, the flames a language. I breathe the fire which ignites her passion! And in this war of fire, all that remains of the woman, the rose in this instance, is a burning passion." (From Serge Lutens PR material) Cracheuse de Flammes is a glowing, haunting, spicy rose fragrance. It is a pure perfume.
Serge Lutens Cracheuse de Flammes - Section d'Or line is part of 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. He has chosen not to release any notes from the fragrances within this collection. Each description or list of notes that I have describing the fragrance was obtained from various perfume blog sites.
from kafkaesqueblog - "Cracheuse de Flammes can be summed up as a rose soliflore for the first half of its life, a rose that quickly cycles through various different mini-stages or profiles, thanks to the accompanying notes. It’s first wild and woody like a briar rose, then fruity, liqueured, and woody, before gaining an additional, mossy green note via the tuberose, before ending up as a woody rose and carnation duet atop a vaguely leathery, resinous base. In the second half of its life, it’s primarily an intensely clean, floral musk with a lingering vestige of roses."
Spicy incense rose one reviewer states.
