Serge Lutens Daim Blond means "white suede." An interesting pairing with apricot give this a luxe leather feel that is smooth, the softest possible leather with just a hint of sweet, very complex in how the notes play together. Serge Lutens is in the Chypre Floral fragrance group.
Reviews of Serge Lutens Daim Blond from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose.
from perfumeposse - "First Serge Lutens I tried, I believe, and it went into my spreadsheet as “ohmyyy, this is challenging.” Well, not anymore. It’s great, with a lovely spiced apricot patina over the suede."
from perfumesmellinthings - "Apricot and suede notes appear simultaneously as soon as Daim Blond is applied to my skin, these two notes are the most prominent to my nose and continue to go side by side and are noticeable till the very drydown. Other notes appear and disappear as the fragrance develops. Iris shows briefly among the top notes, cardamom and heliotrope pop up in the middle stage, and musk is quite evident in the drydown, doing what musk does best, bringing a little animalic oomph to the composition. The drydown also has a certain dark nuttiness/ slight powderiness that I associate with hawthorn, one of my favorite notes.
Daim Blond is a sumptuous scent, it is rich, warm and, as much as I love it, I must admit it is often rather overwhelming in hot weather. It is however stunning on cold days and absolutely exquisite in minus temperatures; every note becomes clearly defined and practically sings in the icy air. The staying power of this scent is commendable, ten, sometimes twelve hours on my skin."
