Perfume Description

Perfume Name Serge Lutens Fourreau Noir
Year Introduced 2009
Perfumer Christopher Sheldrake
Gender Unisex
Collection  Exclusive Bottles - Resineux/Ambres
Notes Tonka bean, lavender, musk, almond and smoky accents
Country of Origin France

 

Serge Lutens Fourreau Noir was created by Christopher Sheldrake. It starts with a blast of incense, abating slowly, revealing a milky almond, tonka smoky core. As I noted when I reviewed it in 2009 - "it’s the Sonic Drive-in where Encens et Lavande, Chergui and Fumerie Turque all show up, their brakes go out simultaneously, and they all wind up in an incredibly interesting jumble on the menu, something like: 'Lavender Pancake Syrup with Hookah.' It's Serge Lutens so that's pretty normal and not nearly the mess it sounds like.

This from Fragrant Fanatic's review - "I'm thinking about a post apocalypse movie photage. First you see a deserted city, houses in ruins, fires, rubble everywhere. You zoom in on the rubble and you see it consists of burned childrens' toys and smashed up household items. If anyone remembers the intro of Terminator 2 you know what I mean. Then the camera zooms out and in the midsts of all destruction there is a single lunatic in a tattered robe, conducting a caricature of a Catholic mass by himself. That's the start of Forreau Noir."

I think I like that description a lot. Starts out as complete chaos, with no idea what it will become, just strap yourself in for the journey, it's not boring.

Product Reviews

  1. Well crafted but not my cup of tea 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2015

    I enjoyed my sample. However, my taste leans away from the sweeter scents. This almost feels a bit mainstream for a Lutens/Sheldrake creation. I hesitate to designate scents to gender, but Fourreau Noir does seem overtly feminine to me, perhaps not quite so much at the start, but certainly in the middle. It would be interesting to smell on a man. I liked the distinctive lavender laced opening, but as it wore it got sweeter. No idea where reviewer 1 gets the dirty water note from - puzzling.


  2. Disappointed! 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2015

    I love serge lutens, I keep chergui in stock and was very eager to smell this perfume.its very hard to find too.. One word. Janitorial. Lol. Is that even a word. Just smelled like dirty water. Thanks god you can get samples on surrender to chance. Didn't spend a lot so at least it didn't break the bank


  3. Sophisticated, distinctive, unique 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2015

    This was gorgeous, from the ethereal lavender to the the almonds. Both skin scent and sillage. And utterly unique. I think some May find it masculine but those are arbitrary gender categories. I'm just hesitating between a decant vs full bell jar. For a full review which I totally agree with:

  4. one of serges masterpieces 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2015

    A magnificent scent, whenever i put it on i feel like a femme fatale. It hugs my skin with such sensuality and grace like a black dress would. It is a strong, persistent scent, Could easily be worn by a man also.
    It is top on my full size to buy.
