Description

 Serge Lutens La Vierge de Fer (the Iron Maiden--a medieval torture device) - a lily amongst the thorns. The fragrance was inspired by Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon and with the name Iron Maiden we were expecting a darker fragrance but La Vierge de Fer is rather delicate.  It starts out more jasminey and the lily comes in later.  It is more of a soft, intimate floral fragrance with none of the notes you would expect from the marketing materials for this fragrance.

According to Fragrantica the fragrance also pays tribute to Serge's own mother and past traumas for the semi-abandonded Serge (much like a device of torture would reference), who was left to the safekeeping of relatives by his mother at a tender age.  This fragrance is in the floral fragrance group.  

Reviews of Serge Lutens La Vierge de Fer from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose. 

from luxirare - "La Vierge de Fer smells extremely clean and pure and this doesn’t come as a surprise since its dominant note is the lily. It is white, towering, and virtuous. Not one bit sordid, ambiguous, without any slides toward sweet carnal excesses or funeral allusions; the lily is, in this case, a central glorious and crystalline piece. You can feel the frankincense, but vaguely, far from being a practical presence."

from boisdejasmin - "I dabbed the pale, grey tinted liquid on my skin and took a deep breath. I inhaled jasmine; its green twigs, yellow pollen and crinkly petals unfolded one by one as I stood with my nose pressed to the pulse point on my wrist. Every time I’ve worn La Vierge de Fer since then, I’ve noticed other elements–the fizzy, silvery sparkle, the waxy lily petals, the warm musky sweetness, but I still can’t shake off my initial impression of being wrapped in a soft jasmine veil."

    Gentle but complicated lady

    This lily perfume is not heavy or heady. There is a sense of spring and everyday femininity to it. BUT. Once it settles, the metallic undertones shift the mood and the pretty turns to more complex. Which I really appreciate. It's a great everyday soft white flower.
