Serge Lutens – Douce Amere

Perfume: Douce Amere
Perfumer: Serge Lutens
Source: Luckyscent
Size: 1mL

Luckyscent Notes: Absinthe, cinnamon, anise, lily, jasmine, tiare, tagette, marigold, musk, cedar

Date: 12/6/07 Weather: 30 degrees, cold and clear

Comments: Starts very green. Then powder. Becomes a sweet vanilla almond that lasts all day. This is a very interesting journey scent with very distinct stages.

Date: 2/25/08 Weather: 38 degrees, clear

Comments: Starts green and herbal with healthy dose of sweetness. Then becomes quite woody with some licorice through it. Within 15 minutes, begin picking up some flowers with the wood and anise. Can’t quite identify them, but I think the lily is most dominant. There is an alcohol note that appears about 30 minutes in. This lasts about 15-30 minutes, then I get the vanilla/almond dry down. Quit being able to smell this about 6 hours later.
