Cloves, which thanks to the bitter orange peel can experience a summer trip
The purism that is supposed to be inherent in this fragrance, the only two ingredients listed above and also the diabolic color were the reason why I ordered this lutens for testing.

Orange peel and clove (elsewhere you read about tangerine and nutmeg) really set the tone here and the colour truly matches the contents.

The orange peel itself is the crass determinant at the beginning. Harvested almost somewhat unripe, a hearty, slightly bitter, but refreshingly spicy peel pierces the nose, whereby the flanking clove does not exactly stop behind the mountain. Some people may think of Christmas, but the complete absence of winter aromas (such as vanilla or amber) makes it possible to draw the clove into warmer climates.

When I recently tasted a red wine aged in a Bourbon barrel in my Insta wine blog, I realized once again how much the presence or absence of just one single component can shift the overall structure. The wine slipped aromatically completely into the winter category, as it had lost all of its bright fruitiness due to the sweetness and candy like quality of the whiskey cask and had put on a windbag coat
Here now it works the opposite way: The dominance of the per se summery orange (peel) allows for completely different atmospheric associations, although I fear that one or the other (as can be read below) is so strongly influenced by carnation=winter in his life experience that the head cinema inevitably starts up and chases the Christmas market visit through his head.

Nevertheless, it's an interestingly made scent, a little too present at the back, which is a little too violent with the carnation, especially in the middle part (when the orange fades). But worth testing.

Kretek with orange peel
Many Lutens fragrances from the COLLECTION NOIRE are too much for me. I recognize the quality, but I don't like to smell them on myself, because they are often too loud and roomy for me.

With the rather light fragrances from the series LES EAUX DE POLITESSE I haven't found anything so far. I also didn't like the new one at the first test. The carnation is too annoying. My first association: it smells like a Kretek cigarette.

Attracted by the unusual emerald-green color of the perfume I tasted again last weekend and was surprised. Now the citric orange came through well and together with the pleasantly spicy clove it developed into a great, warm, strangely patchouli-like scent.

Lutens describes Des clous pour une pelure as an invigorating and purifying fragrance.

I think so too. And he looks pretty good next to my Pink After Shave in the bathroom.
