Tuberose is tricky. In Serge Lutens DATURA NOIR, it is very, very thick, in large part, I believe, due to the marked coconut note. Coconut...
Datura not so Noir
Serge Lutens: don’t take the word “noir “too seriously in this perfume because you’ll find instead a lot of white from coconut, tuberose, almonds all enveloped in creamy vanilla, in other words how “noir” can a suntan lotion smell? We are talking about a tropical frangrance (perhaps... Read more

Sweet, Honeyed Floral...
There is something so intoxicating about this one. Like a narcotic flower which seduces with it's sweet decadent aroma. Datura Noir reminds me that Serge Lutens knows how to make astonishingly rich, decadent floral compositions. I'm taking about A La Nuit, the jasmine tuberose powerhouse, and my... Read more

Flirting with Death
I decided to risk killing myself and bought Datura noir--datura being angel's trumpet, favored for suicide in many parts of the world. In consolation in case I die, SL sent along two miniatures, two samples, and two cards of their solid perfumes. Fair enough. I love Datura noir. If it were the... Read more

A Tuberose to Admire...
I have finally found a Serge Lutens that I fell in love with, from start to finish. I was very skeptical about this fragrance, as it has a few notes that I don't usually go for. But,for some unknown reason, they worked so well on my skin, I was quite overcome with emotion! Tuberose is not one of my... Read more

19th century flash back
This strong flower scent transfers me to The Past. It makes me wonder about the smells I would have known, had I lived a hundred or a hundred and fifty years ago (a good period: the beginning of photography, Flaubert, Tchechov and Proust alive): kitchen scents (madeleine), wardrobe scents, candy...

1st stage Powdery marzipan with mint, fine, sun milk, soft and nice. I would say, that it is a perfect choice for summer, but after long years of parfum-mania I know myself better. I would wear it in winter, when it is cold outside and I got tired of darkness. Feminine character. 2nd... Read more

how to look at datura noir
from http://www.scenthurdle.com If I squint exceedingly hard, I can sometimes make out an individual part of Datura Noir. Almond, tonka, tuberose. Simply focussing shows me some combinations. Oh, that was that creamy-coconut/green-tuberose sort of tuberose. Hhmmm. That almond was a... Read more

Intoxicating coconut floriental.
Datura Noir doesn't contain datura , which is a plant from a genus that is known for its hallucinogenic and medicinal (atropine) properties. Apart from their poisonous nature, they apparently don't really have a smell of their own so the name is a word play and probably refers to the possibly... Read more

Reminds me of a Discontinued Masterpiece...
Tuberose is tricky. In Serge Lutens DATURA NOIR, it is very, very thick, in large part, I believe, due to the marked coconut note. Coconut is also tricky, and tends to overwhelm in more than minuscule doses. To my nose, this combination of tuberose and coconut is simply too heavy-handed. I love the... Read more

Longevity 7.5/10 Scent 5.0/10
Penetratingly sweet white flower scent at first spray, like a power blast of tuberose and ylang ylang. Mercifully, this becomes softer and more subdued as it develops. At drydown, Datura Noir actually morphs into a fairly gentle fragrance. I definitely pick up on the coconut and almond, which... Read more
