I love this so much, it smells beachy and exotic, love the coconut in it. Sexy summer fragrance.

A huge dollop of cream sprinkled with coconut and decorated with tropical flowers.

Such are the top notes of Datura Noir, blending delicious gourmand notes with glamorous exotic flowers. This isn’t the first time my nose witnesses this kind of a melange from Serge Lutens. On my skin, a relatively newer fragrance from the house, Un Lys, takes a similar approach, albeit muter. Datura …

I have smelt the real flower. This is the Datura in a bottle, not tuberose, although I believe tuberose is used to construct the scent. The top notes are heady, slightly green with a metallic edge, followed by a huge coconut note. I also smell almond and some rasins. The overall affect is very buttery.

Lasting power is poor, gone in less than 2 hours.

I’m not fond of floral or white flower based perfumes. I generally much prefer the scent of ancient rituals, smoke curls from burning resin, and other fragrances evocative of odalisques languishing on brocade cushions or shadowy cathedrals, tempered with a little vanilla or something warm and gourmand. Burning incense and baking cakes. That said, I think Serge Lutens’ Datura noir is lovely, and …Read more

This started out as my favorite SL in the export bottles. I still love dousing myself in its almost satirical tropic/coconut/beach oil scent.
The thing is, I wonder how many 'fumes used this aroma in the past? It would not surprise me if SL was in the vanguard.
I sprayed it this morning, on a late, humid, dying summer day with a lot of cu-nim (thunderstorm) uplift from early …

White flowers and evergreen medication, maybe lily in there? Hmmm. Very eh. Dries to Liddle Kiddle pink flowers in the end and just cloys. Nothing here I like overmuch, certainly none of the lovely listed notes really comes up for me. Sad.

I don't understand this Serge Lutens perfume either. The others I don't understand are Arabie and Santal Blanc (see reviews), but where those too are just disgusting smelling, sickening and too much, Datura Noir is the other way around .. It's too little. It smells a-ok to begin with, and then it fades .. and fades .. and then the last bit fades and I can't smell it at all …Read more

I would call Datura Noir a tropical oriental. Juicy coconut and heady tuberose combine in a thick, luscious harmony that never veers into the suntan lotion smell that coconut tends to create. Almond and tonka prop up the fragrance, adding just enough sweetness to add a bit of lightness without it Datura Noir going gourmand. Despite all these heavy notes Datura Noir never goes headache-inducing …Read more

Datura Noir is not a tropical perfume, at least not the common tropical one.
It's an interesting concoction of a toxic, poisonous plant (the datura) with a bitter almond note, a lot of creamy tuberose, coconut, and sweet osmanthus, that gives this typical sweet apricot note.
To me, this is a mix of a bitter/sweet that makes it interesting.
It's a heady, lush floral …

I really, really wanted to love this. Living in the desert, datura blooms are a narcotic delight in the evenings--large delicately scented white flowers that glow in the moonlight to attract night pollinators. Their fragrance is unique--light and translucent. Not creamy or murky at all. More like a tiny clear flute song. Datura Noir is a bit too sweet and heavy on my skin. Not exactly …Read more
