La Couche du Diable Eau de Parfum
La Couche du Diable Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Serge Lutens. The notes of this fragrance are Oud accord, cistus jam, fruity complex, rose
La Couche du Diable (we’ll choose to forego some of the raunchier translations and simply call it “The Devil’s Bed”) was bound to cause a fuss- after all, throughout his many releases, Serge Lutens has never before featured oud in a fragrance. But with that in mind, don’t expect anything resembling a typical oud scent. Oh, there’s an unmistakably high-quality oud in here- darkly woodsy, warm, and sweetly balsamic- but its more challengingly animalic tones are, if not subverted, at least channeled into resinous cistus and syrupy fruit-and-rose combination that incite a sense of deep, seductive comfort. Serge Lutens’ own copy describes La Couche du Diable as “a diabolical and sumptuous veil of indulgence and remorse for a first transgression.” We’d agree, up to a certain point- but if we’re being honest, when it comes to this stunning fragrance- remorse doesn’t even cross our mind.
