Cracheuse de Flammes Fragrance Reviews

Jean B Grenouille

Ah, La Belle Époque again..

A wonderfully boozy and sweet-metallic apricot and pear compôte opens up for a glorious golden-ambered Rose Otto, magnificent and sultry, decadent, flamboyant and rich, surrounded by dancing musk and underscored by dark, supple and elegant calf skin leather.

Over the top but in a classy way and never messy Cracheuse de Flammes is a scent I'd love to encounter late one night on a balcony over the roofs of Paris, worn by a woman dressed in red sipping liquor who can speak of the things I dearly remember and whose name I won't be told.

Lutens bottles dreams like no other.


Upon applying Cracheuse de Flammes on my skin, I envision a dainty, tiny pink rose bud, still retaining a fresh greenness and ready to bloom. However, the fragrance soon takes an unexpected turn: a deluge of metallic aldehyde and crystalline clean musk sweeps the rose off, leaving only a minty, even mentholated-like note behind. This distinct metallic greenness is quite bold on my skin. As someone who enjoy Laine de Verre, I find this phase of Cracheuse de Flammes also quite interesting, even though the supposed protagonist - the rose - is far far away from the center stage.

After about 90 minutes, this metallic shimmer dissipates, and the rose resurfaces. The rose here is still very dainty. Even though it also has a fruity jammy sweetness (sometimes even veering to rose candy), the fact that it's bathed in a sea of white musk, makes it feel very nebulous in nature. This already hazy rose eventually gets pushed to the sideline by a peachy white musk base after about 5 hours, and Cracheuse de Flammes remains largely so until the very end.

The sillage is very soft from the start, and becomes extremely discreet once the metallic aspect disappears. The longevity is around 6 hours.

I found the metallic green phase in the beginning of Cracheuse de Flammes intriguing, and thought that it would fit nicely in the export range among his recent releases which all feature more or less some metallic cleanness. However, the blurry rose and white musk dry down lacks distinction, originality and more importantly, the Lutens magic in his earlier offerings. Needless to say, I would not particularly recommend this fragrance, especially considering its price.


The most expensive fragrance of the Section d'Or line is a pure shame.
A faint cosmetic rose with aldehydic facets. Fresh, no sillage, no longevity. For only 600 euros!!!


An olfactory platitude, this is little more than a plumped-up rose perfume over a light vanilla and tuberose base. It’s huge and migraine-inducing, smelling like a cross between some ‘80s power-dresser fragrance and something from a tween-celeb line. Although I’m sure it’s loaded with top-shelf materials (well, not so sure actually), it delivers very little given its brazen price tag. I can’t see any need for something like this to exist.


Magnificent silky, slightly powdery, radiant, luminous from within Bulgarian rose of the highest quality, in parfum concentration, paired to subtle hints of liquored fruitiness, but very restrainedly so, and dark, dry, dusty leather. Perfect combination!
Beautifully formulated, quintessential timeless classic, quietly elegant, presented in the most luxurious insane out of this world packaging, of course reminiscent of Nombre Noir's black octagonal Chinese glass bottle, and perhaps the composition in itself can be viewed as a tribute to Lutens' legendary 1981 creation for Shiseido.

Cracheuse de flammes is a sophisticated New York woman going to the Met opera for a Wagnerian performance or out to a dinner date at The Modern in Haider Ackermann or Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent "le smoking" blazer.

Notes listed on the Fall 2015 Barneys catalog : Rose otto, apricot, pear, amber $700 Basenotes adds leather.

According to Le Monde Le liquide inflammable de Serge Lutens 10/7/15 interview, this fragrance was originally assessed to be around €1000, they decided to sell it below cost.


In general all the perfumes of the "Gold" collection are very direct in their reading of the notes, there is not much evolution. The quality is high enough without doubt, do we smell the difference with all the other Lutens? not really. They would have made great additions to the normal collection and we can not help thinking that this price is a profitability operation of little elegance.
Cracheuse de Flammes is a pretty rose-oud, fresh at first and that powdered as and when it evolves with carnation, tubereuse and iris. The background remains very woody but it is reminiscent of some old Guerlain, a grandmother style in the best sense.
Very classic.

So, this is one of the 50ml colognes from Serge Lutens priced at $600? God knows what is inside and outside the juice! What an incendiary product! Of course, the name says it all!
