From the depths, I have cried out to you, O Lord! Inspired in part by Psalm 130, De Profundis is a love poem to resurrection, both of the soul and of nature. This fragrance opens on a thrilling note of new plant growth pushing rudely through wet soil, ripping its way into the weak sunshine. A haze of violets, chrysanthemums, muguet, and hyacinth chills the wearer like a dawn mist, creating a floral harmony so beautiful and so delicate that one is afraid it will collapse at any moment.
It doesn’t. The metallic, green, and watery aromas of emerging plant life are grounded by the earthier, velvety notes of soil and violet petals. The end result is a perfume that manages to suggest new life while remaining ever so slightly wistful and melancholic in tone. In the base, the ethereal florals are wreathed in smoke, incense, and earth, a reminder of our own eventual return to the ground.
Serge Lutens’ exclusive Palais Royal line is now available in a travel atomizer set that includes a metal case, two 30ml refills (for a total of 60ml of juice), and a funnel. What We Think A wonderfully fresh, bright, green floral- you can practically smell the dew on the chrysanthemum blooms.
