Baptême du Feu is an intensely floral scent which opens with a vibrant tangerine. Drying down to a smokey osmanthus with hints of ginger and spice, Baptême du Feu is a warm spicy floral typical of the Serge Lutens canon.

Baptism by Fire. It's a phrase we know, words chosen by Serge Lutens to describe that moment when we are so new to something that we are overwhelmed by the intensity of the experience, when, thrown into the battleground of life, we have to learn the hard way. This may be one way to describe this new scent, the first creation in which we baptize ourselves in the smokeness of gunpowder. Perhaps we too are overwhelmed.

Serge places the inspiration for this new perfume at the funfair, the mardi-gras with fireworks, gunpowder, gingerbread and spices heavy in the floral night air.
