Douce amère

Exclusive bottle

A new take on the demonic green fairy, "Douce-amère is a delightful reminder of the elaborate ceremony of the absinthe drinker. Through a perforated spoon balanced on the glass, the drinker will let the water from his carafe drip onto a cube of white sugar which will slowly dissolve and mix with the emerald blood of the absinthe. For unmitigated bitterness!

With their rounded shoulders and apothecary stopper, the delightfully old-fashioned luxury of the exclusive bottles played a key role in forging the Serge Lutens reputation. Taking us back to basics with a perfume which is dabbed on with the finger, these very special bottles were initially only available from Serge Lutens’ Palais Royal shop in Paris. Today, they are distributed on a slightly larger scale to reach the growing number of aficionados.
