The upcoming Sarrasins by Serge Lutens, it has now been revealed, will have its jasmine-based scent colored a deep purple, hence we can now understand better that the reference to ink is partly literal as evoked by the words "petrifyingly beautiful jasmine, gloved in black ink the color of bats."
Louve, an almond-based scent will, interestingly too, be colored in white. We remember seeing a milky-colored and opalescent perfume once and we absolutely loved the added charm and mystery it created.
We love perfumes that frankly play with colors!
