Let’s take a look at Serge Lutens‘ L’Innommable, a unisex, resinous, ambery, immortelle and floral leather fragrance.
L’Innommable is an eau de parfum that launched in 2018.
My guess for the notes:
Davana apricot, rum, bergamot, dried fruits, cumin, immortelle, styrax, cedar, patchouli, vetiver, jasmine, tuberose, civet, labdanum, benzoin, methol, honey, herbaceousness, jasmine, tuberose, vanillin/vanilla & an ISO-like thing.
In the first tweet of the review below, forgive the exhaustion-induced error regarding Parfum d’Empires. I meant to say Histoires de Parfums. (I always tie the two brands in my head for some reason.) As you’ll see in reading the scent description, HdP’s 1740 Marquis de Sade came to mind quite a bit, then a bit of HdP’s Tubéreuse 3 Animale.

1. Highly mixed feelings which become more unenthused as every hr progresses, partially bec. of the davana's screechy synthetic quality.

Bottom line, I prefer the Histoires de Parfums and Naomi Goodsir fragrances. L’Innommable is worth a sniff, I suppose, if you’re a fan of the notes and the genres of perfumery. Personally, I find it forgettable, subpar, disappointing, and highly overpriced.
