Reviews of Noir

It is easy to dismiss this beauty, an untrained nose will certainly think it cheap. However the creamy, woody, tobacco takes time to enjoy. If you are a fan of Baldessarini by Hugo Boss, you will love this. And it is related to Guerlain's L'Instant de Guerlain.

What you get:
somewhat sweet, creamy gourmand tobacco, hint of chocolate/caramel. Definitely noir but not the black tar burnt rubber type. Works best in cooler weather, classy or dressy environment.

Sub-par department store dross. Most of the money obviously went on the tacky bottle (Like a cigarette lighter! Cool!); it surely didn't pay for the synthetic swill within. If you are looking for a minty lavender, try Centaure by MPG. Granted it isn't as sweet as this; but then there is no bitter pill to sugar-coat.

I had been looking to fill a slot in my wardrobe for a fruity fresh woodsy scent with some spice and luckily happened upon across STD Noir. This well designed and presented juice hit the mark for me and then some. Had the great Xeryusff old decided to recreate itself for the new millenium with a hint more seductive power, then Noir would be that sensual yet fresh creation. Upon testing, Drakar Noir and Xeryus instantly came to mind. After an hour or so, Black XS along with Neotantric Manic Love for men were clearly in attendance, both of which are always compelling and addictive in their own right. It must be that dark fruity yumminess from the blackberry. But whatever the exact notes, Noir is one of those value packed, largely belying its quality, little fragrance gems that takes a place proudly along the niche creations in my collection.

Strange how several reviews mention mint - I don't get any mint at any stage of Noir's development. Just goes to show how personal and changeable scents are! What I get is a very fruity (blackberry seems to be a particularly strong note) and powdery opening which dries down to a light oriental base with that lovely blackberry hanging on in the background right to the end. Excellent value for money and a 2000s scent which gladly shies away from the general 2000s crowd of oceanics, ozonics and 80s chypre revivals.
