Reviews of Encre Noire

Just tried it for the first time today and I am sold. It is categorized as masculine but, in my opinion, this is unisex. I find the opening to be very feminine but, once you get about an hour into it, it calms down and becomes a light and sophisticated unisex. Some people describe it as having a "pencil shavings" quality so I expected it to be extremely woody based on that description. But I'm not picking up a lot of woody fragrance. The overall character reminds me of sniffing the dirt in a dry-ish flower pot immediately after the flowers have been rooted out of it. Fresh and green but grounded and earthy. What people call inkiness I would call chalkiness but, once again, it's very balanced and not overbearing. Reminds me of the scent of a clay flowerpot. It's earthy, fresh, gently soapy and, after it calms down, has no offensive qualities whatsoever. Deserves the hype and I look forward to getting to know this fragrance.

This is a very unique fragrance. It has sweet, muddy notes that remind me of Cartier's Declaration D'un Soir which I absolutely love, however, with Encre Noire I'm indifferent. The opening blast smells like wet clay or something dark and morbid you'd find in a cemetery. As the dry down approaches, it begins to smell like some kind of chemical. I bought this as a blind buy after many reviewers gave this fragrance a 50/50 chance of being likeable. I would have to say that they're right which is why I'm in the middle with this fragrance.

One of the very best. For me it doesn't really get much better than this. A compliment magnet and a truly classy fragrance. As far as dark and woody fragrances are concerned this is truly the benchmark for me. The initial spray may come off a bit overwhelming but just wait for the incredible dry-down! Long lasting beauty in a bottle.

Encre Noir - Lalique
Beautiful and very competent perfume that paints an 'ultraclean vetiver with ragged edges still-life' with little but efficient brush-strokes. The opening is green and cool with a 'fresh' paint and small inky note that reminds me of a mix of basil and styrax but probably is just due to a high-quality cypress-wood oil. It is a steady factor with waxy-herbal, resionous nuances and whiffs of fresh pine-needles that fits the vetiver perfectly. It creates a tight and steady theme of dark ink that alltogether meets the earthy nuances of the vetiver with a clean, light-smoky and soapy-soft woody-amber base. The dryout is warm and cool at the same time which gives it a nice tension and a sort of 'calm' energetic sparkle. Very nice work.

I don;t know what ink is supposed to smell like but this smells of wood, more wood and even more wood. It's like a handful of cedar sawdust and pencil shavings.

It's powerful and long-lasting but I don't really want to smell like a freshly turned chairleg!

The initial blast is very ethereal. It becomes less offensive but it stays put. Not like the usual perfumer's alcohol that still has to evaporate. It's more like a whiff of a VOC with hidden in there the wood notes of this fragrance.

I see now that it's probably the combination of Cypress, Cashmere wood and Bourbon Vetiver.

Hours later it still has this working with wood and turpentine feel to it for me.
