    I smell the vestiges and promise of a sexy patchouli rose with an earthy narcissus, but it is all edged with a slight dark berry fruit note that turns kind of burnt. I'm familiar with this note, as I often run afoul of it. In the case of Lumiere Noire it's influence is small, probably because it's not a large component, but it still renders the fragrance unwearable.

    romantic rose

    I forgot I had a sample of this, but when I discovered this I was enraptured. It's a gorgeous uplifting rose...and I have been on a rose quest for years now. A smite of patchouli opens it and anchors it down..and then there is an overlay of fresh dewiness..of petals or warm clean skin. A very human rose.

    I don't really know how this would play on a man's skin..but I'd certainly be interested in that figure. This evokes a poet type...waves and curls in his hair, billowy white get the idea.....the scent is somehow pure and complex. I'm very besotted with this one.

    Pros: beautiful rose, light muskiness

    Few components for a great new classic floral with a plenty of mystery and balance. The rose is austere and well combined with a nocturnal note of narcissus that spaces out the austerity of the rose with more indolic/penetrating floral sparks. The note of patchouli is the spicy backbone of the composition around which the spicy/floral components circulate in a cryptic valzer of classicism and refinement. The spices are pungent and sweet while some secret ripe fruity component is possibly hidden somewhere. A great, deep, rich, full bodied rose coming out articulated, spicy/floral, dusty (pepper, ambergris?), more than vaguely baroque, slightly soapy/waxy and adumbrated (by rooty/spicy elements).

    l find this to be quite a fresh, cool, soapy but elegant rose; a much "cleaner" scent than l was expecting. More of a pale pink or white rose than a dark, ruby red. There's a hint of sweet fruit in the heart, along with a narcissus which is beautiful but devoid of any dirtiness. ln the base, the patchouli is barely detectable & again, very clean, not earthy at all. The projection is low, & four hours in it's barely there.
    l need to try this one in warmer weather, as l suspect a little heat may bring out more of the darkness & dirt that l craved from it. And for me this is definitely more of a spring/summer fragrance than a winter one.

    Absolutely gorgeous, could easily be a modern classic. I get narcissus, though it's not too heady, subtle rose, and clean patchouli grounding the skanky notes (eg cumin) on my skin. If anything it prevents it from becoming a clinical, soapy floral (many modern florals are)..
    Lumiere noire is not a casual scent- it almost demands some class! Well balanced, feminine and unique with excellent sillage and longevity.

    A sexy gorgeous complex and well contructed perfume by the talented Mr. K . I got spicey rose and patchouli which did 'sort of ' remind me of Aromatics Elixir . It's beautiful and darkly sexy .
