    Fantastic fragrance smelling on my skin like an ideal blend of Donna Karan Black Cashmere, Etro Messe de Minuit, Lutens Arabie and Tom Ford Amber Absolute with hints of the typical Slumberhouse's "complicated" (scratching) burnt sugar/licorice spicy tobacco undertone. Dry frankincense, earthy oud-patchouli, herbal-hesperidic patterns (throughout present as undertone), huge cinnamon, resinous labdanum, dark amber/tobacco with a suede caress. I prefer to go by soon beyond the stages of the olfactory evolution, just pointing out that Sahara Noir is misty, herbal, sultry, darkly exotic and voluptuous as a magic night out for tracks and alleys of a desert's village.

    Wonderfully smoky patchchouli hilights this fragrance...far more than just a basenote, it projects through the other notes listed in the profile. A bit of sweet orange and the violet accord sits behind the incense/patchouli. The tobacco melds into 5he patchouli. Black pepper? If it's there, it is fleeting at b best. SAHARA NOIR is delightful overall, mature and complex. Lasts over 6 hours on skin.

    Apparently aimed at a feminine market -- but really, this is such a dry, assertive scent that it seems quite masculine to me.
    Starts with dusky orange and resinous notes. Quickly moves to spice and smoky incense. The style is powerful and yet restrained. It seems intriguing, even haunting. Quite smoky at times, and at other times there is an earthy tang from the patchouli and oud. Wears very well and has great longevity.

    Sahar Noir is black amber anchoring a potion with lots of character. The amber is influenced with doses of frankincense, leather, tobacco, agarwood and beeswax for an experienced darkness that lasts and doesn't back down quickly or easily. Framed by some citrus and slight florals, but these background modifiers can not be identified easily and it is just fine for them to disappear into the atmosphere of Sahara Noir. I like the combination of darkness and light revealed in this Tom Ford beauty. Despite the marketing push towards women, Sahara Noir is a masculine, but with enough charisma and charm to smell great on either sex willing to brave the Sahara in the dark.

    The pyramid lists 25 notes. I can’t find or identify most of them in the scent. I’m not saying that those notes are not there, I’m saying is that the accords are so rich and smooth that I have difficulty separating one note from another. What I do smell is pepper, cinnamon, and incense dominating over enough labdanum and cypress/cedar which provide compelling and complementary foundation… Besides these notes that I can definitely identify, I would admit to the probability of there being rose, beeswax, and leather somewhere in the complexity. The rest?... Well, it is a complex scent, and I find it extremely linear – the last accord I smell is about the same as the first except that it has diminished in intensity.

    Sahara is a beautiful black, woodsy, resinous fragrance – a style that has become more than a bit popular in recent years. I does remind me somewhat of a much-more-refined Donna Karan Black Cashmere. It also holds similarities to Serge Luten’s Serge Noire and CdG’s Black and several other woodsy-noir niches. Sahara Noir is probably the smoothest, most refined of all of this type that I’ve tried: Possibly because Sahara Noir doesn’t take the inexpensive way out by loading up on cheaper spice notes instead of the more expensive wood and other rich-resinous notes which are found in Sahara Noir. It’s an excellent fragrance and it should be on the to-try list of someone looking for this type of deep, dark wood fragrance. Refined, sophisticated projection and, like most of its type, a little short on longevity... It is difficult keeping those powerful but refined accords going for hours and hours, but this one does a more than adequate job.

    For me this is a fabulously loud, strong, woody incense all the way. The projection is enormous with just one spray, & it lasts over twelve hours on me. The quality of frankincense here is very similar to that used in lncense Extreme. lncense Extreme has a lot more subtlety & complexity going for it, but l can't help but love Sahara Noir for being so powerfully, unashamedly INCENSE, & l don't see any reason why a woman shouldn't feel amazing wearing it.
