Reviews of Korloff Noir

A soapy-incensey watery vetiver, that's finally Korloff Noir. Noir is sharp and aqueous (vaguely a la Amethyst Lalique- first part of the development) and with a final dark/damp vetiver-cedarwood prominent accord surrounded by a typically fluidy-metallic cool frankincense (with a soapy background couteracting the angular vibe). Especially the opening is powerfully sharp, lemony, cool and dusty (a dry accord of black pepper and bergamot). Frankly I don't detect in particular saffron while an orris root's presence provides an earthy botanical cool vibe. The dry down is properly woody (and still angular) but encompassed by a general (vaguely dusty) incensey soapiness. A huge bergamot, orris root and woods overly darken the fragrance. The aroma is really "eastern" (it could appear like a typical japanese meditative scent a la Shiseido Zen Black classic and the note of papyrus enhances this typical woody-sharp "oriental" vibe). An interesting fragrance which is too sharply minimal and out of my style anyway. Not bad, for the lovers of sharp meditative moody aromas.

It's a good oriental woody fragrance but there is nothing special or unique here.
Start a little strong with dark woody notes. I can smell oud in the opening but there is no oud in note breakdown. maybe it's papyrus wood and incense combo which give us that oud vibe but I'm sure it's there.
There is a sweetness in the opening too. dark, woody and sweet.
The oud vibe is not medicinal at all. it's very smooth and wearable.
In the dry down, the oud and sweet notes settle down and some floral notes from saffron and iris joining the party! pleasant smell.
Above average projection and longevity.
As I said before, it's a decent release from the house but there is nothing unique and special at all!
Save your money!!
