Reviews of Framboise Noire


Interesting. Like a fruitier Jubilation xxv. A big oud opening but then goes lighter and even a bit soapy. Less complex than the Amouage and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing - musky ouds are a bit all in or not at all. Definitely pleasant - just a bit in no-man’s-land.

Framboise Noire from Shay & Blue smells a lot like Vikt from Slumberhouse, but instead of having a resinous quality, it has the sweet raspberry note with the licorice note. It is really, really nice! The berry note reminds me partially of the berry note in Imaginary Authors A City on Fire. There is also an atmospheric presence as well, with a woody note mixed in for good measure in the dry down. Highly enjoyable! I'm glad of this purchase and am enjoying it a lot! Two thumbs up!

Framboise Noire, Black Raspberry, indeed starts off with raspberries (duh!) and also cranberries, spicy ones, providing a sharper vibe to the blend. It's both sweet and tart at the same time. Having worked in clubs/bars as a school job, it reminded me of grenadine very quickly. That thick and viscous red syrup that is often used at the bottom of drinks. While the recipe is changed some times, it's made with pomegranate, raspberries, strawberries, sugar for the sweeter side and currant and lemon for the bitter part. And this is what I get out of Framboise Noire in the opening phase.

Those sweet and sour berries are covered by a good whiff of smoke, making them turn to a dark shade or red and purple. They are laying on a base of black woods that have absorbed the smell of those wild fruits.

Once the opening spray has settled down and that my nose gets used to the scent (The perception of others around me could be different) depending of your point of view either the “wow factor” or the part that is too loud and sticky sweet tones down a lot and the fragrance becomes a lot more “wearable”. We keep the tainted berries vibe but it is much more subdued and not nearly as rich. It is now covered by a brighter almost powdery musk.

At this moment, you are no longer in the middle of this gloomy, kind of Gothic field of raspberries and cranberries, submerged by its aroma. You've left a minute ago, walking your way through the night, but a breeze still carries its smell to your nose.
