Eau de Citron Noir fragrance notes

Reviews of Eau de Citron Noir

Simply one of the worst things I've ever smelled, like kerosene and bug spray. I get nothing other than these two overwhelming notes. It adheres to the rule that the worst perfumes are the longest lived. I tried to wash it off with soap and water, then cover it with a good scent, and I could still smell it hours later. I wish I could try this with a friend to know what they think. I won't even give this to Goodwill. I contacted Hermes to tell them what I thought- no reply yet.

Lazy and unnecessary.

The topnotes are nice - but what topnotes aren't nice in a citrus scent?

Once the lemon fades - in comes the synthetic woody amber that's so strong it could turn a regular dog into a werewolf.

Smokiness makes for a bitter/sour note. A little too intense and surprisingly long lasting compared to the other Hermes fragrances I've tried. Not for me.

On my skin, Eau de Citron Noir is dominated by lemon and smoky notes almost in equal measure.

The opening lemon note is wonderful! Its aromatic, almost herbal peel is the first to greet my nose, and the ripe, juicy pulp soon follows. Its tartness is no longer piquant like that of a fresh lemon, but slightly fermented like the luscious tart-sweetness of confit lemons.

However, the smoky note that appears roughly 20 minutes later, turns out to be a big disappointment to me. It's not the leathery, rounded smokiness of black tea that I had hoped, but the ubiquitous, arid woody amber aromachemicals that are omnipresent in many designer and niche fragrances aiming at a male clientele. I have to admit that this type of ingredients are not among my favourite, but when it's carefully blended within like Mona di Orio Bohea Bohème or Rania J Ambre Loup, at least I can tolerate. However, in Eau de Citron Noir, this smoky note is left in bare spotlight with almost nothing to round its edges, which presents much difficulty for me to appreciate the fragrance in general.

Fortunately, the smoky note finally merges with the lovely lemon note about 1 hour in, and Eau de Citron Noir now maintains this delicious sweet-tart lemon with the acrid woody smoky undertone until it disappears after about 9 hours. The sillage is mostly moderate.

Personally, I enjoy the lemon note very much. Its luscious sweetness balanced by the fermented tartness makes it a rare comforting citrus fragrance for colder months. Sadly, the choice of smoky note is way out of my comfort zone, and its presence actually compromises the beauty of the delectable lemon note instead of creating an unexpected olfactory effect. Therefore, I would recommend it as a warm citrus fragrance, but only to those who are not sensitive to woody amber aromachemicals in general.

Longevity 12 h amazing for "Cologne"

Lemon , lime , black tea and "smoked woods"

No sugar, which is surprising, while there is plenty in too much perfume, the longevity is that of an "extract" (pure perfume) onto my skin

Classy, Chic, New smoky.
