    Dark woody stuff turning during the drydown into a woody-incensey thing vaguely reminescent of some of the Duchaufour's works. That's it. If you like sharp (yet not overpowering) woody frags, go ahead. Smells ok but reminds me of 55 thousands other compositions available of the market. Sort of Montale-ish type of woods + some incense.

    Slightly and balanced sweetness, a good masculine. Jubilation wannabe on drydown? Anyway this is good.

    A very well composed masculine scent by a french perfumer written all over; the start is already woody and dry, the heart arrives after 30 minutes or so and remains woody dry, not sweet or powdery for ages; the drydown is also divine, dry, masculine, strong, firm and very well executed.

    Good ingredients and blending with good longevity; 1 spray kept me wrapped up while cycling in the park for 3 hours and carried on non-stop till it was time to shower and re-apply again.

    Big thumbs up Mr Guichard!

    Straight-down-the-middle woody, which balances sharp, dry notes with sweeter aspects nicely, and has a natural feel. Unfortunately that’s all there is to it. Still, it’s a relief to come across a woody perfume these days and be reminded more of the real thing rather than the nostril-drying super aromachemicals so frequently encountered. Bois Noir could be comfortable everyday wear for the unadventurous and is probably safe to wear on a flight, but for those of us who seek the furthest vistas of perfumery’s horizon, there’s bound to be a ‘so what?’ moment pretty soon. A lovely wooden chest, but don’t go seeking the mystique promised by the ‘noir’ appellation. Wears light but perceptible.

    Nice enough, but smells derivative. No urge to purchase on that basis.
