    Ébène by Pierre Balmain

    An overwhelming composition of dark woods, oriental spice, santal and musk, that used to be my singature fragrance in the 80¹s, when it was launched.
    So strong and longlasting, that it’s more like a hit in face when you first encounter it - like a male but even stronger version of POISON from Dior.
    An absolutely outstanding fragrance, that screams „Attention!!!!!!“ where ever you appear!!
    Not so much suiteable for the very sporty or younger men and it definitly requires a touch of class and a certain attitude to wear.
    Still avialable in selected perfume stores in France, when I was there in March 2004.
