    Stendhal Elixir Noir by Stendhal

    The interaction between patchouli, balsams, cranberries, sultry flowers, heavy woods and red pepper berries is frankly too much heavy and oppressing to me. I smell effectively some resemblances with Diamante Nero by Renato Balestra and with Black Xs For Her (as idelly mixed with some cloying Jacobs for women) because of that sort of typical claustrophobic and sultry vanillic/fruity/floral combination over darkened by woods and patchouli. Wonderful bottle and nice creamy (almost white) beginning unfortunately soon morphing towards a sort of "violety" syrupy/vanillic mélange too much "rich" for my taste.
