Lalique will be launching Encre Noire Sport in September/October



From Lalique's website:

As elegant as ever but even more dynamic, Lalique’s iconic masculine fragrance writes a sequel to its story in black ink. This new interpretation is
driven by the codes of Sport, combined with the House’s luxury and refinement. Between the dusky lines of its signature woody notes, a wave of
freshness unfurls.


The Sport version keeps the architecture of the original bottle but takes on new colors. A refined shade of gray now dresses the streamlined glass
cube inspired by René Lalique’s “Biches” Inkwell, designed in 1913.


In the top notes, a burst of energizing grapefruit and bergamot is boosted by a bracing wind of cypress and subtly aromatic lavandin


In the heart, an aquatic accord splashed with nutmeg breathes freshness into two varieties of vetiver : the warm, lush, leathery Vetiver Bourbon and the mysterious, boldly smoky Vetiver Haiti


The base notes, musks and Cashmere wood seal the olfactive imprint of Encre Noire Sport



Same perfumer as for Encre Noire, Nathalie Lorson.


I think this could be good. I never warmed up to Encre Noire, it was too dry and bleak for me, so something a little lighter sounds interesting.
