I tried it, liked it. But everybody I asked if they liked it, did not. With a firm "no". It's strong stuff, and because I hang out with these people a lot, I decided not to buy it as to not offend them.
I understand fragrances are a personal choice and you should buy what you want, but they attack olfactory sense which has more of a physiological impact on the person than does sight. It's okay to wear shoes you love but your close ones don't, because all they have to do is not look at them. Fragrance is very intrusive, however, and it's hard to avoid if you are in the same car with the same people often.
I prefer noir absolu to the original though. It seems a bit less floral and more sharp, slightly darker citrus. More balanced I would say, but stronger as a whole.
