Now im thinking if its better to spend the amount of money on another NdN sometime later or get CF? Any suggestions please
I was facing the same dilemma as you & I purchased CF @ retail. Kinda regret it, just a bit, but I'm warming up to it.
Unlike what uve heard up above I'll tell u that this shudve been called Noir Pepper Rose. There is coffee in this (black coffee grounds), but not enough to claim status as a headliner. The Rose in this is not of the NdN jammy sort, it is more of the soapy Rose (Amouage Lyric man/Kilian in the City of Sin) type. It dries down to a soapy rose scent. I think it to be a haunting/creepy/weird concoction (perfect for halloween), & it's been getting rave reviews when I wear it. I think I'd love it more if black pepper wasn't one of my least favorite notes ever. It's very versatile too, not as sexualized as NdN. I tend to wear CF in the daytime & NdN @ night. I can wear this at night, but I could never wear NdN in the daytime.
IMO if U can get in on a split or buy this discounted, then do so for more variety in your wardrobe. It's similar to NdN but not so much AS to make owning it a redundant exercise. It is a very good fragrance, not great or the masterpiece that NdN is. U'll enjoy it if U dont hv to pay an arm & a leg. Cheers!
