    Default NU or BLACK CASHMERE

    Which has a better blend of spice and wood/incense without a definite floral note? Your opinions?

    Black Cashmere.

    I've always found Nu has a stronger floral presence. I also find Black Cashmere to be a better blended, more wearable fragrance.

    Black Cashmere!

    The incense and spice just rocks in BC!

    Nu has a persistent orchid note that lingers for quite a while and I'm talking the EDP here. I have heard that Nu EDT is more floral, yet.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Agree with the previous posters. Nu is much softer and more floral and the wood/smoke/incense notes are much less pronounced.

    I have both, and I like Nu, but I LOVE Black Cashmere.

    As others have noted it's Black Cashmere, hands down. Smooth, spicy and warm and no one note predominates, unlike Nu (edp), which has an overbearing floral note.

    The jasmine note in Black Cashmere becomes quite predominant on my skin. I also find Nu to be a LOT more smokey than Black Cashmere. They are different animals and I love them both.

    WOW, I HEAR AND OBEY! Hehe, just snatched an EdP bottle off eBay, seems like the department stores and Sephora don't carry it anymore...White Cashmere yes, but no more Black. This doesn't really faze me, because most women are crazy about fruity/floral/and vanilla based scents. Gone is the preference for Youth Dew, Opium, Black Cashmere and the likes.
