    Jacques Fath
    Yang
    (1999)

    Top Notes: Green Tea, Mandarin, Grapefruit
    Middle Notes: Violet, Vetiver, Cardamom
    Base Notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Cedar

    This smells more green and hay-like (coumarinic) to me than any of the pyramid notes would suggest, I suppose the green tea and cardamom-musk combination might fool my nose into imagining that. This is a very fine and subtly constructed scent. I think some people are put off by the impression that this is not very tea-like; this is immaterial to me, not being much of a tea scents fan. Edwards calls this a woody-oriental, but it has something of a fougère feel to my nose. I find it to have a moderate sillage for a while, but not an extraordinary longevity. Still, I would rate it a pleasant and nicely constructed scent. I find it somewhat reminiscent of 1998's Fath pour l'Homme (Olivier Gillotin, who also did Cereus No.7, Dior Higher, and Higher Black, and the new Ed Hardy Men). I find that same slightly acerbic hay note in pour l'Homme, too; I do think, however, that I find pour l'Homme slightly preferable to this one.

    It's scent syncronization day!

    Encre Noire

    Encre Noir.

    I don't own this but was given a 4.5 ml 'ink bottle' by a friendly SA a while back, which means I have 'dabbed' rather than sprayed - probably not ideal. A few hours in and it's a very enjoyable, workmanlike Vetiver . . .

    Encre Noire has failed to seduce me, but in the spirit of SSD I'll wear another vetiver.

    Encre Noir
    Lalique

    This is rather different to Vetiver Extraordinaire, perhaps slightly more to my tastes. Encre Noir lacks the ozonic accord of VE and is less green.

    I'm not a huge fan of dark vetivers, and that's not likely to change!

    Nathalie Lorson's

    ENCRE NOIRE

    LALIQUE




    ENCRE NOIRE is a dark, tenebrous and dirty blend of vetivers .…but at the same time transparent, gentle and marvelous !!!
    A real gem , a work of art created by Notre Dame Nathalie Lorson for all of us !!!
    I would dare to say that ENCRE NOIRE is my favourite vetiver !
    Merci beaucoup Madame Lorson for having created this wonderful perfume !!!!!
