    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.

    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 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!

    ENCRE NOIRE

    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 !!!!!

    Posting here, too, today since I just spritzed on some Encre Noir this morning (thanks, petruccijc!) for the Scent Synchronization Day. Mmmm....this is nice! I saved the sample without any pre-sniffing just for today. At first I get cedar sawdust and some rosemary stems (?). It gets softer and sweeter as it dries down, and it has a live branchy smell, like twigs snapped in the woods. I can easily wear this, it isn't deliberately butch smelling, just woodsy and lovely. I find these types of scents calming and "grounding". Lovely, lovely, lovely for the First Day of Autumn.

    How does one send Autumn Equinox greetings? Not by saying "Happy Autumn Equinox", because it's a bit sad going into the dark time of the year. But exciting, too. Well...

    Happy Autumn Equinox! (you know what I mean).

    I love SSDs no having to overthink my choice.

    Lalique Encre Noire

    When many of us start looking around Basenotes one of the first things we discover is the high level of esteem Guerlain Vetiver is held in. For many of us, I am sure, that Guerlain Vetiver is the first vetiver most of us try. From there it becomes a gateway to the number of great vetivers out there. In my estimation Givenchy Vetyver and Guerlain Vetiver were the alpha vetivers, at the beginning, as both came out in the late 50's early 60's. It took until the 21st century for the next evolution to really take place as there are two vetivers that really take those beginnings and move vetiver forward. Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire is one and the other is the 2006 creation by Nathalie Lorson, Lalique Encre Noire. Encre Noire takes vetiver and roughs it up by adding in some woody notes and more particularly a spicy underpinning that makes it a real "Noire" kind of scent. The top of Encre Noire comes in with the sharper edges of vetiver on display and it is balanced with a light wood of cypress and a hint of smokiness. As this develops the vetiver becomes more herbal in nature which adds some greenness to this and here the woods turn softer, in conjunction with the softening of the vetiver. There are also some spicy notes that become more prominent in the heart adding some complementary edginess to the woods and vetiver. The base eschews the woods and brings in a dark sensual musk to pair with the vetiver. This is where I really get the feeling of something happening in the middle of the night and in a good way. Encre Noire has average longevity on me and slightly below average sillage. It wears fairly close to my skin which makes it an ideal going out at night scent for me. If you're a fan of vetiver you have to try Encre Noire. If you're a fan of great perfumery you have to try Encre Noire. This is one of the best perfumes out there.

    Have a Titanic Tuesday everyone.

    [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/NSURES%7E1/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]Happy Scent Synchronization Day everybody!!!! I purchased a sample of this just to participate and I must say that this is a fantastic scent. It doesn't quite feel like a fall/autumn scent but I'm glad I had an excuse to experience it. I wish I was wearing nicer clothes to match this sophisticated fragrance. It has an air of class similar to a Blvgari PH but it has more character and bite.
