    Lumiere Noire Pour Homme is one of their nicest scents IMO.

    Lumiere Noire PH reminds me a bit of Kingdom, although much lighter and more transparent.

    This is a bit tricky as it seems quite long lasting and very transparent.
    I am in the process of testing this out, and i'm trouble detecting it after 2-3 hours, seems to fade very quickly and i'm having to sniff my forearm to see if its still there, very transparent and queit after a few hours. I have just been testing this and will give it a full wearing this week. I really love the smell and want it to last so i can justify a purchase.
    Maybe i need to up the sprays of this one? I've read people say 1-2 sprays and it lasts all day on them, is it just a skin scent for everyone?

    ^Thought about the same when i first tried it couple times. Try to spray on abs and inner elbows next time, this is what i get better longevity on those parts instead of my neck.

    The femme version is worth to try as well. It is quite similar to FM's Portrait of A Lady, minus the berries note which replaced by a narcissus note. To me, it smells quite like lychee and perhaps less moody from the overall impression.

    I'll give this a today, when i get it LN its first true wearing. Funny thing is last night i put a spray on my right forearm just to gauge longevity, and this time i sprayed closer to the skin, i usually spray 5-8 inches away from the skin, and this spray i did much closer to the skin and i can still smell it this morning and its been 7 hours. That's a plus! I've never tried spraying in inner elbows or even dawned on me to try the abs...intersting

    I've read reviews of people spraying this 1-2 tops, and for me rose frags like rose oud or lyric man our work horses that can last all day with type of application, but LM i think i need to go 3-5 sprays, but we shall see.

    So i see this wears a bit lighter on others as well, I'm assuming a top off at halftime means you apply mid day?

    I did 2 sprays to mid chest, on on each forearm and one back of neck. I'm 5 hours into my day and I can only detect it of i press my nose up against skin. I can detect a very slight musky scent. But then again I'm wearing long sleeve dress shirt with an undershirt so sprays are all hidden under layers of clothes
