Both of the fragrances you mentioned are beast on longevity on my skin. Encre Noire has a burned wood (vetiver) scent which last about 8 hours easy on my skin. Lalique Pour Homme is a floral and slightly woody (on the drydown) fragrance. Last about 10 hours easy on my skin. IMO both are nice. Encre Noire can have a love hate relationship with a lot of people. As always....sample first.
