    I think it's pretty unique, and although I personally haven't compared the two, some people say it's somewhat similar to Opium Pour Homme.

    Lumiere Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian - One is initially treated to a debonair rose; the mildly sweet fragrance of which is somewhat stunted by the infused anise and nuttiness from the accompanying cumin. This exotic opening flows effortlessly to the heart, where a warm and toothsome cinnamon as well as an earthy and slightly dark patchouli nicely dust the rose with their inviting accessions. Arriving at its waiting base, a bitter and faintly disinfecting artemsia showers the rose, and specks of agreeable narcissus flitter about as its meanders to its enjoyable drydown. A prized gem in one's repertoire, this gorgeous composition, with its fresh and spicy overtures and concomitant sensuousness, has average projection and very good longevity.

    Take Narcisso Rodriguez for Her (EdP) and add some cinnamon and cumin to it. It won't smell like Lumiere Noire (nothing does out there) but that's as close as you'll get.

    Voleur de Roses but only to get an idea not that they're very similar. Roses and patchouli but LNpH is a bit more complex.

    for swap/sale:

    only decent scent this guy has ever come up with. too bad it's plagued by poor longevity and projection.

    Now that's just nasty.

    +1 to NR for her as a similar vibe. LNpH is pure velvet as far as rose & patch goes. Think Barry White.
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    Try Lyric Man by Amouage.

    Just as smooth as LN.

    You're probably getting olfactory habituation. Lumiere Noire lasts for days on clothes and people have complimented me on it with just one spray.

    +1. LNPH is unique and there is no scent that share the same elegant and mysterious feeling. Only way to get out how LNPH smells like is to sample it. And it is worth of it!
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    I agree I have been testing most of the range this past week except for tha Aqua's and I get ten hours plus. And I can even smell the basenotes the next day and APLS even survived a shower.

    Absolue pour le Matin has excellent longevity also. I sometimes can smell it the next Matin.

    LNPH lasts forever. Must be fatigue, because it's a longevity beast.
