New to me
Well, well, well, what is this! Never heard of it before and I'm not convinced this is not a fake product. No notes anywhere, no info on release date; has anyone seen & tried Sahara Noir?
New to me
Although personally haven't heard of it, it looks fine to me.
It appears to be new!
Discussion about it here too: http://www.fragrantica.com/board/viewtopic.php?id=48807
And if more proof were needed, the trademarking info: http://www.trademarkia.com/tom-ford-...-85497278.html
"bergamot, mandarin orange, violet, ginger and basil; middle notes are grapefruit blossom, orange blossom, tobacco and black pepper; base notes are amber, cedar, patchouli, oakmoss and leather."
Found this will be released February 2013.
With a boring notes list like that it's almost impossible to tell what it'll smell like.
Launches may 2013. 50ml only for £100. Similar in scent to the discontinued Amber Absolute. Not a carbon copy but targeting the same market
Its potently smokey- very similar to Amber Absolute. I don't get any citrus at all- just pure smoke. Bottle is gorgeous though.
THese are the main notes: Its centered around Frankincense.
The composition is built around frankincense, which can be found at all three main stages of the development of the fragrance.
Top notes include frankincense, a pristine quality of cistus essence graded Orpur®, bitter orange, Jordanian oasis calamus, Levantine cypress - a reference to the 1001 Arabian Nights.
In the heart we have frankincense essence Orpur® , cinnamon, cool papyrus extract, Egyptian jasmine templar and rose absolute from Morocco. "A beeswax extraction from Burma lends body and a supple, honeyed-animalic richness."
Base notes are ambery, featuring labdanum (labdanum absolute & fractioned ambreinol) – benzoin, vanilla, cedar, frankincense resin, agarwood and balsam.
Has anyone tested this, someone on Fragrantica said it was an exact copy of FK's Absolue Pour le Soir.
Coincidentally i tried this yesterday. A brief spritz on my wrist. I think I'll give it a proper wearing today.
It is allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll about frankincense as the main note. Other notes dance around it throughought.
Lovers of La Fumee, Bois d'Encens & L'Eau Trois keep an eye out.
Please do give a full review! Thanks!
Did anyone else sample this yet?
