    Something which is not Prada or Bvlgary


    You are way ahead of me! Thanks for the clarification.

    Raced in TK Maxx and got last bottle in the box of Pecksniffs Zesty Citrus for lonely family male-friend. I didn't have choice anyway, considering I never tried anything from Pecksniffs - very lively. At least will not make him depressed))

    Yardley April Violets- this time, for myself. Though apparently a female fragrance, personally rating it more as unisex.

    My Weil quest continues. The Noir for which I was the sole bidder on ebay has arrived. Like my previous Weil acquisition, Cassandra, it is the work of Jacqueline Fraysse, daughter of Claude Fraysse, he of Zibeline, father and grandfather to notable noses.

    The small bottle, about 5/6 full, weight unmarked(seller guessed 3/4 oz which seems about right) had a firmly attached rubber plug under the cap, suggesting it was never opened; this was removed with some effort, intact with no rubber escaping into the juice. Rubber, nonetheless, figures in. My first impression of Noir is VapoRub, old sneakers, smoke, and resin—we are in jolie-laide territory, one of my favorite places to get lost. That mentholated then rubbery aspect points to tuberose, in the Serge Lutens vein. I poked around for more info and found only this:
    http://thevintageperfumevault.blogspot.com/2010/12/back-to-black-noir-part-ii.html
    The blogger, Amelia puts it thus: "Noir is a perfectly executed tender-yet-seductive floral leather." That's about right.

    Noir(1936) is Cassandra's predecessor by a year; it's contrasting floral/industrial notes are in couterpoint, each in her own corner, whereas Cassandra, using similar notes is more blended and rounded. Both seem to foreshadow the work of Germaine Cellier (Bandit, Miss Balmain and other of Piguet and Balmain) in staking out leather for the feminine repertoire.

    Thanks, Hedonist. I remember reading your comments on it a couple years back, and I think it is safe to say we are in complete agreement. :-)

    Thanks, ScentFan - it's not a very 'rosy' one and different from the others in that line that I've tried - but I liked it enough to buy one as I don't have anything similar.

    Good for you, Ipp. This reminds me to look for mine. I know I have some, too. A charming floral leather.
    I just got some Aoud Queen Roses -,Montale, and several samples, one I'm looking forward to- ​Mona di Orio's Violette Fumee.

    I didn't exactly buy it ... but I won a 30ml bottle of Atelier Gold Leather from one of the perfume blogs! I received notification that it is on the way.

    Top notes are bitter orange, saffron, rum and plum;
    Middle notes are artemisia and eucalyptus;
    Base notes are cedar, guaiac wood, agarwood (oud wood) and leather.
    I've trademarked the color bleu
