Reviews of Noa Noa

I have to agree with HOP, remarkable sleeper from 1990. The Citrus start is quite interesting. Grapefruit was being played with during this period along with overdosed Calone. Not Noa Noa with it's Adelhydic Citrus start, Floral bouquet bloom would have me classify it Floral Chypre, however it's fold of Coumarin into Benzoin resin, together with the the Aromatics
sometimes has me scenting Fougere with whispers of an Oriental simil Old Spice. In the end it offers what my nose always craves which is a light powder and soapy matt that has me think more of an Aromatic Chypre.
Of course some Sandal and Rose offer it a soft Savon also.

Overall this one is a well-blended, grand old school, chypre floral with a woody aromatic sideshow within. A multiple personality creation with a kitchen-sink list of notes that smacks of excellence.

The top notes are muddled and squeezed into a potion of minted orange, sweetened galbanum, a trickery of citrus. There is the barest of lipstick accord that seems to almost not want to be recognized.

The heart reveals a similar ghost of a face powder accord. No note here truly wants to be singled out. Noa Noa is a melodic choir of voices. Flowers and resins and wood sing for a higher purpose. They enchant. The only voices that pause for a solo are heliotrope and rose, as in a rendition of Canzonetta sull' aria. One must stop to take notice, this brief appearance.

The base retains a smooth, lighter sweetness with its notes. One can notice Tonka, benzoin, and vanilla as the culprit for that sweet. Light also, are its musk and oakmoss. There is no doubt NN is a woman's perfume. It's an exceptional creation from the 90's.

Noa Noa has been sooooo great! It's such a pity, it's discontinued! It was a very in the face fruity, sweet floral, very, very fruity and delicious. I remember ananas, grapefruit, rose, tuberose and a hint of patchouli. They really should produce it again.
