Datura Noir is overall a pleasant scent but I think its a bit too feminine for my tastes. White flowers are hit or miss for me. I generally like them when they tie into a beachy feel. I'm surprised that with both coconut and vanilla in the mix this doesn't really come off that beachy/sunscreeny. It's pretty light and powdery (maybe that's the heliotrope/osmanthus?), which to me makes it comes off a bit more feminine than something like Carnal Flower or Soleil Blanc. Worth a try if you like white florals though.

If Datura Noir were a person: Loretta, sixty-something, Las Vegas. She puts on her dress (classy, but showing quite a bit of her ample cleavage) and heads down to the casino. It's one of the older casinos, a little divey, but the drinks are strong and the men are nice to her. She can still turn heads, even if the heads, like her, are getting older. She has a fantastic time, getting louder and more bawdy as she drinks...

So what does Datura Noir actually smell like? Loud, minty tuberose with coconutty ylang over powdery soapy white musk, with a dark cherry cough syrup note that starts upfront but ends up as a dark undertone once the tuberose pushes it out of the way. From a certain angle, this does simulate datura (angel's trumpet), but is, at its heart, a big loud bawdy dame halfway between Fracas and Black Orchid.

I sampled it and bought it directly. It’s like a mix of Hypnotic Poison and Poison Girl, without the strength of the first one and the sweetness of the latest. It’s perfect almond, tuberose and vanilla without being cloying. It’s clean and dark. Gorgeous.
