I received a sample of this along with a whole bag of samples that came in a promo gift with a purchase from Barneys. This was love at first sniff! I thought Noir Extreme for men was nice but the womens’ counterpart is just fantastic!! I ordered a full bottle immediately after trying my sample. I usually give it a day or two to really give a frag a good testing but there was no doubt that this was a fragrance must have. Even my hubby complimented it.
The notes alone would have led me to believe this was more of a white floral fragrance, with the jasmine, orange blossom, and vanilla but this really is a “Noir” fragrance. It’s heavy and thick with the amber vanilla. The sandlewood and mastic really add almost a smokey depth to the whole composition. It’s also spicy but sweet spicy, I imagine from the kulfi. I’ve sniffed hundreds upon hundreds of perfumes and after a while it becomes fewer and farther between that a perfume really makes me stop what I’m doing and say ‘Wow’. But this one wow’d me from the first little spritz of the sample I got with my last frag purchase. Pure magic!
Noir pour femme is an incredibly sexy fragrance- Femme fatale kind of juice and it’s perfect for fall so I can’t wait to get my full bottle in because I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this a lot this season. Completely in LOVE with this perfume! ❤
