About this deal

The longevity is abnormal, I can detect this scent the next day on both the skin and clothing, I can smell it on my shirts after they’ve been washed and are blowing on line! It’s an instant super-faint skin scent, and I have to bury my nose in my arm straight out of the bottle and breathe deep to get even a hint of this. ENCRE NOIRE incorporates Lalique’s distinctive aesthetic codes, combining luxurious materials and the technical prowess of our master glassmakers.

I know an induviduals unique body chemistry have a role in sillage and longevity, but this stuff is through the roof. Encre Noir is insanely inexpensive, especially for a scent which nears niche territory in terms of uniqueness and the quality of ingredients. THE SCENT: cypress wood is very prominent in opening it’s l reminiscent of wooden furniture to me, dry earthy grassy hay-like vetiver is the main star of the show, I don’t pick up on incense personally, something has a nutty quality to it, very heavy in patchouli from start to finish. Something about this is disconcerting and makes it seem animalic almost with a very pine-ish top nuance.The original Lalique Encre Noire was one of the most avant-garde fragrances of its time, nobody had created something like that before. Purchases are delivered in a unique black box tied with a white ribbon, with the exception of perfumes and candles. I think this is the last straw, I'll stick with my bottle of the original "Encre Noire" and put this in the donation bin.

Picking up the smell in the air reminds me of Chanel's Sycomore which is crazy considering how cheap this bottle is! Many other materials smell great on their own, but vetiver oil has a distinctive and beautiful development. And I know that's probably not a popular opinion, but it's just that: my opinion, so take it for what it's worth (not much). This is the popular younger brother to the refined statesman and I really don't get the name L'Extreme, as there's nothing particularly extreme about it.The magic of this is certainly in the aura, the diffusion that happens at least a foot away, so don't try sniffing it up close or you'll get a plastic smell. I've noticed that the compliments I receive while wearing this comes from a very wide variety of people. At the same time, I got a decant of a few popular fragrances that, based on everything I've heard and read, I had no doubt I would love.

Very slight sweetness to it compared to most other similar perfumes - which is actually a refreshing aspect and confers the "darkness" that everyone talks about. Producto de alta calidad, un aroma espectacular para personas maduras, es como estar en un bosque, duración 6 -7 horas en piel, proyección media a alta.Had 2 bottles of it (2015, 2016), and was recently testing newer batch (2022) and I learned my lesson. Sycomore’s sweet, caramelized edge is very appealing, but if I want to go that route, I would rather reach for something more obvious sweet like Hermes Vetiver Tonka or Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental. Update- after a couple weeks- it is growing on me- The dry down is where it shines and the hints of Orris/ Iris. Vetiver and cypress combine to make this a great office/everyday scent and, other than in very hot weather (I'm a Brit so that means anything over 20°c), it's wearable all year round.

While we strive to provide accurate and helpful information, we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy or reliability of the AI-generated pros and cons. It strongly resembles the evocative smell of walking through the forest on a foggy, misty afternoon during a gentle rainfall.Like most vetivers, Encre Noire has great longevity and presence, but unlike rich flowers or gourmand ambers, it’s not distracting. This is synthetic shadows and disposable pen ink on a bed of Iso E Super, minty cypress, and oozing vetiver.
