Or Noir is a dusky, sultry, rich rose fragrance--sexy, sexy, sexy! Fragrantica lists the notes as follows: Top notes are iris, mandarin and black currant bud. Heart: gardenia, bergamot, jasmine, May rose, narcissus and lily of the valley. Base: oak moss, vanilla, ylang-ylang and clove. What I smell in it: Top smoky iris (maybe that's the black currant coming in?); heart rose and jasmine; base as fragrantica lists it. It's a smoky floral rose with a spicy oaky base. Lots of mystery in it: if Or Noir were a femme fatale, it would be played by Lauren Bacall. One of my new favourites!

Elegant fragrances are not necessarily sexy. They can be beautiful, but may easily be aloof and cool. Not Or Noir. It manages effortlessly to be both elegant and sexy. It's a quite complex, sophisticated floral that seems most suited to jewel tones and candle light. Or Noir was the perfect name for it. Probably could also add on a little warning label: Do *not* mix with bright pastels - jarring, stomach turning results. Joan Juliet Buck could perhaps pull off wearing it w/ jeans and a loose shirt, but it requires serious "attitude" to do that successfully. I'm afraid I would require an intensive crash course in "attitude" first. The floral notes which are most evident to my nose are the jasmine, iris and ylang ylang, but they are definitely tempered by the tart, fruity notes of tangerine and black currant, the spiciness from the clove and the rich, deep oak moss and vanilla base which gives it a darker feel.
